Forest Service announces availability of firewood permits
March 26, 2018
Firewood permits for the 2018-2019 season will be available beginning April 2, 2018 on the Idaho Panhandle National Forests. A Personal Use Firewood Permit is required if you wish to take firewood home. Gathering wood for a campfire does not require a permit.

Fuelwood permits are $20 for a minimum of four cords. Permits are available at any of the Idaho Panhandle National Forests Ranger Stations, Supervisor’s Office, and some local vendors. For more information, please contact your local Forest Service office or visit the webpage at

Visitors traveling on forest roads are encouraged to be mindful of changing conditions and snow at higher elevations. Excessive snowmelt causes road shoulders to be “soft” and unstable. Please avoid driving on soft roads and be aware that out sloped icy mountain roads can increase risk of sliding off the road, particularly when passing another vehicle.
