Beautiful Country

The Sawtooth recreation area has it all.  Camping, fishing, hiking, biking, skiing.  Ketchum is the nearest town which is an activity all in itself.  There are also hot springs in the area.  We love it here in the winter.  Miles of cross country skiing and snowshoeing.  There are numerous campgrounds within this recreation area.

First to Review
Beautiful Mountain Area

This is a smaller campground tucked back against the mountains.  Good shade trees.  Close to hiking, fishing and mountain biking.  Campsites have a picnic table, fire ring with grill.

Right on the river

This is a very popular campsite all year round.  It is right on the river and hot springs.  Close to other hiking and other forest activities.  Can be crowded.

Limited services but good

Near the lake. No water, has vault toilets. Roads can be slick.

Base camp for fire suppression

We stopped by here but did not go in due to it being used the the wild fire suppression teams and we didn’t want to disturb them. Respect to all the men and women out there risking their lives to save the forests.

Nice primitive sites

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.

Crowded remote area

Warm Lake is BEAUTIFUL! And the locals know it, talk about a crowd. I think every spot was taken and at max capacity. We walked some of the lakeside trail and there were people all along it fishing.

The lake filled up quickly with kayakers, swimmers and other boats. Even with all that it was still possible to find a somewhat quiet spot along the lakeside. The campground has paved sites that are level and it’s all well maintained. The night sky would be very awesome, unfortunately there is the constant haze from the wild fires which is horrible. Not far up the road they are fighting a good size fire that has put out so much smoke that it overcast the sky counties away.

Worth the drive

Warm Lake Is BEAUTIFUL! Peaceful, dark and REMOTE.

Quite a drive to this beautiful lake but apparently it is well liked by locals because it was crowded! People fishing everywhere, people all around the lodge, trail and beach.

The water is crystal clear and fishing is popular. There is a trail that goes completely around the lake but we turned back when a snake crossed our path.

There are several options to include a group camping area, a shoreline primitive area, rental cabins and a Rec vehicle area. The lodge offers pretty much everything you could need, but considering how busy they are I would try to bring what I needed.

Awesome area

Warm Lake Picnic Point

One of several options for the recreation area. This is a primitive area with the lodge within easy walking distance. Room for a small group with tents and hammocks. Mostly level and direct access tot he lake.

The forest fires were further into the forest but the smoke haze was ever present.

Remote and beautiful

There is a tent area, rental cabins and a camper area. I had no signal, bring a map.
