Annual Campout


   We are having our annual, "End-of-the-year R&R" non-radio campout at the Cottonwood Campground at CJ Strike reservoir. This campground is maintained by Idaho Power and, because of it's popularity, is now a reservation only campground. If you are going to stay over night be sure you have a space to camp out at. We will have a potluck dinner Saturday night and watch the BSU football game during and after dinner. The game starts at 5:00 PM, earlier than in the past several years so we will be eating and watching at the same time. There will also be several "bonus" meals provided by our master cast iron cooks during the weekend. What will they be?

You will just have to show up to find out!



The date for the campout is Sept. 29 - 30 but most of us will be going down to Cottonwood earlier.  Prices are minimal: $8.00 per night. $6.00 per night for seniors. $4.00 per night for any disabled veterans. This is the best camping value in Idaho. Take advantage of it!
