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. We camped at Three Island Crossing State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

The park is situated on an important Oregon Trail site. It was here that the pioneers had to decide whether to cross the snake river to the north via a dangerous ford or stay on the south side of the river to continue their journey. The park has a nice interpretive center that tells the story.

Easy back-in site. Well maintained grounds and within walking distance to a winery. Only one other camper, but the park ranger stopped by to welcome us and collect fees. The lower loop is not open in winter. We camped at Three Island Crossing State Park in a Travel Trailer.

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. We camped at Three Island Crossing State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Glenns Ferry is a small historic town but we found everything on our grocery list at the Southside Market, just across the railroad tracks. Across the street from the market is an ice cream shop that also serves food. Unfortunately, we did not stop there.

Have stayed here numerous times and always enjoy. The park was completely full this time (weekend) but the electricity held up well. Water pressure was a bit low but worked fine. We stayed in the lower section this time and in a double site, cost was twice the 27.00 rate, but was worth it due to the crowd. We camped at Three Island Crossing State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Rate reflexes Senior discount which is available during middle of week. Site was spacious, asphalt and very level. No sewer but 2 dump station. Restrooms and showers very clean. No cable but plenty of local channels. Pay for WIFI. Very relaxing and quiet. We camped at Three Island Crossing State Park in a Tent.

This is a great campground in the middle of the high desert. We stayed in the lower loop where the pads are all blacktop. The pads in the upper loop are gravel. The park offers 30-amp service and water at each site and there are numerous companion sites available. Each site has fire rings and picnic tables. Firewood is available at the host site. The Crossings Winery is right next door and offers wine tastings and a decent restaurant serving lunch and dinner. There is a walking path between the campground and the winery. Wi-fi is available but we used our Verizon hotspot and had a pretty good 4G signal. Most of the grounds in the campground are lawn grass and the crew keeps it pretty green. We camped at Three Island Crossing State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Being a state park the amenities are limited to that. The grounds are well maintained and clean. This is a great "early season" destination. The Oregon trail interpretive center is small but well done. We have stayed in the cabins many times and they are good for what they are. The food is great and for the price the proportions are huge. My recomendation is get a companion site. This give you twice the "patio" space. We camped at Three Island Crossing State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

The snake river is close by and there are many walking paths. Also located within walking distance is the Carmella winery and golf course. They have a nice restaurant and bar. One of my favorite places to have dinner and by far my favorite breakfast place is the Oregon trail cafe in G

Glenns Ferry.

This is a great place to stay any time of year. The sites are well maintained and there is power and water. The best antenna reception is from the upper loop. There is a great Frisbee golf course on site. The campground is next to the river and there are ample trails.

The winery next door has a nice restaurant with great food. The wine is pretty good as well and all within walking distance of your campsite. I like the companion sites but they cost extra. None of the sites are bad.

Sprinklers are run during the week in sites that are not occupied. The restrooms are clean with flush toilets and hot showers. The week we stayed there were many very friendly people in the campground. The only down side is the drive through Glenns Ferry. The roads suck!

Otherwise we love this campground and will definitely return. We camped at Three Island Crossing State Park in a Travel Trailer.

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.

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.

$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.

This was a stop on our way from Crater Lake NP to Yellowstone. It was a pleasant surprise. The sites were well-spaced, lots of trees, gorgeous lawn. It was an oasis in an arid landscape. We camped at Three Island Crossing State Park in a Travel Trailer.

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.

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.

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.
