Accommodation Options

These are only suggestions. If they don’t work for your trip, feel free make your own plans.

Wild camping is allowed in National Forests, however, check alerts and notifications for closures and fire bans:

If you plan to have a campfire, get a campfire permit and bring a copy of it with you.

Also, only a few campgrounds have bear boxes. Therefore, you’ll need to an Ursack or another effective bear/food strategy. Do not leave food out. It leads to bears being killed for loosing their fear of humans.
