McFarland Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"McFarland is in an open meadow in the ranching country, and there’s privately owned land in most directions here (as campground signs duly note). As at several BLM campgrounds in this area, camping is organized around a circle, with the few campground services (toilets) in the middle of the circle.
The sites are on the banks of the Lemhi River, and the whole area is ringed with trees and shrubs, providing some seclusion from neighboring properties, though little from the highway. Some fishing opportunities are available but are limited; check the signs in the campground to determine where you can and can’t go. (Some nearby fishing spots are on private property.) This is a good campground for overnighting en route on a journey, but it’s not much of a recreation spot."
