This airstrip is located adjacent Big Creek, just west of the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness.
The campground is developed, with a pit toilet, drinking water, stoves, and tables. It is located in the shade of the trees and to the west of the runway.
Update: The main building complex at Big Creek Lodge was destroyed by fire in October, 2008. As of June 2015, the Idaho Aviation Foundation has received F.S. approval and a county building permit to reconstruct the lodge, and expects to start building in August. The IAF periodically holds fundraising breakfasts throughout the summer - check its website for schedules.
When finished, the Big Creek Lodge, adjacent to the airstrip, will serve meals to fly-in customers during the summer. It has long been a favorite breakfast fly-in destination for pilots. You can land early in the morning, eat breakfast, and be gone while the air is still calm, before the winds and turbulence come up.
The dirt road going south from the airstrip meets the Big Creek trail head about 2 miles south. The Big Creek trail goes approximately 36 miles east to its confluence with the Middle Fork of the Salmon River. It passes by the airstrips at Dewey Moore, Vines, Cabin Creek, and Soldier Bar. Numerous trails connect to the Big Creek trail so there are many hiking/backpacking opportunities. Rumor has it that the fishing is good along Big Creek.
