Flickr album link: Riverside Campground
The Riverside Campground is located next to the Salmon River on Highway 75, which is the main touring route through the Sawtooth National Forest and the National Recreation Area. There are several campsites along the river in this area and the main reason why has to do with the world class fly fishing. Kayaking or rafting the river is also popular to do, while setting up a basecamp will present opportunities to explore the vast Sawtooth Mountains wilderness.
The Riverside Campground is developed and it has parking pads that can accommodate medium size RV campers, but this cosy nook is best suited for car and tent campers. Basic facilities are located onsite and drinking water is available. There are only 17 campsites, but because there are several other campgrounds in the vicinity, an open spot can usually be found. The tall pines provide plenty of shade and it is easy to sling a hammock, which means this definitely is a good place to catch up on rest and relaxation. The Salmon River is right across the road, so the campsite chargrills will come in handy for cooking trout for dinner. Best of all, the squirrels certainly stay busy and they provide plenty of free entertainment, so be sure to keep the Riverside Campground in mind when planning a Sawtooth National Forest adventure!
