If by “camping in the backwoods” you mean you’ll be packing in to your campsite then leave the hatchet. Extra weight you don’t need, a lot of national parks restrict campfires, where there is adequate fuel for a backcountry fire dead branches are easily broken by hand and make a satisfactory fire. Even a small hatchet is too much weight given it’s usefulness in national park backcountry. I’ve gotten by for 40 years with just a 3” folding knife.

If car camping, take an ax.
