Great Park and Campsite

Super helpful staff gave us a sweet campsite. Lots of wildlife around and we were camped close to the trailhead. Great hiking and views of the river and canyon. Definitely going back.

Clean, convenient, near water

We stayed in Birch Loop for 2 nights. This was our maiden voyage so we opted for something close to a city as we were still setting up our camper coming out of winter.

Our spot was plenty long enough, but not as wide as I would have liked. There are two big trees on passenger side that prevent…

Three Rivers Resort in Idaho

So, I’m not sure why “resort” is in the title, this certainly not a resort in the traditional sense. But, this is a great place to stop if headed up the Lochsa River and has something for everyone.

The “resort” has riverfront cabins, double occupancy motel rooms, A frame cabins, RV spots with…

Things change

We used to pull horse trailers in there all the time - 20 years ago

We won’t be pulling anything in there again. Gained some plumbing experience due to large “pot holes” that can swallow trailer tires whole.

Forest service has forgotten about the road and let it fall into dismal shape. Would be…

Great Views

You can car camp here at the end of the road before you enter the Gospel Hump Wilderness. If you cross the Wind River Bridge, there are some great hiking opportunities up into the surrounding mountains. There used to be an actual campground here, but much of it has grown up. There are still…

An incredibly beautiful area. It is rugged and feels so wild. Plan to take your time driving up 17 Mile road (takes about an hour to get here from Riggins!). The views are spectacular and easy to find. There are some areas that can be pretty dry and hot, so make sure to plan ahead and bring lots of…

Very family friendly place and the trail is wheelchair accessible. Great trek along the river. Watch for rattlesnakes in the area!

What heaven on earth truly is

Arrived late on a Saturday night originally intending to camp at the 7 devils campground but there were no available sites so decided to go back to windy saddle. We were the only campers at windy saddle and were able to get a perfect site at the head of the trail over looking hell’s canyon and…

Rustic campground close to Heavens Gate lookout and trails in the Hells Gate Wilderness

After 45 minutes drive on dirt road we reached this rustic campground and had it all to our selves the first night. There are pit toilets, no trash, no water. We loved the loneliness and the spacious sites in a little fir wood close to a 0.2 trail to the wonderful clear little lake next by and only…

Overall, a nice state park campground, but a little too close to the city. The bathrooms were decent, with free showers. We arrived around 6pm and the weather was weird, light rain then hail, but it stopped after about an hour. We started to settle in and then a group of maybe 30 teenage boys…

Great hide away

Awesome camp ground right on the river. We saw lots of different wild life. The only down side is a out of state fishing license is kind of expensive.

Hells Gate is a great campground, but know what you are getting into. The park is VERY parklike with some trees, but overall there is little privacy on the loops. We stayed for just overnight, but enjoyed our time. You are right on the Snake River (minimal view) and close to Lewiston, ID (maybe…

Plenty to do

This is a large campground for the area and there is plenty to do around the state park. Fishing, hiking, swimming, boating, disc golf, volleyball mountain biking. The camp spots are very close to each other and there is not much privacy. It is also very hot in the summer. It would be a great…
