Firewood permits are now available for two locations near Red Feather Lakes, on the Canyon Lakes Ranger District, including:
· Dowdy Lake Campground
· Manhattan Road/171 road system
Cost for the permits is $20 a cord and the timeframes for these locations vary. Visitors can purchase permits at the Visitor Information Center located at 2150 Centre Ave., Building E in Fort Collins.
In the campgrounds the wood is stacked in 4’ lengths. In the Manhattan Road area, trees have been felled and limbed but need to be bucked with a chainsaw for removal.
Later this summer additional areas are expected to open, including additional campgrounds. The firewood in campgrounds was created from hazardous trees being cut and left to cure.
