My favorite campground!

Beautiful campground! Lots of hiking & fishing opportunities!

excellent camping experience

Short drive off the highway but no highway noise. Found a beautiful FCFS spot the first weekend in August. You have nice white noise from the creek and there's nice shade. The outhouse and camp site was very clean, and the camp host very friendly. It's a quarter mile hike to the hot springs. There's a stocked fishing pond 6 miles down the highway.

Convenient and clean

We visited in the off-season, so camping was free, but amenities were limited. We took our tiny homebuilt teardrop camper (no hook ups). The stream was going strong and added great white noise. There were quite a few other visitors. There's a short walk to the hot springs, but they were great -- and very hot! I'd totally recommend this campground. There weren't a ton of sites, and I'd bet it gets full quickly in the summertime.

Sometimes muddy but worth it!

This is another hot spring campground. The hot spring is a short hike out, and camp sites are scattered along the way. You decide how close you want to be to your car or the hot spring. The hike out can get very muddy depending on when you go, so be cautious!

Off season

We stayed here during the off season so we had the hot spring to outselves. It was so beautiful and fun. The snow was packed down to form a trail.

Tucked away, a few hours outside of Boise, this site is worth the ride for the soak that it had to offer. The hot pools are located in the river, so it isn't ideal all year round. The summer months are excellent for a nice warm soak! A private bath tub soak is also available located outside of the river.
