We stayed here because it was close to the Bathhouse hot springs, Yankee Dredge and old mining town. Every one has a bad day he thought he was done for the day but self check in was not work so I had to knock on his door to pay for camp site. The sound of the river was great for sleeping and the stars were vary bright.

This is where you camp when you haven’t made reservations and can’t get in to Redfish Lake...this and the 3 campgrounds farther north. It is situated on a narrow piece of land between the river and the highway, so there is a lot of daytime traffic noise. But some of the sites are large and lovely, level and paved. Trying to get to the river, close as it is, can be very frustrating, as there really aren’t any paths or little beaches like there are on so many Idaho rivers. Also this is the higher part of the Salmon, so it’s quite shallow. Good for tubing, even for kids. The $8 is for seniors with a pass...others it’s $16. Easy access, only a couple of miles from Stanley.
