Places To Camp This Summer
With more than 600 campgrounds and a lot diversity of scenery to choose from, Idaho offers some of the best RV campgrounds in the country.
63 percent of the land in Idaho is managed by the Federal government for public use. The National Park Service and the US Forest Service both manage great RV public parks throughout the state that allow camping in the desert and forested wildernesses.
For my wife and I, early in the season we head South of Boise to Glen’s Ferry or Bruneau Sand Dunes. It is warmer there for spring camping. C.J. Strike is great to be on the water, but it always seems to be windy.
Once you get past the 4th of July and the warm weather, we head North to Cascade and McCall. It’s a quick and easy drive…minus Horseshoe Bend Hill, so it takes a couple of hours to set up the 5th wheel.
Lake Cascade is great because of the selections. South of the Reservoir, there are always openings. The West side has more wildernesses and the East side has the best fishing.
Whereever you head this summer, take time out to enjoy the history of the smaller towns in the area and always be careful with fire.
