Grandjean Campground is composed of 31 campsites near the border of the Sawtooth Wilderness and the Boise National Forest. All sites are first-come, first-serve. It is situated in an old growth ponderosa pine forest. The Idaho Centennial Trail heads south along the Payette River, ultimately reaching a lush alpine paradise filled with alpine lakes. Once in the lake area, you can complete the loop back to Grandjean. Sawtooth Lodge is one mile away. Natural hot springs are 1.5 mile away. Horse trips are operated out of the Sawtooth Lodge and there are 10 sites for horse campers. This is a terrific area for hiking and exploring the beautiful Sawtooth Wilderness.
My family of five camped for a few nights and loved it all. There is hiking close by either good for kids up to challenging for adults. It’s right by a river, several good shaded sites and even large ones for horses. It’s close to natural hot springs too.
I love this campground, I love the area. You can go on a hike, check out the Payette River and also dip in the Sacajawea Hot springs close by.
