Mackay Bar Campground
Resting near the north bank of the mighty Salmon River, Mackay Bar campground offers three campsites, tables and fire grates. Parking is limited. Access to this campground is via a very rough, winding road with many tight switchbacks. Low-range, 4-wheel drive is recommended, with no trailers. Note: Be considerate of adjacent private ownership. Be Aware of rattlesnakes and poison ivy!
