Free camping not far from Craters of the Moon

We stayed at Silver Creek West when we were unable to get a campsite at Craters of the Moon.  Silver Creek is a disperse camping area as no established sites are in the area, but their are several rock fire rings in the area.  The site does have a vault toiler.  Camping is free.  Plenty of flat…

Wonderful Campsite on Beautiful Lake

I was attending a local wilderness first aid course and was able to have the privilege of staying at Smoky Bear.  I was lucky that is was early in the season and was able to drive in and find a great site for my RV.

The sites were clean and well dispersed...there are a number of pit toilets…

Solid Little Fish Camp

This is not a fancy campground but a solid place to set up a fish camp next to Silver Creek.  The entire area was clean and the placement of the campers that were already there were fairly dispersed.  There is a single pit toilet available but really no other amenities.

I was able to connect…

Great Alternative to Redfish Lake Campgrounds

Redfish lake was all reserved, so we ended up camping across the highway here.  Great campground with the Salmon River running along right next to the site.  Little trails leading down to river.  Sites were spacious and had picnic tables and fire pits (no fires allowed when we visited).

Better than Redfish Lake

I would say that Alturas lake gives redfish a run for its money. The lake is approximately 30 minutes from Stanley. My wife and I stayed for 2 days and was not crowded. There are still boats on the lake but significantly less than Redfish. Its perfect for the paddle boarder, kayaker, or fisherman.…

Best lake in Idaho

Come prepared for cold nights even in the summer. Water will be just as cold unless its August but it's refreshing and extremely clear. Clean campground with fire ring. Camp hosts were very nice.

Nice spot.

Close to hwy20. Convenient but you can hear the traffic. Camp host Denny was great guy. Ask him about his impala.

Nice site

We were able to find a site at the last minute, after 2 surrounding sites were full. Camp host was friendly and prompt to check us in. Nice big site. Dogs allowed on leash. Bathrooms available, but didn’t use. Some highway noise, but not bad. Nice place to stay with a creek running nearby.

Great campground

No hookups but water spigots are scattered about the cg. Very private sites widely spaced out. Level, gravel back in spots with metal picnic tables on concrete pad. Some highway noise but not a problem and quiet at night. Very nice.

Great Sites

Sunny Gulch is close to the Sawtooths for great hiking, next to the river if you want to cool off or fish and there were plenty of options. The tent sites are groomed pretty well, and they had the cleanest pit toilet I think I’ve ever seen.

Nice, widely dispersed sites just a few miles NW of Stanley

We are full-timers and have a 36 ft Class A with a Cherokee Trailhawk tow and had scouted the area before arriving with the RV. The roads in to this area, NF-563/Stanley Creek Rd and NF-633/Nip and Tuck Road are in pretty decent shape for all vehicles coming in from the West off of Hwy 21, but be…
