Sawtooth NF - Chemeketan CG ??'s

Starting to plan our late spring/early summer trip for this year. Spent a week in the Sawtooth's last June along Baker Creek north of Ketchum. Was planning a stop or visit to the area along the Salmon River where Chemeketan NF Campground is located. Time restraints kicked that idea in the **s!!! So now this year we are again thinking of staying in that area as possible and maybe also around Baker Creek area again before heading up into Montana and on to Glacier NP.

Looking for any local advice or info regarding open dispersed along the Salmon as can be seen on Google Earth, and any info on the CG itself. Looks like if someone has reserved the CG, they have reserved the entire place!! Can anyone else use any open sites, or can they stay in their site if they arrive before the reserved window?? Nat Forest site doesn't have very much info other than you can use if not reserved!! Duh!!!

Any other areas that can be reasonably accessed with a 34ft trailer and SUV that would be "perfect" spots for a week or so!! Come on, I won't tell anyone else!!!

Chemeketan campground is a group campground; not individual sites. It's listed as only ONE group site.


There's lots of dispersed camping between Ketchum and Stanley; some you can see from the highway. Stop at the ranger's station.
