Riley Creek Campground, ID

Landed again—this time at an Army Corps of Engineers Campground in Idaho. We started the morning knowing the general direction we were headed but had no idea where we would end up. We got fortunate as only three campsites were left out of the 67 total. First water & electric hookups in five weeks. What a luxury! Since leaving NM, we have been dry camping (water nearby & running the generator) at Forest Service campgrounds. — Riley Creek Campground.
