Chamberlain Basin Airstrip

FAA Code: U79 Latitude: 45.3790783
Elevation: 5765 Longitude: -115.1967797

Once one of Idaho's most popular airstrips, Chamberlain lost that status after camping amenities were removed and several major fires ravaged the area. The Forest Service still is trying to find a solution to the drainage problem at the intersection of the two runways. Wilderness camping is available at several sites adjacent to the main runway.
