Must See Camping Spots In Idaho

Tents, bags, treats, and a little campfire.  Here are some must see camp sites you might not know about.

 


Saddleback Lakes / Sawtooth Mountains

Easy access. You can get their by boat or hiking.  The granite walls make for great technical climbing and this spot is close to Redfish Lake which offers up some of the best fishing in the state.  The scenic mountain views are my favorite.

 


Snowpeak / Wallace

A 9.6 mile there and back moderate hike near Wallace, Idaho keeps most people away.  And that’s how the die hard campers like it.  The trail is usually open from July through September.

 


Phi Kappa / Pioneer Mountains

Located near the Big Lost River in the Pioneer Mountains, the elevation is close to 8,000 feet which means it’s almost always cold at night.  It does get warm in the day.  There’s lots of tall, rugged mountains a bit similar to Devil’s Bedstead.

 


Wendover / Kamiah

This campground is along a stretch of land with the Wild and Scenic Lochsa River off the Northwest Passage Scenic Byway and US Highway 12 at mile post 158.2.  Twenty seven camp sites that all have a mature, covered moss forest centered around a small stream.

 


Pine Creek / Victor

This site sets along a very small creek on the road from Victor, Idaho to the highway along the South Fork of the Snake River below Palisades Reservoir.  RV’s will struggle with this terrain and should probably not even attempt the trek.

 


Cayuse Creek / Pierce

Hikers are always close to a clear mountain stream where you’ll find some of the best trout waters for fly fishing in Idaho.  Cayuse Creek was named by two trappers back in 1887 when they dropped into a drainage and found a pony, or cayuse, that had wintered there.
