Shoup Bridge Recreation Site

The BLM Shoup Bridge Recreation Site is a small, convenient campground that accommodates both RVs and tents located on the main Salmon River. The site is named after George Shoup, the first Governor of Idaho, who later became a U.S. Senator. The area is shaded with cottonwood trees and is a popular launch site for rafters and anglers. Only hatchery steelhead, identifiable by a clipped adipose fin, can be kept and barbless hooks are required.
