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.
The campsites are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. There are 14 sites available with a maximun length of 30 feet. There is no garbage service so pack it in and carry it out. Restrooms are available. Drinking water is available from 2 hand pumps in the campground.
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.
Travel north on Highway 6/Whitepine Drive, 7.7 miles from Harvard, Idaho.
