Nice city owned park with boat ramp, playgrounds, volleyball, horseshoe courts, frisbee golf, and picnic areas. Nearly all sites are right on the lake, fairly level, with electric hook-ups and not a lot of shade. Water spigots are near the two shelter houses and the dump station is just outside the park along US 73. (Dump station is not big rig friendly.) Restrooms/showers are very basic and could be cleaner. Verizon air card worked well and we were able to use our satellite: absolutely no TV via antenna. Camping rate is $6/night plus $6 for electricity. There are many seasonal campers here because the rate for the season is $135, but we pretty much had the place to ourselves during the week. Caretaker is very friendly. We will stay here again while visiting family in the area.

Rate reflects Good Sam discount. Nice small park very close to I-10 so road noise present. Interior roads are quite rough and sites are narrow. Each site has a concrete pad with table. Laundry room and restrooms/showers were very nice and clean. Verizon air card and cell service were excellent. We would stay here again on our way through.

This park could be very nice if somebody cared about it. The full hook-up sites were gravel and seemed OK, but the water/electric sites were grass and difficult to figure out. The hook-ups were on the wrong side of the site and the trees needed a good trimming. Tent sites were nice: overlooking the river. The restrooms were dirty and there was only one other camper here. We self-registered and never saw an owner or camp host. The cable TV was minimal: less than 12 channels. Our Verizon air card worked well, but we had no AT&T cell service. The location was great: just off the Avenue of the Giants and close to the Drive Through Tree Shrine. The Groves restaurant and winery in Myers Flat was very good. Price reflects winter rates with AAA discount. Price is the only reason we might stay here again.

Very peaceful, quiet park with very friendly, helpful hosts. Only Loop B was open at this time of year so just a few sites with electric hook-ups (30 amp)were available. Sites are long and level with a picnic table and fire ring. The one we chose was deeply shaded so we needed lights on inside most of the time. Restrooms were very clean but small. No showers or dump station. Our Verizon mifi worked well but we had no reliable AT&T cell service in the campground. Florence is a few miles up the road for just about anything you need. The price listed is with the Interagency Access Pass. We would stay here again next time through the area.

Lovely county park with plenty of moss-covered trees and level sites with table and fire ring. It was very quiet this time of year and we even found a coupon on their website that gave us our third night free. We had good cell and Verizon mifi service but no TV reception. We didn't try the satellite because of the trees. The restrooms and showers were clean and there was plenty of hot water. The sites are rather close together so it might feel crowded when busy. Also, only one dump station for both loops might cause congestion. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay here again.

This nice little park has friendly new owners who are in the process of upgrading facilities. It was flooded in June so some of their projects, such as new gravel for sites, had to be postponed. The water system is new and the restrooms/showers are freshly remodeled and immaculate. Sites are good size with a few long pull-throughs so we didn't have to disconnect our toad. Close to I-90 and railroad tracks so some noise issues. But the beautiful mountain views and the adjacent Clark Fork River help make up for it. Verizon air card, DirectTV and ATT cell service were good. We would stay here again.

A very nice, quiet county park with level pull-through sites. Electric and water hook-ups at site with an easily accessible dump station nearby. Managers live on-site and takes excellent care of the park which is used for picnics, disc golf, and occasional weddings by locals as well as visiting campers. We stayed in the area to visit friends and also used it as a base for day trips to Craters of the Moon and Grand Teton National Park. Shelley is a nice small town with a good grocery store and several restaurants and Idaho Falls is only 7 miles up the road for more extensive shopping, dining, movie theaters, etc. We would definitely stay here again.

Very nice parrish campground. Sites are large, paved and well-shaded. There are some pull-through sites and some sites with sewer as well as electric and water. There were no sewer sites available when we got here but the dump station is conveniently situated along the road on the way out of the campground. Plenty of family-friendly activities available. Watch carefully for signs along the road. The road forks near the campground: be sure to keep to the right. We would definitely stay here again.

Very quiet, peaceful RV park with friendly owners. There are no trees, therefore no shade, but there was a nice breeze blowing most of the time. We prefer to use our own facilities so the lack of restrooms/showers was not a problem for us. Most of the campgrounds in this area have a lot of trees with very tight maneuvering. This park is truly big rig friendly.

We had a beautiful lake-side site with plenty of room to spread out. Large level sites, paved roads, fire rings and very nice rest room facilities. There are no water or sewer hook-ups but the dump stations were easy to access and there were water spigots throughout the park. We stayed on a special weekend so did not have to pay the day-use fee in addition to the campsite cost. Local TV was available via antenna and our Verizon air card worked well.
