  1. I can’t get Riley Creek to show up on reserve america so I can make a reservation? How can I view and make a reservation?

    • Hi Roberta,
      We fixed the ‘Make A Reservation’ button link on the Riley Creek Recreation Area Campground page. It will now route you to the correct agency that handles the reservations.

      • Craig Turner says:

        I would like to reserve around the July forth for 7 days but I’m confused has to how it works I tried the website but it would not let me reserve thank you Craig

      • Hi Craig,
        You can make reservations for Riley Creek Recreation Area through Recreation.gov (click on the ‘Make A Reservation Button’). The reservation window is on a rolling 6 month schedule. In other words, the first day you can make a reservation is 6 months prior to arrival at 7am PST. For example, on Sat, January 2nd 2021, availability will be released through Fri, July 2nd 2021 and/or for a July 2 arrival. Popular campgrounds over weekends/holidays will sell out within minutes. If there is not availability – it’s sold out. You can always use our Campsite Assist tool and sign up to get an alert (text or email) if/when a campsite becomes available through cancellation: https://www.campsitephotos.com/campsite-assist/

    Hi!….Thanks for this great site, it really helps seeing the nice campground photos..We are able to see the sites we would like to stay at without visiting..

  3. STEVEN DOWNEY says:

    When in September is the last weekend to reserve sites?

  4. Diana Taylor says:

    When do reservations open up for Summer 2020? Thank you.

    • Hi Diana,
      Riley Creek Recreation Area is on a 6 month rotating reservation window. In other words, you can first make reservations exactly six months to the day of arrival. For example, if you’re planning to arrive July 10th, then the first day you can make reservations is at 7AM (Pacific time) on January 10th (which is 6 months prior to the day of arrival). Hope this helps!

  5. unable to book a reservation, for a 7/18/20 it seems my password is incorrect.
    but won’t send me a conformation to my email to reset. Have tried several times.

    • Hi Crystal,
      I recommend you contact Recreation.gov directly as they process reservations for Riley Creek Recreation Area. Rec.gov’s number is 877-444-6777.

      • The phone # you provided is missing numbers ??

      • Hi Crystal,

        We double checked and the phone number we have listed for Riley Creek Recreation Area has all it’s numbers and reaches the ‘Albany Falls Dam’, which is the office responsible for Riley Creek Recreation Area/Campground. The number is: 208 437-3133

  6. I heard Reilly creek is closed for construction, is it adding sewer? I sure hope they don’t tare up the campground in the process.

  7. Doak Walker says:

    I was wondering how to reserve picnic shelter areas for my daughter’s birthday for day use? Thank you.

    • Hi Doak,
      You can click on the ‘Make A Reservation’ button to check availability, pricing and make a reservation for a group picnic shelter ($70 per day) at Riley Creek Recreation Area. The button/link will take you to Rec.gov (Riley Creek Recreation Area). Scroll down and click on page 7 of the results and you’ll see the group picnic shelter options.
