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
If you really want to take your big rig out of town, this is the place. It’s on a small hill overlooking a beautiful a valley surrounded by mountains with the only sounds coming from the wildlife around the park but to get there you must be willing to drive 2.5 miles down a very dusty dirt road. The road is hard packed and fairly smooth so the drive will be easy but you should unhook your toad or it will be totally covered in a thick layer of fine dirt. Once there you can either blow off the dirt or use a California duster that they will loan you. We took our 40ft there and settled into a nice site with plenty of room for slides and awning. All campsites are back-ins with a picnic table on a concrete slab. You park on level gravel sites with lots of grass around and some large trees. The campsites are a mix of 30 and 50amp, vary in length and tree cover so plan accordingly. There is no Sprint service in the area and they offer no cable or WiFi. The owners and camp workers are very friendly and helpful. Bathrooms, showers, laundry and pool were all clean and well maintained. They also offer a weekend breakfast and potluck dinner. Your closest resupply town is Mountain Home about 25 miles away. - Road Train
This park appears to be run on a shoestring budget. Everything is orderly, but appeared to be rundown and didn't appear to be updated or maintained well. Management was very helpful and friendly. The temp. was in 90's, and we were charged extra for 50 amp. No cell service or wi-fi. After arriving over the very dusty 3 miles of gravel roads our rig was pretty dirty and no to clean it. During our stay the park was evacuated due to a out of control grass fire, making the return to Mountain Home impassable. The view is great, but it's a little out of the way and could have been a disaster. We would not stay here again. - otomobl
Outstanding friendly park. Management were wonderful and very helpful. The park is out of the way about 30 miles from Mountain Home and the last 3 miles are over a dirt road. My coach was a dusty mess by the time we got there, BUT! I have to say the stay was worth it. We found it so nice, quiet and friendly that we stayed an extra day. We will be sure to stay here again and again. - Ken Lee
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
This campground appears to have been a city park campground that has been somewhat restructured. The sites are smaller, with only a few pull-throughs available for longer rigs. The directions on 2 GPS systems were not successful in finding this location, as the streets in Mountain Home have a confusing numbering and directional "system". Numerous full-time units. Small dog fenced-in area. There is a Good Sam park that appeared nicer...we just didn't do the research first. We would not choose to stay here again. - gbburgess
Great park. all the roads are paved and the sites long, wide and concrete. The hook-ups are in the middle with a white fence separating them form the next site. Well done park. The staff is very friendly and helpful. They have propane on site and will take your bottle and have it filled. It is really a very nice park. We always stay here when are in the area. - JDR
This park was easy to find - i found them with GPS. This is a "model RV park" that ALL other parks should take note of and learn from. Beautiful spacious grassy and treed sites - with proper "ample spacing between" them. I appreciate the bonus white picket fence protecting/hiding sewer connections. I am tired of stepping out of my rig to end up basically on top of a neighbors sewer line. I came for a night...stayed for a week! I met the owner/operators while i was signing in and they are quite gems. This park even has a new LARGE [and a LITERAL] Dog run. I have a large dog and she is able to run around and expel some of that 'stupid' energy acquired while we're driving.
I had to try the showers, though I usually use my own, but they were amazing with private rooms, spotless, and enough of them to allow good chance of finding fresh clean unused one. Great laundry facilities as well - never had to wait for a machine.
Just wish this park were further south and i would stay the entire winter - 6 months. - livin4RV
This park was a pleasure. Easy access, long pull throughs, well placed utilities, friendly owners, this place has it all. The showers/restrooms looked nice from the outside, but we never use them. Only missed a 10 because the Tengo internet is very poor and was a constant struggle. But we certainly would stay here again. - jOHNONTHEROAD
