Clear Creek   by Oliver Hansen ŠOliver Hansen (2013)

Description: This campground, road and stream are located on the divide of the Great Basin and the Snake River drainage in the Sawtooth National Forest.  The stream, cottonwood riparian and pinyon juniper habitats provide a highly variable bird population during migration and good birding in the summer.

Directions:  Go west from Snowville on UT 42 to Strevell, (an old town site) just across the Idaho border.  Go west on the gravel road 3.3 miles to the Clear Creek Campground sign.  The campground is south and west of the sign 6.2 miles.

Specialty Birds: (summer) Hairy Woodpecker, Western Screech-Owl, Pinyon Jay, Warbling Vireo, Gray Flycatcher, Hermit Thrush, Western Tanager, Black-headed Grosbeak, and Chipping sparrow.
