Easley Campground (Wood River Valley Area)

Area Status: Open

Easley Campground is situated in groves of cottonwood and aspen and is composed of 10 campsites including 2 double-sites which can be reserved at www.recreation.gov or by calling (877)444-6777. Easley Campground is located along the beautiful Big Wood River at an elevation of 6,800 feet, conveniently close to Ketchum only 14 miles south. Visitors enjoy fishing, hiking and soaking at Easley Hot Springs. A forest of Douglas fir, ponderosa pine, lodgepole pine and aspen offers plentiful shade in the campground. Colorful summer wildflowers are abundant and willows dot the banks of the river. The campground provides easy access to the 18 mile Harriman Trail. There is a hot springs swimming pool with a lifeguard at adjacent Easley Resort. Easley is part of the Sawtooth National Recreation Area, where outdoor activities abound. Fly-fishing for rainbow, brown and brook trout is popular on the Big Wood River, as is float tubing. This is a terrific place for hiking, viewing wildlife and the scenery.
