This Forest Service campground is in a gorgeous area of the Clearwater National Forest right off of scenic Highway 12 on the Lochsa River. The Lochsa Lodge is nearby with an excellent restaurant. There was only one reason for the rating of 8 and that was due to personnel. The campground was about to be upgraded to 50 amp, but the camp host could not give us any information as to when this would be started or which part of the campground they would start on first and did not seem to really care if we were inconvenienced. Consequently, on our third night there, the construction crew set up shop in the site right next to ours and so instead of the birds being our alarm, the sound of heavy equipment woke us at 7:30am. Other then that small inconvenience this would definitely be a park we would visit again. We camped at Clearwater National Forest / Powell Junction in a Travel Trailer.

This is an outstanding USFS campground located 12 miles west of Lolo Pass. Site 22 in the electric loop is a very large pull-thru with direct access to the river. Lots of trees and space between sites. Very quiet and peaceful. Only problem is the low voltage of the electric and fluctuations in current. Campground Host said this is to be improved. Several nice trails nearby and a lodge, restaurant and store within walking distance. Some sites can be reserved. We camped at Clearwater National Forest / Powell Junction in a Fifth Wheel.

Have stayed here many times and will again. Campground sits along the Lochsa River which is a great fishing river and known for its class IV rapids. Asphalt pads are generally deep and level and the sites are well separated. Do watch for voltage drops in loop A (loop with power) as they can be significant. We camped at Clearwater National Forest / Powell Junction in a Motorhome.

This CG is on US 12, just west of Lolo Pass and is on the Lewis and Clark Trail. 1/2 the sites have 30 amp hookups and are $15 ,while the others are no hookups and are $7.50. This is a real gem of a F.S. CG, and if we're ever in the area we'll stay here. All sites are level and paved and the bathrooms, some flush and some not were really clean. There are no showers, but just go down to the river (Lochsa river) and soak. REALLY good fishing. Stayed two nights, instead of one as planned. We camped at Clearwater National Forest / Powell Junction in a Travel Trailer.
