Fish Creek Pavilion is a day-use picnic area adjacent to Fish Creek Campground. It's situated in a meadow surrounded by conifers and near a variety of recreational activities.

Natural Features:

In the heart of north central Idaho, rugged peaks, deep canyons, dense forests and remote wilderness comprise the Nez Perce National Forest. Due in large part to dramatic elevational differences, the forest supports a wide variety of vegetation, from cedar groves to desert ecosystems.

Fish Creek Pavilion is located in the Salmon River/Highway 95 Corridor. The landscape here varies from the emerald Salmon River pouring through steep canyon walls to sapphire Moore¿s Lake in the remote Gospel-Hump Wilderness.


The Fish Creek Cross Country Trail begins within the adjacent campground. This 7-mile multi-use loop is open to hikers, mountain bikers, horseback riders and off-road vehicle enthusiasts. Hikers will find additional foot trails as well.

Visitors who wish to camp can stay at Fish Creek Campground, which has first-come, first-served sites. Groups can reserve the Fish Creek Group Site about 2 miles down the road.


The accessible pavilion can accommodate up to 75 people. Eight picnic tables, two barbecue grills, electricity and lights are provided. Drinking water is available from June 15 to September 15. A short paved path leads to additional picnic tables and campfire circle with benches.

Nearby Attractions:

Grangeville is the nearest town. It offers camping supplies and a historical museum.
