7 Parks near American Falls, Idaho
Oct 2015 - $19.00
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

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

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

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

This park has the best view and the most friendly host of all the many parks we have visited during the last couple of months in the US. Beautiful sunsets, and a host that is simply just so positive, service minded, and constructive. Full hookups, fire pit with BBQ and lots of space for everyone. There is great fishing on and by the lake, a nice little beach just a very short walk away, and a cozy restaurant 100 feet away. We will absolutely stay again. - International tourist

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 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

This is a nice, little, no-frills, self-serve spot. We called ahead and they left a note taped to the door with instructions and Wi-Fi codes. We were able to park in any open spot. There is a self check-in at the office. The owner drove through later and said to call with any problems. There were none. All sites were well kept, pull-through with full hook-ups and 50 amp. You park on gravel with grass between the sites. The couple who came to water the grass made sure to alert us and actually worked around us so our rig would not get wet. The place is part of an RV/boat storage facility and bordered by a creek on one-side and farming on the other. We stayed 2 nights. - Tom&Sophie

Bring extra sewer hoses and make a reservation! As stated, the sites are connected to one another which requires extra sewer hose. The lawn is dead, roads are tight, and they fill up quickly. If you are a large rig make sure you call ahead for one of their pull-thru sites. There is no sign showing where to turn once you get off the freeway. Look for 'Barton' street and you will go right to the place. The sites are not level so be prepared to wiggle around to try and get your rig leveled out. - User1471

Easy access off the freeway but set back far enough that there is no highway noise. The entrance is not well marked and there are three....take the first one you see. Large registration queue and friendly staff. Most sites are buddy sites with two rigs per pad. We were in site 31, which was a true single pull thru, which was nice, but was not level and our rear passenger side tire was off the ground after leveling, first time this has happened. Interior roads a little tight but manageable. Utilities were fine. Restrooms and laundry were nice. Morning coffee and afternoon cookies. May need a tailgater to get satellite. They need another dumpster.. Filled up early on the weekend and was overflowing by Monday. - VegasVagabonds

This park is easy to get to from the interstate. Also is very easy to get back on the freeway.
This is one of the cleanest parks we have stayed in!!
Site was very level and had enough room for the trailer, slides and truck.
Good power, water pressure and wifi.
Also was very quiet.
Would definitely stay there again. - cooter5

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

Grassy sites with 30/50 amp power and water, and a dump station on the grounds. No one was in the office so we used the self pay station. We were the only ones in the entire 122 space RV park. Some noise during the day from a few activities on the fairgrounds, and some through traffic, but that quieted down in the evening. Sites are back in with a "39 foot limit", but you could easily park sideways if towing and you don't want to drop your toad. A good overnight spot. - lostinspace

When I called for a reservation, I was told reservations weren't taken, that there should be spaces available. Turns out I was the only one parked in the area. It was also raining, but the area was very quiet until the morning. Construction equipment, school buses and commuters drove through. I would come here again, for an overnight only. - Woolibaar
