111 Whitetail Drive, Salmon, ID, 83467

If you are looking a clean and peaceful place to relax, watch wildlife and enjoy the outdoors you have found it!  We are located on a scenic byway south of Salmon, Idaho with lots of fresh air.  It is not unusual to see eagles, bighorn sheep, deer and elk from the park.  Many of our guests enjoy sitting in the sun or under one of our large shade trees with their spotting glass, as you never know what you may see!  

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!

CLEAN facilities here: laundry, bathrooms, shower. Basic store items and propane available. Very friendly and helpful new owners. Full hookup pull through gravel sites are very level and somewhat shaded. Grass sites are shaded but lack sewage hookup. Recommended!
