Summit Creek Recreation Site

This lush area is filled with many springs and creeks, which create a unique habitat for an abundance of wildlife such as songbirds and moose. Fishermen can try their luck at nearby Summit Reservoir and hikers can explore several trails and logging roads which head into nearby Challis National Forest. This is also a popular area for hunters in the fall. Adventurous visitors can find a relaxing spot at the nearby Barney Hot Springs. There are several dispersed, primitive campsites, two vault toilets and picnic tables. This site has no potable water and limited cell service.
