Summary: A easily visited 40' wide 15' ledge falls on Camp Creek located in Camp Creek State Park. The larger of two easily visited falls in the park.

Campbell Falls is located in Camp Creek State Park. This is a very easy to visit falls. It is about 15' high, and 40' wide, depending on water levels. The falls is located right alongside Camp Creek Road. There is a gate on this road less than a mile from the falls. The gate is usually only open for people camping at the horse camp. There is a parking area just before the gate. It is an easy walk to the falls.

It had been raining for several days when I visited Campbell Falls. It usually has considerably lass water. This is a falls that probably looks a little more scenic with less water.

To reach the falls from I-70, take exit 20, and head south on US 19. Almost immediately, turn north onto Camp Creek Road. This will be the first road you see after exiting onto US 19. Continue on this road for 1.8 miles to reach the park. Continue another .5 miles to the parking area.

Nearby Falls

Mash Fork Falls, a 7' plunge on Mash Fork is also in the park. It is less than a mile away. Brush Creek Falls is a few miles away. Head back on Camp Creek Road to US 19. Continue straight across the highway 19. The road changes names a few times as it parallels I-77. When you reach Brush Creek Falls Road, turn right and you soon be at the falls. If you continue east and then north, you can find Indian Branch Falls, and Pipestem Falls. Twin Falls Resort State Park and its two waterfalls Black Fork Fall and Marsh Fork Falls are 45 miles away.
