Importation of Firewood
Barron County and the City of Cumberland have banned the importation of firewood from outside of the county. Wood for campfires can be purchased from campground caretakers or local firewood outlets. (You must have a receipt!)
Boat Launch Fee
Waldo Carlson Park (Red Cedar Lake) and Veteran Memorial Park (Prairie Lake) have a $5.00 daily or a $20.00 seasonal boat launch fee. Boat launch permits can be purchased at the parks from the park caretakers.  Seasonal permits can be purchased on this site by choosing PERMITS on the navigation menu on the left.  Please present proof of purchase to the park caretaker at either Waldo Carlson Park or Veterans Memorial Park between May 1st and September 30th to receive your numbered sticker.  The numbered sticker entitles the purchaser to unlimited in-and-out boat launch privileges at both Veterans Memorial and Waldo Carlson Parks during the 2024 boating season.
