About Davis Canyon Campground

Davis Canyon Campground is situated on St. Charles Creek a scenic canyon in the forests of southeast Idaho.


Nearby, the North Fork Trail and its associated trails access the Highline Trail #316. The Highline Trail is part of the National Trail System and is the area's premier trail. It stretches 55 miles along the backbone of the Wasatch Mountains and is open to hikers, mountain bikers, horseback riders and motorcyclists, attracting trail users from around the world.

The Idaho Department of Fish and Game manages the river fisheries, providing excellent fishing most of the year, including in St. Charles Creek. In-season big game hunting is also a popular activity.


This campground contains one accessible group site that can accommodate up to 40 people. The group site is made up of three smaller individual sites. Picnic tables and fire rings are provided, as are vault toilets. Roads and parking spurs are gravel.

A mixed-growth conifer and aspen forest covers the campground. St. Charles Creek flows gently past the site.

Another Great Site by the River!

Aother great site along the St charles Creek in st Charles Canyon.  It has the same amenities fire pit, picnic tables and a vault toilet.  The road down to the campgroundand the river is kind of steepand mat only be suitable for high clearance 4wd vehicles after a rain.  There is a large gravel area lower down and some campsites right after the signage that have decent shade.  This site provides great access for fishing!
