“A little sun, wind and cold and very few people.”

When I arrived there was only on other person using the campground. There boat ramp had a few other vehicles. The campsites are fairly large. There are a few group spaces as well. There were fire pits and tables at each site.

I did not see a dump station anywhere on site. There was a dump station at the Cove Campground, which is just down the road a short distance away to the west. The water had been turned off for the winter. There was potable water at the CJ Strike management office, a short distance away to the east.

Law enforcement drove thru a few times while I was there. There were no hook ups and the vault toilets were clean.

Mountain Home is the closet town with a variety of grocery stores and hardware stores.

The summer rates are $8 per night (April - October) and $4 for the winter rates (November - March).

Unfortunately the weather did not cooperate and cannot leave a fishing report.

Dry camping on gravel spots next to the C J Strike Reservoir that apparently has great fishing. 2 pit toilets and randomly placed potable water you can use to refill your tanks. No dump station. Plenty of spots to handle large rv's. Ours is 40' plus toad and we had no problems. Picnic tables and firepits and every spot. Camphost on site but you use fee station to pay. Approximately 2 miles down a well maintained gravel road (Cottonwood Rd) off hwy 78 to get to campground. There's a free dumpstation at 42874 Hwy 78 (CJStrike Wildlife Management Area) with rinse and potable water. It's not far from the campground. Also free camping along reservoir off hwy 78 just east of the Cottonwood campground (14day limit) we didn't get info on that but drove thru. Seemed decent. Good spots, good road in. A few potholes.
