Overview: A stay at Troutdale Campground enables guests to enjoy all the beauty and recreation offered around the Middle Fork Boise River. Weather is usually good from mid-May through late September and is easily accessible by car in good weather, although the road is sometimes rough and the drive can be seemingly long. Checking with the Idaho City Ranger District (208-392-6681) on road conditions before heading out is recommended. Natural Features: The campground is situated along the river and wildlife watchers may want to look for deer and elk. Waterfowl, eagles and osprey are attracted to the river. Recreation: Trail #130 begins nearby, leading to Bald Mountain. Check the Idaho City Ranger District Motor Vehicle Use Map (MVUM) for trails in the area that are open to hikers, equestrians, mountain bikers and off-road vehicles.

In winter, you may need 4 wheel drive to make it through snow plowed berm. Snow will accumulate and can is not removed. Sites are still open otherwise.
