A picturesque, small footprint campground. A bit pricey though. Barely big rig friendly. Gravel roadways and sites. Typical KOA privacy. Nice fencing, pathways, and mature trees/shrubs throughout. Very engaging owners. Good wifi. Nice pool. Would think this sets the standard for KOA campgrounds. Good for an overnight stay. Definitely a destination campground as well. Would stay again. We camped at Montpelier Creek KOA in a Motorhome.
This is a great park. There is a stream running through the camp that adds great aesthetic feel. The cabins are comfortable and the owners are awesome. We would stay at this camp again and again. It is very family friendly and has great amenities including a nice pool, pavilion, and play areas. The store is well stocked and Montpelier is nearby. In 30 years of camping this is our families favorite place to gather for reunions and just plain fun. We camped at Montpelier Creek KOA in a Cabin.
Tips for other Campers:
Reservoir fishing is nearby and the stream on site has trout as well.
This KOA keeps getting better and better. You should plan your travels through Idaho just to stay here, especially if you are on your way to or from Yellowstone or the Tetons, or following the Oregon Trail. The park is easy to get to, the sites are wide and the trees are trimmed up. They have a great fenced in dog run that you can actually throw a ball in and exercise your dog. There is a nice walking trail too. There was a family catching fish in the creek which was fun to watch. The workers and owners are friendly and helpful. Most sites are satellite friendly. The Wi-Fi worked well and given the remote location we felt lucky to have it. There is excellent Verizon and AT&T service in the park as well; and the cable TV had a clear picture.

About two miles outside a small town so it was very quiet. Season just beginning so only a few other campers. A moderately small campground but it has all the KOA features. I would stay again. We camped at Montpelier Creek KOA in a Motorhome.

We stayed here one weeknight in early August and had a fairly level, gravel, FHU, pull-through site. The cable TV was only 24 channels (another cable system that does not have Comedy Central). Our site was roof satellite friendly, but many are not. Of the listed 50 sites, only 34 are for RVs (21 FHU and 13 W&E). The rest of the sites are for tents, cabins, and tee-pees. The Wi-Fi network was OK at our site. The pool was refreshing and there is playground equipment for the kids. The nature walk is nothing more than a 100' path through the trees and bushes along the creek. I have no idea why other reviewers rave about this "nature trail". The laundry is OK but the bathrooms are barely adequate for a park with tent sites and pop up customers. The staff were pleasant and friendly. While the is a nice park, it does have its' negatives: the price, limited FHU and/or big rig friendly sites, limited cable and satellite access, and no recycling that I could find.

I love this RV park! It is a real gem for the "Gem State", especially in this part of Idaho. It has to be the best KOA in SE Idaho hands down. My biggest and only complaint is the price, but when you compare it to others, I feel it is fair. We try to get to this campground at least twice a year, and we enjoy our trip every time. This year, we stayed here and drove over to Bear Lake to watch a play at the Pickleville Playhouse. With Bear Lake so close, this is a great place to stay and play! The campground is clean and well kept. The pool is small but nice, certainly unexpected way out in the mountains. They are limited on big rig spots, but for a quiet place to stay while traveling through, this is the perfect option. Oh, and the Oregon Trail Center is a great visit in Montpelier. Upon getting ready to leave, I noticed I had a low tire on my motorhome. I ran in to ask where I could get air on a Sunday, and the staff quickly brought out an air compressor and I was on the road within minutes, free of charge and worry. Montpelier is a small town, and this KOA is not a mega-KOA. It is a journey KOA and it is very well kept and maintained. I totally recommend it and hope you give it a try!

First class park and staff/owners! Lots of activities going on in a lovely park setting. This is the best KOA or any private park we have stayed at. We camped at Montpelier Creek KOA in a Travel Trailer.
The best KOA we have ever camped in. We generally don't use KOA, but would definitely return here. It is darling and well kept. The owners are very nice and helpful. There is a stream with a walking path that is delightful.The spots are level with plenty of room for big rigs. This place is a winner. We camped at Montpelier Creek KOA in a Motorhome.

Rate reflects a military discount which was appreciated. Very clean park. Restrooms/showers were as clean as any I've seen. Large, easily accessed, level spot on gravel with a lawn area/picnic table and fire ring. No longer have a dog but the off leash pet area looked very nice. Owners are very friendly and helpful. Led to spot and owner cleaned picnic table while we set up. Not much going on in town, but a trip to Bear Lake was worth it for the views. We camped at Montpelier Creek KOA in a Fifth Wheel.
Great little park. No real sign off the highway, but once we realized where it was, it was great. Nice couple owns and operates it. Nicely remodeled, hasn't lost the charm, but up to date. Gravel sites were level, everything was good! Nice pool! Pretty little stream and path through it. We would go back in heart beat. We camped at Montpelier Creek KOA in a Fifth Wheel.
Great spot, super quiet. Not your typical by the highway, next to the train tracks KOA. Easy to find and close to the Oregon Trail museum. Site was very nice and the owners were super! Pet friendly place, has a nice nature walk to take the dog into. Wish we could have stayed longer, would send friends or go back myself again in the future.
