Overview

Easley Campground is located along the beautiful Big Wood River at an elevation of 6800 feet, conveniently close to Ketchum, Idaho only 14 miles south. Visitors enjoy fishing, hiking and soaking at Easley Hot Springs.

Natural Features:

A forest of Douglas fir, ponderosa pine, lodgepole pine and aspen offers plentiful shade in the campground. Colorful summer wildflowers are abundant and willows dot the banks of the river. Temperatures are cool with an average summer high of 78 and a low of 40.

Recreation:

Easley is part of the Sawtooth National Recreation Area, where outdoor activities abound. Fly-fishing for rainbow, brown and brook trout is popular on the Big Wood River, as is float tubing.

The 20-mile Harriman Trail passes through the campground, offering excellent hiking and biking. Numerous trails spur off the Harriman Trail leading to deep canyons, sparkling lakes, swimming holes and more great high country fishing.

The campground offers several family campsites, most of which have scenic views of the Boulder Mountains to the east. Vault toilets and drinking water are provided, but there is no electricity. Roads and parking spurs are gravel.
