Overview: Riverside Campground is located along the Deadwood River at the north end of scenic Deadwood Reservoir at an elevation of 5,300 feet. Boating, fishing and hiking are popular activities. Natural Features: The campground is situated in a mixed-growth pine forest, which offers plentiful shade. Summer wildflowers are abundant. The entire campground affords views of the river. Recreation: Because of its remote location, Deadwood Reservoir is quiet and unpopulated, making for great fishing for Atlantic, Chinook and Kokanee salmon, and rainbow and cutthroat trout. Boating, water skiing, canoeing and kayaking are popular on the lake. The primary developed boat ramp is located approximately 7 miles away at Cozy Cove Campground. Many trails for hiking, mountain biking, horseback and off-road vehicle riding are in the area. )
Stanley is always beautiful. This dispersed camping area was right on par. Quiet spacious and on the salmon river. Happened to catch a huge bull trout and a even bigger chinook salmon while swinging for trout. No facilities other than fire rings. We've stayed here twice!
