Shorts Bar Campground

Name: Shorts Bar Campground

Shorts Bar Campground is great for the fishermen who want to park their RV's some place and spend the weekend fishing the Salmon River. It is a big, open undeveloped area. Shorts Bar is just a mile and a half from Riggins.

Campsites: This is a big, open area for undeveloped camping. There are 4 tables and 4 fire pits, but it is not limited to 4 camping parties. RV's were lined up side by side. The more the merrier! There is also a bar 2 miles upstream that doesn't have a name on it where you could camp. There are 5 picnic tables, fire pits and a portapotty at this unmarked bar. The road is 100 yds or so into this area, but very rough and steep. Both places are in prime fishing territory.
