Kennally Creek Forest Camp

Name: Kennally Creek Forest Camp

Kennally Creek Forest Camp is located southeast of McCall, Idaho, along Kennally Creek. There are 11 campsites with an additional 2 sites in the equine area. The area is hilly with a mature forest and is wetter than most which makes for great wildlife watching. The road ends here but there is a trail leading up the creek which connects to more trails. Riding horses and hiking are the major attractions here.

Campsites: There are 11 single campsites and the forest service indicates that 9 are RV sites. A couple of the sites are very short so they would be better for tent camping. They are equipped with a picnic table, fire pit with attached grate and BBQ stand. There are 2 more "sites" in the equine. The road to and through the campground is gravel while the driveways are dirt.

Host on Site: There was no host at the time of my visit.

Water: There is a hand pump equipped well for drinking water which is tested monthly during camping season.

Garbage Services: No, pack it out with you.

Electricity Available: No.

Restroom: There is a newer vault style outhouse which was clean and well stocked.

Handicap Accessible: The outhouse is handicap accessible but that is all.

Firewood: As far as I could tell there was no firewood available so you should plan on providing your own.

Pets: Your pet is welcome but should be kept on a leash.

Picnic Area: One could use the equine tables for a picnic if they were free but there is no official picnic area.

Recreation: Recreational activities include camping, fishing, horseback riding, hiking, wildlife watching and photography. Per the Forest Service website; "Trails branch out east (East Fork Kennally Creek Trail #099, Needles Summit Trail #101) and north (North Fork Kennally Creek #102) from the campground, affording fun loop trips for hikers, horseback riders, or those with mountain or trail bikes."

Fishing: Fishing is available in Kennally Creek and from mountain lakes you will need to hike to. The fishing regulations can be found through a link here.

Boating: None.

Swimming: There may be a hole in the creek you could swim in but nothing developed.

Wildlife: There are deer, elk, black bear and wolves in this area. One will also see many smaller woodland animals and birds.

Additional Camping Opportunities: We have reviews for these nearby campgrounds; Upper Payette Lake Campground, Grouse Campground, Hazard Lake Campground and Lake Fork Campground.

Phone service: No data but our ATT phones had some cell reception.
