    • Smiley Creek Lodge

    Join us for this year's annual Idaho Outdoor Association Campout at Smiley Creek. The main attraction will be a group hike on the Horton Peak Trail, which features great views of Sawtooth Valley and the Sawtooth Mountains.

    Our core group will be at the Smiley Creek Lodge. This is where you can find us to connect with the group. Meet us on the grounds of the Smiley Creek Lodge on Friday evening for refreshments. If you want to do the hike, or part of the hike, meet us in front of the lodge on Saturday morning at 10:30am. Participants will need to provide their own food and lodging. 

    Those looking for a place to camp can find nearby dispersed camping sites along Pole Creek Road, further up Smiley Creek, near the Sawtooth City site and along the Salmon River Headwaters. 

    We have also reserved a full hookup RV site at the lodge for any one in our group who would like to have it. Please contact for information about the price and availability.

    If you have any other questions, email
