Good area attractions

This is a pretty decent place to camp. There are other sites in the area that might be a little quieter and less expensive, but I would bump this site up on the list in terms of how easily it is to get to some of the attractions in the area! The giant cedars and Elk River Falls are a must stop if you head this way. It can be crowded, and a little noisy. Interesting plants and mushrooms to see, depending on time of year!

Good location but Overpriced

This is a small campground near a neat grove of giant cedars (about 10 miles). All sites have electricity and cost $20, which is expensive by Idaho standards if you have a tent. The campground has some large trees which provide shade and separation between sites. There is good dispersed (read free) camping on the same road leading to the cedar grove park, which is well worth visiting. The dispersed sites have fire rings and there are outhouses ever couple of miles.
