Amanita

Boise National Forest

Note: Amanita Campground will be closed for the 2022 season due to pervasive root rot that creates hazard trees. The Forest Service will be conducting selective thinning to remove hazard trees.

Amanita Campground is located next to scenic Lake Cascade in west-central Idaho. It is near the town of Donnelly, at an elevation of 4,850 feet. Boating, fishing, swimming and hiking are popular activities in this scenic region.

This small campground contains single-family campsites, with picnic tables, campfire rings and grills. Some sites have lake views and shoreline access.

Vault toilets, drinking water and trash collection are provided, but there is no electricity at the campground. Roads and parking spurs within the facility are gravel. A campground host can be located at Rainbow Point Campground.
