Wonderful campground along the Salmon River. Sites are well spaced out and easy to get into. Somewhat sparse tree cover, but it is adequate (my solar panels loved it). Our space was level -- did not see many blocks, so I think most sites are very level. Access to river via trail. A quiet alternative to the zoo at Redfish Lake. Water is available in the campground and is of a very high quality, but it is via a hand pump -- make sure you fill your tanks before you arrive. Dump stations and drinking water are available two miles away at either the ranger station or Redfish Lake. The ranger station may have the most scenic dump in the world. Keep in mind though that the drinking water hose has a narrow diameter -- it can take 20-30 minutes to fill your water tank. There is an adequate market in Stanley for food, but the nearest "real" supermarket is probably in Challis. All in all, a wonderful campground and we will definitely return. We camped at Sunny Gulch Campground, Sawtooth National Forest in a Travel Trailer.

We found this to be a very pleasant campground. It is set among lodge pole pine, with views of the Sawtooth Mountains. The Salmon River runs adjacent to the campground, and can be heard from much of the campground. Only a few sites have views of the river. The roads and spurs are paved, as is the area around the picnic tables and fire pits. Each site also has a leveled tent pad. Overall, the facilities are excellent. Water is by hand pump only. When I filled a bucket, the water didn't look very clean. I am sure it is safe, but I would bring my own water for cooking and drinking. The vault toilets are in modern concrete buildings. They are spotlessly clean and very fresh smelling. There are no showers in the campground, although showers are available near Redfish Lake. The roads are easy to navigate for big rigs. Many sites will accommodate a 40' motorhome with toad. Our site handled our 40' motorhome, LARGE toad, and motorcycle with room to spare. Of the campgrounds in the immediate area, this seems the best suited for larger RVs. Some sites are not as level as they could be- we ended up with both front wheels of our motorhome off the ground. Most sites are well separated, but there is relatively little undergrowth for privacy. The lodge pole pines will provide minimal shade. You can hear the traffic on the highway, but we didn't find it objectionable. We were pleasantly surprised to have decent Verizon cellular service. Internet access thru our aircard was intermittent, but better than nothing!This location is less than 3 miles from Redfish Lake. There is a dump station available near Redfish Lake, and another one near the ranger station, about 3 miles north of the campground. Both dump stations have a $5.00 fee, and drinking water is available at each. The town of Stanley is about 5 miles away, and has several restaurants, a small grocery, fuel, lodging, and post office. We will definitely return to Sunny Gulch when in the area! We camped at Sunny Gulch Campground, Sawtooth National Forest in a Motorhome.
