The airstrip is on a bluff above the South Fork of the Salmon River. There are no camping amenities. The more user-friendly Reed Ranch Airstrip is located just a few miles upstream.

Airstrip Classification: DEVELOPED

Airstrips have basic navigational aids and some additional services such as restrooms or camping facilities. May have road access to nearby attractions. Typically located in areas of high use, often in remote settings, but may be accessed by improved roads.
Maintenance: Clear hazardous vegetation from approaches, remove obstacles, blade, mow, water, treat invasive and noxious weeds, and make spot improvements regularly to maintain improved airstrip surface.
