“Fabulous!”

This campground is beautiful, the area is gorgeous and the privacy lovely. We spent one night here in June as we traversed this section of Idaho. Now that we know how amazing it is, you can be sure that we will be returning for a week-long trip in the future. This is dry camping at a reasonable rate. $2 extra a night if you have an extra vehicle. We pulled in on the fly and had many sights to choose from. Our initial plan was to boondocks on the Lochsa river, however the site we were scouting was a bit crowded for our taste...so this was a fabulous Plan B. We even scored a shaded and private pull-through site! Absolutely gorgeous camping in June.

“Set near the beautiful Lochsa River you'll find a bucolic respite”

Wilderness Gateway is located on Idaho's Hwy 12 on the west side of beautiful Lolo Pass about Mile 122. With four loops to choose from any rig can find a site. Loops A and B accomodate any size rig; Loop C, with a flowing Boulder Creek, works best for pop ups, truck campers, 18' trailers; Loop D is reserved for campers with horses.

With not a camper to be found, pull through site #3 in Loop B, was our own private Idaho set in a beautiful meadow with great vistas.

There is no cell service available, so get your work out of the way and be prepared to experience a serene campground. Each site has a table and fire ring. Restrooms with flush toilets were extremely clean. There are no hookups but both dump and fresh water are available. Have your Senior Pass? Nightly rate is only $7.
