111 Whitetail Drive, Salmon, ID, 83467

Located on scenic by-way, 20 miles south of Salmon, Idaho.

Elk Bend RV Park is located just south of Salmon, ID on one of the most scenic drives in the western United States. Elk Bend is famous for its wildlife, you can see eagles, deer, big horn sheep, and mountain goats around the area and along the river. You can also wake up to a fabulous view with elk and big horn sheep grazing on the mountain hillsides. The river is just across the street and is great for floating and fly fishing. The famous Goldbug Hot Springs Trailhead is a short drive (1.3 miles) then a 2-mile hike away. Campers can look forward to a number of great attractions just beyond the campground including the Lewis and Clark Trail, Lemhi County Historical Society & Museum, Sacajawea Interpretive, Cultural & Educational Center and the Salmon-Challis National Forest. This is one stop not to miss on your travels or vacation. Amenities at the park include: water, sewerage, laundry, dump station, big rig access and 20/30/50 amp sites. Hope to see you soon!

Grass Sites (water/electric)

Our grassy sites are in demand during the summer months by the smaller RVs (these are shorter sites and will NOT accomodate Class A's or 5th Wheels). In order to keep our grassy sites looking good they require a lot of love. That means if your stay exceeds 3-4 days in a site, we may need to coordinate moving you to another site in order to perform routine maintenance (mowing/watering). Usually, our guests will use the free dump station and will relocate as to only move once. Either way, we do our best to work with our guests to coordinate if necessary. Thanks for understanding.

Hike to Goldbug Hot Springs or put your kayaks or floats over in the Salmon River across the street and float down to Dugout Dick’s!  Book a horse-back ride with a local outfitter and see the back-country.  Visit William's Lake or go Lime Creek Trail.  Walk across to the street to the Dusty Mule Bar and Grill and enjoy their burgers and hospitality!

Jake Kenyon

Beautiful camp site with great access for big rig. The owners are super friendly and accommodating. This place is a gem and we will definitely be back. Hunting and fishing friendly.

Brad Bartholomew

Great spots, quiet place. Right across from a beautiful river. The owner was great, very helpful and friendly.

Jeff Myhre

I hadn't stayed here since 2005. The new owner, Stuart, was awesome! He was very friendly and welcoming, and even had a campfire going for everyone to sit around and enjoy. The grounds were immaculate. Well maintained, with beautiful trees and lawn. The bathrooms were warm, cozy, private, and spotless. We loved our three night visit and certainly recommend it!! Thank you Stuart!!

Campground Response

Thank you very much! Don't wait so long to come back next time! ;)

Pam Lea

Very clean, nice park. Owner was super nice. Gave us recommendations on places to see and places to eat. If in the area we will stay there again

Bonnie Pancho

Very nice campground, quite and clean. Surrounded by beautiful mountains. We will return. 👍👍

Taylor Willis

Loved this campsite, staff was great and the bathrooms were clean and well kept. Grass for the dogs and a restaurant walking distance across the street. Would stay here again.

Wally Hattan

this is a small well run and clean campground 20 miles from salmon.

Michael Burke

Stu, the new owner, runs a very nice park. He was on-site most all of the time and very approachable. We stayed in one of the electric/water sites that had green, grassy areas. Wi-Fi was good enough to download a movie after about an hour. Good Verizon coverage. Nice bathroom/showers. Laundry center, top notch. Excellent movie collection to borrow from. Propane available on-site to refill from. Across the road from Salmon River and The Dusty Mule bar, which had pretty good food too. Would recommend for a future stay.

Debrorah Husby

Our stay was great. We also went to the bar for dinner. Thanks

Robyn Simmons

Nice campground & view. Spots not to close. Hose very nice & informative.

Ken Landgaard

Great Place! You won't be disappointed.

Bruce Muir

Best lawn for tents of any on our trip! Needs larger bathroom space.

Stephanie Child

Small RV resort just off the hwy. Locked bathrooms, only one toilet and shower per gender. Bring your own toiletries and don't forget to wipe down the shower (towel provided for that..) It was very quiet and the owner locks the gate at night for security. Only used the power hook up and there was a water hook up as well. I believe there were no sewer hook ups. Wifi code provided at check in and worked great. Loved that we could walk across the street to the Dusty Mule for dinner otherwise you have a windy 26 min drive to Salmon. Gave 4 stars as the office store was a little sparse in provisions.

Campground Response

Thanks for the review! We do have 8 full hook-up spots. The store will be better supplied next season. I just bought the place and am working the store part out. Thanks again and come back and see us anytime!

Jody Gerst

Very quiet, beautiful setting! Stewart was an extremely helpful campground owner.

Kayla Trygstad

Gorgeous little RV park with a large grassy area. Park owner was incredibly friendly and helpful. Beautiful setting and very well maintained. Absolutely would recommend this park.

Diana J

Poor Communication. We were not able to make it to this destination; I tried several times to contact the park to cancel and no one would reply.

Cheryl Hamer

Very nice small rv camping spot across the street from the Salmon River and a fun restaurant. Very helpful and friendly owner. I had a lovely grass spot (E/W) under beautiful shade trees. Easy access to dump station. Loved it!

John Kern

Nice campground. Clean bathrooms and nice grassy area for our 21ft trailer. Owner was great, friendly and even gave us some tomato paste for our pasta.

Elliott Cobbley

A treasure tucked in along the Salmon River. Saw both a 4-point and 2-point buck one morning on the hillside just outside our RV. Owner/management friendly and very accommodating. Very clean park; full grass and shade trees at most sites. Worth the stop!

Gary Dickson

Very clean and neat. The bath house was very nice and also clean. Stu was helpful and knowledgeable about the area. Right off of Highway 93, so some road noise, but minimal. Arthur likes his next scuffed and but scratched. Very nice one night stay. I could see us staying longer in the future.
