    Important: Due to the recent discovery of the Emerald Ash Borer in Wisconsin, Waukesha County is no longer allowing campers to transport firewood into the campgrounds. The Emerald Ash Borer is considered a major economic threat to Wisconsin’s Ash Trees, and spreads easily via firewood. All of Waukesha County’s parks with campgrounds sell firewood, and we are requiring campers to buy their firewood from the park where they will be staying. Thank you for your cooperation.
