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.

Facilities

This primitive campground offers waterfront sites with direct shoreline access. Vault toilets and drinking water are provided, but there is no electricity. Roads and parking spurs within the site are dirt.
