The Egin Lakes Campground (Idaho) is opening this Saturday, April 23, for the 2022 camping season.

As per a report, visitors are reminded that the new campground reservation system will be in effect at 26 out of the 48 campsites this season.

Reservations for the 26 sites can be made via www.recreation.gov or by contacting 877-444-6777 and will no longer be offered on a first-come, first-served basis. Reservable sites will be marked “Reservation Only” to avoid any confusion.

The campground is under the management of the Bureau of Land Management’s Idaho Falls District Office and has 48 campsites with electric hook-ups, picnic tables, fire rings, a group picnic shelter, a dump station, and access to potable water. The campsites provide off-highway vehicle enthusiasts with direct access to St. Anthony Sand Dunes.

“We’re eager to open our campground at one of the premier recreation sites in the region,” BLM’s Upper Snake Field Manager Jeremy Casterson said. “We hope by making available some campsites that are reservable and some that are first-come, first-served, we can provide for recreators who like to plan ahead as well as those who like to come at the spur of the moment.”

The yearly Egin-Hamer area closure ends on May 1. The annual closure is done to protect the wintering deer, elk, and moose herds.

Visitors are reminded that motorized travel is restricted to the existing routes and trails, even after the closure is lifted. The sand areas in St. Anthony Dunes are now accessible to off-highway vehicle riders. However, routes in the surrounding sagebrush aren’t currently available for use.

Over 250,000 people visit the dunes each season.

“We’re committed to providing the public with top-notch recreation experiences at the St. Anthony Sand Dunes and hope they have a safe and enjoyable season,” Casterson said.
