Best camping spot near Boise

Grimes Creek

Readers' Picks

We're always suspicious of this category, fearing you, dear readers, will mislead us, pointing us away from your real favorite spots. Hell, the reason we live here is close camping (and hotsprings and mountain bike trails and stuff) and there are many places from which to choose. But Grimes Creek, chock-full of campable public land, is a fine choice. It's close, right up Highway 21. It's always cool. And hey, those pioneer bastards may have left you a gold nugget or two. But you still might not want to drink the water.
