Campgrounds and camping areas at or near Burgdorf, Idaho. This guide consolidates the various campground and camping areas in the Burgdorf, Idaho area. There are a couple more single camping sites on the Riggins Road to the north and one next to the Secesh River on the Warren Wagon Road in route to the Chinook Campground. These sites have fire rings, but are not included in this guide. This whole area is very scenic with clear creeks, a river, meadows, lakes, and mountains. Wildlife abounds in the area. It is not unusual to see wildlife from your campsite. Camping, walking, hiking, mountain biking, dirt biking, ATVing, hunting, fishing, and wild life viewing are popular activities. Enjoying the Burgdorf Hot Springs is also high on activity lists. The elevations in the area range from about 6000' to about 8500'. It gets cold, usually freezes, at night in the summer and the area is snowbound in the winter. Potable water is available at the Burgdorf Campground. The "Camp Host" there can advise of camp ground availability, fires, and other useful info.
Burgdorf is also in the Payette National Forest, near McCall, Idaho, not the Gospel Hump Wilderness.
This area is usually not accessible until the middle of June due to the annual snowpack.
Thanks mighkel . I updated POIs #4 and #5 to reflect the bureaucratic infighting taking place in the area.
The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service is showing its disdain for campers safety.
I added a short Trail Camera video of a wolf to this guide.
Most of the campgrounds in the area have "Closed" signs. There are a lot of beetle killed trees in the campgrounds and the USFS is concerned some might fall. Camping is still allowed "AT Your Own Risk".
The only one completely closed is the one in POI #2. Potable water is still available here.
