7 Reviews of Swan Falls - Idaho Power
Love variety spots for fishing, campground perfect for privacy.

This is really popular area difficult to get spots you want but worth it. Great fishing spots.

Birding and fishing

Very hot with little to no shade. The best part of this place is watching the birds of prey and the scenic canyon veiws. Fishing is pretty good here but people are rude and don't pack out their trash.

Easy access car camping

If you're needing a quick getaway for the weekend but cant go too far from Boise/Meridian, Swan Falls is the place for you! Both the idaho power side and further down the gravel road gives you numerous options for camping. Dam makes for great fishing too!

Small and Peaceful Sites along the Snake River, Idaho

Just south of Kuna, Swan Falls is a nice quiet place for tent or RV camping. RV should be smaller than 27'. We have a 27' Travel Trailer pulled with an extended long bed Chevy Silverado. We were able to get into the last or furthest campsite up stream. north of the dam. We were able to launch our kayaks for fishing and paddling for a couple of days. It is dry camping with no hookups. No reservations, so it's on a first come first serve basis. Our site had a fire pit but no picnic table. Fishing was awesome. I caught quite a few smallies, but they were on the smaller side. Still fun to catch. There were a few smaller sites for tent camping along the river. There are a few more sites below the dam as well. All dry camping. The drive down from the top is pretty steep. Ensure your vehicle is powerful enough to pull your rig back up the grade ;-)

Fish, Camp, Hike, Ride, Hunt, Explore

There are plenty of activities here, not to mention the fact that this canyon was carved out by a massive flood about 15,000 years ago when the Bonneville Lake emptied. And if you are into watching Birds of Prey, hearing coyotes yipping at night and having rabbits running around, as well as some deer cruising the area, this is a nice place for a weekend getaway and is easy to get in and out.

Great for Families

This is a really nice area for families to fish and hike. The area is kept clean and everyone is super nice.

Swan Falls

Located just a 40 minute drive from the city of Boise, this campground is the perfect quick getaway. There are many campsites to choose from tucked down along the river, and the best part is, they are all free! With this freedom comes a few campsites that are a bit littered and disheveled, but there are some beautiful spots if you take the time to look. The gorgeous canyon walls provide a great view from any spot. Fishing here is very popular too, with huge bass jumping all evening and night. This is a great place to go if you just want to have some peace, swimming, and fishing. Not to mention there are trails all over the rim of the canyon and even Kuna caves a few minutes away, making it a destination with many adventure options.
