This is a typical forest service campground that has sites with shade and happens to be along the salmon river. The second turn is what you want for the main campground. The campground was clean, quiet, and mostly empty. The other campers ran their generators very sparingly so noise wasn’t an issue. We didn’t get a single mosquito bite. The water well was broken so plan accordingly. I hear it’s busier during salmon fishing season and hunting season.

If you’re unfamiliar with the area, this is the last campground before the road turns to gravel. The very last campground is Corn Creek, and it’s a busy place. Towing a camper all the way to Corn Creek would be a very long drive as it’s about 30 miles of gravel, there’s a lot of traffic, and the road is very narrow in many places. This campground (Spring Creek) is a nice campground to base yourself out of if you plan on doing day explorations.

The free dump station. garbage dumpsters, and fresh water site just west of North Fork is a very nice convenience.

We stayed just outside the campground. At the first sign for Spring Creek take a left, it is a woods road. We stayed at the first site on the left. Our site was right on the Salmon River. There are a few other sites here that are not on the water. We did walk to the campground. If you like that sort of camping you might like it. The people who were staying there were using it to launch their rafts. The mosquitoes were bad there. We did take a ride in the car one night as they were pretty ferocious at our site too. It seems that rafting not camping is the big thing on this river. We took a ride to the end of the road one day. The campgrounds along the way were empty except for Spring Creek. There is a campground at the end of the road. The place was packed and very busy with people getting ready to raft the Middle Salmon River. FYI if you do go there leave the hood of your car open and put a small LED light in it. Apparently there is a pack rat problem. We enjoyed the stay at our site. Would we like the other sites? Not so much. There is a place for campers to deposit their trash and waste on the left as you head out.
