Camping season is fast approaching..did you know you can rent a fire lookout for camping in Idaho? Now you can even purchase a fire lookout with the most amazing views in Idaho along with 13 acres…Don’t know what a fire lookout is, take a look.
Fire lookouts used to be placed all throughout Idaho’s national forests and manned during the summer to keep a lookout for forest fires. It allowed firefighters to get a quick jump on fires before they turned into big fires. Due to technology, these lookouts are no longer needed, but a lot are still around and some are available for rent for camping in the summer…and the views are amazing.
