Wildwood Recreation Site is 600 acres of beautiful forest land. It is a day-use only site. There is no overnight camping. It includes a Family Picnic Area nestled in a bend of the Wild and Scenic Salmon River. It has 47 picnic units separated by dense vegetation offering privacy to its users and access to the Salmon River.
