“Sawtooth National Forest - Our Favorite Boondocking Spot!”

We stayed 9/10/2019. Our GPS coordinates were 43.801667, -114.421167

Awesome free boondocking spot right near the river with good cell coverage. Dump ($5) and potable water really close on FR-146, back towards the Visitor Center.

FR-146 can be tough especially after it rains. About 1/4 mile after the visitor center it becomes a washboard road with large potholes and small buried rocks sticking up. All is manageable if you go slow.

This is a popular spot so it might be challenging to get a site. We unhooked at the North Fork Visitor Center at the Sawtooth National Recreation Area Headquarters to scope it out.
