Fort Running Bear RV Park, Idaho
If you like the middle of nowhere, you will like Fort Running Bear RV Park. It is approximately 32 miles to the middle of nowhere, the last three are on a dirt road. You are driving through scrub country with no trees and hills in the distance. Then you see a copse of trees in the distance. That is where you end up. This is an older campground, private and family run. There is a shower house attached to the swimming pool and a laundry room. The sites have room around them for tents, bikes, etc; a covered picnic table , most have shade and fire rings. There are full hookup sites and basic sites. When we visited the wind was wiping through the area. The owners are personable and friendly, the campground is well maintained. The shower house …clean and a little old. This would be a nice place to spend a quiet weekend or time with the family. It would not make sense to use this campground for a base camp due to the distance from anywhere.
We spend two days this July. Staff was friendly and informative. Don’t forget a mask if your going during Covid times. (Office requires it). Facilities are clean and nice. The small pool was great for the kiddos. We tent camped and where lucky to get the pick of the spots. The tent area has two covered areas with power. While we where there they’re where about. 7 tents with probably room for about 4 more. The group fire pit is also large and nice. One family in our group brought their RV and had a nice spot and hooks up where all working. We are considered locals so we didn’t make the trek the Anderson reservoir since we know all about it but if your not local make the short drive to enjoy some boating or swimming. The put put course want not available since it was getting worked on but was getting a overhaul so next time should be great. They have a community building but it was closed due to CoVid19. All in all it was a great weekend and spot.
