an Idaho Power recreation facility.
situated on the shore of CJ Strike Reservoir. Cottonwood Park
Campground has been here for years, however they are in the
process of completing a
major up-grade and expansion. It is still gravel, sand and
boulder covered with quite a few cottonwood trees but has been expanded
with new tables, fire pits with grills and a new vault style toilet yet
to be installed. We took our pictures February, 2010, so you will
have to use your imagination and picture the cottonwood trees with
leaves. The primary attractions here are fishing, camping, bird
watching and water sports.
Fees: Summer rate of $8.00 per day and Winter rate of $4. This pricing is as of 2013. Idaho Power changes pricing often.
Up to 50% off during Winter Clearance at Backcountry. Plus, free shipping over $50.
Campground Reservations: Idaho Power does not provide for campground reservations, Cottonwood Park is on a first come first serve.
Fishing: Fishing is available from the shoreline, docks and boats for several species including bass, trout and crappie.
Boat Docks: The marina is greatly improved with new dock facilities and a 40 foot wide ramp. The only group shelter is located at the marina.
Swimming: There is no beach here, however, I am sure campers would find plenty of water to play in. Just watch out for the fishermen!
RV's: There is plenty of room for RV camping at this campground.
Cell phone reception: There is cell phone reception in this campground, but limited.
Telephone: There is no pay phone at this campground, however there is one at North Park Campground or Bruneau nearby.
Pets: Pets are welcome on a leash.
Restrooms: There is one vault style toilet with another planned to be complete before summer. We found the existing one to be clean and well maintained.
Drinking water: There is drinking water available.
Parking: There is extra parking available.
Garbage: Dumpster available.
Location: Cottonwood Park campground is located 24 miles south of Mountain Home. From I-84 take exit 95 at Mountain Home. Travel south on Hwy 51 for 21 miles to Bruneau. From Bruneau continue traveling west on Hwy 51 for about 2 miles. Take Hwy 78 right for about 2 or 3 miles to a gravel road on your right side. There is a sign for the campground marking the road. It is a good mile to Cottonwood Park campground and marina. Check out this GoogleMap.
Reviewed: February 2010/ revised pictures June 2011.
