Balanced Rock Campground

Ohmygoodness. This place is THE BEST. I couldn’t believe we found it in the middle of nowhere. Camping along both sides of road beside river inside small canyon. Walking distance to Balanced Rock. Lots of natural features. Kayakers paddle up and then float back down. Lots of fishing but little…

Nice free campsite

With some fire rings and in May, clean pit toilets. Lots of bugs, but then lots of birds! Right on the Bruneau arm of the snake. The sites are well spaced and not very defined. A local fishing favorite with several huge rigs and generators at one end and someone doing miserable rap karaoke at the…

More ticks than I’ve ever seen in my life

Do not come here during spring! We found 6 ticks within an hour of being there. You might have better luck at black sands RV resort down the road but a local said it’s best to avoid bringing your pets there or camping at all there.

Incredible camp spot

One of the coolest spots I’ve ever camped, and it was FREE! Definitely a hidden gem, pulled up late Sunday night around 830 and there was a few spots left. Bathroom out of TP but thankfully had our own. If you’re looking for a clean beautiful free spot, this is IT!

On the Reservoir

A large campground geared toward boating with a great location right on the reservoir. Not a lot of shade trees but a beautiful high desert setting.

Right on the reservoir

Great camp ground for water sports.  All sites near the water.  Not much shade in the heat of the summer and the campsites are fairly close together.

Quiet and clean

I spent a couple nights here the weekend before Thanksgiving. It was quiet and clean. There wasn’t any cell or wifi service or reception in the canyon.

Good Water Access

This campground is an oasis in the middle of the desert.  It gets hot here in the summer. It has RV and camper parking along the Reservoir and a few tent sites.  There is a big park/picnic area with several picnic tables and a designated swimming area.  There is a boat launch right next to it so…

Small campground near CJ Strike Dam

Locust Park is a small campground with both RV and tent sites.   Its next to the river and the CJ Strike dam.  It's located in the high desert and gets hot in the summer.  There are some shade trees but its still the desert.  The grassy area is actually really nice turf.  There is a vault toilet…

Great open area on water!

Several sites along reservoir with camping literally on the water's edge. Out of probably a dozen sites, most are rv friendly, even a couple of sites for big rigs. This campground is a utility operated natural area by Idaho Power and very well maintained. Fishing, kayaking and bird watching…

Meh, its okay.

Close to the road, you can hear all the traffic. Close to the boat launch ramps, you can hear all the boats racing to their fishing spot as the sun comes up. Close to an Air Force Base, you get to listen to jet exhaust all day and night. Its windy. No shade. Serious off-road trails (surprise if…

Nice but it was H-O-T!

Campground was clean and well maintained. Unfortunately we went on the hottest day of the year and got cooked. The car said it was 111F! No real trees to speak of for shade so we spent the entire day in the water. It cooled off at night but got a bit gusty.

We had to cut our trip a day early but…

Lakeside Bliss

About 8 spots right on the shore of the lake - each site has a cutout “step” down through the weeds and into the lake. Ideal for fishing or wading. Water is cleaner in some sites than other depending on winds/currents, but never goes up very far above the knees. One vault toilet, very clean. Sites…
