Park Creek Campground is located 4 miles from Lowman, Idaho, off the beaten path at the confluence of Park and Clear Creeks. Visitors enjoy fishing, hunting and exploring local trails.
Park Creek and Clear Creek both offer good trout fishing. Various hiking, biking, horseback and off-road vehicle riding trails are in the vicinity.
The campground contains two group sites available by advanced reservations, each can accommodate up to 100 people per group site. The Rainbow Group Site are sites 1-12, and the Trout Group Site are sites 13-24. Picnic tables, campfire rings and grills are provided, as are vault toilets, drinking water and trash collection. Roads and parking spurs are dirt.
When not reserved as a group site, the sites are available on a first-come, first-served basis. If both Rainbow and Trout Group Sites are reserved there will be no first-come, first-served sites available. Prior to arrival, please check the campground status on the reservation board on the 582 road located 300 feet north of the 21 junction to see if there are any pending reservations.
Towering Ponderosa pine and Douglas fir trees forest the campground, offering plentiful shade. Summer wildflowers dot the landscape. A variety of wildlife lives in the area, including black bears, deer and elk.
Beautiful Bear Valley is up the road from Park Creek, offering scenic views, wildlife watching and numerous trail opportunities for hiking, biking, horseback and off-road vehicle riding.
Several natural hot springs pools can be found along the Banks-Lowman Highway, also known as the Wildlife Canyon Scenic Byway, and Highway 21, the Ponderosa Pine Scenic Byway. Both byways also offer pretty scenery, wildlife viewing, historical information kiosks and trail opportunities.
Whitewater rafting and kayaking are popular activities on the South Fork and Main Payette Rivers; several companies in the area offer guided half and full-day trips.

The site was pretty big and you do have to make reservations. There is lake about a 5 minute walk away full of fish. The rangers at the station were really friendly and it is about 9 miles away from the site. The site was secluded and was well worth it.
This place has some good areas for hiking and mountain biking. This place does have a lot of black bears so make sure you put tassels and bells on your bike before venturing off into the woods.
