Overview

North Fork Campground is located in scenic St. Charles Canyon in southern Idaho, near Bear Lake. Visitors enjoy hiking, biking, horseback riding and motorcycling on local trails, and fishing in St. Charles Creek.

Natural Features:

A dense, mixed growth conifer forest covers the campground. St. Charles Creek flows gently through the site.

Recreation:

North Fork Trail, which has a trailhead within the campground, is open to motorcycles, horses, hikers and mountain bikers and connects with the Highline Trail, a 55-mile path along the backbone of the surrounding Wasatch Mountains.

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.

The campground offers an accessible group site that can accommodate a maximum of 50 guests. The group site is made up of five smaller sites.

Picnic tables and campfire rings are provided, as are vault toilets. Roads and parking spurs are gravel.

The cave temperature is 40 degrees and the path through it includes 444 steps. Tickets must be purchased at the cave entrance.

Bear Lake's North Beach is 12 miles from the campground, offering swimming and fishing opportunities on one of the Inter-mountain West's largest natural lakes.
