Paris Springs Campground is a public campground located in the Paris Canyon, five miles from the city of Paris, Idaho. The cozy, forested campground sits by Paris Creek, which runs from the Paris Springs all the way down to Bear Lake. The sound of the creek and the smell of fragrant pines and mature aspens growing throughout the campground make it the perfect place for a relaxing weekend away in the wilderness. Since the campground is dog-friendly, your canine companion can join in on the outdoor adventure.
The campground consists of 12 spacious and well-shaded sites, including nine single-family campsites and three group sites. Both can accommodate tent and RV camping, although there are no electrical hookups available. RVs should not exceed 20 feet in length, as the dirt roads that lead to the campground are quite narrow. The campsites come with fire rings and picnic tables. There are lots of bushes and lush greenery in between the sites that grant patrons plenty of privacy from other campers. The campground is equipped with clean drinking water and vault toilets that are well-stocked and maintained. Single campsites start at $14 per night and $25 per night for double sites. Group sites start at $56. There is also an additional $5 for extra vehicles, and the day use fee is $7.
There is a 300-yard trail nearby that leads to the Paris Spring, and Bear Lake is just a few miles from the campground, making Paris Springs a good location for fishing and boating enthusiasts as well as hikers. There are several nearby trails that are also bike- and equestrian-friendly, this includes the popular 55-mile Highline Trail, which is part of the National Trail system. Other must-visits include the Paris Ice Cave and Bear Lake State Park.
Since the campground sits by a creek, surrounded by tall grass, make sure to pack bug repellant and also check your dog for ticks.
