A lottery will be conducted from the first two weeks’ email entries, and the list of wood lottery winners will be exhausted before conducting another one. 

Winners will be contacted by park staff to set up an appointment to obtain the required permit, receive a vehicle and gear inspection, get an orientation to the wood gathering area, and gather the wood. 

Most of the wood has not been cut into manageable lengths and will require a chainsaw. Trailers and vehicles with more than two axles will not be permitted.

Winners who do not respond within 14 days of being contacted by the park will be removed from consideration.

Keep in mind that one permit per physical address will be granted, so only enter one.
