Overview

Overview

Baumgartner Campground is situated alongside the South Fork Boise River, 11 miles from Featherville, Idaho.

Aside from excellent fishing, hiking and off-road vehicle riding opportunities, the campground features Baumgartner Hot Springs, where visitors can enjoy soaking in the pool while admiring the scenic natural setting.

Natural Features:

The campground is nestled beneath towering ponderosa pines at an elevation of 5,200 feet. The gentle South Fork Boise River runs along the site, offering beautiful scenery and recreation.

A variety of wildlife is commonly seen in and around the campground, including deer and moose.

Recreation:

The campground's main draw is Baumgartner Hot Springs. The 101-degree water is piped into a large concrete soaking pool. The pool is open during daylight hours and is drained, cleaned and refilled daily.

The South Fork Boise River provides great fishing for wild and stocked rainbow trout. Younger campers love splashing in the cool mountain waters. An accessible path and fishing pier are located next to the river.

The John Baumgartner Gravesite is a short walk from the hot springs. A 1/4-mile interpretive nature trail begins at the hot springs and meanders up the hill through the forest.

Kelly Creek/Iron Mountain, Virginia Gulch, Willow Creek, Van Gulch and Big Water Trails all begin in the area. Ponderosa Trail ATV Learner's Loop is located in the Kelly Creek Recreation Area.

Facilities:

The campground offers single and double-family sites, as well as two group sites, all with picnic tables, fire rings and grills. Vault toilets and drinking water are provided. Roads and parking spurs are paved.

Nearby Attractions:

Numerous hiking, biking, horseback and off-road vehicle riding trails crisscross the surrounding area. Kelly Creek Flats Recreation Area is adjacent, with horse corrals on-site.
