Saddle Creek Campground


Area Status: Closed
Distant forested mountains and canyon slopes

Saddle Creek Campground is a smaller site located on the rim of Hells Canyon along the Hat Point Road. With 7 walk-in tent-only sites, visitors can enjoy a remote campout or just picnic and look across Hells Canyon at the Seven Devils Mountains in Idaho. The area was heavily burned with wildfires in the past so shade and mature trees are scarce near the campground.
