Welcome to the Caribou-Targhee National Forest
Plan your next adventure...
Caribou-Targhee National Forest occupies over 3 million acres and stretches across southeastern Idaho, from the Montana, Utah, and Wyoming borders.
Bear Creek Road - Palisades Ranger Distict - A part of the Bear Creek Road from the 058/076 junction (Snake River Road) to the 058/619 junction (Calamity Road), which provides access to the Calamity Campground, Day Use Area, Boat Ramp, and several summer home residences, is closed to all traffic. A significant runoff event resulted in water flowing under the roadway, which eroded the road prism, causing one lane to collapse and undercutting portions of the remaining paved lane.
Fire is a part of the Caribou-Targhee National Forest landscape and has been for thousands of years. For current fire information, restrictions, and wildfire updates, visit the links below.

Just outside the mouth of a popular summer tourist attraction, the team tested the efficacy of a potentially lifesaving treatment for bats. The treatment is a vaccine that helps protect the animals from white-nose syndrome, which is caused by a fungal infection. It is one of the most devastating wildlife diseases and has killed millions of bats across North America since its emergence in 2007.
The Great American Outdoors Act gives the USDA Forest Service new opportunities to deliver benefits to the American public through major investments in recreation infrastructure, public lands access, and land and water conservation. These investments improve outdoor recreation and contribute to economic growth and job creation in rural America.
