  • PotlatchDeltic Announces Lift of Recreational Vehicle Ban in Idaho Public Access


    On Monday, September 20, 2021, PotlatchDeltic Corporation lifted the temporary motorized vehicle ban on Idaho Public lands that had been in place since July 22, effective immediately. Due to recent rainfall and lower temperatures in the region, fire risk has declined. 

    Motorized recreational vehicle use on Idaho property is permitted, except for a temporary restriction in cooperation with Idaho Department of Lands on the Bingo Creek Road. Earlier this month, PotlatchDeltic and the Idaho Department of Lands jointly announced the temporary closure of Bingo Creek Road and all its tributaries. Until December 31, 2021, this narrow one-lane road will remain closed to all recreational activities and public entry

    Campfires are permitted at leased campsites, however, campfires in other locations remain banned until the open burning season starts on October 20 per regular policy.

    PotlatchDeltic urges all visitors to Idaho’s forests to exercise extreme caution in regards to fire while recreating.
