Outstanding overnight stay, close to Hwy 15. Water and 50 amp at each site. Dump station and entry road easy to maneuver with our 39 ft motor home. Sites level pea gravel with well groomed grass between sites. Trees are situated to provide shade but some need trimming as their annual foliage is too close in some sites. Bathrooms spotless with hot water in showers.

4 bars with Verizon, good satellite in our site #12. Model airplane air strip, replica general store, and barn for children and young at heart adults. Disc course throughout park. Schedule for sites at entry. Take an available site, pay by check and place in slotted door. Young outstanding family lives in home within park. They work very hard to keep grass well groomed and bathrooms spotless.Very helpful and accommodating. Nicest we have ever dealt with. We camped at North Bingham County Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Good grocery, Ace and Camping World in Shelley. Idaho Falls 8 miles north with additional good shopping.

This is the perfect overnight stop right off I-15. It's not a resort, but large sites on the edge of a large, quiet county park in the country. Good value for the price. I would definitely stay here again. We camped at North Bingham County Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

This is a great spot to spend the night. Only one other camp site taken. Very quiet. Lots of grass and places to walk the dog and stretch our legs. Campground had been winterized so only electric was available (although I was able to dump my grey tanks at the dump station. I will definitely stay there again. We camped at North Bingham County Recreation Area in a Fifth Wheel.

This delightful park is only a mile or two from I-15, 7 miles south of Idaho Falls. The park is operated by the county and has 12 sites. All sites are spacious, pull through on pea-stone gravel with grass in between, and have electric and water. There are trees for partial shade during the day. The single shower in the mens room was private, clean, and spacious with plenty of hot water. During our Friday overnight stay we were one of four campers in the campground. We will definitely keep this place in mind in the future when traveling on this route. We camped at North Bingham County Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

What a nice surpride! Green, level sites and only 4 other people here. Tennis courts, basketball, play equipment, frisbee course, a beautiful river to cool off in. Lots of shade trees and very quiet. No problem getting satellite. We would come back again. We camped at North Bingham County Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

Great for an overnight stop, close to I-15 and Idaho Falls. We were surprised to find only 3 spots available at noon, but it was July 2nd. Camping area is close to road, but not busy. Park is well kept and has interesting exhibits walk around and see. We would stay again if coming through this area. We camped at North Bingham County Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

The park is right along side the road, but coming from the west we did not see the sign until it was too late to turn in. About 1 1/2 miles from the freeway. A mile and a half to town and a U turn and what a nice little park it is. There are 4 or 5 sites long enough for most big rigs and adequate turn /swing room. We stayed in #12. There are trees planted which will need trimming in the near future at some of the sites. There was a little road noise,but not annoying. We would stay again.

You pay at the entrance by dropping cash or a check in an envelope. We picked our site first. We never saw any park employee. The width of the gravel on the sites needs to be increased. There is not enough to place our wheels on. Generally the RV sites and the park itself is clean and very well maintained. However, some sites need to have nearby trees trimmed back. The sites are located close to the road. But, traffic decreased overnight. We camped at North Bingham County Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

Nicely maintained park. I had no problem with the width of the sites. There was only one other camper the night we stayed, and had the place to ourselves really. Nicely mowed area with lots of room for the kids to run. It was weird not to see an employee ever, you just drop the money in the slot in the door. It is a nice place for an overnighter (that's what we did), and they have a free dump station for campers. I will stay here again. We camped at North Bingham County Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.

A very nice, quiet county park with level pull-through sites. Electric and water hook-ups at site with an easily accessible dump station nearby. Managers live on-site and takes excellent care of the park which is used for picnics, disc golf, and occasional weddings by locals as well as visiting campers. We stayed in the area to visit friends and also used it as a base for day trips to Craters of the Moon and Grand Teton National Park. Shelley is a nice small town with a good grocery store and several restaurants and Idaho Falls is only 7 miles up the road for more extensive shopping, dining, movie theaters, etc. We would definitely stay here again.

This is a nice little place to stay along the way, just below Idaho Falls on I-15. Lots and lots of grass and lawn areas, grass between sites. Nice and quiet, I hear a bit of road noise but not bad. Water and elect on site, dump a few feet away. There is a small historical park sort of adjacent to the campground and a little airfield for model planes. I think it's a good place for the money, no complaints. Rest rooms are clean, and there is also a dry camp area for around $5. It's certainly as good as the $32 park we stayed at last night, so no complaints from me. We camped at North Bingham County Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

The first night we pulled in the water had not been turned on so we were not charged. Good 50 amp power. Easy long pull throughs. Clean restrooms with one very private shower. Tables but no fire rings. Very easy access to the dump station. Nice bike trail about 1/4 mile down the road that leads into Shelly. Close to Idaho Falls for shopping. We were the only people there for the week but were told that it gets VERY busy in the summer. There are tennis courts and playground nearby and a small horse arena in the back. The park is right along the Snake River but the CG sets back a little. We camped at North Bingham County Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

Very clean, with well groomed landscaping. An onsite manager. We made a reservation, which the manager lost: so that was a glitch in the plans. Manager accommodated us onsite because of his error. Make a reservation and confirm it. Park was packed when we were here, so I don't think this is a drop-in location. Has level pull through sites with grassy areas and a table at every site. Close to the highway (1 mile) but far enough away that it is very quiet. Beautiful surrounding area: nice homes and farmland. We camped at North Bingham County Recreation Area in a Fifth Wheel.

"Self service", just put your money in an envelope. In the country, but close enough to town and a nice grocery store. The laundromat in town is filthy. Campground clean, no amenities. Okay for a night, not my idea of a destination. Sits on very noisy country road. We camped at North Bingham County Recreation Area in a Fifth Wheel.
