Along the Salmon River, Lightning Creek campground is undeveloped camping at its best. There are no facilities except a portapotty but who needs them when you can fish!

Campsites: There are no tables, fire pits or barbecue stands. Great river access and a place to park your tent or RV make this campground the perfect haven for the serious fisherman.

Water: No drinking water available.

Garbage Services: No garbage service.

Restroom: There is a portapotty available.

Handicap Accessible: No.

Pets: It is not specified but as a courtesy to others pets should be on a leash.

Fishing: Wonderful river fishing.

Boating: No boat launch or boat dock.

Swimming: The river was quite high while we were there. I'm sure when the river drops to a more normal level some people will play in the water.

Wildlife: Whitetail deer and birds of prey are common to the area.

Fee Schedule: No fee.

Campground Reservations: No reservations.

Phone service: No pay phone and no cell reception.

Nearby Services: Services are available in Riggins.
