This is a beautiful desert canyon that is lush and green along the creek. The rock spires and canyon walls are a something to be seen. There are fun hikes along the creek and many caves to be explored. perfect spot for camping with kids. There are many primitive camping sites with a central vault restroom. only downside is all the thistles and rattlesnakes.
Celebration Park is a lot of fun. The river and boulders in the canyon are beautiful! There is an old train bridge, (now a walking path) to cross and enjoy trails acrosss the Snake River. In the Park their is a fun museum, petroglyph trail, and Atlatl (ancient weapon) range. I enjoyed it as an adult but my kids had even more fun. We camped well out of the main camp area and had a nice grassy area all to ourselves. I recommend taking the time to hike to Halverson lake if you visit Celebration Park. Well worth the hike! I will definitely be camping here again.
The Campground was very nice green grass with beautiful big trees by the Snake River. The nice thing about camping in October was the fact that we were the only tent campers. It appears to be much busier with warm weather. There are beautiful views of the waterfalls across the river from the Campground. The campsite is a bit spendy at $25 a night per tent compared to other campgrounds nearby that are $20 a night for up to 5 tents. The customer service was not very good as when we arrived they gave us a deal on camping since we were the only 3 families, only for the next day an employee to harrass us about not paying enough. She would not back off and was very rude. Several hours later she verified we were in fact given the deal but was still rude and seemed mad. The pool is great but a bit chilly for my liking of a hot spring with no hot tub to relax unless you pay for the private rooms.
The Campground is beautiful tucked along the Snake River and scattered with massive beautiful trees. The grass is green and the ground is soft. The group tent sites are a great deal at $20 a night for up to 5 tents. The advantage of camping in March was that there were no other tent campers, but the RV lots were quite full. Gary the camp host is a great guy and very friendly and smoothed over a situation where we had to move campsites between nights. The Banbury Hot spring is a huge pool nearly 100 years old and is the perfect temperature and a blast for all ages. If you buy a swimming pass it also gets you into Miracle Hot springs just about a mile away which is great to relax in with multiple pools and varying temperatures. Fun time!
