This data publication includes conditions of campsites used by boaters along the Middle Fork and Main Salmon Rivers in the Frank Church-River of No Return Wilderness, Idaho. Campsite conditions were first monitored between 1995 and 1996, and again from 2001 to 2004, and then 2008 to 2009. Overall, 13 campsites and 4 control sites were assessed on the Main Salmon River, and 11 campsites and 6 controls sites were assessed on the Middle Fork Salmon River. Data include basic campsite measurements such as condition class, vegetation type of the camp area and satellite area, number of trees and level of tree damage, number of fire rings, information on the number and condition of nearby trails, and other standard campsite data.
