It is not the easiest to get to, and the road is a test for your engine and brakes, but once you arrive it is a quiet peaceful park with great water access. We originally had a reservation for a view site with no hook ups, but upon arrival they had a hookup site(#104) available, and the temps were nearly 100 degrees, so we took it! The park is large and thus the areas seem nicely spaced apart, never felt crowded, even though there are over 100 sites. There is lots of shoreline and plenty of water for everyone. We launched the kayaks and enjoyed the water ourselves- paddled to the opposite shore and found a remote unoccupied camp.
This is a pretty decent place to camp. There are other sites in the area that might be a little quieter and less expensive, but I would bump this site up on the list in terms of how easily it is to get to some of the attractions in the area! The giant cedars and Elk River Falls are a must stop if you head this way. It can be crowded, and a little noisy. Interesting plants and mushrooms to see, depending on time of year!
Really beautiful campsites and very clean. There was only one other group at the site, but all the tent spots were well spaced apart. The creek was nice background noise. It is also lots of fun to go look for garnets in the creek! Idaho's state gem! The garnet area was closed when we went (erosion), but garnet sand was visible farther down the creek along the road.
This is a great place to take your dog for a walk. The trail is a nice loop through the woods, and there is a nice picnic area, swings, and volleyball court. There are two sides to this park, one is easier to access than the other. The drive out to the park is easily accessed on paved roads.
This was our first experience with a full service resort glamping. We just got a pop up trailer and got some free nights.. the park was beautiful the bathrooms were just remodeled. You were not super close to your neighbors. It as very quiet and there was a walking/ biking path along the river. Hells canyon is right up the road for tours going thru the rapids. We had a really good time.
This is our second visit to this park! Susan is so flexible and has wonderful customer service! We also love Ruby who runs the office as well and she is always helpful, and has great customer service as well! We love fishing from the docks and the breathtaking views of the river are really something! A stay here is always wonderful!
