Not for your average camper. Very remote, no services and zero cellular service.

This is an older, primitive, 4-site, old-fashioned Forest Service campground 9 miles up dirt roads from the Lima exit. I'd not recommend it for large RV's, but it's a great place to get away. We stayed in a small Aliner trailer. We picked the uppermost site, which required a lot of leveling, but had great views of the Lima Peaks and Mt. Garfield. None of the sites are very level. There was only one other camper at the time, and I doubt it's ever full. Site #3 was so overgrown it took some time for us to find it, so I doubt it's ever used. Also, there are level, dispersed campsites along the last mile there that could be used, although without pit toilets. You must bring your own water. The campground is free, and the only services are old, wooden pit toilets, which were in good repair and had paper. There is good hiking nearby on trail #40. The trail head is at the end of the Middle Sheep Creek road, which forks off a mile or so on the road back towards Lima. This is high, arid, mostly open country with great views and few visitors. The nearest cell service is about 8 miles back towards Lima. There is a good air ambulance service out of Idaho, which we had to use when my wife, an experienced hiker, fell and injured her back 2 miles up the trail. They flew her to the excellent Dillon hospital & she's now fully recovered. In spite of that, she still wants to go back to East Creek!
