Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, March 27, 2020 – Effective March 28, many or most developed campgrounds and certain other recreation sites on the Idaho Panhandle National Forests will be closed until further notice for the health and safety of visitors and staff. A full list of restricted areas is available below. Read the full closure order here.

As we work through an unpredictable and rapidly changing situation, the health and safety of visitors, as well as Forest Service employees and volunteers is our number one priority. We are working to meet the guidelines for cleaning and to promote social distance per Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). To support these efforts, rental cabins will be temporarily closed to public entry indefinitely until further notice and will be closed and unavailable to rent via Recreation.gov. Notification to cabin renters will be made as soon as possible and refunds will be processed.

We are committed to continuing to support our communities
