Great Campground, bad access.

This was a beautiful camp ground. It is well kept. It has clean well maintained toilets. and good clear campsites and trails. You have the rushing river below your campsite and the mountains all around. I had hoped for wonderful wild flowers and was not disappointed. 

((((()))))) I would recommend anyone with a low clearance under their vehicle or pulling a camper to google to find the route from Highway 7 to the campground. The road down from Falling Water had been washed out and repaired but was almost washed out again. We had just enough road to get down with our small camper but were afraid to try to get out back that route. The folk at our neighboring camp site had maps and we found a route north which we followed to a low water crossing. There was no way we were going to  be able to cross it with the camper. So we left the camper with some great folk and crossed with only our truck. We will return along the Hwy 7 route to get the camper and camp along that route. 

I will review the alternate route after we have completed it.

  • Can you see the sign on the other side. One would have had to cross the river to take the trip to twin falls. We did it once in a drier time.
