River & Road

The Swinging Bridge campground had the pros and cons of being right off of hwy 55. It’s easy to access the site and Payette River but you can hear the traffic.

Not an ideal site for big rigs. No showers or cell service but there are vault toilets.

Close to Road and River

This is a small camp ground right off Highway 55 and across the Highway from the Payette river.  Lots of shade trees.  Not a lot of room for larger campers or RVs, mostly geared toward tent camping.  I did not get cell service here.

Small, near highway

It’s close to the highway 55 so it’s kind of loud with traffic. Very close to the river so bring your swimsuit
