Lola Creek Campground is located NW of Stanley, Idaho, about 22 miles on the south bank of Marsh Creek and is surrounded by the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness Area. The land is slightly sloped to Marsh Creek. Lola Creek is a small creek and could be a great place for your small children to play in its shallow water on a hot summer day.
Campsites: Lola Creek Campground has 21 tent / RV campsites. Each have a picnic table and fire ring with a grill. The road and driveways are gravel. The setting is forested with some low brush, very grassy and natural feeling.
Host on Site: No host on site.
Water: Potable water is available from a hand-pump equipped well. I did not taste it.
Garbage Services: Yes, there is garbage service here. I recommend using care with your garbage disposal and food storage to avoid a night time visit by the neighborhood bears.
Restroom: There was a new, vault style outhouse. It was very clean when we passed through.
Handicap Accessible: Yes.
Firewood: You will need to provide your own firewood.
Pets: Pets on a leash only.
Picnic Area: There is no picnic area.
Recreation: Many people who are going hiking down Marsh Creek, camp at Lola Creek Campground rather than Marsh Creek Campground. Other recreation includes camping, fishing, and all the usual mountain activities.
Fishing: Lola Creek Campground is on the south bank of Marsh Creek for fishing. However, per regulations Marsh Creek is catch & release only.
Boating: I don't believe there is any boating done on Marsh Creek.
Swimming: Yes, you could wade in Marsh Creek or little Lola Creek. Swimming, not really.
Wildlife: This is pretty wild country so one could see most any of the the larger animals like deer, elk, bear, moose, wolves, and occasionally a mountain lion.
Additional Camping Opportunities: Check out our reviews of these nearby campgrounds; Beaver Creek, Marsh Creek, Banner Creek, Bull Trout, Fir Creek and Thatcher Creek campgrounds. There are also primitive campsites scattered about. I noticed there were campers toward Beaver Creek Campground just off the road.
Fee Schedule: The daily fee is $10.00 per site.
Campground Reservations: Lola Creek Campground is a first come first serve facility. At 1:00pm on a Sunday in July, more than half of the sites were open.
Phone service: No pay phone in the campground nor did we get service with our ATT cell phones. Stanley, Idaho, is the nearest location for a phone.
Nearby Services: Stanley, Idaho, is your nearest source for camping supplies such as gas, propane, food, ice and pop.
RV Dumping Site: There is an RV dumping station near Stanley and another at the Red Fish Lake Central Services area.
Location/Driving instructions: From Stanley, Idaho, you will travel NW on Hwy 21 18.0 miles to make a right turn onto Lola Creek Campground Road. Follow Lola Creek Campground Rd 1 mile to the campground which will be on your right.
