Weitas Creek Campground

Area Status: Open
This area is Open

Weitas Campground is a very popular, no fee campground that’s located about 35 miles northeast of Pierce, just off FS Road #250.  Much of the campground’s appeal comes from its location along the shady banks of Weitas Creek, just south of the North Fork Clearwater River (you cross a bridge to reach the campground.)  There are only six campsites, so Weitas CG tends to fill quickly during the height of the summer recreation season.  Trail #20 runs south, and then east, out of the campground, providing miles of first-class bank fishing opportunities.  The trail eventually junctions with FS Road #500, the Lolo Motorway.
