Bull Trout

Boise National Forest

Bull Trout Campground is located on the shores of beautiful Bull Trout Lake at an elevation of 6,900 feet. The lake offers great fishing and canoeing opportunities. Many trails for hiking, biking, horseback and off-road vehicle riding are in the area. Only equestrian users may reserve equestrian sites. If an equestrian site is not reserved, it may be occupied by other user groups on a first-come, first-served basis.

This campground contains group, equestrian and single and double campsites, many of which are accessible. The group sites can accommodate up to 50 people each. Equestrian sites each contain a corral and large parking spur. Some sites are on the waterfront and have direct lake access, others have lake views.

Vault toilets, drinking water and trash collection are provided. Roads and parking spurs within the campground are dirt. A campground host is on-site.
