“Gorgeous, cozy spot on the Salmon River. ”

Overall Rating

We stayed here just as the weather was turning cold and the FS started closing some of their campgrounds, turning off water,etc. we got good info on what was still open from the Stanley visitor's center and set out to find our spot on the River. We loved the site as soon as we saw it. Compared to the other CGs along the river this one was much more "in" the woods/canyon/river. Much more beautiful. People with. Ginger rigs than ours may hesitate. We were fine.

Our only complaint was the bathroom - not the tidiest. End of season? Sites however were pristine. It was in all other ways idyllic. We even saw an eagle! It was close enough to Stanley and cell service to pop over and we did a GREAT day trip in the other direction to Lemhi Pass, where Lewis and Clark crossed the continental divide. It will be closed for the season Sometime in the coming weeks.
