Firewood Information

In an effort to protect Yosemite from invasive species, it is advised that you purchase your firewood at or near your camping destination.  Firewood can carry insects and diseases that threaten the health of Yosemite’s environment.  You can make a difference by buying and burning your firewood locally.  Local firewood is available at most stores in Yosemite.  For more information, visit the National Park Service website.
