The South Fork John Day River is a convert|54|mi|km|adj=on tributary of the John Day River in the U.S. state of Oregon. It begins in the Malheur National Forest in Harney County about convert|25|mi|km north-northwest of Burns and flows generally north to Dayville, where it meets the main stem of the John Day River. Along the way, the stream passes through the abandoned town of Izee. Black Canyon Wilderness in the Ochoco National Forest lies within the river's drainage basin.cite map |publisher = DeLorme Mapping |title = Oregon Atlas & Gazetteer |edition = 1991 | section = 71, 77]

The upper convert|47|mi|km of the river, from the headwaters to the confluence with Smoky Creek, about convert|6.5|mi|km from the mouth, are included in the National Wild and Scenic River (NWSR) system. The NWSR classifies all but the stretch below Smoky Creek as recreational, with places for hiking, swimming, camping, hunting, and fishing.
