Superbly quiet!

Roads may be tight in bad weather. Nice creek nearby. May be some cattle at times. No facilities that i recall.

Great getaway

It was perfect for a quick get out of town getaway. It wasn’t crowded since it was mid November. We will be back!

Well kept, sweet oasis

We pulled in and were amazed how nice it was to be right by the creek with covered shelter, picnic table, fire ring, and vault toilet and no charge. Two Tent pad sites, or places to pull in with truck/trailer etc. we thought it was nice and quiet, and the fishing seemed like it would have been fantastic if we would have had some time to stay. Silver creek/Picabo anglers not far up the road and is worth the trip.

Carmela RV park

I think they have the wrong name listed on here for this RV park. We stayed one night here in our RV and only was $35 for a night with only 30 and 50 AMP hookups. There’s some sites with no hookups at all.

Standard KOA

Standard KOA facilities (access to family style bathrooms, wifi, laundry room, etc). Only one of the tent sites in our lot had electricity and water. Very close to the town of Twin Falls, and near Shoshone falls (wonderful site!).

Nice place to stay.

Several drive through sites. Mostly paved.

Grassy and clean

Ok we thought this was going to be a good spot by the looks of it but our experience was mixed. It was hot when we were arrived at 5pm at around 101, but cooled down nicely as the sun went down.

The site had nice grass and was clean with nice shower facilities in the center of our loop fro site #38. The train goes through several times per night and is super loud!

Overall the sites are close together it was really noisy over the Labor Day weekend and we hardly got any sleep. The tree cover is nice but you can’t see any stars that way.

Nice and clean but won’t go back.

We were tent camping.

Great Oasis in the Desert but Very Small

This is definitely the smallest campground that I encountered while traveling through the South Hills of Idaho that are about a half hour away from Twin Falls.  There were only 2 sites that I could find while driving along this narrow stretch of the river, but they were definitely some of the best sites in the canyon!  Each of the 2 sites had metal fire rings and picnic tables and a vault toilet right at the split between the 2 campsites.  Another bonus was the seclusion you get from the other campground but unfortunately not the road, which isn't too big of a problem as the traffic is pretty light in the canyon during the week.  At the campsite further to the south there were 2 little rocks pools that people had made in the stream that were perfect for cooling off in after a long hot day of hiking around in the hills.  There were also dozens of trout swimming in and around these pools that would make it super easy to fish from a chair within site of your campfire!

Peaceful area

Very well kept campground. The camp host was very nice. He delivered the firewood and  directed us to the waterfall. Our campsite was clean and had a cooking stand next to the picnic table. I would very much recommend this campground.

Too expensive

Based on the other Dyrt reviews, we originally planned to camp here on August 7 during our cross-country road trip. However, the price just didn’t seem worth it to us. We drove around the campground loops and saw that the sites were pretty close together and it was buggy. There were nice facilities at least. There were a number of sites open despite arriving at 10pm, though it was Wednesday. The total price of$40+ included the site fee+ non-res fee+ motor vehicle fee+ state sales tax. We had just come from paying$20 for a state park campground in Oregon with similar facilities, so it seemed silly to pay so much. In the end we stayed at the close by RV park which added a late arrival fee, so we probably only saved$15. Both campgrounds are near a railroad and local airway, so there is a lot of noise. If we could have done it again, I think we would have just skipping camping in this general area and kept driving a little further.
