Warm Lake Shoreline Campground is a nice walk in area right on the shore of the lake. You can walk down to fish, swim or kayak/paddle board. This is one of the better areas I think in this campground. Less walk through traffic then other area but access to everything. Good size sites, your neighbors are within shouting distance but it’s still quiet. Your in the trees and off to one side of the lodge so vehicle traffic is not very noticeable either. Worth the drive for the scenery and peacefulness.
Nice, fully paved campground with easy access to the lake, swimming beach and rustic lodge. The best part is that you can drive all the way to the campground (from Boise) without leaving pavement. Parking for the beach area (about a mile from the campground) is a bit of a nightmare so carpooling may be necessary.
