Natural Features

The Forest comprises about 1.1 million acres, and elevations range from about 1,000 to 12,000 feet, creating precipitous canyons and mountain streams with spectacular waterfalls such as Salmon Creek Falls and Grizzly Falls.

Closed during winter!

Went to camp here but it was closed. Ended up going up the street to Remington and camping there as well as hiking to the hot springs.
