Apgar Campground is located between US Hwy 12 and the Lochsa River a few miles northeast of Lowell, Idaho. This the main route between Lewiston, Idaho, and the Lolo Pass to Montana and beyond. Many campers stop at Apgar Campground for a night as they pass through. The area is heavily forested and there are many cedar trees in Apgar campground. I saw honeysuckle blooming. Having never seen it, I thought is was some new bush at first, humm.. I can see our family enjoying this campground. We would set-up a net in the meadow for badminton or volleyball and roast hot dogs and marshmallows at the fire pit. With the river for fishing, we would have a good time here!
