Grandjean Campground - This campground is managed by Sawtooth National Forest - Stanley Ranger Station - 208-774-3000.
It is a first come, first serve basis only. NO RESERVATIONS.
Because of the proximity of the campground to the Boise National Forest Lowman District, many forest vistors do not know that the Sawtooth National Forest manages the campground. Please refer all calls to the Stanley Ranger Station.
The Idaho Centennial Trail heads south along the Payette River, ultimately reaching a lush alpine paradise filled with lakes. Once in the lake area, you can complete the loop back to Grandjean. Fishing in the South Fork of the Payette. Sawtooth Lodge and swimming pool is one mile away. Natural hot springs 1.5 miles away. Horse trips out of the Sawtooth Lodge. Ten sites for horse campers. Campground is located in an old growth ponderosa pine forest.
This may be one of my very favorite family campsites. The sites are large and well spaced enough that even on a full weekend it didn’t feel overly crowded. A river runs down one side of the campground and there’s lots of beautiful hiking. The camp hosts are wonderful. Wood was cheap. It’s a bumpy ride in on a one lane dirt road (for about 20 minutes) and got especially precarious when we had to pass another trailer with our own rig and literally 2 inches of clearance with no options to back or pull off. But as they say- all’s well that ends well!
Beautiful campground as a whole, PLENTY of great lots (I was really surprised on how many really good spots there were), there’s a river at one end of the campground and trails on the other end. Plenty of space for our kids to literally run around not annoy other campers. You don’t have to travel far from the campground to find things to do or stay there and hike trails or play at the river. Natural hot springs are just a few minutes away. Great camp hosts when we were there. Nothing bad to say at all!
I will stay here a million times over it’s so beautiful I could live there! I just would want plumbing personally
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.
