Idaho RV camp

Looking for advise on RV campgrounds along US93 in Idaho, somewhere between Challis and maybe as far north as Lolo just below Missoula.

The DW and I will be traveling mid-August in a 36' pusher with a 14' Harley Hauler in tow. Will be in the area for a week so wanting full hook-ups, 50 amp is best but 30 would do just fine. Pull through would be nice as well but not a deal killer.

We enjoy the quainter, more laid back Mom-n-Pop campgrounds with nice scenery, peace and quiet and like-minded neighbors, the kind of place where you get to know the owner and make a friend for life. Being within walking distance of town would be a bonus as well, never know when you might need to walk home from the local pub .

Any first hand advice would be much appreciated

cheers...

On of our best finds in Idaho. Very small park with sites along the river, facing a mountain with a lot of wildlife roaming it. You can pull in or back in. Owners are great. We plan to stop there again this year. There are miles of exploration and scenery in the National Forest and along the river. We had planned to stay a day or two and ended up spending a week. They are also one of the few places along the river that has sewage hookups.

Don't know this park, but drove through this valley last summer...just beautiful on the Salmon River, particularly if you've had rain during the Spring.

Know that it can get warm tho, so if you can, get 50 amp.

Have a ball

We have a reservation at Wagonhammer's the first week in August for a back-in site right on the Salmon River. The only negative was the riverfront sites do not have sewer. The owners said that their bath house was very nice and most people opted for using them in order to camp right on the river. They do have a dump station available and full hook-up pull-thru sites but they are not riverfront. Wagonhammer's is located in North Fork Idaho which is very close to the previous recommendation in this post but that campground only has a few sites an it is right on Hwy 93.

The Salmon River valley *is* beautiful, all the way to Lolo pass and across. Been through it on the Harley a number of times, but this will be our first time in the Motorhome with the scooter in tow. We've become pretty clever about finding lodging over the years, been all across the western US on the scooter a number of times and always winged it for lodging. Maybe we were just lucky but we always found a place to hang out for the night, even in August. But finding a spot for a large RV... well, I think making reservations would be the prudent thing to do

If you are truly looking for something quaint and laid back "mom and pop" check out Challis Hot Springs. No sewer hook up but they do have a dump station.

Yes...and if you can swing it, 6 days on either the Middle Fork or the Main Salmon is a lifetime memory. Took my 10 year old son on one 18 years ago. Finally got back with my non-swimmer DW last summer. White water rafting second to none in the country, except maybe the Canyon.
