Many of Idaho’s camping destinations are controlled by the U.S. Forest Service, which opens campground reservations six months in advance.

Memorial Day weekend — the unofficial beginning of Idaho’s camping season — is May 27-29. If you want to arrive Thursday, that’s May 25.

That means you might have more than just Christmas shopping to handle on Black Friday (Nov. 25).
