I checked off "pull thru" sites but there are only 2 or 3 of them. The rest are back-in. The pit toilets are kept very clean. The roads and sites are asphalt and fairly level. Sites have picnic tables and campfire grills. Half of the campground is on the river side of Idaho 75 the other half are located on the other side of the road. The water is by old fashioned pump, which means you can't hook a water hose up to it. There is a dump station and drinking water is available to dump/fill your tanks 1 mile south of Stanley, ID., at the ranger station. A $5.00 donation is appreciated. We camped at Salmon River Campground (Forest Service) in a Motorhome.

The only reason this campground did not get a 10 is because there are no hookups. This is a beautiful National Forest Service Campground located about 4 miles northeast of Stanley and is right on the beautiful Salmon River, the "River of No Return" which was the setting for the movie starring Marilyn Monroe. The sites are all very long, paved, and many are right on the banks of the river. This is one of the few National Forest Campgrounds in this Sawtooth Wilderness area where the roads and sites are fully paved and can handle a big rig. We pulled our 40' motorhome (with ease) head into the site so we could see the river from the windshield. The river was about 30 feet in front of us, with lots of white water boiling over the rocks. The camp manager was gracious and welcomed us like family. We boon docked here for only two nights due to our schedule, but we will definitely return for a longer stay. We camped at Salmon River Campground (Forest Service) in a Motorhome.
