Hazard Lake

Payette National Forest

Hazard Lake Campground is situated along the shore of Hazard Lake at an elevation of 7,050’, Hazard Lake Campground presents convenient lakeside access and abundant recreational opportunities.

This location is available on a first-come, first-served basis only. Visitors are required to physically arrive at the campground to purchase and claim a site. Once on-site, you may be able to pay for your campsite(s) by scanning a QR code using the Recreation.gov mobile app, and the Scan and Pay feature. 

If this option is available, you will need to first download the free Recreation.gov mobile app https://www.recreation.gov/mobile-app prior to your arrival as some remote areas have limited or no cellular service.

Each of 12 sites includes a fire ring and picnic table. Potable water is typically available July – September.


The Upper Hazard Lake Trail #169 departs directly from Hazard Lake. The surrounding area presents plenty of additional trail access for multiuse enjoyment. Motorized use on the lake is limited by a “no wake” restriction and there is no boat ramp available so lightweight, portable watercraft are recommended.
