I have stayed in campgrounds from coast to coast. This quiet, well managed, beautiful campground is the best I have stayed in. The rates are most reasonable. The owner, Anna, is really nice and helpful with anything you might need. Whether you stay in a river view spacious lot or not, you are just steps from one of the most beautiful rivers in the country. I highly recommend you put this spot on your must stay list.

We stayed here in a Class A Motorhome.

We stayed here for 2 weeks in April & May 2012. This is the most beautiful park we have ever been fortunate enough to stay at. We parked right beside the river and it is so beautiful. Anna, the owner is very friendly & helpful with information about things to do in the area. The park is clean with lot's of green grass and Weeping Willow trees. We are coming back in the fall and it will probably be our "special summertime" home. WE are full time RV'rs and this park is the best.

This is a jewel of a RV park. Right on the Salmon River withing a few hundred yards of the bridge and road that takes you over the ridge into Hells Canyon. Clean new facilities. Everything you need for a night or a month. Great spot and trip for those traveling from Canada to the South West.
