Name: CJ Strike Area Campgrounds

CJ Strike Dam and Reservoir support many recreational opportunities. If you are looking for camping at CJ Strike Reservoir, there are five campgrounds, the Bruneau Dunes State Park and various Sportsman Access sites. Activities include fishing, boating, camping, swimming, water skiing, horseback riding, hiking and wildlife viewing. Nestled in the Snake River Valley with a view of the Owyhee Mountains, the area is covered with sagebrush and tumbleweeds but holds a unique beauty that has made many an Idahoan a fan. North Park, Scout Park, Locust Park and Cottonwood Park are Idaho Power Company facilities and are not reservable.

CJ Strike Reservoir and the area campgrounds are located 21 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 6 miles, turn right on Black Sands road to CJ Strike Dam with North Park (IPC), Scout Park (IPC) and Locust Park (IPC) campgrounds. Cottonwood Park (IPC) and Cove Recreation Site (BLM) are located on the south shore of CJ Strike Reservoir about 3 to 5 miles from Bruneau, you would pass them to reach CJ Strike Dam. Bruneau Dunes State Park is also included in this area. To find it you will turn south on Hwy 78 about 2 miles before reaching Bruneau. The park is on the right 1 or 2 miles down Hwy 78. Watch for the sign. Note: Black Sands Resort is a privately owned resort and is not part of our reviews at this time.

Hey, we just spent a couple days at CJ Strike Dam, at the campsite just below the dam.  Great place, perhaps the best place I've camped at all summer.  The Idaho Power personnel we met were very friendly and the campgrounds were kept up very well.  We were in tents, thanks for holding off sprinkling the area until we picked up to leave.
