What U Need to Know B4 U Go
I love the Treasure Valley because you can head out and within 30 minutes or less be hangin’ out fishing, camping or hiking. But since we are heading into fire season, before you pack up the picnic or load up the camper, take a couple of minutes and check out the official site that’ll let you know about any fire affected road and campground closures. Because, trust me, the last thing you want to be doing after dark is driving around with a bunch of hungry kids, a wound up dog (squirrel!) that won’t stop panting and a grumpy hubby trying to find a campground that’s open since the one you’d reserved is closed due to high fire danger. Also, it’s a good idea to know whether or not a campfire will even be allowed just in case your kids have their hearts set on toasting up some marshmellows for smores. Get caught with an open fire when it’s banned and you could get a fine or accidently spark a grass or forest fire.
