"The echoes of beauty you've seen transpire, resound through dying coals of a campfire."—Ernest Hemmingway
We all love to sit around a warm campfire on a cool summer night and we know how much this experience adds to the overall pleasures of camping. As a campground providing this enjoyment, we have an important responsibility to protect and preserve our environment and minimize risk of injury. We must do our part to prevent the spread of invasive insects, such as the gypsy moth and Asian Long Horn Beetle. Therefore, we have instituted the following policy on the use of firewood in our campground.
Campers may not bring their own firewood into our campground.
Campers may purchase locally bundled firewood at our campground.
Seasonal campers must obtain firewood loads from a non-infected source, locally obtained and approved by management.
Campers may collect kindling from the wooded areas of the park, but may not use a chainsaw or an axe without express written permission from Clayton Park.

THANK YOU FOR PROTECTING OUR FORESTS!
