Almost to Big Cottonwood, unmarked spot

What an incredible spot! On the north entrance/end coming out of Jarbidge and the Jarbidge wilderness, this little spot lies just next to Big Cottonwood, and truly can only be seen heading toward the campground, not away from it. It’s right up against the river and has excellent privacy. There is a designated fire pit, perfect access to the beautiful flowing river, and is easy to drive in and out of.

I will absolutely hope to stay here again, that is, if we can find it twice ;)
