Indian Creek Airstrip

FAA Code: S81 Latitude: 44.7611389
Elevation: 4718 Longitude: -115.1073611

This is one of Idaho's busiest airstrips, especially when flows in the Middle Fork are low, forcing white water rafting trips to start here. There are a few tie downs, potable water outside the Forest Service guard station, and a solar-powered outhouse near the boat ramp. There are several good wilderness camp sites between the airstrip and the river, but no amenities.
