About Little Soldier

Immediately below Little Soldier Rapid is Little Soldier Camp. Separating the two is Little Soldier Creek, which spills into the Middle Fork on the upstream side of the camp. At lower flows, this camp has a small but refreshing swimming hole, which is also a good fishing spot. During these flows, a gravel bar is exposed which makes for a good kitchen and chair area. Behind the camp is a shelf which is where the tent sites live. A short stroll downstream from camp is a large shelf with an impressive grove of ponderosa trees.
