The Road To Three Meadows Group Camp
Freeman Creek Road to Dworshak State Park is a two-lane asphalt road. The last two miles are paved, narrow, and steep (10% downgrade) with twisting hairpin turns.

Three Meadows Group camp is four miles past the main entrance of Dworshak State Park along a narrow one-lane, twisting and winding gravel road. There are numerous low hanging branches that could damage the top of tall vehicles. Use is at the operator’s risk. Maximum total vehicle length (truck and trailer) that can safely traverse this road is 48 feet.

*** Friday meals have been changed to meatless so that we at Idaho Family Camp might be in solidarity with Catholics throughout our nation in responding to our US Bishops’ call for Friday penance.

“The U.S. Bishops are encouraging Catholics throughout the country to offer their Friday acts of sacrifice and penance, and particularly to abstain from meat and fast on Fridays, for the intention of the protection of Life, Marriage, and Religious Liberty.” (To read more, see USCCB.)
