While the sites themselves leave much to be desired, Bruneau is awesome. The camp hosts have been there for 7 years and are super friendly and helpful. The restrooms are in tip-top shape and there are several features that made this an awesome spot for our family-a dog park within walking distance, open grassy space for playing whiffle ball, etc and the ability to ride bikes to the Dunes-about 1 mile from the Broken Wheel site. It does get super windy though. And although we have only been in the fall and spring, I have heard you really cannot walk on the sand in the summer-too hot! Overall, we love it.
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.
A great campground in the South Hills of Idaho that feels like an oasis in the desert! This is one of a few developed campgrounds that you encounter as you head up Rock Creek Rd. Like the other sites in the canyon there are metal camp fire ring, picnic tables, and vault toilets. There are not very many sites, around 5, so don't plan on getting a spot if you arrive after 3 on Friday through the weekend. Any time during the week you should be fine to get a spot as I visited on a Wednesday around 6 and only saw 1 occupied site. The fee per night is $5 and there is a wonderful stream right next to almost every campsite that you can fish in and hang your hammock over. The creek was also low enough to cool off in the waters safely, even with smaller children. Last thing I noticed was a ton of basalt cliffs and cracks that I'm pretty sure haven't been developed for climbing, so if anyone is feeling super ambitious, let me know and we can develop it together!
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!
