Mike Harris Campground is set in rolling, heavily forested hills just off Highway 33 south of Victor, Idaho. We missed the entrance and had to go back looking for it, but the Google Map will help you find it. We arrived on a Monday and the campground was a third to half full. I recommend you reserve ahead of time. The main activity here is hiking the Mikesell Canyon Trail.
