Nice little RV park and is a short, easy drive to Craters national monument. Grass between sites and quite a few trees. Very friendly owners. We did eat dinner in their cafe one night and the ribs served with salad and smoked potato was excellent! We camped at Mountain View RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is an average campground, sites are close to each other, but not as bad as some places. Campground is under new ownership and they are working on cleaning things up. The bathrooms are clean, large laundry room with older machine that work fine, they just need a sign telling how much and how long they run. There is a nice little restaurant on site which we were planning on going there for dinner on a Saturday night in July after talking to owner the night before about how good the food was, but when we went for dinner there was a sign closed for the Saturday and Sunday, very disappointing that owner did not tell us that the day before...There is a putt putt golf course but it's old and not really playable. Short drive to Crater of the Moons. Room for big RV's ATT cell worked and free WFI worked ok. Arco is nice little town with small store, restaurants and gas stations. We camped at Mountain View RV Park in a Motorhome.

This park has pull-through spaces which are gravel, separated by grass strips. The hookups include water, 50 amp electric, and sewer. In addition, Wi-Fi service is included and worked well. There are restrooms with showers available as well as a laundry which are all clean and well maintained. The price seems a bit high given that this park is located in relatively remote Arco, ID. Also, although it's a minor point, they have a few DVDs, maybe 8 or 10 and charge $3 to rent them, mind you these are not current releases. Most RV parks who choose to collect DVDs allow their customers to borrow them at no charge. We camped at Mountain View RV Park in a Motorhome.

Small clean campground with level sites. Close to Arco and close to Craters of the Moon N.M. We camped at Mountain View RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Make sure that your Good Sam card has an expiration date or it won't be accepted. Even though ours was current it listed no date.

Mountain View has friendly staff; all sites are pull-throughs; dynamite Wi-Fi is included, as are the advertised mountain views. Prior policy of allowing washing of vehicles has been suspended because of a water shortage. Fortunately the shortage is not so severe as to prevent watering the grass in the areas separating the vehicles. Picnic tables and charcoal grills are provided at each site. Arco is a town of 994 people but lots to do in the area. The Park is 18 miles from Craters of the Moon National Monument, a must-see even if you have experienced flowing lava. Elsewhere Experimental Breeder Reactor#1, now a museum, was the first nuclear facility in the U.S. to produce electricity. For those with a high-clearance 4WD toad, the park and neighboring areas have plenty of rough roads. Nearby Mackey has a self tour of abandoned mines and equipment, and there is a natural bridge a Jeep ride and a moderate hike away. We camped at Mountain View RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The middle third of the so-called Arco-Minidoka road is an off-road challenge. The Minidoka National Historic Site of a WWII Japanese internment camp, however, is 48 miles to the west of the town. There are lots of fishing sites in the area but not many fish in the heat of July. There is a Hemingway Nature Preserve near Picabo. For food in Arco, there are a few mom & pop places and the Mountain View Park has a small restaurant.

Nice park. Good electric and water. Grass between sites. All gravel but good roads. I did think the sites were a little short for long 5th wheels as their trucks got in the way when leaving. The owner is trying to keep this park quite which it was and in good looking order. Would stay again when in the area. If you have a rooftop satellite park to the back of your spot so the tree will not block your signal. We camped at Mountain View RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Go see the craters of the moon.

Stayed in Arco to visit Craters of the Moon NM. The campground in the park is very barren, as would be expected, with no services and it can get pretty warm there. If you want hookups you need to go to Arco. Nice park although some of the spots are short. The staff was excellent and they have a small cafe that serves up some very tasty dishes. We were able to position our rig so that the satellite dish got connected. Some highway noise but there wasn't much traffic at night. Lawn sprinklers will water your rig so make sure storage compartments are tightly closed. We camped at Mountain View RV Park in a Motorhome.

Ok RV park. Right off the main road so you get some noise. Sites are short so tough to park my truck and 31' trailer. Facilities a bit dated and 'funky' but otherwise clean and functional. Sites were spread apart with a mature tree in between (which obstructed our awning) but good spacing for a private campground. At least you weren't sitting right by your neighbours septic. We camped at Mountain View RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

The roads and sites are gravel with grass. All sites are full hookups. The campground is very clean and neat. We stayed here to visit the Craters Of The Moon park. It is only about 15 miles away. The office is also a restaurant. I haven't tried them, but I hear the burgers are really good. If you want satellite ask for a site on row D; speak to them when/if you make your reservation so they can put you in a site. There is some shade (a welcome relief from the summer heat) at most sites (which may also prevent good satellite reception). We camped at Mountain View RV Park in a Motorhome.

Wonderful park to visit Craters of the Moon NP. Spacious sites, some shade, and quiet. The most noise is from the birds on the morning. Friendly and helpful staff. Clean laundromat. We camped at Mountain View RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Expect it to be hot here in June.

The sites in this park are much more spacious than the typical privately owned full service RV park. The owners are on site and work hard to keep it in great shape. There is nice grass and a fair amount of trees to shade the area, too. We were here to visit Craters of the Moon National Monument. We would definitely come here again.

Park is an Oasis in the desert. Lots of tree and grass. Staff/owner was very friendly and even cut some branches for us when they interfered with our slide out. On the highway but quiet. Grass was watered, a lot, and since it is hard water we had to clean truck window with vinegar the next morning just to see the road. Site was large and long, level gravel. Good power, water hook ups and sewer connection on drivers side 1/3 up. Ate a very nice breakfast at the on site café. Would stay again. We camped at Mountain View RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

You probably won't find better hi-speed wifi anyplace. The park was clean and the parking spacious. They were doing some remodeling on the office when we were there. We would go again. We camped at Mountain View RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

I walked into town and took pictures .... about 3/4 mile I think.

This is a nice RV park - very clean and tidy. We made an unplanned stop here while we had some repairs made. The sites were wide, level, and well-planned. The staff is very friendly. This is one place we will happily come back to. We camped at Mountain View RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
