Will do for an overnight

A wide spot along the road, this free BLM campground has 5 drive up campsites and 2 walk in. All have really nice covered picnic areas and pretty good fire pits. There are two vault toilets, one at either end of the campground. There is also a water pump by the boat ramp. The river is right next to the campground, with a few riffles that can be heard in the campground at night it is pretty quiet as travel on the main highway tapers off. You are about a dozen miles from the town of Challis with gas stations and grocery stores. There are ZERO trees in this campground, but you can probably swim in the river(just do it at low water levels so you don’t end up like the gold prospector the campground is named for).
