Evergreen Campground is situated next to the Weiser River just off Highway 95 between the towns of Council and New Meadows, Idaho. Fishing and hiking are popular activities.

Natural Features:

Evergeen lives up to its name, as it's settled in a scenic, lush Douglas fir and spruce forest at an approximate elevation of 4,000 feet. Although the campground is right off the highway, the trees shelter campers from much of the traffic noise, creating a peaceful atmosphere.


The Weiser River flows between the campground and the highway, offering excellent rainbow trout fishing.

The Weiser River Trail is popular for hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding, and can be accessed within the site.


The campground offers several single and double-family sites, most of which are accessible. Vault toilets and drinking water are provided. The road system throughout the campground is gravel, but parking spurs are paved.
