Right on the reservoir

Great camp ground for water sports.  All sites near the water.  Not much shade in the heat of the summer and the campsites are fairly close together.

Really nice

This was a nice campground but was $10 even to dry camp in the off season and crowded. Did not have hook up either or ilI would have given a higher rating. This campground does offer awesome hiking, but there was a lot of garbage on trails.

Idaho Power Campground

We camped at the Idaho Power campground- the bugs were horrible-apparently they do not spray. No hookups. We were not impressed. Cost an extra $10.00 to reserve a spot on line.

  • Beautiful sunset
  • Our camp spot
  • Enjoying the moment
