Baumgartner ID (status since fire?)

Does anyone have any local intel on the status of the Baumgartner campground and riding area in the Sawtooths since the fire last summer?

The campground reservation site indicates reservations are not accepted still due to last year's fire. Is the Hot Springs (pool) still operational? Are the primitive campsites just outside of the campground still accessible and did they burn or are there still decent campsites and access to the trails available in the area.

Thanks

I came thru there yesterday. All camping is closed on the south side of the river and the pool is drained and closed.I think all the trails on the south side are also closed, but I didn't see closure signs on Jumbo, Skeleton, Conant, etc.Call the Boise Forest Service to see when it's going to open.

Thanks for the info. I called the Ranger District and they confirmed the campground is closed as well as the hot springs pool, but the Kelly Flats primitive camping area adjacent to the campground is open.

She did point me to a good map on their website that shows the closure:

She said they hoped to have Trail 050 (Kelley Trail on the south side) open in the next 1-2 days and that trail does go through the middle of the burn area.

There's an exceptional amount of good riding all through that area - even around the fire area.

As for Hot Springs, there are the Warswick Hot Springs, elk campground Hot Springs and the Hot Springs on the Ketchum side of Dollarhide to soak in if that is your thing.
