Elk Creek Campground
Less than a mile from the quiet town of Elk River in the mountains of north central Idaho, the Elk Creek Campground is found in a picturesque setting of mature pine forests and next to the tinkling waters of Elk Creek. Only minutes from the largest waterfall in Idaho and the largest and oldest cedar tree east of the cascade range, and a favorite for berry pickers everywhere, this 24 site campground with host and a group shelter is an ideal place for your next family getaway.
