How long have you had your Casita. Have you camped in north central Idaho in some of the National Forests? What kind of a tow rig are you using.

Could you recommend some nfs campgrounds along the Ketchum, Salmon, Missoula, Kalispell route. Will be traveling that route next late May, early June. It's hard to tell from rec.gov what really exists.

Find the listing for national forests. Then overlay their boundaries along your route . Then by district bump up the campgrounds and read the descriptions especially the distance off the main highway going by and decide how far off the beaten paths you want to get. That’s what we do anyway. Haven’t exactly been the way you’re describing since we started escaping. We usually cross Idaho between Orofino, Kamiah, Kooskia, up the Lochsa over the Lolo pass and onto Missoula.

Great fiddle woods from the old growth lolo pass forest. I know a maker in Missoula, he jealously guards his wood location. I made a doc film about him

What kind of wood are those fiddle heads made from?
