Idaho Panhandle National Forests prepare to open campgrounds | Silver Valley News

The Forest Service Staff on the Idaho Panhandle National Forests is preparing campgrounds for forest visitors in alignment with state orders and federal phased reopening plans. 

Many Recreation areas and campgrounds will open on May 30. Others will open later in the summer as conditions allow.

“Camping, picnicking, hiking and many other outdoors activities are summertime favorites. We look forward to welcoming visitors back to these facilities to support these activities,” said Jeanne Higgins, Idaho Panhandle National Forests Supervisor.

“We continue to encourage forest visitors to follow local, state, and federal guidelines on staying safe.”

Those with existing cabin rental and lookout reservations through will be notified via email and/or text message if there are any changes.

Please be aware that rentals and lookouts will not be cleaned in between use. As in previous years, it is up to the individual renters to bring their own cleaning supplies, and to clean before and after use of the site.

Trails and trailheads remain open. Please continue to practice social distancing and respect others on the trail.
