Boise National Forest


River Side 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.


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. A boat ramp is located about 2 miles away at Cozy Cove Campground. Many trails for hiking, mountain biking, horseback and off-road vehicle riding are in the area.


This primitive campground offers waterfront sites with direct river access. A vault toilet is located up a hill above the campground. Drinking water is provided. Roads and parking spurs within the site are dirt.

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.

Fee Info

There is a $5 fee for vehicles entering the campground for day use.

Great waterfront sites

We stayed in site #5 with a 30’ trailer, there was plenty of room for my truck and trailer in this site. The other sites would be tight with a trailer this size. We had great waterfront access, there is no real beach and the slope into the water is steep. My kids are older so it was not a problem. We only stayed one night as some real pieces of work (being polite) moved in and ran us and another family out. I would go back.

Awesome and close enough to the city

This place is such a fun weekend getaway, it's far enough to get some peace and quiet, yet it is also close enough to where you can be in the mountains with a short drive
