Hidden Grove in the Shadow of the Sawtooths

You must be a member or a Patreon subscriber to see location.


Explore this primitive campsite nestled in a shady grove of conifers, just off a well-traveled and groomed forest road in Idaho's picturesque Sawtooth Mountains. Tucked away amidst dense trees, this hidden gem offers excellent privacy and seclusion, making it a peaceful retreat. Accessible by any vehicle, it's important to note that access may be limited in winter.

Enhancing the natural ambiance, the campsite is situated next to a small, babbling stream, featuring a makeshift wooden footbridge and a stone fire ring. While cell service is unavailable, the dense tree coverage limits satellite connectivity. With ample space for one or two vehicles, the site also provides a vault toilet conveniently located just a short walk away.

Immerse yourself in excellent hiking opportunities amidst tall mountains, wildlife, and breathtaking scenery, with various outdoor adventures waiting nearby. Whether you're seeking a brief escape or planning an extended backcountry stay, this lovely campsite in the Sawtooth Mountains is the perfect base for a few nights of relaxation and outdoor exploration.

Always tread lightly, leave no trace, respect the wishes of landowners, and leave campsites cleaner than you found them. Be the very best steward of our public spaces that you can possibly be so that they remain public.
