The Palisade Reservoir was amazing to drive past, and I would have preferred to camp there, but it was BUSY and crowded...NOT my thing. This place is pretty, no big views though, and right off the Snake River. The turn in is sharp, but easy and access to these sites is great for all sizes and types of rigs. The road in is smooth, and the roads and ground are covered in smooth river rock of various sizes. Tons of campsites, some right on the river, some in the open and quite a few in the trees. It is definitely used for OHV, but everyone has been very respectful of space and noise. I would suggest getting your spot by early Thursday for the best choices, as it does get very busy on the weekend. The downsides are the ants that seem to have been in every site I looked at, including the one I finally settled in, and there is a small amount of traffic noise.

Plenty of forest land just below the dam and behind Riverside CG, just across Snake River. The area is frequented by ATVs an motorcycles due to the trails that run through the area, so pick your spot according. Beautiful sunsets and stars every night. Verizon service was pretty good; around 10-15M, so no problem working or streaming tv. Wife has T-Mobile and her service was decent as long as she didnt move around too much once she got it. Definitely wouldn’t rely on it for working without a booster. Stayed in our 39’ fifth wheel with mo issues. Some areas are too hilly for bigger rigs, but some smaller units will be able to cozy right up to the Snake River!

Safe travels.
