2 RV Parks near Almo, Idaho

A gem of a park if you are seeking a quiet, out of the way park in which to unwind. We camped at Smokey Mountain Campground in a 35 ft motorhome. Our site was a long pull-through with adequate room for our Toad. The sites are all paved and well spaced so you actually have some solitude. The bathrooms and showers were exceptionally clean and well maintained. The park is located adjacent to City of Rocks National Preserve, a very popular destination site for rock climbers- which were present in good numbers on the weekend of our visit. Hiking trails were plentiful in the state park and the historic California Trail runs nearby for the history buffs. The campground was full on our visit, almost all from nearby Utah and Idaho. Fellow campers pointed at our Arkansas license plates and wondered if we had gotten lost. Warning- the nearest shopping is 50 miles away in Burley, ID, so stock up before visiting the park. A quaint general store in Almo does provide a limited amount of groceries. I would definitely stay at this park again. The park staff was some of most friendly and engaging people we have met on our travels. - ARTraveler2

Beautiful campground! Many trees, good privacy. Campground is located on a hillside so all spaces have a nice view. Lots of room between spaces, plus lots of trees and bushes so it's not easy to even see your neighbors. - Robbo

A rustic campground with water and electric hookups. Our site was beautiful and private. We had great views of the surrounding mountains. The site was 80 feet long but was curved. We had a little trouble getting positioned just right to unhook and get hooked up again. We had to hookup on an angle. Other than that the campground was really convenient to the City if Rocks NM.
As with most of the restrooms we used in Idaho the campground ones were spotless.
There is not much of anything close by as far as groceries unless you want to pay high prices so stock up before you arrive. - John Borajkiewicz

The park is a mecca for rock climbers, and most sites were full on the weekend but less than half full during the week. We were in a 25 foot motorhome in site 12 (one of the largest sites) and had plenty of room. The site was fairly level with a fire pit and near the bathroom, which was exceptionally clean. My only negative was that the hiking trails were poorly marked for hiking. They were really marked for what rock climb was available on that loop. There are no generators allowed in the park! The entrance road is 5 miles of relatively well maintained dirt/gravel. The low elevation in the park is about 6000 feet. There is only one source or water in the park (hand pump) just before Bread Loaves rock but water is available at the ranger station and the Smokey Mountain campground. For the best scenic view hike the Tea Kettle train near sunset. The town of Almo is 5 miles away and has both gas and diesel but no propane. There is a small general store for necessities. - Gindy

I gave the park a 8 because of the nice primitive campsites with good views of the rocks and country side. No facilities here except for vault toilets. The park is kid friendly in so far as there is open areas to play. No playground or other facilities. - A-S_Travels

There are several campgrounds in the City of Rocks, but not all can accommodate large RVs. The sites are all dirt and some are not very level. We stayed in site #7 which was large enough for our 36' class A, but not very level. Getting there is the tough part. From Almo you need to drive about 3 miles on a rough dirt road (not maintained in winter and very messy when wet). We would say here again, but would think twice about bringing the RV. No cell reception from either AT&T or Verizon. Weak signal in town though the local market offers Internet access. Water (threaded spigot) is available at the Visitor Center so fill up there. There is a dump station just before the dirt road into the campground. Lots of hiking and biking trails with great scenery. Dogs are allowed on the trails! Castle Rocks State Park has a nearby campground that may be better suited for RVs. - DogsRule3
