Recreation

Several miles of hiking, biking and off-road vehicle trails crisscross the area.

The Sturgill Peak Trail climbs to a 7,289-foot summit and an active fire lookout built in 1934. Hikers are rewarded with views of the surrounding Hitt Range and the Wallowa Mountains to the west.

Facilities

The campground offers several single-family campsites and one large group picnic site than can accommodate up to 100 guests. Picnic tables and fire rings are provided, as are accessible vault toilets and drinking water.

Natural Features

The campground is situated beneath tall ponderosa pine and fir trees at an elevation of 4,750 feet. Summer temperatures are hot during the day, but the surrounding trees provide ample shade.

The Payette National Forest encompasses some of Idaho's most beautiful and diverse country. Located in west-central Idaho north of Boise, the 2.3 million-acre forest extends 100 miles west to east from Hells Canyon to the Middle Fork Salmon River, and 70 miles north to south from the Salmon River to the Weiser River.
