Last updated September 23, 2021 by Totally Boise

Just because summer is coming to an end, does not mean your adventure has to. Wild Experience Gear has what you need to be prepared for your autumn explorations, and the best places you should explore.

Never go into the woods without being prepared. Yes, the natural and rugged terrain of Idaho has an unmatchable beauty, but without preparation, it can be quite unforgiving. Acting as a toolbox and lifeline for your next camping experience, Wild Experience Gear Medical Kits are made to keep adventurous Idahoans safe.

4 Camping Spots to Explore Before the Snow Falls

The cooler, crisp autumn air is coming in and pushing out the smoke from the late-summer fire season. With the clean and refreshing air and beautiful fall colors, many campers believe autumn is the best time to experience Idaho’s national forests. As the leading safety expert for camping, hunting, and outdoor excursions, the Wild Experience Gear team has explored its fair share of national forests. Here are some of the best fall camping experiences around the Treasure Valley, according to the Wild Experience Gear team:

1. Boise National Forest

Whether you are an experienced mountaineer or new to camping, the Boise National Forest has everything you need to make memories under the stars! Boise National Forest is easily accessible from the Treasure Valley. Being less than 30 minutes from Boise, you won’t believe the great mix of high desert, green forest, and flowing rivers. If you don’t want to “rough it” in a tent, there are many van and RV camping opportunities available.

2. Craters of the Moon National Forest

Typically when Idahoans think of camping, they think of tall evergreens and mountainous landscapes. But, Wild Experience Gear doesn’t want you to discount the atypical beauty of Idaho’s deserts - especially the lava fields in Craters of the Moon National Park. The rocky terrain of many Eastern Idaho camping spots leaves way for awe-inspiring skies filled with endless stargazing and magnificent sunrises and sunsets. With the unique moon-like landscape left behind by ancient lava flow from the now-dormant volcanic area in combination with Idaho’s endless skis, this camping opportunity will bring you to a new plant.

3. Payette National Forest

There is a reason many famous Treasure Valley businesses, like Payette Brewing and Payette River Company, references the beautiful Payette National Forest. With the famous 83 mile stretch of the Payette River weaving through national forest lands throughout Idaho, it is an iconic part of Idaho’s landscape - so iconic to have a national forest! The Payette National Forest provides easy access to mountainous lakes and all the activities that come along with them.

4. Sawtooth National Forest

Although Idaho residents heavily appreciate the Sawtooth National Forest during the summer, it is quite quiet after Labor Day. There is nothing like seeing the snow-capped mountains towering over the rural Sawtooth Valley landscape. Wild Experience Gear doesn’t want you to let the fact that the Sawtooth Mountains is one of the coldest places in the continental U. S. steer you away. The cool crisp environment in the autumn months gives life to unique animals, plantlife, and scenery. The humbling mountains are home to some of Idaho’s most extreme excursion opportunities and accessible campgrounds - that you will want to be prepared for.
