Bennett Lumber Products oversees some 60,000 acres of healthy forestlands. With some exceptions and seasonal restrictions, these lands are open for many recreational opportunities. Hikers, bicyclists, cross-country skiers, equestrians, snowmobiles, and sportsmen are welcome.
If you plan to hunt or fish on Bennett property you are asked to visit our office to obtain a free 'Sportsman's Courtesy Card' permission slip. We will need to know where you plan your activity, your current hunting license number, and the license plate number of the vehicle you plan to use. The card is good for the year of issue only and is only valid on Bennett Lumber lands. All hunting is subject to Idaho Fish and Game regulations.
To protect roads from damage, reduce sedimentation of rivers and streams, and to improve wildlife habitat most of our roads are permanently gated and closed to all vehicle access. Many of our other roads have motorized-use restrictions.
Gates are closed seasonally when road surfaces are soft and vulnerable to damage. This is generally around October 31. Gates are not reopened again until around the first of July. Some roads may be closed to visitors during specific times, such as when there is active logging in the area. This is for your safety.
While most of Bennett Lumber property is open to the public, the 'Moehrle Ranch' and 'Atwater Lake' areas are special management areas and are closed to the public. These areas are clearly posted.
We ask that visitors observe a few general GUIDELINES that will help us protect the resources as well as prevent damage to company assets.
