Palisades Reservoir In Idaho

Palisades Reservoir, Idaho

Boating, camping and fishing.

Nestled in a beautiful mountain setting, Palisades Reservoir is a paradise both for boating and fishing. At an elevation 5,600 feet above sea level, this 16,000-acre lake provides excellent boating in summer and great fishing opportunities year round. This gem is located in the southeast part of the state, on the Wyoming-Idaho border, 5 miles southeast of Irwin, ID. 70 miles of shoreline provide plenty of places to wet a line, from shore or from a boat. The boat launches serve pleasure and fishing boats with no HP restrictions. Several campgrounds and RV parks are available during the season. Ice fishing in winter, fishing from a boat in summer and bank fishing the remainder of the year makes this an ideal trout fishing destination.
