Very nice park. Very clean, friendly and quite. Right next to the Greenbelt and the Boise River trail system. Nice level sites. We stayed in a deluxe site with a grass strip and separate parking for your tow vehicle. We stayed there for 6 nights. We camped at Boise Riverside RV Park in a Motorhome.

The reality is that this park is primarily for long term, permanent residents. Only the first two rows are reserved for transient RVers. The RVs in the other rows was a mixture of new rigs while others were in various shades of disrepair. There was one RV that had tarps over its roof . The first two rows were mostly pull-thrus and originally designed as "side by side". Now they are just one site. There are two electrical boxes side by side - one containing 50/15 amps and the other has 30/15 amp service. The voltage was good hovering around 122 volts. Some sites shared a water spigot most did not. The electrical box and water spigot was in the appropriate side. Most of the pull-thru sites were long enough for a RV and a tow. The interior roads and sites were on crushed rocks. There were many small pot holes that you can trip on. The first site that was assigned to us was not level so were moved to another location. Picnic tables were available upon request. WiFi was available but not really usable. Verizon air card and phone reception was good. A dump station with fresh water along with propane was located near the office. The laundry and bathrooms were very clean. The laundry has 8 washers and 8 dryers, both costing $1.50. What this park has going for itself is location. The greenbelt was next door and downtown Boise was a quick 15 minutes away. During our stay there has been major flooding due to releasing of water from the reservoirs upstream. Only about 3 miles of trail was not under water. We would come back to this park only because of its location. We camped at Boise Riverside RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Wanted to write because I thought a previous review was unfair. We previously lived in Boise so stay at Riverside RV frequently when we come back through town. The campground is a combination of live-ins (mostly towards the back) and campers coming in for nightly and weekly stays. We have stayed in both areas and do prefer the transient section but the other isn't bad. Most sites are decently kept. The majority of sites are relatively spacious and have a grass or a concrete patio and parking for the extra vehicle across from the grass or patio. Staff has always gone out of their way to be helpful and the location along the Boise River Greenbelt is great. We camped at Boise Riverside RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Campground is adjacent to minor league baseball park and fairgrounds. You can hear cheers from the games in the summer evenings. The RV park is crazy busy during the fair in mid-late August - not my favorite time to visit, but even then it was fine.

Riverside RV Park is nice as long as you focus on the first three rows. The first row are the back-in sites that have water and electric only. The next two rows are pull-thrus sites that have FHU. The pull-thru sites have a strip of concrete and a strip of grass giving it a spacious look.

There are two sections to the back-in sites (Golf Course and Green Belt). Golf Course (sites 1 thru 10) has a make shift utility service. The electrical service was fastened to the picket fence and some lines were on the ground. Each site is connected to a green water line also attached to the picket fence. I sure hope this green hose was approved for drinking. We chose not to use this hose for drinking water.

The Golf Course sites were fairly long but definitely not level. We have seen many RV's bottom out trying to get into the site. The Green Belt sites were shorter in length and have the typical pedestal arrangement.

Beyond the first three rows are the long term residents. The sites are "side by side" and are extremely tight. Some of the rigs look that they have been abandoned but people are living in them. There is a lot of "junk" surrounding the sites. Multiple cars per site parked haphazardly. Not a pretty site.

The bathhouse had 4 showers per gender and (8) washers @ $1.50 and (8) dryers @ $1.50 for 60 minutes. The bathrooms were clean but starting to show their age. WiFi was available but not very usable. You would need to go to the office for good reception. Verizon air card and phone reception was good. There is a dump station within the park. Some of the trees need to be pruned.

Considering this is an inner city campground, some leeway should be made. However, I do think that management should have tighter controls on what is allowed on a site as well as the condition of the rigs.

This is probably the best campground in the area. Remember that this campground is located in Garden City not Boise. We would come back being aware of what to expect. We camped at Boise Riverside RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Our first night was spent in a Long Term site, in the dust bowl, next to the stream. The next morning we were able to move to the pull through sites in the front rows. These sites feature full hookups, a strip between your RV and the tow vehicle parking which is concrete walkway and grass. Plenty of room. Staff was very helpful and friendly. The River Walk is just a few steps away and great stuff...including the Cormorant Rookery. The fairgrounds were pretty quiet during our stay, late in the season. This is a handy location, near major stores and amenities. We enjoy our stays here and will return when in the area. We camped at Boise Riverside RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The park is mostly permanent residents. It is a gravel parking lot with dilapidated/broken cement patios. The patios in the section for overnighters and visitors do not necessarily correspond to the position of the MH. Cable/phone boxes are sometimes in the way of getting slides out.

The location is great for a visit to Boise. It provided easy access to the entertainment district and downtown. It is along the greenbelt with fishing, biking, and walking right at your front door. We camped at Boise Riverside RV Park in a Motorhome.

All staff was friendly and most helpful. Office staff provided maps and information on local attractions. We stayed in a W&E back-in site next to the river trail, as that was all they had available during our 5 day stay. Those sites are very close together, although you could hang out with some privacy at the rear of your rig, facing the trail and in the shade. It seemed like the pull-through sites are saved for those staying at least a week. The best feature for us was that it was right on the Boise River Trail, allowing us to ride our bikes to downtown (10 miles round trip). Very nice trail. We camped at Boise Riverside RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Very dusty. Nothing paved only gravel. There is a 5 MPH limit to keep the dust down and they say that the speed limit is strictly enforced but that is absolutely not true. Winds will often create dust storms within the park. I gave it a "Bad" review for cleanliness due to their lack of effort to control the dust.

Sites are close together.

Some permanent residents and some complete POS rigs.

Park is wedged between the fairgrounds and the riverwalk. Also made a reservation for full hookup site and only had water and electric when we got here.

You must disconnect because you have to park perpendicular to your rig. We camped at Boise Riverside RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Very good experience. After 7 nights in Yellowstone this was a joy to see. Employees were attentive and friendly. Gravel interior roads were smooth and well maintained. Not dusty. Bathrooms were clean, well serviced, and water flow in the showers was very good. We made our reservation 3 weeks in advance and all that was left was a W/E site. Being right on the Greenbelt and close to shopping was a plus for us. We camped at Boise Riverside RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The best feature of this park is its location right on the Garden City Greenbelt multiuse trail which connects to the Boise River Greenbelt. Sites are large, with a dedicated separate space for tow vehicle or toad. Most of the park is gravel. The exception is the Greenbelt sites, which are water and electric only. These have grass, but are much narrower.

Adjacent Hawks ballpark is rather noisy, especially on weekends, but if you enjoy baseball, you might want to take in a game.

Good Sam discount, but we stayed a week for $234. We camped at Boise Riverside RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Walk or bike the greenbelt upriver toward Boise. The Idaho Anne Frank Human Rights Memorial is adjacent to the greenbelt about 5 miles from the RV park. It is well worth visiting.

In the summertime you can tube or raft on the river or you can swim and play on the lakes near the Greenbelt.

The High Note Cafe downtown has $1 street tacos and $2 Tecates all day Tuesday.

Park is very convenient to shopping, including a Fred Meyer grocery just over a mile away.

Overall, it is what you should expect from a campground or RV park in the middle of an urban area. Clean restrooms and fairly reliable WiFi (free) are something that is rare in most campgrounds in this area. The ability to jump onto the Greenbelt and walk to the River (within 3-5 minutes of walking) is a great luxury that none of the other RV parks and resorts here can offer you. Some of the permanent/long term residents have encroached on space that's not theirs. We camped at Boise Riverside RV Park in a Motorhome.

Hop on the Greenbelt and see where it takes you. Beautiful riparian area in the heart of two connected cities (Boise and Garden City). Right behind the stadium of a Class A baseball team (tickets are very cheap).

We just overnighted here and found all of the other reviews to be on point. It is just a big gravel lot, so it was dusty. We didn't use any of the facilities or amenities, but I did enjoy a run along the Greenbelt. It was shady though as much of it was just a paved path between fence lines and trees. I wouldn't have felt safe if there weren't so many other bikers out on the path. We camped at Boise Riverside RV Park in a Motorhome.

As mentioned, the positive is access to the hiking greenbelt. WiFi is next to useless. VZ jetpack worked well. Decent ATT cell.
Tightest spot we have seen in two years of full time. Slides missed by 6 inches. Had to duck under to get to electric. No shade. No table.
Rate was the weekly, no "clubs" discounts.
Lots of dust and dirt, even without a breeze (it was 90 degrees).
Would go out to Caldwell next time. We camped at Boise Riverside RV Park in a Motorhome.

We were overwhelmed by the customer service of this campground. Upon arrival, we got a personal escort to our site by a friendly man on a golf cart. Upon request, he provided us with a picnic table. The facilities were immaculate. The laundry room has ample machines that worked better than mine do at home! We reserved 9 bicycles to ride on the Greenbelt. The next morning, they were one short so the owner allowed us to use her granddaughter's bike! They were helpful with directions and overall tips. We had a fabulous experience!

HOT! We stayed 1 night on our way to Bend. It worked for us. Flat, level, dusty. Satellite friendly as there is hardly any shade. 50Amp was strong, and so was our wifi. Too hot & tired to use the greenbelt. Huge Fed Meyer store close by. Almost anything you could want, and then some. A ways off the 84 for a RON. We camped at Boise Riverside RV Park in a Motorhome.
