“Beautiful, peaceful, and quiet!”

Reviewed Jul 31, 2018

Overall Rating

We stayed 3 nights dry camping in a beautiful site along Forest Rd 146. We stayed exactly 2.8 miles from turnoff of Hwy 75 and/or 2.0 miles from the NRA dump station the site was on the right. There were only two downsides to this site and that was the road conditions (very bumpy!) not that it can't be done because we did but I would n... more

“Great dispersed sites on 146 just off SR-75!”

Reviewed Sep 04, 2017

Overall Rating

The GPS coordinates for this site are way up the road but the sites actually start very close to 75. The previous review summed it up well- easy access just off of SR75 with a dump station, water and visitor center right at the start of 146. The road turns to gravel at the dump station but its a good road as far as we went. Beautifu... more

“The best site we found in our week in southern Idaho”

Reviewed Jul 16, 2017

Overall Rating

This boondocking site was our favorite out of an entire week spent in southern Idaho. FR-146 is a dead-end dirt road that follows the North Fork Big Wood River just north of Ketchum/Sun Valley. Turn off ID-75 onto FR-146, which is marked for the Sawtooth NRA ranger station that's located just a few feet up the road. Just north of th... more
