My husband and I want to take a week trip to Seattle, Vancouver, and Coeur d'Alene but we want to camp. We are thinking of visiting October 1-October 6. I noticed the Coeur d'Alene National Forest is already closed for camping by early October. Can anyone help that's familiar with the area and tell me if there's any other options to camp in the area during that timeframe or if everywhere will be closed by then? Is there usually snow on the ground by then - is that why campgrounds are already shut down? I'm coming from snowy Minnesota but our campgrounds are usually open till the end of October! Thanks in advance for your help!
