There was previously restrictions on bringing firewood from neighboring states and from Central or Northern Illinois, but these restrictions have been removed in 2016.  Use of local firewood is encouraged to protect our beloved forest from destructive insects (like emerald ash borer) and invasive disease (like Sudden Oak Death Disease).  

We do sell firewood here at the campground.

The Shawnee National Forest does not have requirements for 'weed-free' hay, so you are free to bring your own from home. We usually have hay for sale, contact us to confirm availability.
