Saw this rather curious plant all around the campground. It reminds me of some kind of tropical plant...
Taken at Little Boulder Campground outside of Deary, Latah County, Idaho.

It looks like Veratrum, possibly Veratrum viride ..

|Possibly some type of lady slipper orchid (Cypripedium) ?|

|I instantly thought of the Ladyslipper also.|
My favorite places to camp are those built by the The US Army Corps of Engineers; Cypripedium fasciculatum is listed as a plant at one of their other projects in Idaho.
But your's looks more 'stripey'; maybe Cypripedium calceolus?
Edit to add a back-up guess: Veratrum viride

|Janet had it right the first time, it's Green False Hellebore (Veratrum viride)|
