Morgan Creek Recreation Site

This campground (4 primitive campsites) along scenic Morgan Creek offers a diverse terrain that creates an excellent songbird habitat. Sparrows, thrashers and wrens flit in the sagebrush, and juncos, kinglets and nutcrackers shelter in the forest. Big game in the area includes bighorn sheep, pronghorn antelope and mule deer. Visitors can also continue along Morgan Creek Road to reach the trailhead, which accesses the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness. Restroom and drinking water available. There are no electric hook-ups. This site has limited cell service.
