Memorial Day weekend campground openings planned

 

Boise, Idaho, May 22, 2018 — Boise National Forest visitors headed to the Forest in celebration of Memorial Day can expect cool temperatures with a chance of rain. Temperatures in higher elevations are much cooler and conditions can change very quickly. Please call the District for updates. Many campgrounds and roads in the higher elevations are closed due the remaining snow pack including Deadwood Reservoir, Bull Trout Campground and Trinity Recreation area.  Forest managers ask everyone to be extremely careful near waterways. River banks may be unstable and roads are easily damaged in muddy conditions.
