Overview

Overview

Johnson Bar Group Site is situated in a large, open field along the Selway River. The site is perfect for gatherings of up to 100 people, with room for tents and RVs. The site offers access to many recreational activities and sightseeing opportunities.

Natural Features:

In the heart of north central Idaho, rugged peaks, deep canyons, dense forests and remote wilderness comprise the Nez Perce National Forest. Due in large part to dramatic elevational differences, the forest supports a wide variety of vegetation, from cedar groves to desert ecosystems.

Johnson Bar is located in the Selway River Corridor, an area known for its rugged natural beauty and wildlife.

Recreation:

The Selway River is a destination fly fishing experience for cutthroat and rainbow trout and is also well-known for whitewater rafting. Several trailheads for hiking and biking are accessible from Selway River Road and lead into the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness area. Johnson Bar offers beach and boating access.

Facilities:

The accessible group site can accommodate a maximum of 100 people. It is equipped with a campfire circle, two smaller campfire rings, picnic tables, drinking water and RV pads. Vault toilets adjacent to the site, and groups of 25 or more are required to rent 1-3 portable toilets.

Individual campsites are located on either side of the group site on a first-come, first served basis.

Nearby Attractions:

A 42-mile sightseeing drive from Lowell to Selway Falls offers visitors opportunities to appreciate the pristine beauty of the Selway Wild and Scenic River and picturesque Selway Falls.

Johnson Bar is near the Fenn Ranger Station, which is on the National Register of Historic Places.

The nearby town of Lowell offers groceries and supplies.
