Rattlesnake Campground is one of 5 campgrounds that lie along the Middle Fork of the Payette River, north of Garden Valley. Units have parking and can accommodate small to medium RV's up to a length of 35 feet. All units have tables, grills and fire pits. The campground has 2 handicap accessible camping units and a 20’ x 44’ Pavilion.

The area was covered by old growth Douglas-fir and ponderosa pine, but a large windstorm in 1988 took out most of the large old growth trees. The campground was reconstructed during the 2001 and 2002 seasons.

This campground has 11 units. Two vault toilets are located within the campground, one of which is handicap accessible.

This campground is on the fee system. Fee envelopes and collection boxes are located at the entrance to the campground.
