Gilmore Idaho is a old silver mining town that was active between the 1880's and abandon in the 1930's after the power plant caught on fire. Gilmore is a legitimate ghost town that contains old buildings, mines, cemetery, etc. Gilmore, Idaho still has numerous old buildings and mines, there is so much to explore!

There are lots of old buildings to explore, but you must not enter and of the old buildings, or any private property.

The campsite contains a small dirt pad, fire pit, and a tent pad.

Gilmore Idaho is roughly 130 mins away from Idaho Falls. The Birch Creek Charcoal Kilns are roughly 20 mins away, and meadow lake and meadow lake campground are roughly 5 miles away (on top of the mountain). The meadow lake campground is only open for 2 months out of the year due to the snowfall (its on top of a mountain).
