This place has great potential, but just isn’t quite there. The indoor pool is great. It’s as warm as a bathtub, but still cool enough that you don’t overheat in 15 minutes. The facilities are VERY outdated, but still functional. The only water available comes from the hot spring, so you have to take cold water to mix it, or wait for it to cool before drinking. With some updates, this could be a high quality place.
We camped at Irish Point at Arrowhead's designated dispersed camping area. The road around the reservoir is pretty tight, though that doesn't discourage long trailers and toy haulers. We're pretty self-contained so didn't miss any usual camp ground amenities. Our neighbors were sparse and quiet and we enjoyed the peace of this area.
Several friendly semi-permanent residents with kids, some waiting for base housing. Plenty of room for weekenders, no reservations, wide open space for kids to run around, central fire pit to roast s’mores and hang out, highly recommend! We visited in January, but I’m sure it’ll be much prettier in the summer.
We stayed here for about 3 weeks in our motorhome while waiting to close on our new house. The price was very reasonable, the staff was very helpful and friendly, very nice and clean amenities.
My only complaint is that the spaces are pretty narrow. We had neighbors within 10 feet of us on both sides.
I would stay here again.
Ranger review: Banner and Oak life straw water bottle at Edna creek campground Idaho.
These campgrounds are pretty nice. They had snow early on in the season and it was pretty chilly when we were there. It's not a bad drive from Boise ID as long as the roads aren’t icy. The bathroom was nice enough as you can see in the pictures, but it is just a pit. It is free at least in the off season no guarantees in season. There is a dumpster, but you can’t use it in the winter. The sites are nice and large enough for a medium size family there is a picnic table and a pole to hold a trash bag or a lantern which is very nice. The fire ring was nice but not very deep because of past fires. We had a nice little creek running right near our site. The campground was not very busy so we had no trouble getting a spot and if it had been full there were other places we could have gone with no trouble.
As a Ranger for The Dyrt, I get products to test from time to time. Today, I am testing the Life Straw Water Bottle as sold on Banner and Oak. Lifestraw Water Bottle at Banner and Oak. The water bottle is very nice looking. It does exactly as stated on the Banner and Oak site. You just fill the water bottle with flowing water. Screw the cap on and then drink the water through the straw. It does need a little more suction power to pull the water through the filter, which is noticeable but, not a big problem. Fair warning the water did taste different than tap water, but I think this is to be expected with any filter. One really cool thing about this water bottle is that for every bottle purchased they give clean water to a school child in Africa for a whole year. This is a huge bonus! This bottle is ideal for camping and hiking adventures. It is also, a good emergency essential.
