C.J. Strike Overnight Camping Fees
Idaho Power's wooden bridge below C.J. Strike Dam will be closed Monday, April 21, until Thursday, July 31, for major renovation. The bridge will not be open at night.
The bridge is between Idaho Power’s North Park, and Scout and Locust Parks near the dam.
A fee program has been implemented for C.J. Strike parks: North Park, Scout Park, Locust Park, and Cottonwood Park. Day use in all parks remains free. Improvements have been made at these campgrounds including new designated campsites and spurs, parking, roadways, picnic tables, fire rings, restroom improvements, a fish cleaning station, enhanced boat launching facilities and interpretation/educational exhibits.
The fees are in line with fees charged at the other campgrounds within the general area with consideration to the benefits and services provided to the visitor. Camping fees are posted at North Park, Scout Park, Locust Park, and Cottonwood Park and collection is done at a self-service pay station at each park.
Idaho Power offers discounted camping fees to service-disabled veterans and campers over 60. For veterans with any level of service-related disability, overnight camping fees are reduced by 50 percent. Seniors receive $2 off summer rates and $1 off winter rates.
Recreation facilities at C.J. Strike have been developed and furnished by Idaho Power as a public service. All facilities are open to the public without discrimination and are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Reservations are not accepted.
Water in the camping areas is shut off when winter rates are in effect. Restroom buildings at North and Scout Parks have water year-round.
There are no sewer hookups at individual camping spaces, but there are two RV dump stations available (1) near the Power Plant and (2) at the C.J. Wildlife Management Headquarters. The RV dump stations are closed during the winter season.
