“We understand the importance of events like this to Idaho’s rural communities, as are the lands we manage in the area,” said BLM’s Coeur d’Alene District Manager Gary Cooper. “When we can work together with local officials and combine our limited resources, we achieve the best outcomes. We sincerely appreciate the efforts of Idaho County Sheriff Doug Giddings and the Salmon River Cowboy’s Association.”
If you will be camping at Shorts Bar or Island Bar non-fee recreation sites, please help us to take good care of the river, campground facilities and the surrounding land so it remains a quality experience for visitors now and in the future. For specific information on camping requirements at these sites, please visit the BLM’s Lower Salmon River website.
