Lick Creek Area, McCall & Krassel Ranger Districts

  

The Lick Creek area is just east of McCall and is accessed from Lick Creek Road.  This is a beautiful area that many think of as the Alps of Idaho.  There are many recreation opportunities in this area such as camping, a guard station cabin rental and many trailheads that lead to alpine lakes.  A drive to the top of Lick Creek Summit from McCall only takes about 40 minutes.  This is a highly recommended area!
