Enjoy America's first dark sky reserve on your summer camping trips

May 20, 2018View for printing

The glittering diamonds of the Milky Way over the Sawtooth National Recreation Area will be preserved for future stargazers, as the International Dark-Sky Association in December approved the nation's first dark sky reserve.

The 1,416-square-mile reserve also includes the communities of Stanley, Ketchum and Sun Valley. It is the 12th such reserve worldwide, and the third largest.

And it's less than three hours from Boise in the mountains of Central Idaho, an easy car trip away.
