Overview

Dog Creek Campground is located on the banks of Dog Creek, at the foot of the Trinity Mountain Range. It is four miles from the town of Pine, in south-central Idaho. Visitors enjoy fishing, swimming and exploring local trails.

Natural Features:

The campground is situated in a scenic ponderosa pine forest, at an elevation of 4,600 feet. Summer wildflowers are plentiful and deer and hummingbirds frequent the area.

Recreation:

The South Fork Boise River is less than a quarter-mile away from the campground, offering rafting, swimming and fishing for rainbow trout. Paradise Hot Springs is nearby.

Green Creek Trail 270, a 4.5-mile trail for hiking, horseback riding, biking and off-road vehicles, begins a mile from the site. Cross Cut Trail 172 begins close by and is open to hiking, biking, horseback riding and off-road vehicles.

This quiet campground sits off the main road. It offers two small group campsites that can accommodate up to 15 people each. Eleven single-family campsites are available as well. Vault toilets and drinking water are provided. Roads and parking spurs within the campground are gravel.
