Good base camp for activities

A Ranger in Challis told us about Pole Flat CG. We were looking for a small campground near, but not on the Salmon river, and off the main road.

There are 10 sites spaced nicely around a loop road. The CG is near the road to Custer but not on it so traffic noise is minimal.

All 10 sites are decent sized. Sites 5 and site 7 are deep and should accommodate large 5th Wheel TB’s and such. To access these two sites bear left coming into the CG. For most of the other sites bear right on the CG road.

The vault has men’s and women’s sides and appears to be recently painted. It was clean and well kept when we visited. There are two water pump jacks. Only the jack behind site 1 was working during our stay.
