Old Lucile Recreation Site


This site on the Lower Salmon River is a frequent take-out spot for floating the Lower Salmon River from Riggins to Old Lucile via raft, kayak, jet boat or power boat. It is also a launch for other Lower Salmon River trips. The site is largely undeveloped but is near large, sandy beaches and easy access to the Salmon River. Day use area only. Other BLM recreation sites on this stretch of river are Island Bar, Lucile, Shorts Bar, Slate Creek, Skookumchuck, White Bird, Hammer Creek and Pine Bar. Be sure to check those sites for more information and amenities for boat ramps or camping. For river maps, authorized outfitters and shuttle services, see the links below.
