State park wood sale is Sept. 11

Staff Reports

Permits will go on sale Sept. 11 for the Nevada Division of State Parks’ annual wood sale. The sale starts at 8 a.m. at a new location: the main lobby of the Richard H. Bryan State Office Building located at 901 S. Stewart St. in Carson City.

Permits are $50 per cord – cash or check only – and are limited to two cords per address/family. Approximately 200 permits will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. The sale will end at 11 a.m. or once all permits are sold.

The wood consists of a mixture of pine and fir, some seasoned and some green. Most of the wood is approximately 18 inches, although some odd sized and large rounds are possible.

The pick-up schedule will run from Sept. 18 through Oct. 4. Available wood amounts and scheduling will vary by location.

There are three available pick-up locations: the North Canyon area near Spooner Lake; the vicinity of Hobart Reservoir via Lakeview Road in Carson City; and the Van Sickle Bi-State Park on the south shore of Lake Tahoe.

Trailers are allowed, though four-wheel drive vehicles are required for the Hobart Reservoir pick-up location and strongly encouraged for the other locations.
