With increased activity on the Forest, users must be diligent in safety, respect for other users and be responsible for obeying National Forest laws. The majority of campgrounds and picnic areas on the Forest are closed and will not be open for use until mid May or later. Because there is no garbage pick up, water or bathroom facilities available, the Forest asks users not use the campgrounds and picnic areas until they are officially open.
In order to keep designated roads and trails on the forest open for motorized use, it is important that users respect seasonal closures. Motor Vehicle Use Maps, which show what roads and trails are open to motorized vehicles are available at all Forest offices or can be obtained at http://www.fs.usda.gov/Sawtooth.
Please contact your local Sawtooth National Forest for additional information regarding National Forest lands.
