Little Boulder Creek Campground

Name: Little Boulder Creek Campground

Little Boulder Creek Campground is located along the Potlatch River, approximately 40 miles east of Moscow. Paved roads and driveways along with partial grooming make this campground appear quite inviting. This campground is thickly forested and greener than green! Little Boulder is such a nice facility I hope it is well used. We came on a very rainy Father's Day so it is hard to say if it is usually full. I wish Southern Idaho had more campgrounds like this one.

Campsites: 16 RV / tent campsites. Each campsite has a picnic table, fire ring with grill, and most sites offer substantial privacy. There is double parking spaces at most of the sites with an extra parking lot for overflow parking.

Host on Site: Jerry and Earline are the hosts on site. They have been at Little Boulder Creek for 16 years.

Water: Yes, there is water, but it tasted quite metallic. I would bring your own water for drinking.

Additional Camping Opportunities: There are areas for off-road camping in the area if you are self-contained.

Camp host was very rude. I will never go to this camp ground again. One complaint from another occupant in the campground was handled very poorly by the camp host. The complaint was more of a personal opinion from occupant of another site. The other occupant and the camp host didn't like apologies and were threating work lively hood and federal prosecution because music was being played during the middle of the day. This was not music with any profanity and was only able to be heard in campsite which music was being played. Both the other occupant and the camp host were very rude and threating, and were not wanting to settle things in a cival mannor. All in all my family and I will never go there again. Use your on personnel opinion on it but I am one who does not like to be accused of things I was not doing and being told to leave and that the police were being called to make sure of it.

There is a quarry across the road where locals like to shoot their assault rifles and other assorted noise makers. Unless you like to camp with the sounds of a battlefield as ambiance, I would avoid this place. The campground host said it's pretty much 7 days a week so bring your earplugs and nerves of steel if you do stay here. 
J Husaril:

I have camped there many times and enjoyed every time. It was quiet and serene. Enjoyed reading about the logging camp that was there during the early logging tears.
