Fallout 76 builds on the settlements and base systems introduced in the last game. The cool thing here is that you can build a Camp wherever you want, provided you have the right materials that is. For the majority of building parts you’ll need wood, a lot of it. And while wood is a pretty common material out in the wild, there are very few places where it is found in large quantities. Luckily for you though, we’ve been busy scavenging the wasteland for the best wood farming spots, so that you head straight for them. In this Fallout 76 Wood guide, we’ll go over the best place to get wood in Fallout 76, and list some of the other ways you can pick it up as well.

Fallout 76 Wood Farming Locations
Wood is found all over Appalachia, but it can be hard to find it in large quantities. There is one spot that has a ton of wood though, and also plenty of other ways to get your hands on it. You’ll definitely be needing it too, given how the majority of building components require wood, as does boiling water and cooking food. Let’s take a look at the best place to get wood in Fallout 76.
Fallout 76 Wood Farming - Sylvie and Sons Logging Camp
So let’s get down to it. If you’re looking to pick up as much wood as possible in a very short time, you need to head to Sylvie and Sons Logging Camp. You can check out its location on the map below:
Head to this location, and check inside the tent on the northern side of the area. It’s a relatively small area so spotting the piles of logs either side won’t be a problem. All you need to do is move around the pile tapping X/A, you’ll gather just over 150 pieces of wood per run.
There’s more in this area too. If you take a peek into the back of the pickup truck you’ll find yet more piles of logs. There’s even a bunch of downed trees in the surrounding area too, so you can grab that as well.
Once you’ve looted the area of all its wood, just quit the server and load back in. All of the wood will respawn, and you can just keep going to your heart’s content. As we mentioned before, you’ll manage around 150 scraps per run, and you’ll likely want to head back to your stash box every now and then to offload. We recommend moving your Camp nearby, which will save you Caps on fast travelling back to the area from your Camp.
Other Ways to Get Wood in Fallout 76
In addition to the wood farming method described previously, there are some other great places to get wood in Fallout 76. We’ve listed them below, and feel free to chime in with your tips in the comments.
- Downed trees in forest areas

Fallout 76 Woodchucker Perk
If you’re really serious about gathering large amounts of wood in Fallout 76, you’ll want to seek out the Woodchucker Perk. It doubles the amount of wood collected from logs. When combined with the farming method above, you’ll be bringing in huge amounts of wood. It’s a Luck Perk, so just put points in and hopefully you’ll draw it as a Perk.
