The Salmon River Campground is composed of 30 campsites on the Salmon River situated in a mixed lodgepole pine and meadow/sagebrush environment. The campground is convenient to the town of Stanley and visitors can take an afternoon to visit the fascinating Stanley Museum, which reveals the rich history of the area. To maintain stream bank integrity, sites 1-18 are closed from August 15. Sites 1-18 are opened early in the season to accommodate steelhead fishermen.
