Summer’s not done yet!


Have you noticed the days are growing noticeably shorter and area teachers are preparing to their return to the classroom? Both are signs summer is quickly drawing to a close.

Maybe a good way to postpone the inevitable end of summer is a weekend camping trip to one of our area’s many beautiful campsites.

Whether you enjoy hiking or biking, swimming or fishing, there is something for everyone camping at area lakes or along the St. Joe River.

Heyburn State Park boasts some beautiful campgrounds and plenty of activities to for the entire family. It’s also close enough to stores and restaurants, that if you forget something, it can be found with a quick trip to town. Most of the sites are easily accessed from State 5. For more information you can visit their website.

If you’re more interested more remote or rustic campsites, check out the campgrounds up the St. Joe River. All of the campsites are open. The St. Joe Campground located just 10 miles from St. Maries.
