General Information

Description - *Note: All information presented is non-seasonal, as per the wishes of the State of Idaho.

Dworshak State Park is located among trees and open meadows on the western shore of Dworshak Reservoir. The area is known for its moderate summer nights and mild winter temperatures.

Camping, boating, fishing, swimming, hiking and water-skiing are just some of the many activities that await park visitors. A boat ramp and handling dock provide easy launching most of the year. A fish-cleaning station is nearby to help with the day’s catch

Attractions - The campsites at Freeman Creek Campground each feature a picnic table and fire grill. Of the 105 sites, 46 have water and electrical hookups. Twenty-five sites are provided at lakeside for tent camping. Sites are also available for use by the disabled. Four camping cabins are also available by reservation.

There are three group-camping loops, designed to accommodate those camping groups that desire a more private setting. These loops may be reserved by contacting the park office.

A modern central restroom and shower house are provided for campers, and vault toilets and water fountains are conveniently located throughout the area. An RV dump station is located near the entrance to the park.

Recreation - A picnic area with tables, grills and a modern restroom is nestled in the trees next to the swimming beach and playground.

A large sun shelter is available and may be reserved for group use by contacting the park office.

Climate - The climate in Idaho varies with the elevation. The bottom of Hell's Canyon, Boise and other locations at low elevations receive hot summer weather. Temperatures at these elevations often reach 90 degrees or more during the summer months. At the same time the mountains will get mild temperatures with cool nights. Winters are just as extreme with the mountains experiencing extreme conditions and temperatures. An average of 500 inches of snow falls on the Idaho highlands. Temperatures are known to dip below zero degrees F on many winter nights. The lower elevations enjoy a more mild winter season with less precipitation than the mountains. The sun is a constant throughout the year. Be sure to wear sunscreen and layered clothing in Idaho's unpredictable weather.

Location - Twenty-four miles northwest of Orofino on County Road
