| Morgan Creek Recreation Site Review
Creek Recreation Site is on Morgan Creek almost due north of Challis,
Idaho. The campground is on Morgan Creek where the flat land along
is covered with willows. The hills around are covered with sage brush,
and the higher mountains are heavily forested. The summer days could be
hot with no shade and the mosquitoes are thick and very hungry. Morgan
Creek Road before Morgan Creek Recreation Site followed the creek and
was deep in a rocky canyon. West Fork Road also follows a deep rocky
canyon. I imagine this would be excellent hunting country.

Handicap Accessible: The outhouse is handicap accessible.

Pets: Yes, but should be leashed.
Fishing: Morgan Creek is small, but with the number of mosquitoes here, the trout must be huge!
Recreation:This is a very rocky, dry area so I would imagine rock hounds might enjoy looking for rocks. You could ride your ATVs, bikes, or horses in the hills around here. I would enjoy photographing the rock formations. I am sure hunters would find game nearby.
Picnic Area: Feel free to use the Site as a picnic site since there is no fee.
Wildlife: Mosquitoes! Ha! We saw nothing except birds, however, I would expect to see deer here regularly.

Nearby Services: Challis, Idaho, is your location for supplies like candy, pop, water and gas.
Location/Driving instructions: From Challis, Idaho, take Hwy 93 north 8.2 miles to a left turn onto Morgan Creek Road. Follow Morgan Creek Road 5.1 miles northwest to Morgan Creek Recreation Site which will be on your left.
