Morgan Bar Recreation Site

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.
