Conrad Crossing Campground is really two campgrounds; an upper and a lower with the road dividing them. The campground is situated along the St Joe River in the Bitterroot Mountains of Idaho. The river is running through a narrow canyon with steep mountains on either side at this point. There is a mature forest here which provides shade and some privacy in the upper campground.
Campsites: There are 9 RV / tent campsites, 3 in the lower loop and 6 in the upper. Each campsite has a picnic table and a fire ring. The roads and driveways are gravel. The lower sites have access to the river.
Host on Site: No.
Water: There is a hand pump equipped well for camp water. I don't drink from these wells but they are tested monthly for bacteria.
Garbage Services: No garbage service available, please pack it out with you.
Electricity Available: No.
Restroom: There is a vault style outhouse in each upper and lower campgrounds. They are fairly clean and were well stocked.
Handicap Accessible: The outhouses are handicap accessible.
Firewood: No firewood is for sale here. You will need to provide your own.
Pets: Pets are allowed but must be kept on a leash.
Picnic Area: There is no picnic area. However, if you find a campsite open feel free to have a picnic.
Recreation: Camping, fishing, rafting, kayaking, tubing and hiking are the main forms of recreation available here. If you wanted to travel a bit, The Trail of the Hiawatha is not too far for a fun day of biking. Check out this company offering package deals. It is one of several.
Fishing: Fishing is available in the St Joe River and it is a beautiful river. Check the regulations here.
Boating: Just below Conrad Campground the river goes into a very narrow canyon with a series of rapids which would be great to run with raft or kayak. I am not into river running so do your homework before attempting this.
Swimming: I didn't see any great swimming hole but one may be able to cool off in the river.
Wildlife: Deer, elk, black bear and grizzly live in these mountains.
