Johnson Creek is the primary access road into the Manti-La Sal National Forest and the Bears Ears National Monument from the Blanding area. A portion of this road is paved, but the entire route is included as a convenience to those heading into this beautiful area of Utah. Johnson Creek becomes FR 285 once inside the Manti-La Sal National Forest. There are numerous dispersed campsites inside the National Forest Boundary. Nizhoni Campground has 28 individual campsites and two group sites with all the amenities you'd expect from a good campground. Johnson Creek passes Dry Wash Reservoir shortly before ending at the Indian Creek and Causeway intersection.
