Murdock Campground is composed of 11 campsites located in a pine overstory 2 miles north of the Sawtooth National Recreation Headquarters in the North Fork Canyon. The sites are all first-come, first-serve. This area is terrific for fishing in the Big Wood River and Murdock Creek. Hiking is wonderful in this area with the North Fork, West Fork, and East Fork trail heads leading up into the Hemingway-Boulder Wilderness Area. Wildlife viewing is superb along with the 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 smaller campground tucked back against the mountains. Good shade trees. Close to hiking, fishing and mountain biking. Campsites have a picnic table, fire ring with grill.
