Lower Penstemon Campground is located along the scenic Rock Creek Road, in southern Idaho, at an elevation of 6,600 feet. Visitors come to the area to enjoy its abundant trails and natural beauty.
The campground contains single-family campsites with picnic tables and campfire rings. Vault toilets and drinking water are provided. Roads and parking spurs within the campground are gravel. Because the campground is situated along the main road, some noise from passing cars is to be expected.
Due to a new well installation for the Rock Creek water system, there will be no water available until August 31th, 2019. Please plan accordingly and bring all the water you will need for your stay. For more information, please contact the Minidoka Ranger District at 208-678-0430.
The campground is situated in a mixed conifer and aspen forest, just off Rock Creek Road. Most sites have partial shade. Summer wildflowers dot the landscape and wildlife can be seen frequently in the surrounding area.
Hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding and off-road vehicle trails crisscross the surrounding area. Third Fork, Pike Mountain, Rim View and Porcupine Spring trails all begin nearby. Rock Creek runs along the campground, offering good trout fishing.
