Here’s another sure sign of spring: The area’s national forest campgrounds are beginning to open up . . .
Warm temperatures are expected to return this week and just in time for the opening of several campgrounds throughout the Flathead National Forest.
Campgrounds at Big Creek, Emery Bay, Holland Lake, Swan Lake, and Tally Lake will open to the public Friday, May 11, along with the Doris Point Boat Launch, according to the Forest Service. Other sites will open later in the month. The Doris Creek and Lost Johnny Campgrounds are scheduled to open May 18. Depending on weather conditions, the Lid Creek Campground is scheduled to open May 24…
Most campsites are first-come first-serve but other can be reserved beforehand. This year reservations can be made online. Or call 1-877-444-6777.
