    Sounds like bringing a hand saw and cutting dead firewood off of one of the many old turnouts off the road is the way to go. The park doesn't (or at least did not) consider kiln dried wood scraps like board ends "firewood" so my past approach was to bring some scraps from the shop for firelighting and then supplement wood purchased from the campground with wood I cut along the road on the way back from a hike. It is surprising that RB campground was not full during the week. Maybe a shift to shorter term visits?

    It was not terribly full 4th of July week either. I tried booking a site/lean to at South Branch for AUG and SEP vacations and it was pretty well booked with the exception of stray nights here and there at various sites.
