Boise National Forest


Edna Campground is located 56 miles northeast of Boise, Idaho, in a scenic Ponderosa pine forest along Highway 21 at an elevation of 5,700 feet. Wildlife and summer wildflowers are abundant. Historic Idaho City is just 18 miles south. Crooked River runs near the site, offering whitefish and rainbow trout fishing. This campground contains 11 sites. Picnic tables, utility tables, and fire rings are provided, along with two vault toilets and a water pump. The site is in an open area with shade. Parking spurs are graveled. Due to its proximity to the highway, some noise from passing traffic is to be expected.Highway 21, also known as the Ponderosa Pine Scenic Byway, snakes along Mores Creek to Mores Creek Summit, Gold Fork, and Banner Ridge with breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains and forest. Numerous trail opportunities are in the area, offering hiking, biking, horseback riding, and ATVing. In winter, the area becomes a playground for backcountry skiers and snowmobilers.__


Single sites have one picnic table, one fire ring, one utility table, and one tent pad. Double sites have two picnic tables, one tent pad, one fire ring, and two utility tables. There are two vault toilets and a water pump on-site. No trash service: pack-in, pack-out.

Great jump off to the woods

This is a great little campground just north east of Idaho City by 20 minutes or so. Steep winding drive the last 10 miles. This campground is near the summit and about 5,000 ft so it can get cool at night even in the summer. From here great access to many Forest roads, rivers, and hiking and ATV riding.

Ranger review: Banner and Oak life straw water bottle at Edna creek campground Idaho. 

Campground review

These campgrounds are pretty nice. They had snow early on in the season and it was pretty chilly when we were there. It's not a bad drive from Boise ID as long as the roads aren’t icy. The bathroom was nice enough as you can see in the pictures, but it is just a pit. It is free at least in the off season no guarantees in season. There is a dumpster, but you can’t use it in the winter. The sites are nice and large enough for a medium size family there is a picnic table and a pole to hold a trash bag or a lantern which is very nice. The fire ring was nice but not very deep because of past fires. We had a nice little creek running right near our site. The campground was not very busy so we had no trouble getting a spot and if it had been full there were other places we could have gone with no trouble.

 Product review 

As a Ranger for The Dyrt, I get products to test from time to time. Today, I am testing the Life Straw Water Bottle as sold on Banner and Oak. Lifestraw Water Bottle at Banner and Oak. The water bottle is very nice looking. It does exactly as stated on the Banner and Oak site. You just fill the water bottle with flowing water. Screw the cap on and then drink the water through the straw. It does need a little more suction power to pull the water through the filter, which is noticeable but, not a big problem. Fair warning the water did taste different than tap water, but I think this is to be expected with any filter. One really cool thing about this water bottle is that for every bottle purchased they give clean water to a school child in Africa for a whole year. This is a huge bonus! This bottle is ideal for camping and hiking adventures. It is also, a good emergency essential.
