Last minute stop

Stopped here upon realizing that we wouldn't make it all the way to Castle Rocks State Park that night and it was starting to rain.  Plenty of sites available on a Thursday night in mid-March.  Bathroom facility available in the middle of the campground.  Pull-in spots are a bit small but we just had the pickup and a tent so we did fine.  Cool views in the morning of the Snake river.  Biggest drawback is that the campground sits barely off the interstate so there is a quite a bit of road noise. Not sure I'd make it my go-to camping spot but it worked for what we needed.

Great spot for climbers!!

Went down to go climbing.  Wasn't able to get the guidebook due to the visitor center closure (just as the COVID-19 stuff started) but was able to take a nice lap around the main spire and on-sight a few routes for us.  Camped at the main campground for the park (short drive from the climbing).  Campground was surprisingly full for mid-March so we set up the tent at one of the unused "equine sites" away from everybody else so that the dogs could roam a bit.  There is a $5 entry fee and a camping fee as well.  Would definitely go 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.

Absolutely Great

Beautiful sites with many areas to rock climb. Pit houses don’t stink too bad. Good tent sites.

Great Snake River views!

This is a small campground located just north of the hwy. along the Snake River. Several sites in lower loop have outstanding river views. Sites are mostly well spaced, gravel and level. Some pull through sites good for big RVs. Almost every site had water and elec. Several nature trails and geology trail. Restrooms looked standard but did not use. Small visitor center provides Oregon Trail history of the area and the rocks. About two miles away in a different park of the park is Register Rock showing names of OT settlers located in a nice picnic park. You can make reservations on line but we drove in about 2pm and had a choice of sites. Would have given 5 stars except for some uneven sites. We will definitely come back as we pass by or stay a few days just to enjoy sitting on a rock above the river.

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!).

More Shady Camping Right by the Namesake Trailhead

This was a really really small camping area that's located along the creek road going through the south hills of Idaho.  There are absolutely no amenities here however so take care of business at one of the more developed campgrounds along the road!  It had wonderful shade everywhere but there wasn't any flat ground to be able to lay out a tent.  There were also only 2 maybe 3 campgrounds if you squeezed it in and it required a high clearance vehicle to get to 2 of them.  Good thing is if you get these sites you will have no one around you and personal access to a great hiking trail and in the winter snowshoeing back country skiing trail!

High Desert Camping with a Lot of Shade!

This is another great campsite on the road that heads up to Lake Cleveland and Mt Harrison.  It lies just before the turnoff to descend down to Lake Cleveland and is a great option just in case all the sites at Lake Cleveland are taken.  This should only happen on holidays and weekends though.  The campground itself is pretty primitive with the only amenity being a vault toilet and some scattered corrals.  A large open area is where most of the RV's camp and if you drive along the outskirts of the trees you'll be able to find excellent tent campsites nestled within the trees.  Definitely one of the best sites for lounging around in a hammock all day!

Gorgeous Alpine Camping in Southern Idaho!

This is one of the last campgrounds you come across before arriving at the turnoff for Lake Cleveland.  It has a ton a ton of spots but they are pretty close together so try to camp here during the weekday or if you have to come here on a weekend go to the campground immediately before Lake Cleveland as it is a little more secluded and the sites are more spaced out.  If you're planning on having a large get together or party in the mountains then this is the best campground to come to!

Each campsite has a minimum of a metal fire ring and BBQ grill, picnic tables and some even have a large metal BBQ pit thing.  The large sites also have massive fire rings where you could basically get a bonfire going!  There are trash cans and vault toilets scattered throughout the campground.  The only problem I had with the campground is that there isn't a map and the roads through it are narrow and confusing.  Other than that this is an amazing spot to spend the weekend or a few days during the week

More Great Creek Spots with Ample Parking!

This is a no frills campground located in the South Hills of Idaho about 20 miles south of Twin Falls.  Each site has its own fire ring and picnic table with most also giving you a shady spot to set up a tent if you want.  There is only 1 vault toilet though near the info sign.  The campsites are all lined up in a row next to the creek and trees.  There are not many sites so get here early if you plan on coming during the weekend.  It also seems like you could just park your RV in the giant dirt area to the east of the creek.  This area will be hot in the morning and shady in the afternoon as there are no shade trees to the east of the campsites.  A bonus of staying at this campground is that you have walking access to the Third Fork Trailhead!
