Moose Creek Reservoir is surrounded with gently rolling hills in Northern Idaho. The country is heavily forested with pines and underbrush. Grass covers anything left uncovered. It is beautiful to a greenery starved desert dweller such as myself. The high temperatures in the summer range up to 90 to 92 degrees.

 There are 24 camping sites, most can handle an RV or tent camper. They each have a fire ring and picnic table. Some of the lake sites have a dock for fishing or swimming. In the campground most sites have a lantern pole.

Fee Schedule:
$10.00 daily fee.

Campground Reservations:
Not available. Roy, the camp host, indicated the campground rarely fills completely.

Fishing: Moose Creek Reservoir is stocked with rainbow trout. According to the camp host, there are also bass, crappie and bluegill.

Boating: Electric motors only.

It is called MOOSE Creek, however I wouldn't count on seeing a moose. Whitetail deer, yes, and  we saw a beaver dam on the creek below the lake.

Water: There is water through a couple hand pumps and it is clear without metallic flavor.

Swimming: The lake lends itself well to swimming,  just be considerate of the fishermen.

Phone service: No cell or pay phone at the lake, but Bovill is only a couple miles away.

Restrooms: There are several vault style outhouses around the lake. Most of them were clean and well kept, but a couple of them are rather old.

Handicap Accessible: Somewhat.

Pets: Pets must be kept on a leash.

Garbage Services: Yes.

RV Dumping Site: No.

Nearby Services: Gas, ice and such in Bovill, just a couple miles away.

Location/Driving instructions: Moose Creek Reservoir Campground is located just west of Bovill on Highway 8, watch for the sign. Then follow the dirt road a couple miles.
