Great little site!

It’s right along the snake river, while swimming isn’t encouraged you can wade in the water where the boats load. It has gorgeous views with a camp BBQ and small camp sites. It’s feels secluded but you are also near other sites so it still feels safe! It includes a playground and picnic areas that I’m sure would be great for families! I love this little park!

I might be biased

But Beaver Dick Park is the perfect place to camp if you are looking for a campground that feels safe (close to other campers) while still having your privacy (trees between most campsites). It’s also close to a river that you can float if you start just a little north of the camp sight. There is also a great little spot where the river slows at the park where you can sit on the dock, fish, and even play in the water. Great place to camp- especially with little kids because you are still close to civilization!

Great Spot

My wife and I stayed at a spot near here for two nights. It was flat and hidden. There was a nice fire pit and the creek nearby was an added bonus. It's a great spot and I would definitely return

Super clean, nice host and easy pull through sites

Full hook ups and a pretty creek to walk the dog along. Even have washrooms and laundry.

Great spot

This is a great location. The owner of the property, Scar, is very generous in offering his property for free to stay at to complete strangers. This is dry camping, no water or sewer. There’s a dump station with water close by off the main highway. He does have a few outlets we saw but didn’t use them. Owner is friendly and generous. We enjoyed the nightly campfire. Read his website before arriving, all he really asks for and be respectful. Craters of the Moon is not too far. We hope to stop by again one day. Idaho is beautiful.

First to Review
Quiet and Cozy

This is a nice little area hidden near a resivor.

You can reserve or first come sites.

The website is easy to navigate and reserve.

Full hookups.

Plenty of room for kids to play.

With a low price per night its one of the best we've found in the area.

Basic to sleep for free

This Cabela’s allow you to stay over for a night, close to shopping for anything you need and a grassy area to walk your dog.

Simple spot to stay in Blackfoot

This is for RV parking with electrical hookups for 20 bucks at the airport. 18 hookups and awesome dog park. Also a bike ride away from a very nice park on the lake with lots of play space for kids during the day. No toilets or showers but a simple stay and there is Wal-Mart everything else you need right in town. Blackfoot Wal-Mart does not allow overnight parking. There is water hookup during season. Also free dump station at fire station.

Convenient and Clean along the water

This was a great little stop over Campground. Picnic tables, bbq, and fire pits at each site. A few sites are right along the water and we were lucky enough to snag one - beautiful sunset on the water. Basic flush toilets were clean. There is a boat launch. There is a bike path right from the campground that follows the river and leads to downtown Riverwalk area. Only real complaint was that it has a lot of traffic noise (constant hum) and a VERY LOUD train that went by a few times during the night, blowing its whistle. Light sleepers may not be happy.

Large sites, free, near the river, tons of hiking, cool spot!

Stayed here a few times over this summer, and have enjoyed it every time.

Long dusty road to get here, then a bunch of free sites open up on both sides. The river-side sites tend to be a bit smaller from what I could see, but there are a lot of sites and both times I was there it wasn't crazy busy so options seem to be plenty.

Bathrooms available. Decent cell reception on Verizon. Lots of firewood seems to be lying around to gather as well, a nice bonus. The surrounding area has a lot of trails and other outdoor things to get into. Not all that close to town for supply runs, but not so far away as to require a substantial amount of time to get what you need and get back to the campsite.

For the low low price of nothing, this place is a damn good deal.
