Caribou Campground is composed of 7 campsites which are first-come, first-serve, and is situated in a pine overstory near the Sawtooth National Recreation Area Visitor Center. Popular trail heads in the area include North Fork, West Fork, East Fork, and Murdock Creek. The trails in Northfork Canyon lead to Murdock Creek, Amber Lakes, Window Lake and into the Hemingway-Boulder Wilderness Area with views of Ryan Peak, Kent Peak, Glassford peak and Silver Peak in the Hemingway-Boulder mountains all of which are over 11,000 feet in elevation.. This is a terrific area for fishing in the Big Wood river and Murdock creek, hiking, and the wildlife viewing is tremendous. RV's and trailers are not recommended for this campground because of the inability to turn around once you enter.
