Overview

Park Creek Campground is located 4 miles from Lowman, Idaho, off the beaten path at the confluence of Park and Clear Creeks. Visitors enjoy fishing, hunting and exploring local trails.

Natural Features:

Towering Ponderosa pine and Douglas fir trees forest the campground, offering plentiful shade. Summer wildflowers dot the landscape. A variety of wildlife lives in the area, including black bears, deer and elk.

Recreation:

Park Creek and Clear Creek both offer good trout fishing. Various hiking, biking, horseback and off-road vehicle riding trails are in the vicinity.

Facilities:

The campground contains two reservable group sites, and both can accommodate up to 100 people each. The individual sites can also be reserved. Picnic tables, campfire rings and grills are provided, as are vault toilets, drinking water and trash collection. Roads and parking spurs are dirt.

Nearby Attractions:

Beautiful Bear Valley is up the road from Park Creek, offering scenic views, wildlife watching and numerous trail opportunities for hiking, biking, horseback and off-road vehicle riding.

Several natural hot springs pools can be found along the Banks-Lowman Highway, also known as the Wildlife Canyon Scenic Byway, and Highway 21, the Ponderosa Pine Scenic Byway. Both byways also offer pretty scenery, wildlife viewing, historical information kiosks and trail opportunities.

Whitewater rafting and kayaking are popular activities on the South Fork and Main Payette Rivers; several companies in the area offer guided half and full-day trips.
