Great place to explore waterfalls

Ainsworth State Park is a pleasurable and supportive base camp for exploring this beautiful area. It's a 30-minute drive to either Hood River or Portland, depending on what you're looking for, and it's minutes to most of the notable falls and trails in the area. As far as I can tell most of the sites provide full hookups. Spacing between sites is generous. Bathrooms and showers are clean and well run. It's an easy place to get in and out of with almost all rigs and there are many pull-through sites. My only complaint would be that it's located fairly close to the road (route 84) and an active train route, so you'll get a bit of noise throughout the day and night. As a bonus, from camp, you can hike to the lower and upper "Horsetail Falls".

Simple, quiet, clean, and peaceful

A bit of a drive to get there but worth it. Extremely well-run campground in a beautiful setting with good access to the town of Hood River. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and wish we could have stayed longer. Poor cell service but good WiFi. Our camp host (Harold) was great. He noticed we were traveling with mountain bikes and was kind enough to lead us to some great trails just outside of Hood River. If I'm in the area again, I would definitely like to stay here for a few more days, in fact, we liked it so much here we ended up inadvertently causing a bit of an issue by getting out of our site a little later than the posted checkout time. I appreciate that Kyle (the owner) didn't make an issue of it (Thanks).

Nice campground by the river & close to town

I liked this campground and found it clean with generous-sized sites. The river runs through this site, there is a cool suspension bridge to check out as well as some amazing rock structures nearby. I have a couple of issues with it, one the sewage treatment plant is about a mile upstream. So, it's just hard to get excited about jumping in the river with that in mind. Two, it's a little difficult getting in and out of the campground for those of us with trailers and RV's, as the road in/out is narrow and without much of a shoulder. Other than that, it seems well run, is safe & clean with good bathrooms and showers.

Slow Down You're on Mountain Time

Don't let the name fool you, this is a great little RV campground for anyone traveling through the area.  They don't make you dance although they do have a very solid event calendar, so if you do have the bug to shake a rug, then this would be a good place for you. The staff is super helpful, the facilities are clean. Full hook-ups are available, and it's close to everything yet nestled in the forest. The sites are a little tight in places, but in general, you're not stacked up like sardines and still feel like you're camping. We stayed here two nights and used it as a basecamp for biking, paddle boarding, and touring Missoula and the University of Montana. It was perfect. Even got in a good round of "cornhole" with some friendly campers we met who had come all the way from Florida. Good times, restful nights of sleep, and exceptional WiFi!

Nestled in by the Salmon River

This is a cozy little campground about 20 minutes outside Salmon, ID. It's located directly on the Salmon River. It's a well-run site, is clean and has full hookups, laundry, a store, etc… If you're traveling north along the Salmon River, it's a good place to spend the night before heading up over the pass towards Lolo and Missoula, MT. No cell service, but serviceable WiFi, and its location on the river is excellent for anglers and those looking to enjoy the river. Spaces are a little tight, and there are definitely other boondocking sites along the river in this area, Wagonhammer provides a nice spot for those looking for the comforts of home while nestled in the wilderness. It's a quiet, calm, and safe place for travelers staying in everything from tents to enormous RV's.

Paradise Discovered

We really loved this little campground. Sure, it's a little close to the road, but it's so beautiful, central to the area, and is simple to get in and out of for other adventures. It's literally integrated with the "Harriman trail" which provides access up and down the valley for runners, bikers, and hikers. Sites are spacious, bathrooms, although pit toilets, are clean and potable water is readily available. RV'ers won't like this site, as there are no hookups, and clearance to some of the sites might be a little tight. We used it as a base camp to mountain bike, play in the river, and check out the Ketchum area. The camp host was present and was very kind and helpful. We were able to build a nice little campfire, cook some dinner and enjoy the area here. Sleeping was quiet, cool, and restful.

Centrally located and clean!

Easy access to central Boise in a park-like setting along the greenbelt path. We rode bikes along the path, enjoyed the river, toured Boise state and downtown, and even ate dinner without ever getting in our car. Everyone at the campground was very friendly and helpful. The facilities were clean, operational, and quiet. Got a good night's sleep, felt safe at all times. Enjoyed our stay.

Out of the way and peaceful

If you're up for driving down a bumpy gravel road for 5-6 miles, this campground is a hidden gem within Lassen. Facilities are clean, sites are decent sized and there's a beautiful lake (Butte Lake) and a couple of great hikes that you can do directly out of the campground. We did the Cinder Cone trail, which is short, exposed, extremely steep but has a great payoff in terms of view and curiosity factor. We stayed for one night only, as we were passing through and I enjoyed our stay. If you're freaked out about taking your rig down a bumpy and dusty road, I would avoid this one. Otherwise, this is a tranquil spot away from the masses, which easily offers a day or two of activities, including potentially serving as a base camp to see other sites in the park and area. e.g. Barney Falls.
