With the 4th of July weekend right around the corner, the Bitterroot National Forest is a great place to get away from the noise of fireworks and enjoy your holiday.  A few considerations will help ensure everyone’s safety and enjoyment, according to Public Affairs Director Todd McKay. His comments are attached.

All campgrounds on the Forest are open (except Spring Gulch on the Sula Ranger District) and ready for visitors.  Campgrounds fill up quickly.  For a complete list of campgrounds and to determine if your favorite campground is one in which you can reserve a site, visit our Forest website at www.fs.usda.gov/bitterroot and click on the Recreation/Cabins and Campingsections.
