Creekside Campground and Event Center is a small, privately owned and operated campground that is conveniently located just 45 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 and is on the
Ponderosa Scenic Byway with year round "Mores" Creek running through the entire campground area. The bridge entrance with electronic gates gives privacy to our guests and additional security.
This location offers 10 camping sites that will accommodate most RV vehicles and has an onsite privy and coin operated hot showers if you are tent camping. Each campsite has its own picnic table and a pedestal barbecue. Firewood bundles and charcoal brickettes are available for purchase if you forgot to bring your own, and a central fire pit allows campers to enjoy the camaraderie 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 it its natural habitat. Trout and salmon can be fished from the creek during allowed seasons. We also have a playground with two swings, tether ball and a sandbox to keep the kids happy and occupied while you relax.
For groups wanting to reserve the "event area" in addition to the (10) site campground, there is an additional daily fee of $150. The event area offers some very convenient amenities as follows: Our "Ice House" has electricity with two refrigerator/freezers for storing your food/drinks, several tables with shelving to store and prepare your food. We also have two "Camp Chief" griddles with propane tanks available to rent if you forgot to bring your own. Included is the "Event Pavilion" that has six picnic tables, electricity and lighting. Adjacent to the Pavilion are two 25 foot log serving tables with a designated area for your mobile kitchens, barbecues or catered services. Our location can accommodate up to 250 people with our overflow parking area for daytime events such as weddings, family reunions, corporate company camp-outs or other group activities.
Nearby Idaho City has many activities during the summer months and offers several restaurants, two small grocery stores, many small shops, 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.
