CAMPING -- A campground north of Priest Lake remains closed this spring after a giant tree fell in a violent August windstorm and killed a man in his tent.
The Stagger Inn Campground near the Roosevelt Grove of Ancient Cedars is still being evaluated for unstable trees and tree removal to make it safe, Idaho Panhandle National Forest officials say.
The campground has been closed since Aug. 26, along with the associated cedar grove, Granite Falls and the trail system.
The Forest Service is trying to remove the remaining hazards in order to open the recreation site for the busy summer season.
