Mann Creek Campground is a public campground located by the Mann Creek Reservoir in the Payette National Forest, just 15 miles from the town of Weser, Idaho. The 13-site campground offers a prime destination for fishing and boating, with lakeside and mountain views.
The pet-friendly campground is operated by the Payette National Forest and can be easily accessed through the gravel roads that lead towards it. The campground sits by the 283-acre Mann Creek Reservoir which is located at the base of the Hitt Mountains. Out of the 13 available sites, two are ADA accessible, one is pull-through, and six can be reserved in advance. The remaining sites operate on a first-come-first-served basis.
Each site comes with a picnic table or a picnic shelter and a fire ring. Although the campground accommodates both tent and RV camping, please note that there are no water, sewer or electricity hookups. On the plus side, the campground is equipped with vault toilets and drinking water, which means that patrons won’t have to forgo any other comforts while camping in the wilderness. Please make sure to call beforehand to check whether water is available during late summer and fall.
Although there are tall, mature trees growing around the area, most of the sites are sunny with partial or limited shade, which is also why the area is covered with more sand than grass. All of the sites are spacious, and some can accommodate big rigs of up to 55 feet in length. Parking spurs are gravel, but the campground loop and the two ADA accessible sites are paved. Sites start at $10 per night for single sites and $15 for double sites. There are hosts available on-site that can help visitors navigate to the nearby attractions. Since there is no dump station, the camp’s patrons are expected to clean up and pack their trash before leaving the campground.
Swimming, fishing, and boating are allowed at the Mann Creek Reservoir, which is why the location is so pawpular during the summer. Dogs are welcome at the campground but need to remain leashed during their stay. Other nearby areas will have signs indicating where canines can be off-leash.
