Remember your OUTDOOR ETHICS when enjoying your public lands. Please RECREATE RESPONSIBLY.


Lud Drexler Park is located on the north end of Salmon Falls Creek Reservoir near the Idaho/Nevada border, about 36 miles south of Twin Falls, Idaho. The reservoir was created in 1910 to provide irrigation water to nearly 25,000 acres of farmland. The recreation site was developed in 1974 in response to increased use of the reservoir. The recreation site is a cooperative effort by local sportsmen, Twin Falls County, Salmon River Canal Company and the BLM. In 1981, it was renamed in honor of Lud Drexler, a local sportsman who contributed significantly to developing the site.

Know Before You Go

Lud Drexler Park offers 20 developed campsites with shade cabanas, fire rings, and picnic tables, irrigated landscaping and vault toilets. The Park also offers reservoir shore access, a boat ramp, maintained road access and dispersed camping sites. Potable water and a RV dump are available on site. The reservoir is popular for boating, fishing and camping. Anglers find trout, smallmouth bass, yellow perch, and walleye throughout the year. During the fall season, the campground is a popular place to stay for hunters due to abundant game found near the reservoir.
