4 Parks near American Falls, Idaho

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

My ratings are for comparable state/national park campgrounds. I'm not comparing to RV Parks or Resorts.
This is a Idaho State park with a magnificent views. We staying in the upper section which offers views over the Snake River that excellent. Our spot did not have the view but a short walk took us there. Some spots along the ridge would be excellent except we have small kids and I'm sure one would find a way to tumble down. The lower loop is down in the river bottom. We might choose one of those spots on our return.
Bathrooms/showers are dated but kept clean and stocked.
Staff was friendly and helpful. They offered programs for the kids regarding Oregon Trail, crafting etc. The kids enjoyed this part. Hiking trails are present....I can't rate this one as we only took one quick trek. Rattlesnakes are in the area. One was found that day near campsites. However it was removed by park personnel quickly upon being notified. They ask to report such matter. Firewood avail for $6 from concessions.
We will return again if traveling through. - QFamCA

We have to admit that we felt we had the BEST site in this park, number 31. It sits up high (even though it is in what they call the lower campground) overlooking the Snake River...beautiful! They do not have sewer hookups; otherwise it would rate a ten. The employees and especially the hosts and volunteers are very friendly and informative, sharing all kinds of native flora and fauna and local history. The Oregon Trail nearby locations and the geography of the place were very interesting. The park was not very crowded (on a mid June weekend) so it was very peaceful. We would definitely recommend it. - dbcordello

We stayed at this National Park for a week during Memorial day. We made reservations early and were happy we did because the park was full and not many spaces for my 40 ft rig. After the holiday there were plenty of spaces available but, for the good spots I would book early. We booked space 42 which was a loop space close to the river. Check-in was easy due to early booking. There is a lot of history here and the visitor center and hiking trails have a lot of information about the area's past, during the Oregon and California wagon trails. The spots are paved and easy to pull into. The hookups are in the right location. There are no sewer hookups but there is a dump station. Our spot was level so we didn't need any blocks. The spots have a table and a fire pit and they sell firewood at the visitor center. There are lots of hiking trails and during the summer there are canoes to rent. The river is slow moving and wide with bass, rainbow and cutthroat trout. The camp is quiet but it would be perfect if it was not so close to the highway so you can really get away from it all. You do get use to the humming of the truck tires. Thankfully there isn't much traffic on the road. There are showers and they were clean. Surprisingly, our Verizon service was awesome and we have our own Wi-Fi. There were no tall trees that blocked our satellite as well but we spent most of the time outside exploring. We would come back to this park again. - SteelHorseRider

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

This is an OK park; we stayed there overnight. In the part we stayed in, the sites were all pull-through, paved, pretty level and surrounded by grass. They also have a picnic table and a fire pit. On some the sewer hookup is not well located. The bathrooms are spartan but clean. The owner of the RV park runs a restaurant and, while we didn't eat there, it looked OK. The park is near the Snake River and there is a hiking/bike path adjacent to the RV park that I think goes along the river. One thing other reviewers may not have mentioned: the park is not too far from a railroad line and trains do run on it at various hours, including at night. If you're a light sleeper, this could be a problem. - neuronz

We just used this as an overnight stop; it's 2 miles off I-86. Sites are fairly spacious with lawn in between, gravel interior roads and sites. Fairly level, and we did not have to unhook. Each site has a picnic table and fire ring. Their WiFi worked fine, and we had a good Verizon cell signal. The restrooms and showers looked OK, but I didn't use them. The reservoir/river is visible from most sites and is an easy walk. It is $30 for full hookups. There is a dump station. We paid $25 for a water/electric pull through site. This park could use a little TLC, but I would stay here again. - trussman

The RV park has some very large spots. Shady in most areas. We enjoyed our long-term stay here with a few exceptions. The owner is a very nice lady and liked her very much. However, she tries to do Everything from running the store, cooking at the cafe, mowing the grounds, etc. The Cafe was pretty good overall, but at times it could be hit or miss. If the owner was cooking, it was a hit, otherwise, it could be very slow and the food, so-so. The store and cafe would run out of beverages over some of the biggest/busiest weekends, as if they didn't stock up for the weekend or anticipate enough. The bathrooms were generally not clean. Toilet tissue and paper towels were frequently empty and the showers were not cleaned and in need of repair. All the shower heads were broken. The laundry facilities were OK, but when the dryer broke down, it was not repaired, at least in the two weeks prior to our departure. No notice was placed on the dryer to indicate that it was broken, so some of the campers lost money. Next, they do their best to make sure the sites are watered and green; however, it was not uncommon that they would leave the water running for days at a time. Some of the sites were flooded due to that. They did do their very best to make sure things were fixed when they good, but one water faucet ran for two weeks straight before it was repaired. Like I said, it is a nice place, no problems with crimes, etc, but it just seems the owner is overwhelmed. Yes, we would definitely stay again. - cdavis67
