Little Boulder Creek Campground is located along the Potlatch River, approximately 40 miles east of Moscow. Paved roads and driveways along with partial grooming make this campground appear quite inviting. This campground is thickly forested and greener than green! Little Boulder is such a nice facility I hope it is well used. We came on a very rainy Father's Day so it is hard to say if it is usually full. I wish Southern Idaho had more campgrounds like this one.
