Pretty interesting RV park. It is more of a resort and has a golf course, river access, camping areas and is close to a small ski resort. Grass is great, water pressure was very low, power was reliable and the site was level. It is well removed from noise and there are very few lights so star gazing is great. It is a drive to even the smallest of grocery stores so stock up before you get there. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This campground was strange; spread out over close to a mile along a highway. The surroundings are spectacular, but the sites and the campground itself is very unimpressive. There were few services and the bathrooms were not cleaned often. There are a number of other nearby (within ½ mile) RV parks and I would consider checking those out carefully before staying here. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
This was kind of a mixed bag. They have several areas where RV's are parked. Our site was fine and next to a bunch of seasonal campers and that was fine. Anther area looked like a gravel parking lot. Their Wi-Fi was the most aggravating I've used; strong signal and speed one minute and the next minute disconnected. We stopped to use the hot spring pool but, after seeing how dirty it was, we did not use it. They do have great pizza and huckleberry ice cream at their restaurant. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We really liked this resort. Reminded us of a day gone by. Beautiful area...super nice people. Pizza parlor, golf course, pool, river...lots of grassy areas. Limited full hook-up sites for RVs and even those were a sort of tough to get into. That being said, it was a wonderful stay and we would definitely go back again~~ We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Decided to stay here as we saw they had a hot springs pool. But they have so much more. We 'camped' in their 12 space 'golf course' field lot, across the road from their little 9 hole golf course. 30 amp/water/sewer. Short walk takes you to their restaurant/pizza parlor; the 1st tee on the golf course (only $9.50 to play). The 'cool' pool is 75 degrees or so with large waterslide. The 'hot springs' pool and hot tub was 92 and 105 degrees, respectively. Absolutely wonderful for relaxing. Note that water activities were an extra fee, but reasonable. All day pass or one time use available. Verizon cell/air card good, minimal AT&T service. We did get Direct TV through a hole in the trees. Relatively large complex with many permanent residents, but they are located far from the overnight area. Small convenience store. Propane. Hard to find with GPS: call for exact directions. A wonderful find. Definitely would come back if in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We camped here in a 40' motorhome on site C4. This is the newer section of the three sections of park. The interior roads and site pads are all asphalt and interior roads were easy to navigate. The site pad we were on (C4) was a large pull thru with plenty of room for motorhome and Jeep toad. Electric and water service were strong. We had a 2-3 bar Verizon cell phone signal and I was getting a 4G Millenicom WIFI signal. The only ding is that there are no shade trees in the campground [only Junipers] so it can get fairly hot during the daytime hours if you are trying to sit outside. The park is located about 15 miles from any reasonable grocery stores or places to eat. If you like boating or water sports, etc, the reservoir is available. The $16/night rate reflects our America the Beautiful Golden Age senior discount card pass rate. We would stay here again if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Super Campground. Super Camp Host. Paved roads. Extra restrooms with showers. Some sites have view of the lake and dam. Weekend was pretty busy with locals but Sunday afternoon they all left and it got real quite and peaceful. 18 miles to Idaho Falls where there is a great walk/bike path along the Snake River and through city parks. Plenty of places to eat and things to do in IF. Rate reflects a $2.00 Senior Pass discount off the $18.00 full hookup rate. Will definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A wonderful county park campground. We camped here in a 40' motorhome with toad. The sites a large and plenty of green space between sites. We were on site A20. Interior roads were wide paved asphalt and easy to maneuver around; pads were also asphalt. Many of the sites are 50 amp full hook up, but they do have some 30 amp, so check first. Bathrooms and showers were very clean. We got good Verizon cell service, 4G Verizon MIFI and satellite signal. They have a nine hole disc golf course in park. Located on the Ririe Reservoir they have ramps for launching your boats for boating and fishing. The park is about 15 miles from Idaho Falls, which has many good restaurants and shopping stores. We would definitely return again when in the area. Our rate reflects a $2 discount for seniors; normal rate for 50 amp full hook ups is $18/night (a deal!) We camped here in a Motorhome.
Excellent campground at an excellent price. Roads and sites are paved. Each site has a picnic table and fire pit and grassy area.
Nine-hole disc golf course on site. Very clean restrooms with showers. The only drawback is they do not provide Wi-Fi. Using our own Verizon service we got good 4G signal. We would definitely stay here again. Very nice park in a beautiful setting. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a nice quiet park and is good for a day or two of relaxing. We stayed in Loop C that has level pull-through sites that are paved. Some site are not level, but you get to pick you own site. Full hook ups with great 50 amp. Strong Verizon signal. We got $2 off the regular rate with our seniors pass. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This RV Park is one of the "Best Kept Secrets" in Idaho. We camp here every year. With the Senior Card, we pay $16,00 per night. All sites are blacktopped and each site has a cemented style table, lots of shade trees and beautiful views. We found it by going to RV Reviews. It is always on our list of Campgrounds to visit while traveling. Our stay was 2 weeks. If you are looking for a very private, quiet, peaceful RV Park, you need to check this one out. The RV Park overlooks the lake below. This facility is our absolute favorite spot to visit every year. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice campground at an awesome price with a few drawbacks. There has been a lot of nice work recently done here with good on-going maintenance. It now has many very nice features, including paved park roads and sites, ample spacing, green grass, nice landscaping incorporated into the natural fauna, roomy, clean bathrooms with nice showers, and FHUs (30amp) in many of the sites, not all. To enable the green grass it gets auto-sprinkled so, if the wind is blowing, which it usually is here, expect some water on your stuff. Also, some of the sites are rather narrow and few are completely level. There are a few sites suitable for big rigs, but not many. None of the sites actually provide a lake view, but there are awesome, expansive views to the west. While I did call to reserve a site, the park is really managed as first-come first-served. I’ll be back. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
A difficult campground to rate. We had seen various recommendations and were just staying overnight. On the plus side - only about 3 miles off US 26 and not hard to find, pick your own site, very very quiet and peaceful, especially at night. However many of the sites were extremely unlevel and narrow, with only a few having a view of the reservoir. The new C loop does have really large and level sites, but we decided we liked A loop better. Would probably stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a county park. The reservation number is in the park & recreation department and does not get answered all the time. It is about 18 miles from the city. It's relatively hard to find so watch the signs carefully. First come first serve, except if some how you get the park and recreation office to reserve you a site. Loop C is newer and what you want if you have a big rig. Site B13 or B15 are very level and the highest in the park. They are easy pull through. Very scenic, beautiful, and relaxing so if you just want to relax, fish, or boat it's well worth the drive. Stock up on your groceries. They are expensive in the city. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This Park is a hidden gem. Dog friendly. Grass, grass and more grass. Park host is very friendly. Rest rooms are very clean. Many Big Rig sites. Just opened new Loop "C." Great fishing in Ririe Lake if you have a boat. Slips are available. Idaho Falls is approximately 15 miles. Three city owned golf courses: lush and inexpensive. Sprinklers run around mid-night: beware of spray if windy. Will stop again. Golden Age Discount. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great park with an awesome view of the river - nice and quiet - office staff was very nice. Would be a great place if you have a boat. The restrooms and showers were nice and clean. The park was just getting freshened up for the new season. We really liked the park. Some sites are short and would be hard to set up in a bigger rig. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Worth driving over to The Ririe dam to spend a few nights here. Setting is beautiful, sites huge and level. It is off the beaten path east of Idaho Falls and a lovely way to go if you are traveling to our from Yellowstone or the Grand Tetons. It is a jewel. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a well maintained campground. Each site has a fire pit and table. There are two loops to the campground. We stayed in the A loop, and we had the only site that did not have sewer hookups. Despite that inconvenience, we did enjoy the campground. The roads/sites are all blacktop. Leveling was easy. We did receive digital TV reception. The lake can be noisy until evening. There is plenty of space between sites and the views of the lake and sunset were outstanding. If I had to choose a negative, it would be the location and we found it impossible to fish from the bank as the sides are very steep. A boat would be a must if your purpose is to fish. Regardless, a very nice campground for a reasonable price. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very well taken care of RV park. We started coming here when the park was first opened. It has been continually improved on over the years. Great place for a get away close to "home". They always have very good camp host's that are friendly and helpful! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Only reason this does not get a 10 is that I am 20 miles from town to get a good meal. But, you can't get any quieter than this. This is a great place. All paved, level slots with good water, good electric and friendly people. Dogs loved it as they could run down below the dam and play in the creek. My 3G card worked fine and cell service is acceptable. Stayed in a 36' fifth wheel during a quiet week but the reservations look like it is very busy on weekends. Save $2 with Golden Passport. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The best kept secret in RV parks. Very quiet, very spacious. Kids loved catching crawdads at the lake. Reservations are a must. I don't believe there are any bad sites. Not all have sewer hookups though. There are even handicap accessable sites: 3 on A loop. Camp hosts are very agreeable. We camped here in a Motorhome.
[ 9 / 10 ]
The park is very well kept and sites are well spaced. Many long pull throughs. Good 50 amp power and excellent water pressure. Very quiet. Park host very helpful as we didn't know how long we were going to stay. They will allow up to 14 days and said we could pay daily,as there is no weekly or monthly rate. $2.00 off daily rate of 18.00 if you have Golden Access card. We would stay again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We have been motorhoming for 13 years on a half-time basis, and this is the second best park we have ever stayed in, considering "bang for the buck". The park was a Corps of Engineers park, turned over to the county, but retaining Golden Age pass privileges! The park is remote, quiet; well-kept and watered regularly, making it very attractive. The sites are huge. In addition, it is on a reservoir with boat ramps. It is one of the best kept secrets around. The only way we found the park was through the previous review here. The only downside is that during the summer it is heavily reserved by the nearby Idaho Falls population on weekends. The management style is laid back and cooperative. We camped here in a Motorhome.
My wife and I have been here several days, and we don't want to leave (although we must). We love the beauty and the peace and quiet here. If the staff were any friendlier, I'd adopt them - especially the camp hosts, imported from Britain. The sites are roomy, and most have grass, water, and electricity - (there is a sewer dump station). The park is very near the South Fork of the Snake River. Facilities are clean and very well-maintained. Lots of places to walk the dogs. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Well, where to start. First of all this RV park is located in the “boondocks” and not close to civilization. I found it rather hard to find. The next morning when I left, I got lost and had to call OnStar to guide me to the highway. Once there I found it confusing trying to determine where the office was located. No one was at the office, so I looked around and saw a trailer that said “manager” or some such equivalent. The camp hosts were very pleasant folks. I was led to my campsite which was quite a distance from the office. Once I got set up I tried to use the WiFi. I wasn’t provided the passcode and had to call the office and had to listen to an automated menu before I could connect to a live person. Once given the passcode the WiFi worked marginally. The roads and RV sites are gravel and very dusty. It was quiet where I was camped. With my AC running it would have to be quite noisy to hear outside sounds. In the morning I tried to locate the shower facility to no avail. I was not given a map of the campground which would have been very helpful. There are no sewer connections available at the sites. I was told that there was a dump station near the entrance. In the morning when I departed, I did not see the dump station and didn’t bother to find out where it was. I just figured it would be easier to empty at my next stop. it was also too pricy for not having sewer hookup. I would not stop there again if given a choice. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Even though I had a reservation confirmation, the RV Park Admin did not. Someone else was camped in the site I had requested so they put us in what appeared to be an expansion area. Not bad, we were almost entirely on our own, but that did not matter, read on. There are ATV trails nearby and ATV riders rode within the camp, including back and forth past our site even though no one else was camped near us. They were joy riding within the park without regard to other campers. This went unchecked by the RV park admin. Even though we were on the edge of the park, there was a highly used gravel road 2 sites away trafficked heavily by RV park admin Razor ATVs, horse drawn carts and horse boxes (trailers). It was dusty and noisy. The site was extremely narrow. We had hookups on the left and had to step down from our motorhome step because the gravel "pad" was elevated over the dirt (NOT grass) under our awning. The area under our awning was "natural". No effort had been made to level or even smooth the area. After a night of rain there were puddles along with the softball sized rocks to avoid. The vegetation was weeds. No attempt had been made to cultivate the area adjacent to the site. As noted, water and 20/30/50 amp hookups but no sewer. There is one dump station on the RIGHT as you exit the RV park, you would have to exit and re-enter the park for the dump to be on the correct side of a motorhome. While there was a dump station the hose was connected about 10 feet up a pole. It could not be reached without a ladder. The hose was about 6 feet long with no connection. It was just a cut piece of hose. So there is no way to connect a hose to rinse down the black tank with a "magic wand". Dump station was useless. The bathrooms and showers are centrally located in a nearly new building and they were very clean and well stocked/kept. There was one dumpster near the entrance to the area where we were parked. There was constant and annoying noise from either passing traffic near the site, what sounded like motorcycles on the public road, or what sounded like a gun club (skeet range) nearby. We did not observe the source of the noise, we just endured it. The camp "store" had plenty of candy, ice and drinks, but no milk! Come prepared. My impression, being as fair as I can, was the RV park is a work in progress. The showers/restrooms/hookups were all very good. The site was fairly level and gravel, but narrow. I would not consider going back anytime soon. The road out from Idaho Falls (highway 26) was almost all single lane traffic while the road was under construction. They had slurry coated the road in what passed for "surfacing". It was very dusty and getting a motorhome through the orange barrels kept me alert. I went slow enough to prevent wheel alignment damage from the huge potholes. Closest out-of-camp amenities were in Heise about 5 miles away. Signage to the RV park from highway 26 was very good. Maps on their web site only gave us an idea where they are located. There are no GPS coordinates posted and in emails, camp personnel were unable to provide these or tell me the names or numbers of nearby roads to help me get close. I took coordinates from Google Earth and crossed my fingers. This worked pretty well except mapping software would have taken me down a dirt road for the last 2 miles or so. We camped here in a Motorhome.
