We called and talked to a nice lady, seems they live on site but we never did see them. We put our check in a mail slot at the entrance building that we never saw manned. This is a county park with 12 FHU sites. They are plenty long and level. Lots of campers pulled in to use the dumpstatation which we could see but did not bother us. The anti siphon device on our water leaked, I reported it but it was not fixed while we were here. Park was quiet at night. We would stay here again. We camped at North Bingham County Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

We have relatives in the area and have used and commented on this park previously. The previous positive comments on this little gem of a park are spot on. We were very surprised to find an empty space on a Holiday weekend. We have never met the caretakers but have talked to a very nice lady on the phone. Some trees do need a light trimming in the near future. We camped at North Bingham County Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

This was a good park for an over nightstop. With a 30 ft travel trailer we were able to stay hooked up and there was plenty of room in the site. The bathrooms could have used a good cleaning. The dump station and fresh water were close to the exit and in good condition. There is lots of room for walking dogs or playing ball. A good value for an overnight park. We camped at North Bingham County Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.

This is the old fashioned way of camping with a lovely, quiet county park. Full hookups including 50 amp with grass and trees. Drop your envelope with check or cash and enjoy. Any site would meet your needs. We overnighted and did not even have to unhook, all for $20. Thank you to the good care provided. We camped at North Bingham County Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

This county park has 12 spaces for RVs, all pull-through with 50 amp electric and water service for $20 per night. There is also a dump station as well as restrooms with showers, bathrooms could use more frequent cleaning. The spaces are a bit narrow but serviceable. The park is located along the Snake River just outside the town of Shelley, ID, 2 miles off I-15. You can call ahead for a reservation or take your chances on a first come basis. We camped at North Bingham County Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

This is a county park that's located approximately one mile from Hwy 15. There are two entrances to the park, both are big rig friendly - one is directly from the main highway passing the park, and the other is from a side road just after passing the park. Our GPS directed us to the side road past the park. We turned around, as we didn't see the entrance from the side road, but the entrance is near the dump station. There is a clipboard on the office door (office is located near the main highway) where you can check for available sites. Put money in envelope and drop through slot in the door. Reservations can be made as well. All sites (I believe there are 12) appear to be the same length and are long enough for any size rig. The sites are hard packed gravel, relatively level, but a little narrow. There are trees, many of which needed to be trimmed, at the front and back of each site. The sites offer water and electric, with a dump station on premises. There is one shower with four toilet rooms. Verizon data and cell service worked well. There is no park wifi. Lots of places to walk pets. There is a small outdoor museum as well as a model airplane strip behind the park. The museum is worth a visit. There's also a disc golf course at the park. If parking in site #4 be careful as there is a narrow channel running the entire length of it, which makes it very easy to twist an ankle if you don't watch where you're stepping. We camped at North Bingham County Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
