Summer Recreation


The Ririe Reservoir is a popular local recreation area located in Bonneville County.  The Reservoir provides an opportunity for summer recreation such as boating, waterskiing, fishing and camping at the Juniper Campground.  Two parks provide the only public access to the Ririe Reservoir: Blacktail Park and the Juniper Campground. In addition, there are two boat-access only parks:  Benchland Park and Willow Point Park, located on the reservoir between Juniper Campground and Blacktail Park.  Both provide shelters, picnic tables, fire rings and a grassy area, and are a pleasant place to stop and picnic, enjoy the water, take a boating break or stay overnight.  No reservations are required for overnight camping.  If you pack it in, you MUST PACK IT OUT.  Please help keep it neat and clean, free of trash so that everyone can enjoy these wonderful parks!
