Try camping in an Idaho fire lookout tower - "Sanctuaries at the edge of the Sky"

Full moon, a warm place to sleep and a nice campfire ... how can you go wrong? 
Hi all,

I wrote a story that was published today by VisitIdaho about camping at an Idaho fire lookout. Two friends and I backpacked into Arid Peak Lookout in the St. Joe River Country, near Avery, Idaho, in September. We had a great time!

I was inspired to write this story by a great program on Outdoor Idaho about Idaho fire lookouts that have been restored by volunteers and made available for public rental.

If you'd like to rent a fire lookout, go to and look for an Idaho lookout of your choice. There are about 10-12 of them available to rent statewide. Act early because they book up all summer long!

Have fun!
