Located on the Middle Fork of the Salmon River and is a busy place. Charter operations haul in gear and passengers for river boating trips. The canyon is narrow and there is a lot of traffic, so stay on the radio and announce your intentions and position, etc.
The 'Airstrip Campground' is located directly adjacent to the runway, and overlooks the river. Other than a potable water at the guard station, there are no campsite ammenities open to the public...so bring your own ammenities. The boating traffic increases in late summer.
Additional campsites are located 1 mile downstream from the runway. The Indian Creek Camps are located on each side of Indian Creek, where it meets the Middle Fork.
There is a nice 4 mile hike from the airstrip southwest up Indian Creek to Pistol Creek and on to some rapids that provide excitement for both rafters and observers. The private Pistol Creek airstrip and community is about 3 miles from Indian Creek and the rapids are about a mile past Pistol Creek. Be sure to respect the privacy of the Pistol Creek community when traversing across their land.
