Old Sawmill Station is a perfect Base Camp from which to begin to explore large nearby Wilderness Areas.  To the south lie three new wilderness areas created in August 2015.  They are the Hemingway-Boulders, The White Cloud and the Jim-McClure-Jerry-Peak Wilderness Areas.  Old Sawmill Station is the closest full-service RV park on the north side of these three large new Wilderness areas.

The map graphic below shows the three new Wilderness Areas in proximity to Old Sawmill (shown by red arrow)

Here's a link to the Jerry Peak Wilderness:


The Frank Church lies to the north. At 2.367 million acres, it is the largest contiguous federally managed wilderness in the United States outside of Alaska. The area's protection actually began in 1931.  It was declared an official Wilderness area in 1980.  Even though "The Frank," as it is called lies much farther to the north, Old Sawmill Station remains one of the better Base Camp locations from which to begin to explore the southern portion of that vast Wilderness.
