This is a very nice state park with two main camping areas. Good interior roads. Restrooms clean as were showers. Sites were ample size although a few sites may be a bit small for big rigs. Lots of room between sites. Lots of trees for shade and plenty of grass throughout the park. Awesome Interpretive center in park illustrating the Snake River Ferry crossing and associated history. Staff/host friendly and helpful. Price was for seniors with annual state park pass. Did not try the wifi as my Verizon signal was strong. Enjoyed an excellent dinner at the winery restaurant next door (easy walking distance - footpath to park a good idea if you spend time in the tasting room!). 50 amp and sewer hookup are all that's needed to make this place perfect. Will definitely come back for another visit. We camped at Three Island Crossing State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

$16.66 per night (this was a 50% senior discount off the usual $23.32 per night that is offered Monday - Thursday plus a $5 per day vehicle entry fee) was for a level asphalt pad site with 30 amp electric, water, picnic table, and fire ring. The campground is in a desert-like setting but has been planted with deciduous trees and each site has a grassy area making it seem not so dry. This lovely campground is located near the Snake River where Oregon Trail travelers used the islands to accomplish the river crossing. Cabins are available but there are no primitive sites. The park staff and campground hosts were very friendly and helpful. Bicycles are permitted on park roads and trails but beware of the goat-head thorns that will puncture tires unmercifully. The campground is located not far off I-84 but there was no traffic noise, only the occasional train passing by in town. The town of Glenns Ferry is a couple of miles away and has a couple grocery stores. AT&T cell service is great. We used our Milliencom jetpack for internet access as we received two bars of 4G LTE. Park Wi-Fi is available but we did not investigate it. There were seven OTA TV stations. We camped at Three Island Crossing State Park in a Motorhome.

Rate reflects weekday senior discount, plus $5 vehicle fee. This is a quiet and well-kept state park with easy interstate access. The upper loop (lowered numbered sites) had a good view of a valley and lake, but was more crowded. Great landscaping, grass and tree cover on both loops. Bathrooms were clean. No park staff on duty when we arrived, and picking a site was slightly confusing. Reservation slips for the coming weeks were already clipped to site posts under the "Reserved" plaque, giving the appearance that almost every spot was taken for the current night. We finally picked a spot where the reserved dates were still several nights away. Traffic cones reading "closed for irrigation" were also in front of several of the sites but we never saw sprinklers come on. We camped at Three Island Crossing State Park in a Motorhome.

A gem off of I-84. We overnighted here and the campground was not busy. Spacious, well laid out sites with paved level pads. The lawns were well maintained and numerous dumpsters were located around the site. The dump station was easy to access and use. My only complaint is the State Park Wi-Fi system. You could not find out what the rates were until you registered. In these days of information theft and re-selling of information by web sites, a basic price list should be available before you divulge information to these services. Wake Up Idaho State Parks, you can do better. We camped at Three Island Crossing State Park in a Motorhome.

This park was a very nice surprise. We were in the trailside loop, which was very uncrowded during the week. There is lots of open space that provides a park-like atmosphere. It is within walking distance to the Carmela Winery and restaurant (soon to change its name to Crossings). The wine and food were great. We paid a little extra for a companion site which gave us extra room but even the regular sites were large. The volunteers buzzed around like bees and all of the facilities were well maintained and clean. We will definitely be back. Just as a note. My Verizon Smart Phone worked fine. My iPad, which uses AT&T, was useless. Idaho state parks now offers a $29 Wi-Fi package which is good for a year at any state park. The park ranger told me that most of the Idaho parks have the service. We camped at Three Island Crossing State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Third time at this park. Great wayside if you have to spend a lot of time on I84. Two levels, sometimes the upper level is more windy but has better views of the Snake River. Nice lawns and lots of shade. Elec and water at site. Sites level and paved. Tables and fire pits at all sites and the park is well maintained. Two dump stations in park. Cell phone reception is good and a park wifi is available at a reasonable cost. Some sites close together but most have decent spacing. Quite a few double sites with water and power, but you may need extensions for at least on of the RV's. We will stay here again. We camped at Three Island Crossing State Park in a Travel Trailer.

What a beautiful state park location. Lots of room between sites. Grass and trees abound. This park is located along the Snake River and offers a peaceful setting for the traveler. Next door to the park is the Carmela Vineyards if you would like to visit their winery. Park staff was most helpful and courteous. Unless a site is specifically marked as reserved for that night it is available on a first come basis. A gem in the Gem state. We camped at Three Island Crossing State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Wonderful oasis in the middle of dry Idaho overlooking the Snake River at popular crossing on the old Oregon Trail. On a bluff so was windy and hot when we were there in July. 100+ but nonetheless one of our favorites in our 4,700 mile summer trek. Spacious, level enough with trees in a comfortable, historic setting with an interpretive center on site and a winery/restaurant nearby. Would have loved to stay longer, but had to head back home. Maybe next time. We camped at Three Island Crossing State Park in a Motorhome.

The nightly rate included a $5 fee of some sort since we didn't have an Idaho parks pass. This is another lovely state park. We didn't have a reservation, but there were plenty of sites available for the one night we wanted to stay. There are two loops and we stayed in the upper loop. We didn't check out the lower loop, so comments relate only to the upper loop. There were some low hanging branches along the road to the site, but nothing that would do damage. Park is big rig friendly, with most sites being paved back-ins. We had no problem leveling. Electric (30 amp) and water were at the sites, but no sewer. There was a dump station. Sprint service worked well. The park was probably the quietest and most peaceful park we've visited. We camped at Three Island Crossing State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a very nice Idaho State Park. We stayed on the upper level. The sites are farther apart from each other on the upper level, which we prefer. Showers and restrooms were clean, but keep in mind they are government facilities. Showers spray water everywhere so be cautious of this extra feature! This park sits along the Snake River so you can have a view if you prefer. Seems like weekends are very busy just based on the amount of reserved tags on site markers. Monday through Thursday seniors get a break on the price. We did buy a Idaho State Park Pass that was $40, but that saves on state park daily entrance fee.

After five years of RVing this is our very favorite campground. Sites are large and shady and the scenery is great. Utilities all function properly. Campground is divided into an upper and a lower section. All sites appear large enough. The ones in the lower section may be a bit larger, but do not offer the long range view. Plenty of campground staff to look out after things and keep the grounds tidy. Campground host sells wood and ice. Very nice Oregon Trail interpretive center is on the park grounds and you can still see the wagon wheel ruts that define the trail. It often gets windy in the afternoons even after a calm start to the day, so be careful to take in your awnings. We will definitely stay here again. We camped at Three Island Crossing State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This a beautiful park. It's almost like camping on a high-end golf course. Beautiful lawns at each site, with huge trees for shade. We were in the upper loop, so had an expansive view of the basin and the Snake River. Restrooms were spotless, even though the upper loop was pretty full. The Pioneer Museum in the park is very interesting. We'll stay here again. We camped at Three Island Crossing State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Another lovely Idaho state park on the Snake River. The upper campground is closer to the water (which surprised us) and had even MORE shade than the lower one. Wonderful historical information about the pioneer's Glenns Ferry crossing but center was closed Mon & Tues when we were here. Not much to do except relax; town is small, old, and run down. Weather EXTREMELY hot (mid 100's) so we left a day early. Mornings are beautiful. Hundreds (maybe thousands) of gnats came through our screens at night when we had the lights on in the RV; had to spray with outdoor fogger to kill them. On second night, we didn't open windows until we turned the lights out. Probably would not stay here again. We camped at Three Island Crossing State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a very nice state park with level, clean, sites, helpful camp host, picnic table, and fire pit. Enjoyed the Oregon Trail Interpretive museum within walking distance to the park. Senior rate is half price Monday-Thursday. We camped at Three Island Crossing State Park in a Motorhome.
