We are heading up next Thursday for 3 days of camping and was wondering if there is a ban on bringing wood for camp fires. Camping on Cut Foot in the Deer Lake sites... Any info would be appreciated.. Thanks

the state passed a ban on importing firewood onto state properties, including but not limmited to state opperated campgrounds.

any wood brought into state campgrounds will not be allowed unless it is obtained from a certified wood vendor.

this year it will only be a warning, but next year it will be a stiff fine. $150.00 I think.

my kids sell firewood to the local campers and as soon as we heard about this, we thought it was going to end their little buisness.

on the contrary, it has and will continue to help them.

we filled out the application to become certified wood vendors and now have certified campfire wood on hand, available for campers.

along with the wood, the campers will recieve a reciept, identifying the wood vendor, (us) as the source of their firewood.

we charge nothing extra for this service.

my kids get $2.00 a bundle for the wood.

the money they make goes into a jar that they have set aside to buy a horse, which personaly I hope it doesnt happen...like we need another animal around here smirk.gif

[Note from admin: Please read forum policy]

the man from the state that we talked to about becoming certified vendors told us that we were the first in the area to become certified.

he also told us that they were told in a meeting to be very aggressive on the enforcement of this new law.

if you have not yet heard of this, you will soon.

I hope this helps.

good camping!

I leave in 72 hours for South Deer Lake...

Wood is for sale up at the Camp Host...

The last 3 years for a bundle it cost $3, $2, $2...

We average 3 Bundles a day.

I lugged wood up there the first year... IMO... Not worth the effort and possible implications in Tongue weight problems, and added gas cost.

      I crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
