Name: Abbot Campground
Abbot Campground is set on flat land along the South Fork of the Boise River east of Featherville, Idaho. The campground is forested but the trees are spaced out with little under brush. This area has many trails which allow motorized travel so it is very popular for trail riding.
Campsites: There are 7 sites for camping, each offers a picnic table and fire ring with attached grill. The road and driveways are gravel. Campsite 1 is at the entrance and offers no privacy. Sites 2 and 3 have long driveways and are set next to the river. Sites 4 and 5 are at the end of that loop and are nearest to the bridge that crosses the river and offers access to trails to the south. 6 is also near the entrance and offers the most sun. Site 7 is at the east end of the campground, has an extra large picnic table and offers the most privacy, except the road runs near it.
