Summit View Campground is a public 17-acre campground located in the Caribou-Targhee National Forest near Georgetown, Idaho. The cozy campground is open to RV, tent, and trailer camping and offers a prime location for hiking various trails and exploring the lush wilderness with your canine companion by your side.
In addition to 18 single-family sites, the campground offers three group campsites, making Summit View a great destination for your next family gathering or an adventure with a large group of friends. With mature lodgepole pines growing throughout the camp’s grounds, visitors will enjoy plenty of shade and privacy during their stay. There are wild huckleberries and wildflowers growing at the campground, which means you won’t have to go far to enjoy some seasonal berry picking. For those that prefer to explore, there are several trails nearby, which include the Great Western Trail and the three-and-a-half-mile Harrington Peak trail.
All of the sites come with tent pads, picnic tables, grills, and campfire rings. However, there are no water or electricity hookups available at the campground. On the plus side, the sites are spacious and can accommodate RVs up to 60 feet. There is an amphitheater on-site as well as potable water and vault toilets. The scenic campground is the perfect place to relax, unplug, and enjoy disconnecting from the outside world -- especially since there is no cell or wifi signal.
Dogs are welcome at the campground but need to remain leashed and supervised at all times. Please don’t leave your pets unattended for more than an hour and make sure to clean up after them, whether at the campground or out on the trails.
There is a $7 day-use fee, while camping fees start at $56 for group sites and $14 for single-family sites. The group sites can hold between 25 to 50 people but need to be reserved in advance.
