Overview

Peace Valley Campground sits just 27 miles north of Garden Valley, Idaho, at an approximate elevation of 4,400 feet. The beautiful Peace Valley offers excellent hiking, fishing and hunting opportunities.

Natural Features:

The surrounding area consists of high, forested mountains and steep valleys. The campground lies close to an experimental forest and a fire lookout.

A variety of wildlife makes its home in and around Peace Valley, including deer, elk, bald eagles and red-tailed hawks.

Recreation:

Peace Valley offers several trails for hiking, mountain biking, horseback and off-road vehicle riding. Peace Creek Trail and Bitter Creek Trail both begin nearby. The Rattlesnake Trail and 465 ATV Trail are in the vicinity of the campground.

Peace Creek and nearby Silver Creek offer excellent fishing most of the year. Anglers cast for whitefish and rainbow trout.

In-season big game hunting for deer, elk and bear is a popular activity in the surrounding mountains.
