The log sled is a multi-purpose moveable storage building that was added in update v0.07 of The Forest.


The Log Sled can be used to store and transport logs, rocks, sticks, torsos and bodies. The Log Sled is immune to almost everything in the game: cannibals, mutants, physical attacks, explosives and possibly more. If you wish to remove a log sled, you can use the Hole Cutter. The log sled also has an purple overlay flag icon.


The log sled can carry the following items and their amount:
IconLog.png Log - 12
IconStick.png Stick - 58
GameIcon-Body.png Corpse - 3
IconRock.png Rock - 26

To place sticks, rocks, logs, bodies, or torsos, press C onto the sled. With sticks and rocks you can use R to cycle between the two. To pick up any of the mentioned items, press E on the item.



Can be built underwater! (shallow water) Fully Functional too!

Known Bugs[]

  • When positioned awkwardly, and equipped/pushed, the log sled will glitch, and show the player's hand still holding whatever tool was previously equipped. If an attempt is made to let go of the sled, you will promptly fall through the map.
  • Sometimes it will not show you can let go, making it almost impossible to get rid of it. When you come back from saving and exiting, the log sled will be gone.
  • When opening a saved game, it is possible that the sled will spawn in the air some ways from its original location, and fall.
  • Occasionally entering or exiting caves may cause some sleds to disappear.
  • The sled doesn't fit through doors, but if the player tries to equip it from the other side of the door then he and the sled might be catapulted into the air allowing him to "hop the fence" with the sled and thus free it in case the sled has been walled in without the need to destroy a wall (experienced in version 0.19).
  • If constructed in multiplayer, it will created a sled for each player that can be maneuvered for log teleportation/infinite logs.
  • Sometimes you can not pick up logs from the Log Sled in multiplayer.
  • If you transferred a SP/MP save to MP/SP, most sleds will not work. (you cannot control them anyways)
  • Sometimes if let go onto a non-flat surface, the sled can glitch and go flying in the air away from the player a pretty good distance.
  • If sprinting onto uneven ground with the sled equipped, it is possible to be catapulted into the air. This can prove to be fatal if low on health, otherwise it will deal massive damage upon landing.
  • The grab function will fail to activate 'grabbing' the sled, and render it unusable.
  • Torsos and corpses cannot be placed on log sleds in multiplayer.
  • Being damaged while using the log sled may result in complete loss of interactions with various objects including shelters, log sleds, log pickups etc. Using a holecutter to destroy the last log sled used may resolve this issue.
  • Player pushing it can be launched in the air when passing through Blackberry bush.
