Hike to waterfalls

The campground is within walking distance of Lower Mesa Falls and an easy but longer hike to Upper Mesa Falls. All the usual amenities in this campground- picnic tables, fire rings, vault toilets(really clean!), plus steel prep stand tables. No cell service for me here, but I think some other campers had service with a different carrier. Definitely do the hike to the falls to save yourself a parking fee($5), or be sure to take your Interagency National Parks card and the parking fee will be waived. Not far away is the Bear Gulch hike, which is very pretty, but you will likely have to share the trail with mountain bikers and dirt bikers, so be prepared.

Small but grand

This little campground, only 9 sites, is very well kept and in a wonderful location. The Tetons are about an hour away and West Yellowstone is about the same distance. Not to mention Lower Mesa Falls is only 100 or so yards from the closest campsite. Upper Mesa Falls is just up the road as well making this a great jumping off point for almost any adventure. In regards to the actual campground, there are sites with electrical hookups and spots large enough to fit two RVs. There is also fire pits, tables, water, restrooms, and even bug traps. Since the site is so small there is also not much noise except for a car driving by every now and then. Overall, a wonderful place to stay.

Small Idaho gem near the Tetons

This campground and the adjacent Falls were recommended to me by a local, and what a find! The campground was very small(9 sites, I think), quiet, and beautiful. The outhouse and campsites were extremely clean. All sites had electric hookup available; camping fees were $30 with hookup and $15 without. The campground is located on Mesa Falls Scenic Byway, near Ashton, Idaho, and is a short walk to The lower Falls. I will definitely return to camp at this tiny gem.
