Morgan Bar Recreation Site

NEW! Closed to all motorized vehicles and human entry starting December 9, 2013, due to flooding and hazardous river conditions. The BLM will open the access to the public once the water level recedes and conditions improve. For more information, please contact BLM Salmon Field Office Manager Linda Price at 208-756-5410.

The Morgan Bar Recreation Site is a medium-sized campground with group facilities and a boat ramp. The site is adjacent to the Salmon river with a magnificent eastern view of the Beaverhead Mountains. The site was formally the homestead of the Morgan family and still has a remnant orchard. A trail winds around a wetland pond and along almost a mile of the Salmon River's west bank.

Directions: Located about 7 miles north of Salmon, Idaho. 
Take Highway 93 north from Salmon, Idaho. Turn left at the Lemhi County Fairgrounds and follow the signs about 1½ miles down the river (north). The site is on the right on the Salmon River.
