As an outdoor recreation facility and wanting to protect our Michigan’s natural resources, Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park™ will not allow firewood to be brought in from the outside. There will be a “Zero” tolerance of firewood being brought in. The State of Michigan has asked for our cooperation in following the firewood recommendations: “Buy firewood when you reach your destination and burn it all on-site.” For more information, please see the Firewood Fact Sheet.
