mainly adding this review so that people will think twice before trying to drive out here with a large camper - or even a small one. I've only camped here in a tent, never brought my camper back here.
The camp is pretty rustic and MILES from anywhere. Its a 65 mile drive from Darby, MT and 133 miles to Grangeville, ID - 200 miles from town to town, gas station to gas station. And its all dirt. Very narrow, remote, only open a few months of the year. The only traffic I've ever seen back here are UTV/ATV, and high clearance 4x4 vehicles. Never a trailer or RV. The route is called the Magruder Corridor and is popular with offroading clubs and dual sport bike owners. During hunting season outfitters will bring horse trailers back here to set up their hunting camps but they are familiar with the area and know the risks. This is a designated wilderness which means that the road can never be improved upon and no new development (camps, toilets, etc) can be added. The road is narrow and steep in many places and there is not room to turn around or pass other vehicles along most of the route. There are several tight switchbacks that trailers cannot do.
The area is beautiful and if you can make the drive in an appropriate vehicle it is worth the time. Plan at least two days for a one way trek on the full route.
Paradise camp is just that. Paradise. A haven away from the dust of the road. The Selway River passes along the edge of camp. Site are small and no parking pads, just a grassy meadow to camp in with a fire ring and table. Two pit toilets in camp. There is an area for livestock separate from the main camp. Only a handful of sites back here and during hunting season it will be full. The rest of the summer there may only be one or two other sites occupied.
