The Middle Fork Salmon River is famous for its stunning and spacious campsites.
The camps are typically flat, offer easy access to the waters edge, mesmerizing views and room to spread out so guests can maintain their privacy while enjoying the communal experience of this stunning wilderness adventure. Additionally, most of the campsites have great big ponderosa pines that provide natural canopies and a mix of filtered sun and shade.
Some of the camps on the Middle Fork Salmon River include great swimming holes, others are in spots where the fishing is fantastic, and natural hot springs, either close to camp or within easy access, is a fantastic bonus, especially after a day on the river. Campsites also feature close access to a trail head that hikers can take to climb to high vistas and enjoy the peaceful beauty and serenity of a sunrise.
CAMP NAMES INCLUDE:
- Sheepeater Camp

PAMPERED CAMP LIFE ON THE MIDDLE FORK
As for camp life, we setup everything for guests, carry the gear up from the rafts, and pack you up in the morning. We pamper our guests with big 6 person tents setup for every 2 people, and our helpful guides even get your cots and sleeping bags ready for you.
We prepare the hot showers for guests and serve gourmet meals. [ Check out our NEW chef inspired meal plans introduced this year in 2016 ].
Adventure Sun Valley takes great pride in offering top quality guest services with what we’ve coined as “Pampered Camping” and “You Don’t Lift A Finger” service. Not only do these luxury amenities set us apart from our competition, but it gives our guests ample opportunities to explore and discover, rest, soak in a hot springs pool, fish, swim or get energized by a hike.
OTHER ACTIVITIES TO ENJOY
We play volleyball games, go swimming and snorkeling, jump off rocks into deep pools of river water, take advantage of the awesome fly fishing opportunities, share stories and much more.
One of the neat things about the Middle Fork of the Salmon River is that they allow campfires. Our guests really enjoy the huge beautiful campfires that create a glow of ambiance and warmth.
At night after dinner is complete and the guides have cleaned up, we engage in a variety of fun activities such as poetry jams, random talent shows, and even have accepted interpretive dance as talents.
In the morning, when your guides break camp, you don’t have to do a thing. Our guides do all the work of setting up or tearing down the camps. Sit and enjoy nature, read a book, play cards, sit in the hot springs or just watch the movement of gear and bodies as you meditate on the day before you.
WHEN WE LEAVE THE CAMPSITES
We pack everything out including ashes, and human waste so these camps are kept in their pristine state. The only sign of humans you might see are footprints.
Guests really enjoy the camp life as its a huge part of your wilderness adventure, and often, you’ll meet and get to know people who become lifelong friends, email pals and contribute to the treasured memories of your Middle Fork Salmon River adventure.
