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.

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.

Place is okay, great location. Roads are gravel and tend to get dusty. Bathroom is dated; faucet fell off one sink, could only get hot water out of all 3 sinks. Showers okay, again are dated. Only two toilets for this large park. With over 120 slots and the place appearing to be booked every day we were day, I think they could put some money into remodeling the bathrooms or even paving the roads. Some of the workers were quite friendly, one was rude to my wife and ignored her when she came into the office and asked where the laundry was. Location was great. We camped at Boise Riverside RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Next to the river with paved paths to walk. Many nearby shops and restaurants - great location. Despite the issues, we would stay here again. But it could be so much more.

We had a last minute change in plans that had us heading to Boise. The park we normally stay at was full so we called around and the folks here at Boise Riverside were able to accommodate us. What was available was a 50 amp & water site on the grass. We were quite happy with it as it backed up to the Greenbelt path and was, for the most part, out of the dust. As others have noted this park is dusty, what with gravel roads and sites. The other drawback is the distance it is off of Interstate 84, its a bit of a drive with lots of signal lights and stop & go traffic. That being said, I would stay here again. The services at our site worked well, the staff was friendly and the laundry room was spotless! We camped at Boise Riverside RV Park in a Motorhome.

Clean and quiet campground. We got a W/E site that backed up to the Boise River Trail, a walking and biking path that heads along the river for miles. Lots of birds and a heavy deciduous forest along the river made sitting outside pretty nice. The site was pretty tight. If someone had been camped next to us I am not sure our awning would have fit. Some of the full hookup sites are a tad bigger, but not by much. Pads and interior roads are gravel but in good shape. Our site was level front to back and side to side. We camped at Boise Riverside RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Stayed three nights. Central location, there is a bike trail along the river that takes you to a zoo and other sites. It's right next to the fair grounds so be sure there isn't an event if you want quiet time. There was a dirt bike show one night but it was over before we went to bed. Definitely an RV park vs. a camping park. We camped at Boise Riverside RV Park in a Motorhome.

No pavement anywhere. All dirt and gravel and the accompanying dust. Great access to the greenbelt, though. Pull through sites are level and long enough for our 40' rig and includes a concrete and grass patio area. No picnic table is automatically included, but I did see some, so I think you can ask for one to be delivered to your site when you check in. Office staff are very helpful and friendly, but staff in golf carts can be annoying. There is a slew of rules, but the only one they want to enforce is the 5 MPH limit. WIFI came and went, but other utilities were fine except that the sewer hookup at our site was damaged, so I weighted down the joint to keep it in place. Also, there were 2 sewer connections at our site, both open. Park is nothing special and not terrible. If I ever go back to Boise I might stay there again, mostly to access the greenbelt. We camped at Boise Riverside RV Park in a Motorhome.
