O'Hara Campground sits along the Selway River amid lush vegetation and old cedar trees. This is the largest campground on the Selway, with 32 sites, and makes a great base for exploring all the recreational activities and attractions in the area.
The campground offers single-family sites, many of which are accessible. Each site is equipped with a picnic table, campfire ring and paved parking spur. Vault toilets, drinking water and bear-resistant dumpsters are provided.
Hazard Tree removal in Ohara Campground is scheduled for the spring of 2021 and the site will be closed until the trees are on the ground. It is the Forest's intent to have the campground open starting May 14. We appreciate visitors' patience as we work to make this site safe and clean up after the hazard trees are removed!
An additional $2 for each non-towed vehicle will be collected at the campground. Check in time is 2:00pm and check out is 2:00pm
