Inland Empire Paper Co. - Recreational Use


Recreational Use

Inland Empire Paper Company owns more than 116,000 acres of timberland in northeastern Washington and northern Idaho. Private timberlands like these provide many of the wood products used by the public.

Part of the IEP Forest Management philosophy is to protect the natural resources we all enjoy in these timberland areas and to make these resources available for year-round public recreation and enjoyment. With an IEP Access Permit you and your family can enjoy:

Berry/Mushroom Picking

Firewood Gathering*


Horseback Riding


Mountain Bike Riding

Motorcycle/ATV Riding*

Snowshoeing/Cross Country Skiing

Snowmobile Riding*

Christmas Tree Cutting*
* See downloadable Guide for specific rules and restrictions.

IEP timerlands are closed to all snowmobiles This closure is a direct result of continued damage to young trees from off-road snowmobiling.  IEP will continue to work with local and state organizations to find a long-term solution to the problem. For more information, click here.
