Gravel sites are fairly spacious generally level and, in most cases deep enough for larger RVs. Power (30 amp) held up well however, the CG was lightly used while I was there. Nice visitors center detailing the history of the area. Of note, Idaho State Parks now offers WiFi for a fee -- $3.00 for 24 hours, $10.00 for a week.

Date of Stay:

The upper segment has 30 amp electric service as well as water spigots interspersed that one can use to fill fresh water tanks. During the shoulder season(s) the CG is fairly empty making for a very peaceful stay. I especially enjoy relaxing outside and enjoying the view and serenity.

Date of Stay:

While in general Cadillac Ranch is tidy and clean, the grounds have deteriorated since the change in ownership three years ago. The pond, which was clear and clean is now filled with cattails, the restrooms while clean could use some serious maintenance; chipping paint in the showers and the entry way could use some paint. Been stopping here for years and probably will return.

Date of Stay:

Friendly management, sites are a bit tight but workable. Park was full when we stayed there but the power was adequate (didn't drop below 114 volts). Due to the high occupancy at the park, WiFi became quite slow in the afternoon but was workable. Received a weak Verizon cell signal (1g) for voice and text only.

About the only game in town. Sites are pretty well separated, mostly level and, surprisingly have some shade. Utilities have been upgraded to include 50 amp service, which held up well. WiFi is quite good and work campers are really friendly.

Date of Stay:

Typical of the high desert Angel Lake RV Park has sparse vegatation, gravel access roads and pads. Sites are a bit close together but adequate, level a deep enough for big rigs. Quite a few long term residents but their sites are tidy and neat (a couple even put in lawns). Great water pressure, power held up well and utilities are well placed.

Date of Stay:

Stayed in the lower loop, Catfish Loop/B. First day was exciting as Cycle Oregon was using Farewell Bend as a staging area for 2,200 bicyclists. The Park staff handled that extremely well. Sites are generally level with fair to good separation. Nearly all are back in (two pull throughs) with water and 30 amp electric. Dump station is available when exiting.

Date of Stay:

Have stayed here numerous times and always enjoy. The park was completely full this time (weekend) but the electricity held up well. Water pressure was a bit low but worked fine. We stayed in the lower section this time and in a double site, cost was twice the 27.00 rate, but was worth it due to the crowd.

Date of Stay:

Sites are generally quite level, deep and moderately roomy. "River Front" and "Creek Side" sites are back-in while center sites are pull-through. Wi-Fi is through TengoInternet and is surprisingly good. Mostly longer term folks but sites are kept clean and tidy and the residents are quite friendly.

Great Forest Service CG located about 7 miles out of Trout Lake via SR 141 and FR 24 (paved all the way). Sites are generally well separated with dirt/gravel pads. Each site has a picnic table and fire ring. Water spigots are located throughout the campground. A dump station can be found at the city park in Trout Lake. Campground is generally open from mid May through mid September. CG is close to Goose Lake (about 6 miles) and Forlorn Lakes for those who like fishing. Note that Goose Lake allows electric boat motors and has a boat launch while Forlorn Lakes is muscle power only and no launch site. The campground doesn't experience heavy usage except during the huckleberry season and during the early part of the fishing season. It can, however, be busy during any weekend so reservations for a weekend might be advisable. Peterson Prairie is near the Ice Caves and Natural Bridges. Both were formed when Mount Adams last erupted and are worth checking out. If you decide to explore the Ice Cave, wear warm clothing and adequate foot gear -- it's cold and slippery down there!

Rate reflects the senior discount (1/2 price) available at certain Idaho State Parks Monday through Thursday. Regular rate is $23.32/night. Sites are large, well separated, with gravel pads, picnic tables and fire rings. Wi-Fi is available for a fee ranging from $3 for a day, $10 for a week or $29 for a "season" and is quite strong and fast. Note that the fee carries over to any Idaho State Park that has the Wi-Fi service. Near by is an Oregon Trail interpretive center/museum which is neat to visit. Several walking trails along the Snake River that are enjoyable and the Carmela Winery is adjacent to the park with Wine Tasting and a nice golf course. Have stayed before and will again!

Great Idaho State Park about 10 miles north of American Falls off I-86. Sites are generally level gravel pads with picnic tables and fire rings. The, sort of small, visitors center is worth a visit to learn a bit about the area. Also, a short drive to Register Rock affords you a sense of the trials of the early emigrants. Wi-Fi is available for charges ranging from $3 for one day, $10 for a week or $29 for a "season" and is usable at all Idaho Parks. We paid the $10 fee and found the Wi-Fi to be quite strong. Have stayed before and will again!

Great, small state park that is definitely off the beaten track (you gotta wanna get there). The upper section has 30 amp electric hookups while the lower section has no hook ups. Water spigots are interspersed throughout the park; in fact if the CG is empty and you have enough hose could hook up to one of the spigots. Sites are level and well separated, with; picnic tables, fire rings, and gravel pads. Several are ample in size to handle 40' rigs. There is a dump station. The view over Bear Lake is wonderful and the night skies are filled with stars.

Date of Stay:

Beautiful Forest Service CG above (about 7,000') Wells. Sites are gravel, sort of level, private with fire pits and picnic tables. There are a couple of sites that larger rigs can get into. The drive up from Wells is a good haul, some 8 to 10% grades, but well worth it. Be sure to drive up to Angel Lake (not in your RV) for some spectacular views and, if you enjoy fishing, the lake is home to both Rainbow and Cutthroat. The CG is a popular spot for locals and can get busy on weekends but is still quiet.

Have stayed here in the past and probably will again -- not by choice but by necessity, it's about the only game in town where you can get caught up on internet stuff. Sites are not particularly level, skinny and could be difficult for larger rigs to get into/out of. Managers/hosts are friendly and accommodating. Good spot to stay as a base for visiting Dinosaur Nat'l Monument or Flaming Gorge.
