Hipcampers say this spot has amazing views.
One of Idaho's most iconic peaks, often compared to the Matterhorn, will transfix you in a picture-perfect view from this campsite. On a clear night, its rosy glow is the only thing you will see just before darkness. As the night darkens further you'll be dazzled by the brightest stars against the darkest of dark skies you will ever experience. Then you'll fall asleep to the peaceful sounds of the Lost River gliding by. In the early morning be on the lookout for the resident moose and her calf (Watch, but don't approach!!) or any of the many deer that ramble by. Then drop a fishing line into the river, just a few steps away, and catch yourself a trout or two for your breakfast. After breakfast, get out your binoculars, cameras, and maps (you did bring them, didn't you?) and choose your day's adventure, whether it be a challenging hike up a mountain trail, a leisurely stroll to a delightful waterfall, a 20-mile trip to world-famous Sun Valley via the stunning Trail Creek Summit, or exploring the largest designated wilderness in the lower 48 states. which is, literally, just on the other side of the fence! The road you enter the property from will also get you 20 miles deep into that wilderness along a broad river valley where you may see elk, moose, wolves, coyotes, foxes, beavers, deer, antelope, mountain goats, big horn sheep, black bears, and much more all thriving in natural abundance. Mountain lions are absent in this area, fortunately, but can be found in narrow, steep-sided canyons in other drainages nearby, if you dare.

Extraordinary views with
This property is out between 4 different category mountains which gives a 360 fascinating and beautiful view. Peaceful, gorgeous green pastures surround your site with horses to keep you entertained. There are 2 spaces, one with the view of the stables and the other is down by the river which is more private. Lestia is the consummate host, personally, a woman after my own heart. For the brave of heart you can come from Ketchum and travel up the steep incline traveling on non asphalt N Fork Big Lost River Road (which we did and didn’t return that way) in our 25ft RV. Beautiful but a little nerve racking in the RV. We left via MacKay. The road to Lestia’s is not paved but flat and wide. Our site was rocked and flat with surrounding grass. We used our outside rug and it was perfect. Not to be forgotten are the 2 canine companions, Fred and the marvelous McNab-Wilma who spends most of her day herding the 2 horses. Hours of entertainment! Our stay there was most memorable.
