The campground offers seven single sites and one double site. Picnic tables and campfire rings are provided, as are vault toilets and drinking water. Electric hookups are available.

Natural Features

The Mesa Falls Scenic Byway leads through Idaho's backcountry to the 85-foot Lower Mesa Falls and 110-foot Upper Mesa Falls, both on the Henry's Fork of the Snake River. A beautiful rainbow created by sunlight passing through the mist is visible from approximately 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. during sunny days at Upper Mesa Falls.

The byway is home to an abundance of seasonal wildflowers. A variety of wildlife makes it home in the area, including moose, bear, deer, elk, marmots, coyotes, martens, eagles, osprey and many other small mammals and birds.
