This property was used by the Shoshone Indian tribe as a summer camp area. Later after the pioneers came they set up a dance floor and had parties here. The dance floor has since overgrown. This property has also been the host to never dams. It has been in our family for many years and we have enjoyed it. Learn more about this land: The campsites are located in a wooded area so lots of shade. 2 sites are creek side along maple creek and the other has a small stream and a pond. All sites have a fire pit available. All sites are carry in carry out. Easily accessible with a four wheel drive. You will need to cross maple creek to reach site 1. The road down to the river bottoms is a bit steep so 4 wheel drive is recommended. This area is ideal for tent camping.

Site 2 - Secluded Maple Creek River bottoms
Secluded and beautiful.
We enjoyed the beauty and seclusion of the site. The sounds of the creek nearby was peaceful and we felt completely relaxed by the end of the weekend.

Site 4 - Secluded Maple Creek River bottoms
This spot was BEAUTIFUL! Playing in the stream after setting up camp was amazing! We played in the water for hours. Listening to the running water as we slept in our tents was incredible as well. The owner was helpful with bringing his tractor up to help bring all of our things down the hill since our car couldn’t make it over the stream. I highly recommend this location!

Beautiful property. We were the only ones there and it was just what our family needed. Nice calm weekend surrounded by the sound of the river and all the amazing birds. Even got to watch a mama turkey with her babies. Nice place to go to get away from the commercialized over crowded campgrounds. Brought back the good old days were you could camp with out being parked and a cement slab with people right next to you. Thank you Ken.

Dog, fire, and water
Absolutely LOVED this spot! We were down by the river, which acted as white noise. Had a fire, cooked some breakfast, all while being away from everything! Because you’re by the river there are some bugs, just bring a can of old school coffee grounds with a candle and you’re set! We have a rooftop tent that we were able to just pull right in and setup. Ken was super helpful and easy going. We had all other party show up a few hours after us and we’re able to help guide him down, since Ken guided us down when we got there. Will visit this site again!

Lush Wonderland
What a gem, tucked away in a quaint rural corner of Idaho, I was blown away by the biodiversity in every nook! This land is full of life and beauty, and the hosts were attentive, respectful, helpful, and friendly. I wish I would’ve caught the herb walk the day before!! I will definitely be back. All of the sites were beautiful, although I think I would choose the same one again though and stay at least 3 nights. There are tons of wild fruit trees, edible and medicinal plants, and the creek was really flowing heavily which made for an incredible sleep. What a magical place…

Perfect site, a bit tricky access
Loved the sight so beautiful and lots of wildlife around. Accessibility was tricky because of steep rocky roads and Sight 1 you cross the stream to get to it. Which the far side of the stream is a bit steep and rocky. Thought site 1 was closer to the bathroom but site 2 is actually closer. Wish the ad had said 4 wheel drive preferred or precarious access when wet. It’s not bad in dry weather but in snow or rain it would have been really hard to get in and out without 4 wheel drive. Luckily it was dry and we didn’t have too much trouble getting in or out just a scare/bump here and there/a running start going back out at the top.
