A large campground geared toward boating with a great location right on the reservoir. Not a lot of shade trees but a beautiful high desert setting.
Campground was clean and well maintained. Unfortunately we went on the hottest day of the year and got cooked. The car said it was 111F! No real trees to speak of for shade so we spent the entire day in the water. It cooled off at night but got a bit gusty.
We had to cut our trip a day early but hope to go back under better circumstances!
We camped just outside of Cottonwood Campground. There is an access road to the West that follows the shoreline. Beautiful area and it was great to camp right on the water. The fishing was also good with lots of smallmouth in the lake. Be sure to watch out for the ticks though!
Spacious campsites that have good buffers in between sites. Camped right on the reservoir. Quiet and peaceful. Definitely will come here again.
Clean, roomy, campground with boat launches and docks. On the Snake. Windy at twighlight but an awesome place and cheap!
I've been to this Cottonwood Campground at CJ Strike quite a few times now. It is $8/night during the summer and $4/night in the winters. Each site has a firepit and picnic table. I like some of the sites at the Cottonwood site because they are very close to a boat ramp. If you have a smaller boat, depending on the site you have, you can launch a small boat from your campground! Great fishing, spring through fall. In the winter this area freezes over. All in all, a great campsite with great fishing!
