Creekside Campground is small, privately owned campsite that is conveniently located just 40 minutes drive northeast from Boise and 6 miles south of Historic Idaho City. Right off Highway 21, this level location is easy to get in and out of. Located on the Ponderosa Scenic Byway, the site has year round "Mores" Creek running through the entire campground area. The bridge entrance with electronic gates gives seclusion to our guests and additional security.

This location offers 10 camping sites that will accommodate most RV vehicles and has an onsite privy if you are tent camping. Each campsite has its own picnic table and a pedestal barbeque. Firewood bundles and charcoal bricketts are available for purchase if you forgot to bring your own, and a central fire pit allows campers to enjoy the camadarie of other campers if your looking for a night time bonfire. There are no electrical or water hookups in order to keep the setting as pristine as possible and in its natural habitat. Trout and salmon can be fished from the creek during allowed seasons.

For groups reserving the entire campground for three (3) consecutive days for all (10) camping sites, we offer the use of some of our additional amenities at no additional charge.  Our "Chipmunk" house has electricity with a refrigerator/freezer, several tables and shelves to store and prepare your food for your group. We also have two "Camp Chief" griddles with propane tanks.  If reserving for three (3) consecutive days or more, we also offer a 10% discount.

If your group wants the use of additional amenities without having to rent for three (3) consecutive days, there will be an additional fee for these amenities. Please email your requests to get the breakdown of costs.

Nearby Idaho City has many activities during the summer months and offers several restaurants, a small grocery store, post office and the Boise Basin Museum. We recommend the "Visitors Center" as your first stop to get a brochure of

"A Walking Tour Guide of Historic Idaho City". The tour has a great outline with specific narratives of all the historic buildings that still exist today from the thriving mining town of the 1860's.

We hope you will enjoy your stay with us while experiencing all that our area has to offer.
