This is a nice small RV park and a few cabins in Swan Valley, ID. It is heavily treed, so lots of shade. Somehow even in the trees our satellite worked from space 6, but it is mounted at the very rear of our rig. No fire pits at each site, but there are a couple of ramshackle fire pits on site if one really wants a fire they could walk over and use. The water spigots at the sites were not working, the owner had rigged up water hoses running throughout with splitters that you tie into. I certainly hope this is a temporary thing because it does not seem like it would be sanitary to operate in this manner. There is some sort of municipal facility next door with heavy equipment running all day (waste transfer station maybe), but no smell or birds or anything, just noise of machinery during working hours. We liked this place overall. No wifi at our site though I am not sure they advertise wifi as one of their amenities. I hear it is available closer to the office.

The owner needs to get the water fixed and change the layout for the sewer connection, it has to go over a railroad tie and is kind of far away, making it not function correctly. Some trees should be trimmed to avoid scraping the rvs. We camped at Rendezvous At South Fork in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice small campground, great place if you fly fish. We stayed one night as we passed through. The utilities worked well, not much to do in the area except fish or a little sightseeing. Quite at night, but some daytime traffic to a transfer station for refuse. We would stay again if passing through. We camped at Rendezvous At South Fork in a Travel Trailer.

This is a great, quite park off the highway. Spent one night passing through on our way to Mt. Rushmore. No restrooms or showers where available, but used my motorhome. Very friendly and accommodating staff. Had wi-fi and AT&T cell coverage. Would stay here again. We camped at Rendezvous At South Fork in a Motorhome.

We spent one night here on our way to Yellowstone. Site was gravel and level. Did not need to disconnect. Check-in was easy and the staff was friendly. Nice and shady with a gravel area for the picnic table. We would stay here again. We camped at Rendezvous At South Fork in a Fifth Wheel.

What a lovely little park! Nothing fancy but very pleasant. Large grassy sites with big shade trees. Nice little fishing shop. Owners are very nice and helpful. Peaceful setting, no traffic noise. Great Wi-Fi. Wish it had cable but, oh well. Nice area with beautiful scenery. I would stay here again. We camped at Rendezvous At South Fork in a Fifth Wheel.

What a gem of a place. Granted it’s not a diamond, but it is nice little sapphire. There are six gravel and level pull-thru sites with an ample grassy area between you and your neighbor. Three cabins are also available. The owners are on site and very pleasant and helpful. They take pride in the appearance and the place is as good as it could be. Wi-Fi is now throughout the park and I found it to be much better than most. Hookups are more than adequate. The sourpuss that made the previous post must have been nagged by his wife and didn’t have a dog to kick. Highway and road to the trash station do produce some noise, but I found it to be a minor annoyance that went away after dark. No cable and many trees so you have to do without TV. If you are a fly fisherman (I’m not) this area apparently is a mecca for that endeavor. If I’m ever back in this area I would love to stay again. We camped at Rendezvous At South Fork in a Motorhome.

I was told that the site would be satellite friendly and that we could get Wi-Fi at the site. Trees blocked our rooftop mounted dish from receiving a signal. Wi-Fi was only available at the office. The sites were 300-400 ft behind the office. With our roof top Wi-Fi antenna booster, I could pick up the signal, but it was way too weak to establish a link. The iPad could not find the campground's signal from our site (only at the office). I was told that next week, they plan to have a roof top Wi-Fi antenna installed. Railroad ties border each gravel pull-through site. The sewer connections are at least four feet outside the railroad ties and are about 6 inches above ground. So your sewer hose has to go over the ties and up to the sewer connection. Even though the sites are behind the office, Rt 26 road noise could be heard. Plus the side road bordering the campground on the north side goes to the local garbage dump, so it is a source of additional traffic and noise. We camped at Rendezvous At South Fork in a Motorhome.

Nice and shady site but there was more noise than expected from the road nearby. The Wi-Fi worked just in front of the office. We stayed here for one night; was good for a stopover. We camped at Rendezvous At South Fork in a Fifth Wheel.

Wonderful little park. Great owners, great setting, good sized sites and nice landscaping. If you want a nice quiet little park, this is it. The only reason for the 9 instead of a 10 is the lack of cable and Wi-Fi at the site. But Wi-Fi is available in the store. We came for a few days and ending up staying three weeks. We camped at Rendezvous At South Fork in a Motorhome.

Very small and personal campground. Large sites both length and width. The sites are nicely shaded and grassed with gravel parking and picnic table. The views are spectacular. We stayed 6 nights and the 7th is free. Good Wi-Fi. The owners live on site and are very friendly. It is a little out of the way, but we used it as a central location to visit southeast Idaho. It is very quiet and peaceful. We stayed a little ahead of season so we had the campground to our selves most of the time. We definitely recommend this campground and would stay here again. We camped at Rendezvous At South Fork in a Motorhome.
