You need good brakes!!

It is not the easiest to get to, and the road is a test for your engine and brakes, but once you arrive it is a quiet peaceful park with great water access. We originally had a reservation for a view site with no hook ups, but upon arrival they had a hookup site(#104) available, and the temps were nearly 100 degrees, so we took it! The park is large and thus the areas seem nicely spaced apart, never felt crowded, even though there are over 100 sites. There is lots of shoreline and plenty of water for everyone. We launched the kayaks and enjoyed the water ourselves- paddled to the opposite shore and found a remote unoccupied camp.

Great dry camping

We spent a week here this last summer. Awesome place for hikes and hot springs. Also dog friendly Everywhere we went. Beautiful area wit tons of trees.

Wild and scenic

The Selway is one of the most beautiful places in Idaho, and this campground is a good place to stay on your visit! There are plenty of sites (32) to stay at, however it can tend to get crowded, so I recommend reserving a spot ahead of time. The crowds are really the only downside to this site (if you prefer more quiet and privacy) but fortunately there are other sites along the river that are also great spots to camp. This campsites has plenty of amenities and many of the sites are pretty accessible. This is a great place for families, people with limited mobility, and the elderly to visit. There are vault toilets, potable water, and bear-proof dumpsters that serve the whole camp. Individual sites should all have tent spots, picnic tables, and a fire ring. The loop around the campsite is paved. Kids and families often ride their bikes around the loop. Like much of central Idaho, the wildlife includes black bears and rattlesnakes, so remember to be cautious and aware of our wilder friends! The area offers a great variety of recreation opportunities. Slower areas of the river offer great swimming, and the Lower Selway makes a great day trip on kayaks or rafts. There is lots of biking, hiking, and horseback riding along the river and through the mountains. Selway Falls are beautiful and a really fun stop.

Good area attractions

This is a pretty decent place to camp. There are other sites in the area that might be a little quieter and less expensive, but I would bump this site up on the list in terms of how easily it is to get to some of the attractions in the area! The giant cedars and Elk River Falls are a must stop if you head this way. It can be crowded, and a little noisy. Interesting plants and mushrooms to see, depending on time of year!

Worse camp site ever!

Good thing we brought our own toliet paper! We arrived on a Wednesday, and it didn't get filled until Friday. By the time we left, the outhouse was pretty ripe. You could tell it hadn't been cleaned in awhile, because of the cob webs. Camp site wasn't level. Fire rings were coming out from the bottom. Sorry Selway, not happy campers this weekend. We'll stick with the Northfork 😀🤗

Beautiful

Great sized and well spaced campsites. Most accommodate rvs. Sites are on the north fork of the Clearwater. Beautiful location with large trees and good fishing.

Family Fun

My family has been camping here for years. There is plenty of room to explore and have a good time. It is also just a few miles away from Fenn pond for the more leisure fisherman.

Clean, and peaceful campsites next to the river.

Outhouse and campsites are very clean, with plenty of space between site's. Peaceful, relaxing place to visit. To cold to swim in June.

Great river access

This campground directly borders the river with many sites sitting just feet from it. There are some pools built from river rock that allow for the water to warm to a comfortable temperature before the rest of the river does, making swimming much more feasible. The river is wide here, with a relatively slower current. If you're here to float the river, this is a perfect pull out/put in spot.

Forested Oasis

Amidst the rolling hills of farmland and open spaces emerges this deeply forested reservoir. Wonderful fishing, trout, bass, catfish, and even tiger musky. This isn't a great lake for swimming, as it's loaded with thick algae. It is great for boating a small boat or getting lost in the thick pines around it.
