About: Pine Flats Campground is located a few miles west of Lowman, Idaho along the Banks-Lowman Highway at an elevation of 3,700 feet. Towering Ponderosa pines cover the area, offering partial shade in most sites; summer wildflowers dot the landscape. The South Fork Payette River is adjacent to the site but down a small bluff, and offers trout fishing, rafting and kayaking. A 1/4-mile nature path begins in the campground and leads to a natural hot springs soaking pool on the river.

This campground contains several single and double-family sites, all of which are ADA-accessible, each with picnic tables and fire rings with grills. Additional single-family sites may be available on a first come, first served basis. Vault toilets, potable water, and garbage service are provided. A campground host is on-site. Roads and parking spurs are paved, and some site pads are paved as well.

Numerous mountain streams and natural hot springs pools can be found along the Banks-Lowman Highway, also known as the Wildlife Canyon Scenic Byway. The area offers scenic views, wildlife watching, historical information kiosks, and several trail opportunities. Whitewater rafting and kayaking are popular activities on the South Fork and Main Payette Rivers; several companies in the area offer guided half and full-day trips.
