Our Bear Lake Bascamp is perfect for boondocking or pitch a tent and camp in our 5 acres meadow or find a small shady spot in the 5 acres of  quakies and pine trees!  Off grid camping! OHV trails (ride from camp), bring your mountain bikes or even just go for a hike. Located at the edge of the Caribou-Targhe National Forest, Montpelier Ranger District, Idaho. The sunrises are amazing and in the evening you can listen to the coyotes off in the distance. It is open in the winter for snowshoeing or snowmobiling in with wood ready for the fire pit!  Recommend, that when you first arrive, build a small fire in the fire pit and the smoke will get rid of any of the bugs around.  We get up there about 1 time a month and mow/trim the path, parking and work on the trails in the pines.   Turn left at the smile face....When you see it, you'll know what I mean ;)  Please be respectful of others have property in the area as well.  Don't climb over anyone's fences.

Was really nice area, trees provided plenty of shade. Nice areas to pitch tents and park a trailer. Very well kept camp.

Chris was super nice but this isnt a very good "camping" spot. This could be ok if you had a trailer and were a very primitive type camper but we just had a tent and 2 kids and dogs with us. The whole site is overgrown, run down and very buggy (yes, its camping, I know). We ended up leaving and camping on Bear Lake. This site was about 40 minutes away from Bear lake.

Actual peace and quiet

Had a Wonderful time! The site was just as described. It was a short drive to Bear Lake (30 minutes) and had a nice town nearby (15 minutes) so we were able to get some odds and ends we forgot. It was nice beaing able to leave the crowded lake and sleep in the middle of the pine and aspen without anyone bothering us. Very peaceful site, totally quiet and could see every star at night. The host was great about directions and the outhouse was a great addition. Will definitely be back!
