PotlatchDeltic Announces Changes to Idaho Recreation Permits


SPOKANE, Wash.--PotlatchDeltic (NASDAQ: PCH) today announced changes to requirements for recreational permits in Idaho.

PotlatchDeltic recently leased day use recreational access on over 567,000 acres of Idaho timberland to the Idaho Department of Fish and Game. The agreement secures and preserves access to the public for recreational activities such as hunting, fishing, trapping, wildlife viewing, hiking and recreational travel.

Through the agreement, the public is free to recreate on PotlatchDeltic Idaho lands, except for some parcels associated with log yards, mill sites and certain acres listed for sale. Recreational travel is limited to motor vehicle travel on roads open to full sized vehicles. As a result, passenger vehicle permits are no longer required and those who have purchased a passenger vehicle permit from PotlatchDeltic for 2019 will receive an automatic refund. Permits and fees are still required for ATV use, camping and firewood cutting. PotlatchDeltic will also continue its exclusive campsite leases in select areas of North Idaho. PotlatchDeltic general recreation policies and regulations will remain in effect. Additional information can be found at https://idahoaccess.potlatchdeltic.com.


Starting in 2019, PotlatchDeltic began offering exclusive campsite leases in selected areas of North Idaho. The three areas selected for the initial rollout are Gold Center Creek, east of Clarkia, The Dredges on the Palouse River, and Scofield/Washington Creeks, east of Headquarters. Details on the program are still being finalized, but the current plans include:

  • Camping within the three initial areas will only be allowed on the leased sites. Dispersed camping with a PotlatchDeltic permit will still be allowed outside the selected areas.
  • Each campsite is exclusively leased to the leaseholder, so there will be no need to secure the site as soon as access allows each spring.
  • Based on the size of each campsite, a maximum number of RVs at each site will be specified.
  • Multi-RV campsites can be shared with friends and family, however no subleasing of the campsites to third parties will be allowed.
