Haigler Canyon Campground is dispersed and you must be self contained. Located next to the Hellsgate Wilderness.  Haigler Canyon is noted for its rainbow trout fishing and its proximity to trails for horseback riding. Haigler Creek flows through the campground and is stocked with rainbow trout from April through late August. There are nice swimming holes available in and around the campground to cool off during the summer months. There is one vault toilet equipped with grab bars. Some assistance may be required. After heavy rain, a four wheel drive vehicle isn't a must but is nice.

 

The Rim Visitors Information Center is located at the junction of the S. R. 260 and the Rim Road.
