My Go To

Can camp in tents, cars, or hammocks. Lots of spots near the rivers throughout the dirt road. Pretty popular for fire pits in the spring and summer. Can float the river as well. Sometimes see the occasional moose or dear.

Nice but busy

Kelly island is a beautiful campground on the snake river. Great hiking and fishing nearby. In summer time very busy but spread out.

Too close for comfort

We had planned to stay 2 nights at the Snake River RV Park, but it was very crowded and the sites were too close together. We had reservations, but still ended up in an overflow area, with a huge sink hole which we almost backed into. The site was next to the playground, and kids were out till after 10 pm. We left after one night.

Endless recreation close to town

Fantastic biking, hiking, and wildlife viewing just a few minutes from town amenities. Rough it all week, or head up the road to get a slice or just do laundry. Maybe even at the same time?

This is a great spot, only downside is the highway is fairly close. Chances are though you'll be so busy on the trails you won't even notice. Our campsite looked recently renovated; picnic table, bear box, and fire ring looked brand new. We hiked up towards Oliver peak on a clear day and could see for miles.

Convenient and lovely RV Park

Reservations are suggested during the summer season for a shaded and grassy RV site. Playground. Dog area. Cabins too.

Lower and Upper Palisades lakes

This was an amazing overnight camping excursion.

Hiking Big Elk.

Can be very busy in summer months.

Helpful and friendly staff, great BBQ, growing resort

The staff here was very friendly and helpful. We had our two dogs, and the staff helped guide us to several awesome hikes that were dog friendly that were great. Additionally, the staff were very helpful with offering tours to our schedule when we wanted them (kayaking). The park is located in Victor, ID on the other side of Teton Pass from Grand Teton National Park (the resort is about a half a mile from the center of town) Victor is a charming small town with several breweries and a locally sourced grocery market. We really enjoyed the town, especially compares to West Yellowstone, which is where we went next.

Your normal city-slicker campground

In my opinion, this is not 'camping' but Glamping. But is okay and works for a overnighter pass through. There's a passcode to enter the bathroom which was an issue for me since we stopped here late at night just to spend the night somewhere. The office was closed, so we couldn't get the code.

Intimate, beautiful, great fish!

This campground has a small number of lots, and when we were there in July most were filled by RVs. Only one had a noisy generator;) our spot was right next to the roaring Palisades Creek, and a short walk to restrooms. Only 15 bucks a night;)

A good spot to stop btw SLC and the Tetons.

Need a place stay while restocking your supplies? Idaho Falls has everything you need to shop for. It’s a big town with all the modern conveniences you need. Plus there is a night life and great bars. I highly recommended The Celt, Blackrock, and Firehouse Grill for evening merriment. In the summer, the campsite is a great place to take a dip in the Snake River, but if you are looking for a rural, off the beaten path site this is not it. It’s in the heart of Idaho Falls. The sign says no dogs, but I always see dogs there.

Good quiet spot

The bathrooms here are very well maintained and it was very quiet. The park was entirely campers and RVs, so our tent seemed out of place. The sites are close to the road, but it stayed pretty quiet and we could hear the river.

Quiet campground gets busy on weekends

This is a small (less than 25 sites) campground in the Caribou-Targhee National Forest near the Snake River. The river is an attraction for fishermen.

Given the name, there must be a waterfall, right? Yes, if you come toward the campground from Rt 26, the waterfall is on your left just after the pavement ends. The waterfall is worth a stop on your way to or from the campground; the campground is about a mile past the falls.

This is a typical Forest Service campground with plenty of space between large sites. There are vault toilets, water spigots and a trash dumpster. You can use the dump station at the Palisades Reservoir during and at the end of your stay without paying $5 if you show a receipt validated by the campground host.

Double sites have 2 picnic tables and you must pay a double fee ($24) even if it's the last site in the campground. There is no discount for NPS Senior Pass holders for a double site. (This is standard at Forest Service campgrounds. Remember, hosts don't make the rules.)

Bringing an ATV? You can't ride one in the campground, but there is an ATV parking area.

Hike-able, fish-able, LOVE-ABLE!

There are many pay to park camp areas around here and also some free areas if you’re adventurous enough! Lots of land to explore and fishing is great!

Car camping $12

Sites are first come, first serve right off of the Teton Bypass. Sites are spacious and have restrooms, picnic tables and firepits for comfortable use. Only reason for low rating is it's very close to the road so you will hear cars rushing past vs. the sounds of nature and the lights from the road make it hard to see the stars. But it's cheaper than a hotel for last minute plans to run off to nature!

Good river side campground

Nice campground to hang out at the river and do river type stuff. It is laid out well for getting larger vehicles in. Due to it's location, the bugs can get bad.

Near the water

Right off a "thumb" on the Palisades reservoir, this is an amazing site with many recreational options. Paddling, hiking, bird watching - saw an osprey with an enormous fish and then later a pair of bald eagles. It was fun floating around on our kayaks and paddle boards; there were a few smaller boats and jet skis around as well.

We were there on a busy weekend, but the sites are all nicely separated so it still felt secluded! Plenty of vault toilets and a few group site options as well. The group sites are reservable, but the remaining are first-come first serve.

Peacefull

Has a small stream and lots of shaded areas

Best Campground Host

We loved meeting Glenda the host. We traded beers and traveling advice. The campground is right off the mountain road but the sites are tucked back and private. We stayed in one of the back sites by the river. There was even a little open field space at the back of the campground that we were able to play fetch in with our dog. The bathroom was a vault toilet and well maintained. Only a few spots but we showed up late afternoon and there were a few available. Close to Jackson and a good place to stay for a very reasonable price. Just load up on that mosquito repellent.

Relax in the trees or right next to the water

on the way to the campground you will travel down dirt roads that are full of scenic views. when you get to the sites it is hard to choose if you want to be right next to the water where you can fish for trout or remain tucked in the woods. both are peaceful and leave society behind.

Beautiful

Beautiful

The campsite is well maintained and has amazing scenery. I felt that even with how close the sites could be, there was still privacy and trees to separate us from the neighbors.The road coming in is 4-5 miles of curve filled dirt road at various grades making it a challenge. The camp host mentioned they would be paving the road next summer.

Popular with water access

I come here often - but mostly as a paddler! This is a very popular put in and take out for river trips, so expect traffic during the day - or even at night; full moon floats happen too! Very likely to see moose, sand hill cranes, ducks, geese, owls and other wildlife. Fishing isnt bad, but some of those big ones are pretty smart. I’ve seen hundreds of them in the river when it’s clear. Expect local scouts camping in the summer and lots of activity - but its a nice little campground or tailgate area after a paddle.

Great Family Camp

We enjoy taking our young family to this campground. It’s well manicured, and there is plenty of space. It’s easy to get to and has a fun, little prk for the kids. We go camping there almost every year.

Nice place to stop

Good park for the kids and a very cool native wood carving, it's hard to miss.

Beautiful!

It's a very dusty and gravely road. But the sites are beautiful. We got one right on the river not far from vault toilets. We are in a spot that is 3 different sites, but could easily be a large group spot. Firepita. Easy access to river. It's moving a little fast early September. But it's refreshing in the heat. There is no garbage pickup, so there is a small amount of litter. Very quiet.
