Evergreen Campground

Payette National Forest

Evergreen Campground is situated next to the Weiser River just off Highway 95 between the towns of Council and New Meadows, Idaho. Fishing and hiking are popular activities. 

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.

The campground offers several single and double-family sites, most of which are accessible. Vault toilets and drinking water are provided. The road system throughout the campground is gravel, but parking spurs are paved.

Natural Features

Evergeen lives up to its name, as it's settled in a scenic, lush Douglas fir and spruce forest at an approximate elevation of 4,000 feet. Although the campground is right off the highway, the trees shelter campers from much of the traffic noise, creating a peaceful atmosphere.


The Weiser River flows between the campground and the highway, offering excellent rainbow trout fishing.

The Weiser River Trail is popular for hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding, and can be accessed within the site.
