Kelly Forks Campground

Area Status: Closed

Tucked away in a heavily wooded, streamside location at the confluence of Kelly Creek and the North Fork of the Clearwater River in Northwest Idaho, is Kelly Forks Campground.  With 14 campground sites, a group area, campground host and a hiking trail going directly up to Flat Mountain from the site, horseback riding trails in the vicinity, swimming and an abundant watchable wildlife, Kelly Forks has a little of everything. Also, for the all the anglers out there, Kelly Forks boasts a Blue Ribbon cutthroat trout stream (catch and release).
