Due to a wildfire, there are no amenities at the campground.
A stay at Ninemayer Campground enables guests to enjoy all the beauty and recreation offered along the Middle Fork Boise River (Forest Service road 268).
Weather is usually good from mid-May through late September and is easily accessible by car in good weather, although the road is sometimes rough and the drive can be seemingly long. Checking with the Idaho City Ranger District (208-392-6681) on road conditions before heading out is recommended.
The campground is situated along the river and wildlife watchers may want to look for deer and elk. Waterfowl, eagles and osprey are attracted to the river.
There are several trails in the area. Check the Idaho City Ranger District Motor Vehicle Use Map (MVUM) for trails that are open to hikers, equestrians, mountain bikers and off-road vehicles.
