Little Wilson Creek Campground is very small with just two sites. It appeared to be undeveloped, no tables and just stone fire rings. There was no sign at the entrance other than a sign indicating you need to pack out your garbage. If you reach Little Wilson Creek Trail Head you have passed the entrance. It will be 50 to 100 yards back on the lake side of the road. The area is mostly forested with some sagebrush covered hillsides.

Boating: There are no boating facilities at Little Wilson Creek Campground but I saw a boat beached at campsite 2. Elk Creek Boat Launch is only a short distance to the west.
Swimming: There is no swimming area but people often swim in the lake.
Wildlife: Deer, elk and bear live in the mountains around here. A hungry bear could pay you a visit if you aren't careful with your food and garbage.

Nearby Services: When I was gathering the info for this review in June of 2011, Fall Creek Resort offered many services, even meals and beverages. I noticed it was for sale so I am not sure it will still be there. So, buy your supplies in Mountain Home before you come.
RV Dumping Site: The closest RV dumping station is in Mountain Home according to rvdump.com. "Public dump station on E 12th St S, no charge. Take I-84 Bus to E 12th St, turn north. The dump is down a block on your left. Potable water is also available."
