Idlewild Campground is deep in the Klamath National Forest on the North Fork of the Salmon River, 20 miles west of the town of Etna and Highway 3. This remote campground is most popular with hikers and anglers. Several interesting trails are nearby, some leading to the north into the Marble Mountain Wilderness. Wading and swimming are available off the gravel bar when water levels in the Salmon River are safe.
Idlewild Campground offers 11 scenic and spacious campsites for RVs, trailers, and tents. Drinking water is available in the summer but may not be at other times of the year. All campsites are first-come, first-served.
