Awesome Campground

This campground is near Highway 21 but far enough off the road for a quiet camping experience.  Lots of room for all kinds of vehicles and choices of camping styles here.  This is actually one of my favorite place to snow shoe in the winter.

Better than Yellowstone In My Oppinion

I stayed here to go horseback riding (very reasonable prices) up to get a good view of the sawtooth mountains. The campground views from the water were spectacular. sure there’s no colorful acid pits, or buffalo, but there is great hiking, and wonderful wildlife around. I saw some black tail deer, big horned sheep, elk and even a mountain lion. I saw no predators in Yellowstone so it made the trip better .

The comet NEOWISE made an appearance and was mind blowing! If star gazing is something you enjoy, this area is amazing. If you plan to see something special, make sure you PLAN AHEAD!

I spent a lot of time barefoot as the area around the fire pit was concrete instead of the usual gravel I’m used to.

About thirty minutes away there’s a wonderful historic town called Clayton. I recommend taking a day to explore the ghost towns and try to visit one of the hot spring areas.

Back country camps are the best


Whoop Em Up!

Quiet with restroom and clean water. Lots of firewood laying around. No cell service, except Mores Peak and Idaho City… No service in Lowman (only 1 mercantile with 2 pumps), but an absolutely gorgeous drive! Only downside is the flies late morning to evening. But overall an awesome 2 days of peace and quiet and no cell. Didn't hike, but plenty of trails due to horses and heard running water in the distance.

Beautiful, quiet, and clean

I decided to stay here for one night. Spots were open but were reserved for a few days later. Other folks came in and are doing the same. A gentleman with a golf cart will come up to your site and collect the fee and give you a parking pass. I have a car and a tent, 3 people, and it was $20/night. There is running water and bathrooms available. The sites have fire pit, picnic table and area to place tent.
We walk easily to the lake to fish in the morning or later in the evening.

Very rugged

This site was right along a river that was very beautiful but the campground was on higher ground so most people walked down to the entrance where you could get to the river or some people stood on the bridge to fish. Not all spots have trees, so be careful if you have pets. They did have three campsites for people with horses to camp. Not our cup of tea but if you are low maintenance or bring it all with you then this may be your pace. No other amenities. Right up the road from Stanley.


One of the most beautiful places in this country! Camped here early spring this year and it was amazing. Campground is typical for the area. Dispersed sites all around if campground is full, which it usually is. Don't expect to get a spot without reservations.


Great place to get away from Everything… Secluded. Quiet, peaceful. Coming to Deadwood is a family fav. Accessible from Cascade side in any vehicle. Garden Valley side recommend 4x4 only.

2020 campground not what it was in 2019

I stayed here in September of 2019 and loved it! The camp host was great and the campground was clean.  The water spigot was by the trailhead and and older pump style but effective.  I went July 2020 and there was no host, campground was tidy but certainly not the clean it was before, and the water spigot was broke.  No water.

Great camping experience!

This campground is just outside sun valley, Idaho. When we stayed it was very quiet and many different choices of campsites, you can here the road from your site but it was not disruptive. The bathroom is far from most sites and no cell service but consequently was not the issue, the views were breathtaking. The creek was accessible. Firewood is easily available if you’re willing to collect it. The roads are a little rough but animals were no concern. We camped in our tent and had a wonderful time, and it was free!
