Although campfires are often an integral part of the camping experience, Fairfax CountyPark Authority does not permit patrons to use or store firewood at Fairfax County Park Authority parks unless the firewood was provided by FCPA. Firewood can house nonnative invasive insects and diseases that can be destructive to the natural resources in our parks. Transporting firewood from one area to another can lead to the spread of forests pests and diseases which may kill trees and destroy or alter natural communities. Emerald ash borers, Asian longhorned beetles, oak wilt, and others can all be introduced or reintroduced to FCPA parks by moving firewood. Even if firewood has no apparent signs of insect damage or disease, the wood could still be host to these damaging threats. Pursuant to Virginia Code § 10.1-1142, camp fires are prohibited between 12a.m. – 4p.m. from February 1 through April 30.
