111 Whitetail Drive, Salmon, ID, 83467

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!

Open Dates: May 21 to September 25

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. Additionally, we ask that if you use a mat to not leave it on the grass during the day. 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! 

Overall Rating: 5.0

Fabulous place, super clean and very friendly hosts! Close to trailhead for Goldbug hot springs. Highly recommend.

We rented the cabin since we don't own an RV, but were travelling with someone who was. The owners were very nice and helpful. The cabin was perfect for the 2 of us and had everything we needed. Thank you, Elk Bend RV Park.

We enjoyed our time at Elk Bend Rv Park super great people that own the park they enjoy what they do & do it very well. Every thing some neat & clean, continuing cleaning to rest rooms, office / store spotless, grass continually watered & cut. Again the owners spend time alot of time everyday to maintain this beautiful little paradise. Loved it there will go there again for sure. Dennis Marbury Mesa Arizona

We loved camping at Elk Bend RV Park and will definitely be back. Very clean and quiet. The owners were amazing and went above and beyond to make sure everyone was comfortable and happy. They gave us a lot of information on things to do and see in the area which was great.

Conrad Grams

A very quiet pristine part of the country to park your trailer. The couple that runs it are the best management team I have seen in any campground. I cannot say enough about my experience with my weeklong stay. Excellent Wi-Fi very good Verizon connection. If you need help finding things to do I have never had as much research done for me as they did.

Mark Maniord

Elk Bend has everything you’ll need! Easy access with pull through spots! Fast checking and clean bathrooms/showers! Owners are friendly and we would recommend to everyone! Thanks EB for a great stay!

Marilyn Finnemore

We stayed for ten days in Elk Bend, and had a wonderful experience! Keith and Addy went above a beyond to treat us like honored guests, the bathrooms were immaculate, the WiFi was fast, and the Dusty Mule had great burgers. We also enjoyed walking our dog around the town loop every morning and visiting lakes, ghost towns, ranches, and hot springs. Highly recommend this wonderful place.

Lynn Pasqualetti

A hidden gem 20 miles south of Salmon, Idaho. The owners are lovely and the RV park is pristine. All updated and so quiet and peaceful. We only spent on night passing through but will return if we find ourselves out in Idaho again.

Thank you Lynn for the review. We hope that your travels will bring you this way again. Keith and Addey

Nicole Marsh

By far, one of the best campgrounds we have ever stayed at. It was immaculately clean, the hosts were friendly and attentive, it was the perfect amount of quiet. The hosts were always available to offer recommendations of things to do, and even offered to help us schedule outing. We will continue to come back as often as we can, it’s the perfect place for a weekend away to escape and relax and recharge.

Campground Response

Thank Nicole for the review. We are glad that you enjoyed your visit and was able to relax and recharge. We look forward to seeing you again. Keith and Addey

Great RV park it was easy to get into with a long camper. The owner are very nice. I will defiantly be staying there next year.

Todd Pollock

Campground is small but immaculately maintained with a few spots available for short stays. Staff was very helpful. We enjoyed the area and the setting. We would gladly return if we are in the area again.

courtney cedarholm

Good people and great spot... Got to go to the dusty mule

Glenn Browning

Decent place to stay, nice site, good utilities, but you are right next to your neighbor. In the open with no trees to speak of, we were on a stoned site. Road noise. Owners very friendly and helpful.

Roger Day

Nice little RV park. Great staff. The deer in camp were a bonus. We would stay again if we get that way.
