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.
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.
Went in mid July and stayed at site #14 which had a great view of the river and the cliffs. We really enjoyed the sunsets from there. Electricity and water (no sewer) temperature was in the 90s and so glad to have AC. Close to town and a winery nearby. Clean and well maintained. Campsites have very little privacy.
Stayed here before years ago. When our other campsite didn’t work out this time we headed here. Bathrooms and showers are clean and well maintained. Park is clean, plenty of trees and shade.
Such a great campground. Something for everyone, even folf!
We really liked this campground! First, the sites are nicely paved and level, and have full hookups which make an extended stay really nice. There is a picnic table and fire ring for having an enjoyable outdoor experience. there is a huge grass open area adjacent to the site which is nice for outdoor sports.
There is a hiking trail at the edge of the campground which takes you to a nearby winery for a flight of wine and some good food. Very nice for the adults! There is also a path that takes you to a park down at the river which is nice for the kids, and our boys loved the disc golf course. It is huge with 18 holes, but the front 9 are the best, as the back nine have a lot of cheat grass and bushes to lose your disc in.
Nearby there is also a museum about the Oregon trail and how the Three Island Crossing area was used by the settlers… Very interesting place!
Overall we had a great Memorial Day long Weekend.
Thai camp ground is big and easy to get to from Boise! Only and hour! Easy access and clean showers/bathroom. Lots of open grassy areas and it was quite while we were there at the end of July 2018

We Stayed at this park for one night on July 15th, 2018
It was a hot long day of driving and Site 67 in the lower area close to the river was cool, quiet and beautiful. The spaces were large and level without neighbors being on top of you. The grounds, showers and rest rooms were well maintained. We enjoyed the hookup with water and power and dumped the tanks at their dump station prior to hitting the road. The only thing the family noted was the mass quantity of gnats, with the consideration that we arrived at dusk in mid-July and they might be seasonal. They didn't bite but they were plentiful and we had hundreds dead in the AM everywhere in and out of the trailer. We would definitely use this great campground again.
You get there by passing through a historic town which was nice and a bit touristy. We came after most places were closed and left prior to them opening but it had a great little town feel to it and are planning on spending time there on the next trip through.
Campsites are well developed, but close together. This isn’t a place to sit at camp and enjoy the wilderness, but rather a place to park your trailer while you are visiting the museum, winery, or golf course. Provisions are close by. The proximity to the Boise area makes this a great getaway. We took our trailer here on a trial run and it was great to be close to home and close to stores for everything we didn’t think of before venturing out.
A large lawn area is well kept. Make sure to take your frisbee and lawn games. Paced roads are good for littles to cruise on their bikes.
Safe, clean, convenient campground.
We knew it would be hot when we visited this campground, so sprang ($55) for one of the few cabins with air conditioning. It was clean, small, and just fine. But there wasn't too much to do after 5 pm when the visitor center closed. No playground we could find, and the water isn't safe to swim in. Once the visitor center opened up in the morning though, that was an absolute gem. Would probably stay here again but just get a regular camp site. The cabin wasn't really worth it.
