Moose Creek USFS Airport Airstrip
Moose Creek is one of the Forest Service's best-maintained airstrips, located at the confluence of Moose Creek and the Selway River in the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness. In 2010, with the help of IAA volunteers, the Ranger District moved the recommended camping area from the west side of runway 01/19, where large, diseased trees pose a safety hazard, to the south end between the intersecting runways. The large wooden picnic tables were removed. Portable tables and firepans are available at the Ranger Station. Potable water also is available at the Ranger Station. Fishing usually is good in both Moose Creek and the Selway. No tie downs, no winter maintenance.

Observation Date: March 20, 2020
Stopped at Moose Cr. briefly on way out of Shearer on 3/20 with helicopter. Snow has mostly melted off right to edge of short runway 04/22. Surface appeared damp and most likely soft in places but no water or obvious mud. Long runway 01/19, which is closed, also had snow melted off most but not all of landing surface. That runway was showing some tracks and rutting on and adjacent to landing area so perhaps some inappropriate use taking place there this spring or last fall.
