The town of Stanley is very close, visitors can take an afternoon to visit the fascinating Stanley Museum, which reveals the rich history of the area. This is an excellent site for fishing and hiking as Casiono Creek trailhead is close, leading you to either Little Casino Creek or Big Casino Creek towards the Casino Lakes.
Plenty of paths down to Salmon river level to fish or nap.
Limited unlocked bathrooms toilet paper in early spring.
Goose poop and ants everywhere around camp sites.
Located on the banks of the salmon river beautiful spot just outside of town. Several sites located right on the river. Water available in the campground, firewood from the camp hosts, and clean bathrooms.
not many shade trees during the day but it's a cool spot not really for large rvs
Awesome campground near Stanley. Hiking, biking, hot springs
The salmon river is absolutely gorgeous. It has some nice swimming holes or eddies along the river, and the water is perfect for swimming in late summer, though a little chilly in the early summer months. The white sand you can find along the river is soft and beautiful.
I am not the best fisherman but the water up there is so clear with a ton of fish! I was able to catch several trout and eat them! It can get a little crowded on the river but its a ton of fun!
Very steep terrain, only experienced individuals should do the back country. Getting to the river could be steep, but it is very good fishing!
