First of all, best restrooms I have seen! Newly remodeled and clean as can be. Occasionally, there was an issue with the on-demand hot water system. Owners and camp hosts were very friendly and suggested things to do and places to eat in the area as area appears really remote at first blush. It is a very quiet campground in the evening, so great for sleeping. We had a tree in our spot which was great for shade. Spacious spots and well marked. WiFii is good. Cell service for Verizon is a little spotty but it is a mountainous area so to be expected. The office has a cute shop. Laundry is available from 9 AM - 6 PM. We camped at Wagonhammer RV Park & Campground in a Tent Trailer.

This was one of the nicer parks I have visited. I am traveling with a dog so the the "Dog Island" was exceptionally enjoyed by my pet. I am not a fisherman but the opportunity is definitely right out your door as the Salmon River borders one side of the park. The Host's were very nice, offering small social events which everyone was invited. They also were helpful in making suggestions of places to see. Wifi was good most of the time. Verizon was spotty. Grounds were well kept. I will be staying here again when I visit this area. We camped at Wagonhammer RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

A Wonderful campground next to the Snake River. The owners were great and worked hard to make our stay very pleasant. Would come back here as much as we could. The Wi-Fi worked great right from our camper. Plenty of open space for even the largest of rigs. You cant go wrong staying here. The owner told us of a nice drive down the river which made the day for us. We camped at Wagonhammer RV Park & Campground in a Truck Camper.

We have stayed here many times and always enjoy it. Owners are warm, caring people who have a beautiful park. They have recently added a cellphone booster antenna, and we had Verizon service, although it was intermittent. Much better than no service for sure! We return each time we're in the area, and often extend our stay. Happy Hour is held in the main building and is always a fun way to meet your neighbors from all over the country. The facilities are always spotless, the gift shop to die for, and the park site on the Salmon River is quite lovely. We camped at Wagonhammer RV Park & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Wow, nice park with very nice and clean showers, friendly staff and beautiful surroundings. Used this park as an overnight stop. WiFi worked well the night we arrived (the next morning it was broken, at least the owners were immediately attending the problem and trying to fix it). Laundry facilities worked fine as well, and apart from some reckless neighbor who was loading/unloading his pickup for about an hour early in the morning at about 1:30 am, but who should have left by now, it was quiet during the night. Sites are all grassy, but rather level and spacious enough also for big rigs. Park offers Good Sam rates. Can recommend this place. We camped at Wagonhammer RV Park & Campground in a Truck Camper.

First, the good: I have to say that this is a beautiful area, and a prime piece of river front real estate for an RV park. The folks that own it and run it are great. There are outdoor recreational opportunities nearby to satisfy almost anyone's passion. The owners have a little gift shop on the premises, and they also sell a few staples, including beer, wine, and ice. The restrooms and showers are super clean, and there is a small laundry facility off the front lobby. My wife and I have been to this park several times, and until this last visit, have really enjoyed ourselves there. Now, the not so good. There are few factors could that make this park less than ideal for some. No cable TV is available, and there is no Verizon cell phone reception. WiFi is good, however. The river front sites have the prettiest view, but they only have water and electric hookups, no sewer. The pull throughs in the next row back do have full hookups, including sewer. There is a dump station on site, but they will charge you $10 to dump, even after you stay there. There is a free dump station up the road a few miles north and west, and there is another free one down in Challis, an hour or so south. The W&E sites are not terribly expensive, but it still adds a bit of irritation, inconvenience, and/or added expense. It will bother some, and not bother others. The sites are all grass, and they are mostly very well kept. There are some bare and rough spots here and there. You are not permitted to put out any type of porch mat, however, so when you are selecting a site and parking your rig, be sure to pick a site with good grass. It's not bad in good weather, but not so good in the rain. Ask me how I know this. Some sites are in the shade, but many others are in the sun. The hookups have what I would consider to be non-standard placement (depending on your rig), so be sure you have an extension cord and an extra water hose available. You might have to run the lines under your unit. Again, I speak from experience. Also, the sites are fairly close together. Not a big deal when the park is not full, but it may bother some as the vacant sites get filled. The park is laid out along the Salmon River, which runs roughly north/south in that area. The south end of the park is right on the river. Great view, but the restrooms & showers can be a bit of a hike if you are camped on that end. There is a foot bridge at the north end that crosses over to an island in the river. It is accessible by walking in between a couple of the W&E RV sites. This is a great area to let your dog off-leash and/or enjoy a "nature walk" if you wish. The owners keep it pretty well trimmed up for walking. Be advised, however, that the owners have allowed a large group of migrant workers to tent camp on the island for the summer. When we were there, we observed several full families living under plastic tarps on the island. The workers parked their vehicles at the entrance to the footbridge, in between W&E RV sites, and in close proximity to camper units. Each morning, a group of workers would get up, come over across the bridge, and get ready to go out to work. They would gather at the footbridge entrance, start their vehicles and let them warm up for 15-20 minutes. They would use our picnic table to change shoes and get dressed, talk loudly among themselves, and continually open and close vehicle doors. Finally, they would leave for the day by 7:30 or so. Then, they would come back in the evening. The latest time observed was 11:50 PM. Same routine as the morning, but in reverse, and with headlights on. Also, during the day, the laundry facilities and the restrooms were pretty busy. If we chose to have breakfast or dinner outside at the picnic table, we had to endure the activity and close proximity to strangers carrying on. When we ate at our dinette inside the trailer, we looked out to see several vehicles parked, and a half dozen blue tarp tents. The lack of privacy, the lack of courtesy, and the blocked views really turned us off. If you have a Class A Pusher in the full hookups area, no worries. If you have a W&E sight on the north end, you will definitely notice. Overall, I would rate this facility as a 7. It's better than a one night stand, but not quite an RV resort. We camped at Wagonhammer RV Park & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Absolutely wonderful! If you like the wilderness and a slower pace of life, then visit Wagonhammer, a nicely laid out park on the banks of the Salmon River with 50 Amps throughout, full hookups in the middle and water/power on the river edge. WiFi is good with several towers, and there is tent camping available, too. The owners have set up bug attractors everywhere so there were very few bugs around. Be aware that there is no cell signal in North Fork. Salmon has great cell service and LTE when you go down shopping. Limited foodstuffs in North Fork, but they do have a gas station. We camped at Wagonhammer RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Rate includes Good Sam discount and no sewer. This is a very nice park directly on the Salmon River. We backed in to a nice site about 50' from the river. Riverfront sites have no sewer, but are more spacious and enjoy better views. Staff all very friendly and helpful. Bathrooms and showers were very clean. No cell phone service, and no TV w/o satellite. Ten dollar dump fee charged but not unreasonable considering the low basic camping rate. North Fork is two miles north and has a very nice cafe/store/gas station. We camped at Wagonhammer RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Very clean & quiet RV park. Has a bridge over the river to an island where the dogs can run off-leash. Saw deer, mountain sheep (or goats, don't know the difference) and eagle's nest. Very nice park with friendly staff. We camped at Wagonhammer RV Park & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is a campground RV park right along the river. The sites are pretty and the hosts are great. Sadly there were some really big forest fires in the area and we had to leave early the next morning because of the smoke. We would love to come back here and spend a couple of days. We camped at Wagonhammer RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

This owner couple went out of their way to see to every need. Sent us to 100 acre ranch for dinner and it was the best home cooked meal we have had in a long time went back again. Went fishing with him in the river and we caught about 40. The horse back riding was the highlight. We saw plenty of wild life, if it were not for the smoke from the fire the view would have been awesome. The meteor shower on the 11th was outstanding. The park is very pet friendly and everyone picked up after their pets. We will definitely stay here again. We camped at Wagonhammer RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

The premium site is too narrow, with trees touching the slide outs. In order to use the hook ups, our rear levelers were off the pad and couldn't use them. No television! We camped at Wagonhammer RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

If you are in the Salmon, North Fork area do no pass up this park. At least a quarter mile off the highway, lots of room to walk your dog. Great sites, some on the river. Wonderful owners who will go out of their way to do what ever they can for you. Very clean rest rooms and showers and a nice gift shop. A snack get together every Friday afternoon. Beautiful view of the Salmon river and mountains from all sites. We stayed two weeks. We camped at Wagonhammer RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.
