“camp in the pines along the Salmon River”

I stayed here for 2 nights, mid-week in early May. There were only 4 other sites occupied, but I imagine it is busy and full during the summer season. This is a single loop campground along the Salmon River. The setting is steep-sided river canyon, with the Salmon River just across the road, visible from most camp sites. Campground is very close to main road, which had low traffic when I was there. There are some large pines and other trees in the campground but it has a lot of sunny area. There are 18 sites, several suitable for RVs. I had a 20 ft travel trailer and there were 3 other RVs that were >30ft. Most of the sites have space between them so that it doesn't feel crowded. Overall I liked it and found it peaceful during early season, but think it would be hot and crowded during the summer because the Salmon River is very popular for recreation and Spring Bar is a river access site. No cell signal (Verizon). The road from Riggins to Spring Bar is in good condition, but it is one lane in some portions, so exercise care and be aware of turnouts.
