Camp Site 10

Giant Whitepine Campground Clearwater National Forest is located on the White Pine Scenic Byway, Idaho 6, north of Harvard, ID. It is a lovely little forest service campground named after an enormous, 600 year old white pine that has been cut down due to disease (but it still resides in the campground!).

The campground has 14 developed sites, all resting in a lush forested setting. There are many hiking trails near the campground, including the National Recreation Trail 224A, the East Fork Meadows Creek Trail.

Camp Site 10

The campground is open from mid May to early September.

We stayed in site 10 and felt like we were tucked away in the forest with no one else around. We had a lovely campfire and evening listening to the birds. We were wakened in the morning with small green pinecones dropping on our rig. There was no wind so we think it was squirrels causing the pine cone rain.

Getting There

Travel north on Highway 6/Whitepine Drive, 7.7 miles from Harvard, Idaho.

    Even in the middle of summer it looks like you found a quiet and serene spot!

    We did. It was the first time we had been cool for a long time. Even cool enough for a fire. http://rvtravels.net/wp-content/uploads/2015/07/giant-whitepine-campground-1-of-1-4.jpg

Love to hear from you!
