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

New owners Nov. 2014. Working hard to revitalize. Owners very nice and accommodating. Sites were long enough so didn't have to unhitch and only slight leveling. Good water pressure and LOTS of shade. That was appreciated since it was high 90's. Would definitely stay here again. - rvicsvol

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

We are of a differing opinion of most reviews. We camped in our 45 foot motorhome and found the roads and spaces to be narrow. Yes, the campground "looks" nice enough, but the fact the roads were neglected was enough for us to never want to return. By neglect, the gravel roads were VERY MUCH in need of additional gravel. There were simply too many areas where gravel rock was missing and it was simply dirt. It was a constant dust storm when other vehicles drive in and out of the campground. No excuse for the poor road maintenance and needless dust storm. Could not enjoy sitting out under the pretty trees, also could not leave anything out on grass (campground policy) due to fact water every night. The nightly watering also gets on your coach and left hard water stains. Would never return and cannot recommend. - God Bless America

Long and spacious gravel pull-through sites with large grassy sitting area.
Lots of shade, beautiful! Only noise we heard was some US-30 road noise in the early morning. During the day and evening rather quit.
And yes, you can hear cows in this farming area ...
Wi-Fi excellent! - Bluesbirdy

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

We stopped coming here about 5 years ago because we wanted a park that had a pool during our summer travels through southern Idaho. Now that they have added a pool, we decided to stay again. In addition to the pool, another change is that many of the trees that were not an issue 5-10 years ago are now blocking satellite access at many sites. If you want a satellite friendly site during the summer, call ahead because this park is fairly full every night. The park now has a lot of of extended stay customers. There are now over 100 sites per their map and it is about 50/50 between pull-through and back-in (many of which are also back-to-back). All are full hookups with 60 channel cable TV. Unfortunately, their Wi-Fi provider is TengoInternet. It worked OK, but I am not a fan. Also bad news is the aforementioned pool. The setup is nice but they went cheap on size. I put the size at 12'x25' with 3' depth at both ends and 5' in the middle. Half a dozen kids will dominate a pool this small. In fact, when I first got in a middle aged princess was floating around aimlessly on her raft making it impossible to even swim a 20' lap. Because the entry steps at each end are not well defined and only one end has a railing, the pool is dangerous to enter. There is a small playground next to the pool. The biggest problem I had was with their sprinkler system. Before it was even dark (around 8:30 P.M.), I could not access the driver's side of my RV because the sprinklers had already come on. About 9 P.M. I exited the RV and was sprayed by a sprinkler right by my door. It is just plain inconsiderate (and stupid) to have the sprinklers come on when people are likely to still be out and about. I saw no sign of any recycling. The staff I dealt with were friendly and helpful (at least as well as work campers and employees can be). This park could have be great with some smarter managerial decisions (pool size, TengoInternet, sprinkler system, etc.). - Jerry S

Very clean; wide, paved interior roads. Easy parking. Very quiet, friendly staff. Led us to our site. Plenty of room/didn't have to unhitch. Nice pool and hot tub. - GmaB

Our third stay at this great place. As in the past: Large, spacious sites; excellent access to park and sites; friendly, helpful staff; excellent utilities; immaculate, individual restrooms/showers; impeccable grounds with plenty of grass and many sites with good shade; nice pool, very good off-leash, grassy dog run. Outstanding value. Rate shown was for 7 day stay. - whodat

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

Gravel/lawn site, but the back in sites are old paved and fairly level- least #7. Good amounts of TV channels, WiFi a little on the slow side. I can hear the trains maybe 1/2 mile from us. This place seems to be right in town with houses all around it. - 1200bruce

Well manicured and easy to find park. Plenty of grass. A very park like setting. Picnic table with grass and trees at each site. Level concrete slabs. They have two on site Wi-Fi towers but I was unable to connect. Single, private showers. Laundry and cable. Leash free pet park is being built. They are also expanding for more sites. Quiet time is 9pm to 9am. Most all sites are pull thru and all sites have a lamp post. We would stay here again. - EggerMar
