Cayuse Creek Airstrip

FAA Code: C64 Latitude: 46.6665842
Elevation: 3505 Longitude: -115.0731811

For many years, this airstrip was listed as "Restricted" on FAA charts, meaning planned landings could not be made without permission from the Forest Service. With encouragement from the Idaho Airstrip Network, that designation was removed in early 2011. The airstrip's turf surface is good by backcountry standards, although not regularly maintained. There are no camping facilities at the airstrip, but wilderness camping and good fishing are available along Cayuse Creek.
