Natural Features

The group site is laid out in a large, flat area beneath tall pines within the Nez Perce National Forest in the heart of north central Idaho. The forest is comprised of rugged peaks, deep canyons, dense forests and remote wilderness. Due in large part to dramatic elevational differences, the forest supports a wide variety of vegetation, from cedar groves to desert ecosystems.

Fish Creek Group Camp is located in the Salmon River/Highway 95 Corridor. The landscape here varies from the emerald-colored Salmon River pouring through steep canyon walls to sapphire-hued Moore’s Lake in the remote Gospel-Hump Wilderness.
