Hi, anyone know of any campsites or hike-in campsites near Burke or Gem Idaho? Or if people can camp in the ghost town's themselves? I am not familiar with the are, but my dad and I are wanting to do a camping trip up Canyon Creek somewhere.

I have been to burke alot teaching my wife to fly fish on the creek nearthe hecla mine building.I think that most of the pepole there dont own the homes they live in.may be squaters.if you go past burke to the power sub station and cross the creek by the new bridge and hike all the way to montana if you want.dont eat the fish out of the creek because of the lead content.go up higher past the mines and they are ok.if you have any other questions write to danspeedway@yahoo.com P/s write me and ill go show you what I know about the place we go alot.Dan
