7 Parks near American Falls, Idaho
Sep 2016 - $33.00
What a terrific state park. Beautiful sites with utilities and some with views of the Snake River. Awesome.
We stayed at site 42 and while there are many sites to suit the needs/wants of campers, I liked this one because of the views and that the site needed very little levelling. Beautiful sunrises. We will be coming back through this way in 12-14 days and will stay at this or any other site.
One other thing. The camp host is very diligent in making the rounds. Does her job well.
I give this only a 7 rating because it has only 30 amp connection instead of 50amp and it has no sewer connection at the site. But what the heck, it's a campground not an RV park. - exportman

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. - Bruce and Sue

Stopped here in mid-October. Even though it was a mild weather weekend there were only a half-dozen campers. The lower loop was closed so stayed in site #13 in the upper loop. Sites 13 & 14 have a great view of the Snake River. All sites have 30 amp, water (except 11), table and fire ring, no sewer but there is a dump station. This campground is an arid, rocky terrain with sagebrush and scrub pines thus very little shade. Has $$ wifi/great ATT cell signal/great satellite. Pricing is $33/night, there is a $19 senior rate for M-Th ( these are out of state prices). Most sites will fit a 40' rig. This CG is open year-round. - HoliRambler1

This is a typical fairground/rodeo grounds park. Grass covered level sites. Water and 30 amp electricity at the sites. Dump available. You should be self contained as there are no showers and the only restrooms are over at the arena. The park is far enough off the freeway and far enough from the railroad tracks to be quite quiet at night. There is a private airport next door, but not lighted so there is no nighttime traffic. Definitely not a destination, but quite adequate for an overnighter. - JohnJ

Great wide pull-thru spaces. Spaces 22 to about 28 or 29 are super long 70+ feet long and at least 50-60 feet wide. Gravel parking with grass between sites. Fairly level. Trees give some shade, yet satellite reception is good. No cable and the water is a bit hard, so use a softener if you have it. Biggest ding is freight trains which go by and can disturb your sleep. Nice café within walking distance, which is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Food was good and fairly priced. Understand plans are underway to paved the roads and sites by next year which will make things cleaner. - hawkandmegan

Very nice campground on the edge of American Falls reservoir. Large grassy areas, tables, and fire rings. Easy access from the interstate. There is a cafe that overlooks the water. There is also a nice hiking path that leads along the edge of a marshy area, great for bird watching. The reservoir level is low this time of year due to irrigation and power demands making it difficult to launch a boat or to fish from the banks. Really, the only bad thing about the campground is it's location next to the railroad tracks, a little loud sometimes. - George48

Lovely park setting overlooking the reservoir. W e wish we'd had more information on the on-site cafe as we might have eaten there. Campground host very friendly and checked-up on us to make certain everything about our site was satisfactory after we were hooked-up. Nice, paved walking trails. There is a rail line which runs close to the park which can be a bit noisy ... but, nothing to discourage staying there. We'd stay there again! - dandd

I give this park a low rating for two reasons: 1) they have a completely unenforced quiet time policy. We were kept awake until 1 AM by a loud reunion crowd next to us. 2) There only two showers for the whole camp, and they are very primitive and crude. The camping is unique-- a very large grassy field with full hookups around the edges. Some spots have shade. - Bruce Wray

We were greeted by the owner who escorted us to a large, grassy, 50 amp site with satellite access - exactly what I requested. It could be a tight fit if the park was full, but we had no one next to us. There is a 90 degree spring fed pool which we did not visit. Lots of families here on the weekends for family reunions. Not a noisy drinking crowd, just family people. Large grassy areas make for a nice atmosphere. There is also food available for purchase at the pool; however, we did not try it. Definitely need a reservation for a big rig wanting 50 amps. Good electrical service; new boxes. They even came by to make sure we were happy and did not need anything! - Freedom Bus

Had a wonderful month at this park. Water is 90 in the pool. Lots of grass and trees. Well kept park. The new owner is working really hard to up-grade everything including new toilets (flush) all over the park and 50 amp service. Very family friendly. - Dick Noble

This park was a great find! It was the perfect spot to rest and relax before continuing on the road. The park was small, quiet, and had nice grass at each site. The man at the office was very courteous, friendly, and helpful. There was excellent signage to the park. Others have commented about the fertilizer plant nearby. This was not a problem at all. There was pretty greenery and a creek in the other direction, which made the park very pleasant. We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay here and would return anytime we are in the area. - Dr Karen

This is a decent park for an overnight or two, although as some have mentioned, getting in and out can be somewhat of a challenge, especially for rigs longer than about 35'. We stayed two nights in a 40' (without a toad), but had no trouble maneuvering since we were the only campers in the park. And for that same reason, we found the park to be peaceful and quiet. Another big plus for us was the owner, who was very accommodating and friendly. We would probably stay here again if we found ourselves passing thru Pocatello at some point in the future. - TW Flash

Rate reflects monthly rate. A very recently built park with good signage from the Interstate, already showing some signs of neglect but suitable for our purposes. Some distant noise from a fertilizer plant and also a railroad crossing. Owners were friendly enough and there is a self registration and pick your own spot. Access and leaving may entail driving across grass between sites if in a larger rig. Wi-Fi was good as was power and water pressure. We would stay again. - run2

How do you make a site longer than it is? Just say it's longer. That this park is neat and clean couldn't make up for the fact that the definition of a pull in site behind another occupant is undefined and can be described as able to accommodate a 40ft motorhome when it really isn't. We prefer an RV park to Walmart, but the choice here would be difficult, if we needed a place to stay again in Pocatello. - MSTraveler

Felt a little tight - spaces are close together. But had no problems hooking up, extending awning, etc. Our wifi worked sporadically. Stayed here one night on way to Tetons plus another night on way back. We camped here in a 32' travel trailer. Would stay here again. - donw78025

We stayed overnight. The asphalt space was not very level and we needed 3" of leveling on one side. But, this park is better than the KOA in Pocatello, which only has 30A service and is dirt. - Shadowberr

There have been a few changes since we were last here. The showers have been updated and now actually usable. The also constructed a huge sporting event center about a mile away from the fairgrounds.
All of the interior roads are on dirt and the sites are on grass. The sites are not level (in either position). All sites are back-ins with water and electric. The 30 amp electrical service was strong. A dump station with non-potable water was also available.
The bathhouse has 6 showers per gender and was clean.
Picnic tables, fire rings, 50 amp electrical service and Wi-Fi were not available. There was some road noise from the freeway. It can be very dusty if the winds kick in.
We would stay at this fairground if we come back to Pocatello. We have a 32 foot 5th wheel. - adsaxs

Nice, grassy , back-in sites. Water and 50 or 30 amp. No sewer, but they do have a dump station. Self check-in, honor system, pay by personal check in the provided envelopes, and drop box. There is an "unofficial" camp host who was friendly enough and asked us if we were "settled in" OK.
There is a fair amount of fwy noise from the I-15, but not enough to keep us awake. Occasional train, but the horn is really all you can hear. Website says there are 100 spaces, and we only saw 5 or 6 other rigs here. No events here this weekend, so camp was very quiet. No shade trees here, but for the price, and ease of check-in, this place is a great stop for overnight. - db8s

It is what it is. Grassy spots that are on a side hill so bring your leveling blocks. Beautiful overlooking the city. Easy to find and maneuver in. A little too much $$ for only water and electric but it had a dump site. Quiet. No picnic tables or amenities like wifi. I would stay here again. - hit it
