Nice place with nice owners! We wanted to attend the Historic Opera house dinner show, and they booked our reservation for us... very helpful. The owners have recently taken it over during the past year and seem to be getting things in shape. The sites were clean and nicely shaded. The facility is in a good location close to the cute little town of Glenns Ferry. Be sure and visit the state park and visitor center, museum, and the fun Historic Opera House. Several fun businesses in town too. Be sure as everyone says, say hello to Romeo... a four legged delight! Park is very pet friendly with nice grounds. cell service and WiFi. - Bernadette Newman

What a gem. This little park is clean, easy to get into even for a 40' motorhome towing, and friendly. The new owner was very helpful. Any review prior to November 2014 should be ignored as that is when the current owner took over. The buildings are all freshly painted and the grounds are clean and welcoming. It is quiet except for the occasional train in the distance. The freeway noise is practically nonexistent. We will definitely stay here again and will highly recommend Trail Break to friends. Be sure to say Hi to Romeo and give him a pat on the head. - Team 2Bs

We were greeted by one of the owners as we pulled in, and he knew who we were! He helped guide us into our site and offered to assist us with hooking up. Check-in was quick and easy. This park is a gem. It's clean and beautiful with many large trees and a large, manicured lawn area. There is grass and mature trees between each of the level sites with plenty of room for slide outs for each RV. There's plenty of space to walk the dog. The owner stopped by later to advise us that fresh coffee is available at 6:00 a.m. Next to us were 2 sets of RVer's that are regular campers who come here several times per year. Everyone was welcoming, friendly and inviting. We loved, loved, loved this place. We will stop here every time we come through Idaho. If we didn't have reservations elsewhere, we would have stayed longer. GPS directions worked perfectly, and the park was easy to locate. - J rys

This is one of our favorite parks. It is green and peaceful with an interesting museum about the Oregon Trail. Sites have 30-amp service and water. There are 2 sewer dumps. Sites are adequate in length and shaded. We will return as often as possible. - codgette

This is a pretty park set along the Snake River. There are two loops. The lower loop did not appear to have any sites with views of the river, while the upper loop, set on a bluff above the river, does have sites with views. The sites are spacious and open with gravel pads. Although the park is open year round, the water may be turned off in the colder months due to freezing temperatures. The water was on when we were there in mid-March, but we woke up to a frozen water hose! This park had a complicated fee structure which we were left to puzzle out on our own as we never saw the camp host or ranger. - BruceandKathyWA

We stayed 2 nights in this park. We had a spacious & level gravel back-in site. We enjoyed the Oregon Trail History Center very much. It is free & very informative. It's open Tuesday through Saturday until 4 PM.
Due to an ill family member, we needed a comfortable place to stay for a couple of days. The park was nearly full on Saturday when we arrived & there was a large group of 4-5 rigs that detracted from the peace & quiet.
I think the larger issue for us was the cost of this park. The lower loop (which is much newer) is closed for the winter. This leaves only the upper loop available for camping. The water is shut off for the winter at each site & in the main bath/shower house. There is a small building just inside the entrance that has one toilet each for men & women & no showers. So we paid $29.00/night for a nice site & an electrical hook-up. If we had arrived Monday through Thursday, the cost per night would have been $17.19.
We researched this park beforehand & anticipated spending $30/night but we did not anticipate that there would be no water hook-up at our site and no showers available OR that we would pay nearly 50% less if we had arrived Monday through Thursday. The Idaho State Park web site did not contain this information & their web site was not mobile-friendly. However, given all this, we would choose to stay here again. The location is close to I-84 & the park is lovely. - dawnbmoore

Small park adjacent to Carmela Winery and golf course, which runs along Snake River. Level sites, shade trees. Sites were reasonably spaced. Staff was very friendly. Winery had wine tastings, as well as a restaurant with a bar. Campsite was close to historic Oregon Trail info and 3 Island Crossing where pioneers crossed the Snake River on the way to Oregon. Stayed an extra day just to do sightseeing. Would stay here again. - oldguyinrv

This is a standard RV park. The things that make it stand out however are the restaurant, excellent golf (9/18 holes, well groomed course), and winery - good choices and some very good selections. Added bonus is the history of the area. - DennisK

The campground has pull through sites available. The people were friendly and accommodating. The electrical service in the park was installed in the 30s or 40s. We observed very wide swings in the voltage as we turned on various appliances. We only able to run one air conditioner and had turn that off to run the microwave . Although Wi-Fi is available, it is $6.99 per day . It was more cost effective to use our Verizon MiFi. The park is very well maintained. The are grassy areas around each site. No picnic tables, shower houses, or other services. It was a great place to overnight. We will use this park again, hopefully for a few days so we can enjoy the restaurant, golf, and vineyards. - SunnyHoward

We liked this state park very much. It is located out in the middle of nowhere so shopping requires some planning. There really is no place to park at the Visitor's Center with your RV. We had a reservation so check in was not required. The campground loops are located a mile or so from the Visitor's Center. We stayed in the new section which is wide open with few trees and is much better for a big rig. Site was level and utilities adequate. Very nice dump station with easy access. Did not check out or use the bathhouse. Verizon cell/mifi worked fine. We arrived on a Saturday for 3 nights and by Sunday, we were the only campers in our loop. For those with military benefits, Mountain Home AFB is about a 25 mile drive and has a nice BX/Commissary. We would stay here again if in the area. - roadking

Very well maintained, clean fully functioning facilities. A bit eerie for us pulling in late to be the only campers, but high summer on a weekday is off season as it is the desert and hot. Great amenities with 2 lakes with fish, an Observatory, programs available on weekends, and a decent little visitor's center. Then there is the amazing 3 plus dunes it is named for. The kids went "sand boarding" and had a great time on the dunes on rented boards. Good facility and a gem of a find for our "breather day" - BC_fly_fisher

We stayed at the Broken Wheel campground, which is the older of the two. The advantage is there are some trees that provide limited shade. It was 100 degrees when we were there. A little pricey for what you get. The bathrooms and showers were adequate as were the connections. The picnic table was full of bird poop. There are sites with shelters for the picnic tables. If you are going to visit, visit when the observatory program is available. This is worth the trip. Also, go on the scorpion hunt with the park ranger, at night. They are luminescent with UV light. My kids loved it! Do not go in the dead of summer - too hot to enjoy the dunes. A bit too pricey. - silver2007

Nice little RV park for the price. I would give it a 10 if it had cable and wifi. But we did get several OTA channels. The cow smell is quite strong at times. - lb0456

This park is a gem! Nice long pull thrus. I have a 35ft trailer pulled by Ford Excursion. Did not have to unhook and still had 10 more feet of space left. Very well kept park. All the rigs look well kept. Park is quiet but seems to be in close proximity to a gun range as can hear lots of firing close by. Wi-fi works well from my space #34. Park is about 10 miles south of I-84 so highway noise is nill except for local traffic on US30. Will stay here again if in the area. - A Wedding

We stayed here 2 nights and the park looked full, but on second glance there were a lot of long term campers that were not occupied when we were there. All sites are widely spaced, long, gravel pull-throughs that were mostly level with a grassy area between each space. There were many trees that offered some shade. No fire rings. The restrooms, showers and laundry room were a bit run-down, but very clean. The Wi-Fi in site 31 was excellent the entire time we were there - right next to the repeater - we were able to stream a movie. However, I am guessing not many people were using it at the time. No cable, but a few air stations. Cell service was excellent with 3 bars of AT&T. Downside to this park is its proximity to the highway. There was a lot of road noise. - ALbums

Stayed 3 nights in a 45 ft. motorcoach. Quiet and very attractive campground. Really long site. Bathroom/shower really nice and clean. Hard to improve on anything. Excellent for overnight or longer stay. This place is really a 10 .... really. - BruceVero

What an unexpected gem, recommended by RV friends. As close to perfect as we have been to after a long journey. Paved streets & sites, long pull through for our 42ft rig. Good services, though didn't use their WiFi. Definitely would like to return & stay longer. - nw explorers

This park is very nice. The spaces are concrete pads with nice green lawns. The park is well maintained.
The site was a welcome relieve for the night after driving all day in hot conditions. I would recommend this park to all travels.
We have placed this park on our must visit again list. - MIKEY750

If you like elbow room, private grassy area, level sites, quiet and a location close to Thousand Springs State parks, this is the place for you. It is right off I84 but very quiet and only 30 miles from Twin Falls BUT all the state park sites are very close! The park does not have amenities and a little bare bones but the staff is friendly and accommodating and the sites are nice! Price is terrific!
We camped here in a 36' MH and would definitely return. - redhead11

Truly a Campground and we love it. We had time to kill so we stayed two nights. Located right along the on ramp for eastbound I-84 but set back and very quiet. All wide Pull thru sites, full hook-ups 50amps on back sites. Had plenty of room for our 43' Motor Home and toad. Partial on front. lots of trees but not heavily wooded. Satellite was kind of iffy because of some trees on the south end of the FHU sites, however owner said it was ok to turn around the wrong way if we wanted to get a better signal. Lots of singing birds. No WiFi .Cafe wasn't open. - CookieRV

This is a good over night stop. If owner not there working on trucks, call for prices as Passport America is $20 and Good Sam is $24 for power and water sites (all you need for one night). There is 50 amp ful hookups if you need. No Wi-Fi but AT&T and Verizon work well. Trees line up so satellite reception is OK. Interstate noise not an issue. All pull-throughs. Will stay as a stopover again. - TedandJan
