Salmon Lake Park & Resort
Reviewed Oct. 28, 2021


Salmon lake campground is a mixture between an off the beaten path campground and a destination style park. The campground is fairly large and has numerous old buildings and vehicles to look at as well as a lake to swim and play. At this campground there is a stage for them to host music type festivals, so the campsite layout makes sense to maximize getting as many RVs on the property as possible. The campsites were established in their open fields of grass, are very tight and far from level. The building that originally attracted us to the park are now dilapidated and unsightly. There is a vast difference between vintage/rustic and dumpy/neglected.

The folks that run the place seem to be very nice and check in was fairly simple. There are no reservations available for a specific sites and the vast majority of campsites are 30 amp. I spent a considerable amount of time driving around the park trying to locate a campsite that has 50 amp service. Very few sites have any amenities such as campfire rings or tables. You pay for a section of grass (with hook ups) to park your rig on and that’s about it. The water is also heavily sulphuric which isn’t a bad thing, it was just a shock.

Lastly, the majority of roads are compacted sandy, dirt mixture making it a little dicey to travel in a heavy rig. We had a nice visit but the campground wasn’t for us.
