Camping question....

I am looking for a camping spot within 100 miles of Boise.. (preferably east of Boise) We will all have travel trailers so we need a place we can get up to 28' campers in. I would love to be by a river or lake...

If anyone has any ideas, please let me know. Thanks!!

You will have multiple choices for camping east on Boise. If you are going in the summer their are numerous US Forest Service Campgrounds along the Boise or Payette Rivers. You can reach these campgrounds by traveling either on Highway 55 north of Boise towards McCall or Highway 21 east of Boise thorugh Idaho City. If you want a really great camping area the number one choice would be the Sawtooth National Recreation Area east of Boise. Its probably over 100 miles but the scenery would be worth it. There are numerous US Forest Service Campgrounds at mutiple mountain lakes many of which can handle RVs. The Sawtooth National Recreation Area can be reached by either driving east ftom Boise to Ketchum / Sun Valley and then north on Highway75 or by going eat from Boise on Highway 21 through Idaho City / Lowman and into Stanley. Redfish Lake is the numnber one spot in this area. You should have a great time in any of these areas.

I second that. Redfish and Stanley Lakes are the premier camping areas near Sun Valley in my book. You won't be disappointed.
