Overview

Overview

Davis Canyon Campground is situated on St. Charles Creek a scenic canyon in the forests of southeast Idaho.

Natural Features:

A mixed-growth conifer and aspen forest covers the campground. St. Charles Creek flows gently past the site.

Recreation:

Nearby, the North Fork Trail and its associated trails access the Highline Trail #316. The Highline Trail is part of the National Trail System and is the area's premier trail. It stretches 55 miles along the backbone of the Wasatch Mountains and is open to hikers, mountain bikers, horseback riders and motorcyclists, attracting trail users from around the world.

The Idaho Department of Fish and Game manages the river fisheries, providing excellent fishing most of the year, including in St. Charles Creek. In-season big game hunting is also a popular activity.

Facilities:

This campground contains one accessible group site that can accommodate up to 40 people. The group site is made up of three smaller individual sites. Picnic tables and fire rings are provided, as are vault toilets. Roads and parking spurs are gravel.

Nearby Attractions:

Minnetonka Cave, one of only two developed caves in the Forest Service, is a few miles from the campground. Guided cave tours are scheduled every 30 minutes daily from early June until Labor Day.

The Bear Lake National Wildlife Refuge is just north of Bear Lake, offering excellent bird watching.

Bear Lake's Raspberry Days Festival occurs the first weekend in August every year, with a parade, fireworks, craft booths and a rodeo.
