The South Fork of the Boise River is one of the most famous stretches of river in Southwest Idaho. It’s located between Anderson Ranch Dam and Danskin Bridge and boasts a stable population of rainbow trout, whitefish, and bull trout. There are no fees to camp along the dispersed sites, and all spaces are first-come, first-served.
