Nice campground on Dworshak Reservoir

Dent Acres has a lot of campsites maintained by the US Army Corps of Engineers. There is lake access, a nice pavilion for large picnics. There is day use boat trailer parking and an upper lot of those camping overnight. A nice fish cleaning station, bathrooms, and abundant wildlife viewing. There is a nice group campsite just down the road that is part of this campground.

Little North Fork offers great fishing

Not many places to camp, but great fishing for cutthroats and rainbows. Takes a while to drive in, but well worth it once you are there!

Great place for a group

A lot of opportunity for camping; single sites, group, even trailer or RV sites, but no hookups. Nice place for a family that may have different likes. Fishing and hiking and wildlife viewing. Hunting access in the fall.

I love this place

This campsite offers access to great fishing, hiking, camping, hunting, and wildlife viewing.

My favorite place to camp and fish in Idaho

I love camping along the North Fork Clearwater River! Great fishing and many sites to choose from along the river. I have camped a several sites here and will continue to come back time and time again. Great wildlife viewing, access for fishing and hunting. I love driving up to the top of the Isabella Creek road for viewing Mountain Goats! Bring a really good pair of binoculars or a spotting scope though, they are on the other side of the canyon, but well worth the wait. Best viewing times are at sunrise and sunset. Remember that Bull Trout are listed on the Endangered Species List as threatened, so they are catch and release ONLY! Cutthroats are great. Cool to see the Kokanee spawn in the fall.

Small but pretty

I only camped here one night. The tent sites are well cared for. Pit toilets are clean. It is quiet and pretty, but kind of a small area.

A little bit of everything!

Freeman Creek at Dworshak State park has great opportunity for all levels of camping. Tent sites, RV/Trailer sites, or a few small primitive cabins (no bathrooms or kitchens in the cabins). There is also access to the reservoir for boating, fishing or to mini-camp sites all along the reservoir. Kokanee fishing is great from March to about late July. The spawn begins in August, so the fish move up the reservoir as the season progresses. Smallmouth bass fishing is great! The Idaho state Smallmouth record was caught in this lake. Day use parking is available for a small fee. For Idaho residents with the State Parks pass reduces the fee. A lot of wildlife viewing too! If you are lucky you may see a black bear feeding on blackberries, deer are numerous, elk frequent the lake, and one of my favorites is to watch Osprey dive in the lake for fish.

I have been at this park in every month of the calendar, but only camped from April thru October.

Great location

Moose Creek Reservoir is a great place for a little peace and quiet. Nice bass fishing for a smaller reservoir. Campsites are well cared for. Beautiful location and a lot of scenery.

Riverside Campsites

Great campground right next to the Lochsa River. Some of the campsites are literally spitting distance to the water. It is close to the road, but traffic is light at night, so there's not much noise. Bathrooms were clean, roads are well maintained, and sites had a picnic table and fire pit. Really enjoyed our stay here as a basecamp to the hot springs in the area.

Public land site off Hwy 75

Gold creek camping site has one fire ring and is surrounded by a burm of land and forest, no easy access to creek.

Small camp grounds

Has good trout fishing. Newer boat launch for small type boats only.

Fantastic and family friendly.

We book a group camp site every year and have a camping reunion!

The kids love it and the grown up worry less at such a family appropriate park

Cool old cabin

This is an old guard station and is staffed part of the year with volunteers. Camping is available nearby as well
