Anderson Mill Canyon Road runs along the top of the hills east of Ashton, ID. However, most of it is a small valley (not exactly what I'd call a "canyon") along the hilltop. I ended up at the south end where it opens out and had good propagation and decent horizon from there. I parked a half mile from a closed gate further on.

Pictures show the turn-off from Hwy 26. The best VHF spot would be on the first spot inside the park but it was occupied by a large RV trailer when I visited. This spot has the best horizon but is also very exposed to public traffic.

There was frequent ATV and dirt bike traffic.

Here's a great campground in the Targhee National Forest that's clean, quiet, and full of nature along a lovely mountain stream. They take reservations for the nicest spots (Loop A and B) and also have a large section of first-come-first-served (Loop C).

Driving directions:

  • From Idaho Falls, go north on Hwy 20 north for 66 miles.
  • Look for Riverside Campground sign on the right (east) side.
