A few reservations would be nice. Knowing that a handicapped space is available before arriving, or that a non handicapped RV is in that space. I love Strike, usually quiet, lots of shade, lots of nice people.

I love CJ Strike North Park Camping Ground. Being from South Africa was wonderful to go camping and fishing in a beautiful, quiet, safe and very clean  and well maintained environment. Always good fishing, plenty of shade, clean bathrooms and I love being able to take my dogs with me. Would recommend this camp ground to anyone just wanting to drive an hour from Nampa and having a midweek break away from home or just a day trip for some good fishing. Remember to take a kayak with you, great way to relax and will get a bite most of the day. Can’t wait to go back there
