Welcome to the Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest
The forest provides timber, minerals, and grazing lands. It also offers breath-taking scenery for a wide variety of recreational pursuits. Whether it's wilderness trekking in the Anaconda-Pintler or Lee Metcalf wildernesses, driving the Gravelly Range Road or Pioneer Mountains Scenic Byway, or camping in one of the 50 small to medium-sized campgrounds in the forest, the Beaverhead-Deerlodge has it all.
Effective January 1st, 2023, firewood and other special forest products including botanicals and mushrooms will be provided to the public for personal use without a fee. (This does not include Christmas Trees). Although there is no fee, a permit is still required. Permits can be obtained by calling district offices. Permits are being required to assist the Forest Service with tracking harvest information and to allow for sharing of important wildfire safety and firewood collection information.
