Great place!

This is now one if my favorite RV Parks. We have stayed in so many RV Parks that make you feel like a can of soup on a grocery shelf, but not this one! The spaces are nice and big! I think all spaces are full hookups, but they price the space according to size, whether it has trees, and whether it is along the river. We took a cheap space with none of the above, but it was still great! We could see some mountains and enjoyed our view of the trees. The park seems well cared for. My husband used the laundry facility and said it was nice. We didn’t use any other amenities, but they have a pool, spa, miniature golf, and sometimes offer food socials in their recreation area. There was a rather large population of ants, but nothing annoying. We will be back on our travels up I-17!

Price is good!

This RV Park is well advertised along the highway saying $20 for full hookups. Those sites were all full - mostly with long term tenants, but they had a group of sites with electric and water, no sewer… same price. We took it for two nights, then decided to stay a third night because our next reservation wasn’t for a few days. This RV Park is sandwiched between too roads, so there was quite a bit of low-speed traffic noise. The park could use a little cleaning up and mowing, but it wasn’t terrible. Some of the electric and water sites are basically on the park road, but there are some a little better. They do have a small laundry area, but we didn’t use it. We didn’t use their shower facilities either. They do provide free cable which was a big draw for my husband - Monday Night Football!

Rocky road

This campground is only a half mile off the highway, but the road is in terrible shape. It has lots of sharp rocks and is very rough. There are lots of campsites and about seven were taken when we arrived. We could not find anything close to level to park our 5th wheel. After about an hour, we finally got it to where it was basically level. It is good to hear the wind through the pine trees, but we probably won’t come back to this campground.

Keep going

We had just spent two nights along the highway due to RV needing repairs. We picked the first RV Park we could find. Fortunately, they could accommodate us, but it was a less than desirable place. First, it was extremely tight access; we had to ask a neighbor to move his truck. It was a full hookup, but the tap was broke so we had to tap into the neighbor’s waterline with a splitter. You can’t choose your neighbors but many in the park gave us concerns for our safety. We had to park our truck at the end of the park due to the limited space… wish more RVers would have been as considerate. We didn’t use any of the facilities so can’t comment on cleanliness. There is a large open trench by the trash cans, so watch out if you have children.

Nice place to call home for a couple of days!

This small campground is right along the highway so it has easy access… and some highway noise. It is small, but we were there by ourselves 2 of the 3 nights we stayed. Camp sites are well spaced with their own fire pits and picnic tables. The roads and campsites are paved. However, they had just cut the grass and weeds, which we appreciated, but they left all their clippings around the campsites, so we used our rake and broom to clean it up. The parking area for the small boat launch is nearby, so there were people around most mornings and evenings. This is right on the Salmon River so a good place to camp if fishing the Salmon. No cell phone reception for Verizon. There was an osprey nest right by our campsite which had some babies and parents which were interesting to watch.

Fabulous !

We enjoyed our stay here so much, we stayed an extra couple of days! This is a well-kept, well-designed BLM campground. Some spaces have shade trees, some do not. Many provide nice views of the lake. Sites are all paved as are the roads (no dust). They all have fire pits and picnic tables - some with shade covers. Lots of pull through sites. Each site has water and electricity. There is a RV dump within the campground. Can’t beat it for $14 per night! Our Verizon cellphone services wasn’t very good, but that’s my only complaint.

Rough and dusty road

The campground was alright. Nice big campsites giving you plenty of room. Sites had fire pits, picnic tables, and were somewhat level. It sits right beside the reservoir so a nice view. The road getting there was extremely dusty! And it was six miles of dust! There are a few pit toilets and there is potable water in the picnic area. You can dump at the KOA down the road for a small fee.

Love this campground !

Nice campground! We stayed in Space #1 which is the most private! Picnic tables and fire pits are provided. They have pit toilets and our space was nicely shaded. Our 5th wheel is 28 feet long. The road is paved as are the sites! Interesting history on the campground name.

Private campsites!

This was a comfortable campground for RVs and tents. Our 5th-wheel is 28 feet long and fit nicely in the space. Some bigger ones may have trouble fitting into the spaces. All campsites have fire pits and picnic tables and are somewhat private. Many are on a two-tier level and actually have steps with railings to go down or up to the picnic table and fire pit. There is a water with pump handle and a couple pit toilets, but that’s it! Plan to drive a long way if you forgot anything! It is close to the highway making it easy access, but you do get some highway noise at some spaces. There is a campground host, but that person was gone two out of the three days we were there.

Pretty but tough for RV

This is a small campground (using the term campground loosely ) in a little canyon along a creek. It’s quiet and beautiful scenery. I was skeptical about going here, but read somewhere if you take one of the first two campsites your larger RV should fit. Fortunately, the second space was available. It took a lot to get us leveled, but we did it. Unfortunately, they have banned campfires at this time which was the main reason we wanted an out-of-the-way spot. It is on about 3-1/2 miles of dirt road, but the road is in pretty good shape. We are concerned about getting out of here; may have to back down the road a ways to get turned around. Our 5th-wheel is 28 feet long.
