Hower's Campground

  

Howers Campground

Howers Campground is located on the northeast shore of the scenic Deadwood Reservoir in western Idaho. Boating, fishing and hiking are popular activities in this remote area.

Natural Features:

The campground is situated in a mixed-growth pine forest, offering plenty of shade. Summer wildflowers are abundant, and the campground affords sweeping views of the reservoir.

Recreation:

Because of its remote location, Deadwood Reservoir is quiet and unpopulated, making for great fishing for Atlantic, Chinook and Kokanee salmon, as well as rainbow and cutthroat trout.

Boating, water skiing, canoeing and kayaking are popular on the lake, and a boat ramp is located about two miles away at Cozy Cove Campground.

Several trails for hiking, mountain biking, horseback and off-road vehicle riding wind around the lake shore and surrounding landscape.
