Could be nice when, and if, the water level ever gets higher. Lake at 22% of capacity. Flies made sitting out untenable. Maybe earlier in the year would be better. The road getting in was an adventure for our 35 ft motor home. Very narrow, curvy and full of blind turns. Surrounding area is quite beautiful and rugged. Given all that, would definitely return. - Marv and Chris

This park is much improved since last postings. There is no longer a store. Bring it with you. Park is well taken care of by rangers. In season there is a camp host. We've seen some pretty large RVs there, but the road in is quite a ride. It is paved all the way, but there is a steep grade up to the dam and some pretty sharp turns. Also, one must keep an eye out for rocks on the road. Park is nice grass, lots of shade, paved sites with picnic table and fire pit. Some sites can now be reserved. - leonardw

This was a disappointing campground. The road in is treacherous. I was following my hubby who was driving a 37' MH. The road has two switchbacks that caused the back tires on the right to go OFF the road! Otherwise the road is narrow and curvy. It's not a road a large wide MH should be on. We called them before traveling and they said it would be no problem. They are WRONG! We stayed at the Indian Creek Campground. Dogs were allowed to run free. Children were not respectful of other's campsites nor property. Children that were underaged and not wearing helmets were riding 4 wheelers around the campground: on lawns, etc., and spewed dirt and gravel onto our pickup and boat. The store was not open during the hours they stated. The sign said "back in 5 minutes," was gone 1/2 hour. There were no garbage cans for us to use and only one bathroom that was hoarded by day users. This state campground is contracted out for the care and upkeep. For a state campground it is one of the worst we've been in. We will NOT be going back. - BDShultz

A 30-amp full hook-up RV site for $10--amazing! This small park way out of town in the cornfields is hard to find, but worth the effort if you like bargains. We paid our camping fee at the nearby general store. When we arrived at the park, there were picnickers across the park playing baseball. But they left by 8:00 PM and it was very quiet all night with only one "long-term resident camper" in the back corner of the park. When we were packing up to leave early on Saturday morning, a travel trailer came in and hooked up to one of the full hookup spaces. Shortly thereafter, the wedding party arrived and began using the trailer as a dressing room. So, this is a popular, well-used park by the locals, but not so much by travelers. I would guess that some back-in full hookup or pull-through W&E sites would be available all the time. - fanrgs

The comments made before are still the same. The only complaint is that the trees have now grown and create a problem rubbing the RV. The price has changed to $20.00. I have 50 amps and assume so do all the rest. There are just two site taken. No noise at all at night. I would stay here again. - Jimmyk

Started using this park several years ago. $15 with sewer dump in rv park, now $20 plus $5 sewer dump next to store/gas station. Trees overgrown and very hard to maneuver without scratching RV. No one else in park so parked wrong way to have TV and stay out of trees. I will look for another place to overnight in the future. - bigbuda

Very basic park. All pull throughs on gravel. Each site has two small trees. Sites 21-25 have 50 amp. Only two sites were in use when we were there. RV park is behind the Produce Barn, which is behind the convenience store/service station. Only restrooms are in store. Dump is available, but campers pay the same fee as the public: $5. To find on map systems, search for "All American Food" in Fruitland. This park is right off I-84 and is fine for an overnight, but we probably wouldn't stay much longer. - Ken and Lee

Rate is based on a weekly rate. This is a small park with 14 spaces. four or five have long term residents. This park sits right on the Snake River with lots of old, large shade trees, river fishing, and a boat ramp. We were the first RVers under the new management. The park manager was extremely friendly and very accommodating to all our requests. The pull-through sites are a combination of gravel and grass with large shade trees. The hookups for water, electric and sewer were all good. Mosquitos were an occasional guest and other stoneflies or mayflies were an occasional bother. Dogs are welcome and there is room to walk them. The new manager stated he and the owners have big plans for improvements and expansion. For longer rigs, swing left next to the white fence to make the sharp right turn into the park at the end of the road. There is a large tree right at the corner where you turn. The Wi-Fi worked well in the front half of the park, with plans to improve reception throughout. There is no cable, and satellite reception is poor to nonexistent due to the large trees. Fire rings and picnic tables were on site. This is a very idyllic setting and we extended our original 1 week stay for another week. We would definitely return. - tnhall

We found this RV Park on our map program and Googled the name. The information on Facebook made it sound good. We had traveled nearly twice as far as I normally like to drive. The park is two miles off US-95. The road to the park entrance is a good paved road. The turn into the park was very sharp and had low hanging branches, so I made the easier turn into the exit.. Instead of going around again I backed into what would have been a pull through site. The interior roads are dirt and there are a lot of trees. Don't expect satellite TV, because of the trees. The roads are narrow and like I said the turn in off the road is sharp, but with care doable in a 42' coach. The sites are mostly grass and I was able to level easily. All the sites had 50 amp power. The staff that I met were very friendly and helpful. One came to our site with an iPad and did the registration and payment on line. The park has great views of the Snake River and has a boat launch ramp. The area for tents is along the river bank and isn't divided into sites. This by no means a resort, but if you are looking for a quiet restful place this is it. - Frank Barker

As others have said - this is a sweet place to stay. Vale is a cute little town and this small park is just as cute. You do have to turn into the office entrance to check-in then go back out on the street and turn left into the rows accessing the sites. But it is no big deal - I am 42' pulling a full size pick-up and there was plenty of room in front of the office, adequate room in the parking rows. I don't have an extension for electric (shame on me) and was unable to leave the truck hooked up as the electric is waaayyyyy to the back of the pull-through sites. Others were more prepared than I and stayed hooked. People are super, super nice and friendly and helpful. The place is clean with a nice little dog area for off-leash. Town is easy walking distance with several (reportedly) good restaurants. Did not use the amenities so cannot report on any of that. I would not only stay again but I would come for a few days just to hang out. - kdlee747

Small & clean RV park near the Oregon/Idaho border in the town of Vale along the Oregon Trail. The ladies at the office are extremely nice and helpful, pull-through sites are level and clean with grass and trees planted in between. There's a dump station by the park exit. This was a quick stopover for us on our way to Bend, and I'd stay here again if we were passing through.
There are train tracks running at the backside of the park. We only heard one train in the morning around 8:00. And there's a cattle auction yard nearby that, as some of the other reviewers mentioned, happens on Wednesdays. But it didn't bother us during our stay and didn't start early. - Busy Camper

As others have said, this is a nice park. Staff is very nice and helpful. Park is clean and sites are level, hookups are good. However, this campground has a cattle auction barn right behind it that goes full bore on Wednesdays. This involves smell and noise but also involves a guy with a Barney Fife sounding authoritairan voice calling out over a loud speaker what pens to put each cow in that has sold. He repeats the numbers twice, sometimes 3 times. Blasts you out of your camper with windows closed and air conditioner on. Also, a train track runs between the campground and cattle auction, but was only running during the day. Last, the road noise is really bad. 11th street must be a main drag as lots of traffic, lots of diesel pickups with loud exhaust and lots of big trucks including semi trucks. As there is a sharp curve there, they jake brake and floor it. I might stay here again but NEVER on a Wednesday and I would insist on being as far away from the road as possible. - Wyoming Wanderers

This park has a small number of sites (20) and can handle rigs up to 42'. The hook-ups are for water and electric (15/20/30 amp) only. Sites are on grass, which is not a problem unless it rains a great deal. There are restrooms and showers available. Availability is on a first-come, first-serve basis for the most part, with payment placed in an honor-box. This was created, I am sure, for the stockmen's use, but a good stopover place for a night. - SeenAll50

This is an older park with long term RV, mobile homes and transient RV sites (some pull-through). As long as you stay on the transient RV side, across from the mobile homes, it is OK. The long term RV side is visually offensive, with junk in the campsites, RVs in various states of mal-repair. I did not notice these sites when I first arrived since I was intent on following directions to my site.
The park served its purpose - to get us through the Labor Day weekend and a place to stay for laundry. We had to use the laundry in town since the park was repairing its water line in the older section of the park. - kco

This is basically a full-time trailer park that has a few RV spots. Their is only one bathroom that was open and it was a combination men's/women's. It was always full so I couldn't tell you if it was clean or not. In our pull-through spot there was a large pipe filled with concrete between the utility box and our 5th wheel. We nearly hit it with our slide-out. - Trackman

This is a very serviceable overnight stop. It is wedged between Highway 95 and railroad tracks. There is a bit of a tight turn for larger rigs when entering the park. Staff is very friendly. The overwhelming majority of the park is filled with a mix of run down and patchwork RVs and nicer mobile homes and park models. The transient section is actually very nice, with level gravel sites, very long pull thrus or buddy sites, shade trees, grass and good utilities. Small pad with picnic table. The WiFi worked great the night we pulled in but couldn't even find the network the following morning so not sure what the issue was. Good cable. There were three "private restrooms" with their own shower, toilet and sink but only one was in service. It was spotless. Would probably go to Caldwell or Boise if planning more than an overnight stay. - VegasVagabonds

I normally try to stay in Boise, but I could not find anything in Boise or Meridian and that is why I ended up in Caldwell. The new owners (ex military purchased in 2015) are extremely helpful and seem to care about us and how we perceived their park. There is adequate space between sites with beautifully maintained grassy areas separating each site with very level gravel parking on each site. The only small negative is they do not have any picnic tables, but since I rarely use one, it didn't bother me. - USA by RV

The park was full so we were put in an overflow spot with electric and water run from a site across the road. The sites are grassy and mostly shady. Gravel throughout the park. Sites appear to be level. Restrooms and showers were kept clean. - Jim and Chris
Jul 2016 - $29.00
Because the park was full, we were placed in an overflow site with electric hookup only. It was reasonably level and provided us with a nice 'front yard' that the regular sites did not have. The park appeared to be very neat and tidy, and the owner was very accommodating and pleasant. Easy access to the interstate. This was a perfectly adequate overnight stop. - Katy29

We stayed here June through August. Off the beaten path but a jewel. It is not close to town but if you are looking for a peaceful place to rest and enjoy nature this is it. Yes you park on the grass, and yes there are bugs, but you ARE right on the river. The sites are very spacious; you can't beat the place for peaceful enjoyment. The manager and staff work hard to keep it pristine. They are attentive and very helpful. They do fog to control the bugs on a regular basis. I commented to an employee the bugs were still around after they had recently sprayed and within 15 minutes the manager was at my site fogging again. The hiking trail on the East side of the park is perfect for an early morning run with the dog, and they are allowed to run free on the trail! We had several large family gatherings at our site this summer and everyone loved it. Great place to relax and enjoy nature! If you want a parking lot in town, go elswhere. - Rob n Rhealene

The Low Down: Small RV park with permanent residents on the Snake River in a little burg south/east of Boise. Good for a 1 night stopover. Totally grass, everywhere, you park on the grass, which sounds great, but it's very, very soft and hard to level the RV. Park is a little green oasis in the middle of a industrial area. Towns nearby are tiny, poor farming towns. The bathrooms/showers are nice and clean. People were fishing off the small dock on the river and catching catfish. Lots of bugs, couldn't read inside the coach at night due to so many tiny bugs that got through the screens.
Mojo Factor: Didn't feel a thing at this RV park, permanent residents keep to themselves, others are there mostly for 1 night.
The Dogs Opinion (it's all about the dogs): Basically not a dog friendly park at all. There are signs about every 20 feet to leash and pick up after your dog. The park is small so there is no place to really exercise your dog. There are acres of grass, would be easy for this park owner to fence in a spot for the dogs. The grass is PERFECT, which means they use regular herbicides.
What's nearby? I didn't leave the park
TV? Got several channels including all three networks
Cell phone/Wi-Fi? Good Verizon
Parting thoughts: Would look for a better park for the dogs next time coming through here. This is not a dog friendly park. - Tails From The Road

A bit off the beaten path, but that's a good thing in this case. The park is very well maintained with beautiful green and neatly mowed grass. 30 amp and 50 amp hookups available and all spaces have water and sewer. The park has a small but very clean restroom and shower for guests (no extra charge).
The frontage on the Snake River is a major plus, especially if you'd like to do some fishing for catfish. Very peaceful setting with nice views of the river. - The Old Sarge

Park is very well maintained. Management is very nice. Good wifi. BUT don't stay here if you are a light sleeper. There are railroad tracks nearby and we were awakened every 2 hours throughout the night when the trains going by would blow their whistle. And the whistle was not a couple of short toots but long drawn out repeated whistles. Impossible to sleep! Could also hear road noise from the nearby freeway. - Sven555

Nice RV park close to interstate, but quiet. A resort? Don't think so, but nice laundry facility and a pond. There is a 4' wide strip of grass between sites. Good Verizon service and OTA tv signals (along with included cable). WiFi worked reasonably well and you can pay for an upgrade to WiFi service if you need better service. The sites are loose rock and there is hardly any shade. Not much right around the park, but you are close enough to Nampa and Boise. - jtl2

our rate was based on a one week stay.
This is a fairly large park with paved streets and spacious sites, some are paved and the rest gravel. The hookups are well placed and sites have cement pads and picnic tables. Since this is a new park there is very little shade but trees have been planted. There is a nice fishing pond and some of the sites back onto it. There are various site categories and prices. The staff are friendly but you rarely see them.
I'm not sure why they chose this location for a park, there's a shooting range close by and a mink ranch that you definitely notice when the wind blows in the right direction. The garbage dumpster is at the end of the park and about a five minute walk from the other end.
Upon check in we had to initial and sign 3 pages of rules and anything over one dog is a $2.00 a day charge. there is a small dog run at one end of the park, otherwise you will have to take your dog out of the park on a dirt road to do his business or for exercise.
Overall this is a nice park that could use some fine tuning. - pheasantplucker57
