This award-winning, peaceful KOA lies along the Oregon Trail, halfway between Salt Lake City and Yellowstone National Park. Settle back in a tree-shaded site, lulled by the trickle of the creek that runs through the campground. Drop a lure into the creek (fishing license required) or relax in the heated pool. Your dog will love the fenced-in dog park and a walk along the nature trail. No RV or tent? Stay in a tepee with modern conveniences or a Cabin by the creek. Or go "camping" in a Deluxe Cabin with a full bath/linen service. The National Oregon/California Trail Center provides an amazing look at the pioneer experience, including a computer-simulated covered-wagon ride. For adventure today, you can explore ATV trails, enjoy water sports at Bear Lake, bird-watch at Bear Lake National Wildlife Refuge or head underground to Minnetonka Cave. Please call for campground's early opening dates. Pool: Memorial Weekend Labor Day Weekend. Max pull thru: 120 feet. Your hosts: Jim and Brenda Reno.
This KOA is close to the mouth of Montpelier Canyonand therefore can be hot in the summer. It does however lie right next to the creek! Also right next to the creek before the campground is a doggy walking and poo area. The office is large and has quite a few convenience items. There are shaded picnic areas and camping with options for hookuos, the standard KOA stuff. A little bonus was the kids playground complete with swings and other toys
It was a great campground but there were some very noisy people duromg quiet hours that no one seemed to monitor…
I like staying at KOA’s during road trips - I choose a cabin so I can have a bed, there are plenty of things for the kids to do and everyone can find their pace/place to wind down from the day. Some are definitely better than others - Montpelier Creek was one of the BEST. This is a beautiful KOA. Our cabin was right on the creek, and I found my pace and place on the porch and nature trail watching birds and listening to the creek while the kids enjoyed the pool and playground. Everything was in great shape, including the shower house. Wonderful area with lots of history and natural beauty.
