Mill Falls is a great place for families looking for a shady place to camp adjacent to a lovely waterfall. The drive into the South Fork Teton Canyon shows you a diverse display of changing vegetation and geological features. You leave the treeless prairie and pass below huge cliffs of the Sawtooth Range rising on both sides. Use binoculars to try to spot mountain goats clinging to these sheer faces. When you reach Mill Falls Campground you’re at the doorstep of the Bob Marshall Wilderness with splendid peaks looming before you. The short walk to Mill Falls passes through dense timber to a hidden cliff outcropping where the small creek makes a vertical drop into shimmering pools.
