Nice campground on a large grassy area. Sites fairly large and easy to get into, pull-thru's and back ins. Some trees, but little shade or privacy. Water hookup only, electrical as of now is OTS, but price is reduced accordingly. There is a dump station. Each site has a picnic table, fire pit, and raised grill. Shower was OK, and flush toilets. Cabins are also available. Cell signal fine. They offer pay WiFi, $3.00 per day, cheaper for longer periods. It worked good except a short period where it would not connect. Beautiful lake, good bird watching, and a disc golf course. We were there mid to late September, very few people, quiet. Flies were horrible. If you are 62 or older rate is reduced Mon. - Thurs at $14.54. We camped at Lake Walcott State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Oh what a lovely park. We were there in what I guess would be the off season (mid September) so it was very quiet and peaceful during the week; the weekend was a bit more crowded. The town of Rupert is about 10 miles away, which is a catch 22, I guess so plan ahead. Also, the office wasn't staffed all that much during the day. Given all that, the price was well worth anything that may be considered a "down side". I loved it here, and we would certainly return. We camped at Lake Walcott State Park in a Motorhome.

It is not a bad park, but not spectacular either. It's out of Rupert 16 miles so get groceries first. We stayed early in the season while passing through therefore the water was not turned on yet, nor was the dump station open. It's a quiet lake with a lot of walking and bike trails as well as a National Wildlife Refuge area. There is fishing only, no swimming. We camped at Lake Walcott State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice park with beautiful lawns and trees. Some sites offer shade but the majority of the trees next to the sites aren't tall enough to cast much shade. Sites are level, they all have a fire ring that you can BBQ on and a pedestal BBQ too. There is no privacy between sites so get ready to wave hello to your neighbor! We had cellphone, Aircard (Verizon), and satellite reception. Good power service and very good water pressure. The town of Rupert is about 21 miles away if you need to buy anything. There's a Super Walmart there along with chain grocery stores. If you are 62 or older this park is offered at 50% off Mon. - Thurs. We would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Lake Walcott State Park in a Motorhome.

Lake Walcott State Park is adjacent to the 20,699 acre Minidoka wildlife refuge 11 miles northeast of Rupert, Idaho. It was built by the Civilian Convervation Corps in the 1930's. It has huge grassy day use areas shaded by big old cottonwood trees. Also, lakeside picnic areas, disc golf and separate tenting areas. The small RV area consists of 23 hookup sites, 14 tents and 2 cabins. RV sites are exposed, paved, and look rather new with good space between sites. Very clean facilities with separate shower rooms that offered plenty of hot water. Sites were a mix of pull through and back in; all were large and easy to navigate. Some can handle up to 60' rigs. The centerpiece of the 65 acre Park is the lake, quite large and open to boating and fishing. However, no swimming is permitted. This place is very popular as a venue for family reunions and can fill up. We visited on a weekday and there were only 5-6 other rigs in the park but the reservation board showed a full house for the weekend. We camped at Lake Walcott State Park in a Travel Trailer.
