Camping at C.J. Strike

We allow camping using tents or RVs in developed campgrounds or undeveloped areas near the reservoir. Stays are limited to 14 consecutive days.

Fees are collected for overnight camping. Obey all campground rules and keep motorized vehicles within the posted speed limit.


Day use in all parks remains free, however, a fee program is now in place for overnight camping.

Fees are consistent with fees charged at other campgrounds with similar services in the area. Fees are posted and collected at each park.

Idaho Power offers reduced camping fees to service-disabled veterans and campers over age 60. For veterans with any level of service-related disability, overnight camping fees are lowered by 50 percent. Seniors receive $2 off summer rates and $1 off winter rates.
