About River Side (Id - Boise)

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.

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. 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.

Facilities

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.

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
