Hero: Deadwood Reservoir South
small-sr Icon

The southern entrance to Deadwood Reservoir runs through the Boise National Forest on Scott Mountain Road, NFSR 555, a graded dirt road that any high-clearance 2WD can handle. The trail has scenic forest views that occasionally open up, providing glimpses of the rugged Sawtooth Mountain Range in the distance to the east. 

Deadwood Reservoir is a medium size lake with lush trees and mountains surrounding it. There are campgrounds on the south, east, and north sides. Cozy Cove Campground is on the south side of the reservoir and has amazing spots right on the water.
