The discovery of the invasive emerald ash borer in Wisconsin in early August, 2008 caused changes to how firewood and other wood products can be moved within our state. It also served as a stark reminder of how firewood can harbor many different kinds of invasive pests and diseases that are harmful to Wisconsin's trees both in forest and urban settings. Gypsy moth, oak wilt, and the emerald ash borer are just a few examples of pests and diseases that hitch hike on firewood, making their way easily into previously unaffected, healthy areas. This poses a serious threat to trees throughout the state. To protect Lake Joy Campground, we have instituted new guidelines recommended by the DNR to prevent the spread of invasive species and diseases. We do not allow any outside firewood to be brought onto the campground unless it has been purchased from a state certified wood supplier. Burning only state certified wood will hopefully protect Lake Joy Campground from any pests and diseases.
If requested, vehicles carrying wood may be inspected to ensure compliance with Lake Joy Campground's firewood rules. Firewood that does not comply with the above rules will be confiscated.
