Josephus Lake Campground


Three campsites on Josephus Lake, near the border of the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness. Sites include picnic tables and fire rings; campground also includes a vault toilet. Hiking trail from campground heads west into the wilderness, branching out through a lake-filled region before reaching the Wild and Scenic Middle Fork of the Salmon River. The lake is too small for motorboats.
