Instead of keeping some of their campgrounds closed after Labor Day, Coeur d'Alene River Ranger District is extending a trial season for some of their campgrounds, keeping them open and free for public use.
“We’ve had requests to open the campgrounds in the fall to accommodate both hunters and people who enjoy fall camping. This year we decided to experiment with an extended season to determine how much use these sites would receive after Labor Day,” said deputy district ranger Kimberly Johnson.
For the fall season, Big Hank and Bumblebee campgrounds will be open for free public use through October 31st. Visitors are required to bring their own water and pack out their own trash. Outhouses will remain open for use.
