Personal use firewood will be available on the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area beginning Tuesday in the Eagle Creek picnic area parking lot. Several large log decks are left over from cleanup activities following a large landslide that took place in mid-February 2021. Scenic Area Public Affairs Officer Karen Davis says the wood is available for personal use only and is free, but a firewood permit is required. Contact the Hood River Ranger District at 541-352-6002 to get permit information. Access to the site is from 8 a.m.to 6 p.m., and only wood located in decks on the pavement may be removed. Permit, load tags, map, and information sheet must always be with you. Wood quantities are limited and not guaranteed. The Eagle Creek recreation site and trail remain closed, and access to the parking lot is authorized for firewood removal only.
