Best ever

Small loop with no traffic or noise. Bike distance to Harriman trail and easy access into Ketchum for a coffee or wine run ! Stream to wash up in. No water or electric but clean out bathroom. Water is available a short walk to a different campsite. Awesome views.

Caribou Campground is located in Idaho
