The Salmon-Challis National Forest covers over 4.3 million acres
in east-central Idaho. Included within the boundaries of the Forest
is 1.3 million acres of the Frank
Church-- River of No Return Wilderness Area, the largest contiguous wilderness
area in the Continental United States. Rugged and remote, this country
offers adventure, solitude and breathtaking scenery. The Forest
also contains Borah
Peak, Idaho's tallest peak, the Wild
& Scenic Salmon River and the Middle Fork of the Salmon River.
The area is a highly desired destination for hunting, fishing, white-water
rafting and many other popular recreational pursuits.
Your Safety is Important to Us.
Idaho state law currently allows individuals under 16 years old to operate off-highway vehicles (OHV) on National Forest System roads whether or not they have a driver's license. When traveling on National Forest System roads to or from your favorite camping or hunting spot, you may encounter other drivers of all ages with varying experience levels and different types of motorized vehicles. Please take extra care to watch for all kinds of traffic to avoid life-altering collisions on roads managed by your national forest.
The Salmon-Challis National Forest will be submitting an application to the Idaho Department of Parks and Recreation (IDPR) for Grant funds to partially fund the Corn Creek Launch Site Improvement Project. The funds would be used to improve safety and accessibility for users of the Corn Creek launch site by improving the existing boat launch ramp and parking area. These improvements will provide a safer launch opportunity for jet boats during high and low flows and provide float boaters with a safer location to unload and gear up their boats. Comments regarding this application to IDPR or inquiries regarding this project can be directed to Larry Vogel, North Zone Recreation Officer, at the North Fork Ranger District Office at (208) 865-2726 or e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
