For those who love camping in Idaho!
West Fork Campground is on the West Fork of Morgan Creek. We found it
on the map and thought we would find a nice campground. Don't be
fooled. After a slow rough drive up W. Fork Road on a very narrow
road, you find
one unmarked site. It is surrounded by a pole fence and was occupied
seemingly permanently. There is a picnic table and fire ring with an
attached grill. The western slopes are open and dry while everything
else is forested and brushy. It looks like great hunting country. Don't
take me wrong, I bet a few people in this country have great memories
of camping here. However, I wouldn't want to drive in here only
the one site taken.
