Falls Campground (South Fork of the Snake River)

May 21, 2008 

ROGER PHILLIPS

Falls Campground near the South Fork of the Snake River feels like North Idaho or the West Cascades more than eastern Idaho. The South Fork's dense cottonwood forest feels like a jungle with its tall, broad-canopied trees and lush underbrush. The campground is near Palisades Reservoir on the Wyoming border, but it is a fairly easy six-hour drive because it is mostly freeway driving.
