Baumgartner Campground is located in the beautiful mountains of central Idaho approximately 110 miles from Boise, near the town of Featherville. Baumgartner is surrounded by high mountain peaks with the South Fork Boise River forming the northern boundary of the campground and a 1/2 mile interpretive nature trail that winds its way along the southern edge of the campground. We have one position open, but would consider a two person team as well.
