Kings Canyon National Park has around 20 cords of surplus wood that is now available by permit to the public.
The wood is available on a first-come first-serve basis until the supply is gone or snowfall hinders access to the Dorst wood yard.
Firewood permits can be obtained at the Lodgepole Visitor Center from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and must be purchased before the wood can be removed. Permits are in effect within 30 days of purchase.
The cost is $10 per cord with a limit of six cords per family each year. There is no entrance fee into the national park through Sunday, Aug. 28, in honor of the National Park Service’s 100th birthday.
If you cut your own wood, you must stop by the Lodgepole Visitor Center and ask for a ranger to assist you to the wood yard.
