HORSEBACK RIDING, FAMILY ADVENTURES
All on the largest tributary of the Middle Fork of the Salmon River: BIG CREEK.
We love “Fish Camp”and we want to SHARE it with you!
When the Zettel boys were very small, my wife and I, and friends, spent a lot of time at Fish Camp. We had a crew take care of our Middle Fork trips while the Zettels would host countless guests at the Big Creek camp we call lovingly, “Fish Camp.”
Prior to the fire of 2000 our camp was located on a State Land lease about a ten minute walk from Big Creek. This site lost all of its charm in the fire. So we went searching for a new location for our fishing camp. The result was “Fish Camp“, maybe the most perfect setting for a wilderness, fly in, horseback, fishing camp.
Fish Camp is likely to be the most remote location in the lower 48, located in the heart of the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness area. Complete with mature shade trees, nearby swimming hole and mud wrestling pit for the young and the young at heart. You will enjoy sandy beaches, endless miles of hiking and horseback riding trails, whether along Big Creek or high into the surrounding mountains. The camp is equipped with roomy wall tents, cots, wood stoves, lanterns, a complete cook tent with room for indoor dining if necessary.
Most everything we do at Fish Camp is outside.
Enjoy traditional breakfasts and dinners under blue skies, camp time and campfires in comfortable chairs.
Did I mention “We love “Fish Camp”?
With a name like “Fish Camp” one can only assume that there is wilderness fishing to be done. You would have assumed correctly. Fishing is not only fantastic, it is also just a 2 minute stroll away.
