Southeast Idaho (Diamond Creek) camping, fishing, ATV riding

Southeast Idaho Diamond Creek is tucked right up against the border of Wyoming.  In the Peale Mountains, a sub-range known as the Webster range is a nice place for camping, hiking, fishing, and ATV riding.  Diamond Creek and the Webster Range are not very remarkable considering southeast Idaho is an area that has world-class outdoor recreation options like Yellowstone, The Tetons, the Wyoming range, and the turquoise blue waters of Bear Lake.


Idaho's Webster Range - Pretty and Unremarkable

We found this place by accident.  Our plan was to stay at the Blackfoot Reservoir paddle our raft and swim in the hot summer sun.  The campground wasn't very good and had me quickly re-evaluating our situation.  I explained our situation to the lady working at the nearby store.  She told us of a much better place to camp than the windswept campground at Blackfoot Reservoir.  She said, "take this road and go straight but stay left. There's a turn-off to the right for SPOUT CREEK but that's not it.  You want to keep going to the 2nd turn-off to diamond creek."  The directions turned out to be perfect and we found ourselves here at the base of the pretty and unremarkable Webster Range Idaho with little info and a lot of spirit.

Camping Near Diamond Creek Idaho


Southeast Idaho Diamond Creek camping.  Much like the camping for Ibapah Peak, there are several dispersed campsites along the valley.  All the dispersed campsites along the road are pretty nice.  We chose a spot in Bear Canyon near Draney Peak.


There are several campgrounds.  You won't need reservations.  There are people around but not busy like in other more popular areas.

ATV riding Diamond Creek area

The trail system crosses the borders of Idaho into Wyoming and back for a 200-mile loop.  The route winds by rugged snow-capped mountains, green meadows, creeks, rivers, lakes, and a beautiful mixed aspen and pine tree forest.  The trail is mostly gravel and hard pack.  It is perfect for beginners or those on duel sport motorcycles.
