For what it is, Beaver Dick Park is a great value. Quiet, tranquil, and easy access for a 38 ft. 5th wheel. NO hookups! Strictly dry camping. Located about 5 miles W of Rexburg - and know that there is NO sign saying "beaver dick" or "county road" from Rt. 33. Instead it says "historical point". There is a line of trees (that associate with the stream) - and - I would not call any of the sites "waterfront". Your views are basically of trees and a playground. There is a stream (slow moving in September) and it is on the property - but no sites are along it. Camping here becomes free on Oct 1 and continues until the following Spring. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is a gem of a county park. Clean and hardly used. Excellent Verizon 4G. Easy to find. Very little road noise. Has 2 small playgrounds, covered BBQ areas and a boat ramp. Nice place to stop over for a night or a few days. Handy garbage cans at each site. Mostly for smaller rigs, but there are a few sites at the back that can handle larger rigs like ours (40ft). Big Plus - if you stay 5 nights the cost is only $15 (that's $3 per night). Plenty of shopping in Rexburg, 5 miles away. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Not really Big Rig Friendly, the sites are on dirt in the sun, narrow, looking at a barn and a discarded washer. This is in PA book. No tables, no outside sitting. No one here when we got here. Called and was told which site to take. We planned to stay one night only, otherwise we would have pulled out. This RV Park seems to be an after thought of a farmer. We camped here in a Motorhome.
No one was available to help me find my space for my big rig - It fit but it was very disconcerting. My door from my RV was about 4 feet or less from the next door neighbor. They said they had 50 ampere power but it was extra. There were no picnic type tables or any type of amenity like that available. I got the impression that the owner and his wife were not really interested in anything but getting their money. I told them that I was dissatisfied with the site and wanted to leave within five minutes of their arrival to my site. They were only interested in the money and made it very clear that they were going to charge me the full amount if I drove away. I should have done that and regret the fact that I didn't. I would not recommend this park to anyone. Pulling over to the side of the road would be better and save you the $23.00. I used my PPA. I really thought I was going to a great place when I read their website. Buyer beware! We camped here in a Motorhome.
We saw this park listed in Passport America and tried to call them before going. No answer! We decided to give it a try anyway, and it is definitely NOT a "big rig friendly" park. We managed to squeeze our 40' motorhome and tow car through the very narrow, rock- & tree-bordered roads. We did not see any site that would accommodate our rig. We found the exit and went elsewhere. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here because it was listed in the Passport America directory. I called ahead to reserve a site and was told to just come on in and someone would stop by to collect the fee. This CG was listed in PPA as a 5 star rated resort. What a shock. We should have pulled out but chose to stay which was a mistake. The gent stopped later to collect the site fee that was listed as $17 and he did some math. and my total cost was $24. I called PPA and reported this CG and hope it will no longer be listed. This is a warning to everyone, DON'T STOP HERE. We camped here in a Motorhome.
If you like to let your pets run free this is the place for you. No leash needed, even for the owners dogs. Very narrow sites and driveway into the park. No grass in the pull through sites. The Wi-Fi was sporadic at best. The rate is based on weekly rate. There is only 1 washer and 1 dryer. Men's restroom was out of order. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
If you enjoy a quiet spot with cows and open fields, this is a great place to stay, especially for a month or more. Yellowstone, Jackson Hole, Tetons, Island Park, Rexberg, and other places of interest are a day drive away. Regarding the facilities (such as restrooms or laundry) or play areas, we did not have a need for these amenities. I noticed grassy areas and swings. This is a small park with a few long term residents. We have a 36 foot fifth wheel which easily parked. Also we have an active dog. The serene setting made it easy to take walks without restrictions (next RV park we visited would not let our dog on the grass). We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The only thing going for this park is the grass and trees. It is a poorly maintained park and we will now let Passport America know of this. Obviously, the owners wrote up their own description for the PA book. It is all untrue. The gravel interior road is narrow with trees and bushes alongside. Our 40' motorhome got its side scraped. We would definitely recommend large rigs to head for the farthermost area to park, not the first one because you'd never get out of it. Electric was advertised as 50A but we only had 30A. The laundry had one washer/dryer in a tiny, extremely room. The restroom was locked. The gathering "patio" as is mentioned had chair & tables but they were layered in dirt. The basketball court is next to a junk pile & had a huge discarded storage unit next to it that was ready to topple over on a child as soon as a ball hit it - very dangerous. The volleyball court had rusty poles leaning over. There are many outbuildings/sheds on the property along with cabins and houses amidst piles of junk and old machinery. The office was closed when we arrived so we just parked. A gal came up and said she couldn't find the key and they would catch us later. Later never came but because we're honest folks, we left the advertised $17 Passport America cost in an envelope and taped it to the door. We didn't include extra for the air conditioning which is a rip-off. The sites are very narrow and luckily the park wasn't a bit busy (we wonder why?) so that we had some elbow room at the site and also maneuvering into the park. The pull-throughs had no shade but there were a few scattered sites under trees. This park could be wonderful if the road was widened a little and the grounds cleaned up. We noticed a for sale sign so perhaps there's hope. We would not recommend this park but if you decide to go the directions are, from Rexburg and Hwy 20, go south of town 4 miles then a left just beyond MP329 and go across the highway then turn right. Continue straight across the bridge to the campground. Our Verizon Aircard worked for the internet. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The price reflects the monthly rate, plus metered electricity. We had some problems with water pressure but they were addressed quickly. We were in a front pull-through where the sites are short and narrow but the back sites are long enough for your tow to park behind. Our Sprint phones and Verizon Air card worked well. The water was good and the 50 amp electric consistent. This park is owned by a retirement age couple trying to run a 100-acre farm with crops and cattle plus the RV park, B & B, and cabins. We saw them work very hard during our stay. They were always very pleasant with us. We enjoyed evening walks along the farm roads past the rushing streams, crops and cattle. Since we grew up around it, the old farm equipment sitting out back did not bother us, we found it very interesting. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Uh, well, pretty trashy; crowded and the people here are not that nice. There are few choices in Rexburg. I have stayed at Rainbow Lake, campground before but didn't this time because we missed the exit and were tired. Big mistake. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Park is on a working farm and looks like an abandoned junkyard. Laundromat has one washer and one dryer. Dryer takes two hours to dry a single load. Restrooms have not been cleaned. Getting in and out with a big rig is tight getting around trees and junk. PPA book said this is a 5 star resort, if this is true then Motel 6 is a Ritz Carlton. Charge $4.00 a day extra for electricity in addition to the $17 charge for a full hookup. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I am writing this in response to the August 2008 of the other RV review written by the unnamed party. I was parked next too the RV Motorhome that is referred to in the other review. The owner was really nice to the guy, the guy had an $800.000.00 motor home towing a new GMC SUV. This guy was so belligerent to the owner, who was really a nice guy. This guy came into their nice park and started yelling at the owners wife, who went away crying. I overheard the owner come out and tell the guy He would gladly refund his money and asked him to leave. I overheard him say that He was drinking and was not going out on the highway. So the owner was nice enough to let him stay. I would not have been so nice. I think Passport America should pull this guys membership-and I hope he gets caught drinking on the road. The bad thing is that He will probable run into someone on the road and hurt them instead of himself. I am so happy to write this in support of the Sheffield RV Park in Rexburg, ID. We camped here in a Motorhome.
First impression - dust. Second impression - junk. We were assured we would get a 50 amp site with full hookups, and the owner told us he would not be at the campground when we arrived. We were told to find our site and set up; we'd be checked in in the evening. We arrived and tried to locate a 50 amp site to no avail. Actually, there were 2 available, but we had passed them before we stopped at the office and started walking around the open sites. The 50% price offered through Passport America was to be $17 plus an electric charge in summer. It turned out to be a $4.50 charge for 30 amps, which we connected, or $6.00 for 50 amps, which we did not find. Total charge for our 30 amp site was nearly $23.00. The campground description in the Passport America book says, "5 Star Rated Resort". Actually, it's a 0.5 star tight, junky park where you might want to spend an overnight if you were in a pinch. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground has limited facilities for larger rigs, and they have somewhat deteriorated and are barely large enough. The only available wifi is near the owner's home. However, the owner was friendly and helpful, and that helped a good deal. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park can accommodate big rigs, but some of the sites take some maneuvering to get squared away. We have two slides and had enough room, but a couple of times the awning had to be put away to make room for the vehicle next door to fit between us and a fence. There are several sites around the park with heavy tree coverage, but the pull-through sites are in open, gravel, treeless lots. We were parked behind the office in one of the pull-through lots and the road out had the appearance of a back alley; lots of trash and junk scattered around. It could use some cleaning up. The owner and campground hosts were very friendly and helpful. Rexburg is an interesting town, in that it is almost exactly halfway between Jackson, Wyoming and Yellowstone National Park. Our price reflects a week @ $140. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Not bad for overnight stay. Appearances are run down. It could use some clearing up of junk. Staff and owner are really pleasant. We needed 50 amp hook up, but all were taken. So we hooked up to 30 and blew their breaker at the main breaker box twice. Only had one ac on and nothing else. The RV next to us was running 30 and had a 50 in his box so we ran the power cord under his coach and had no more problems. The people next to us said the previous rv had the same problems, this tells me they need to change the main breaker for this site. This could be a beautiful park with a little elbow grease. We would stay down the road if we came to Rexburg again. It is a PA park, but by the time they add for electric and extra people it would have been the same as down the road. PA book shows it as a 5 star rated resort. I don't see how it got that rating. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Interesting place. Entrance road was quite rough. Pullthru sites were close and difficult to get in straight. Owners were nice and helpful, but being a PA park we were disappointed with the extra charges that ran the bill up. Could be a great place with some work. Cattle on grounds in corrals, but no smell. Felt like we were in the middle of a pasture with broken down and rusted farm equipment all over the place. Gift shop was best we had ever seen, except it was never open and had to observe by looking through window from outside. My beagles loved the place!! Does not merit 5 star resort which is bait and switch routine in my opinion. Really not a bad place, just needs cleaned up a bit. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Large grass areas for every space, easy to maneuver with big rigs. Easy access off the 20. Plenty of shade for most of the spaces. Water pressure a little low, but adequate. Electrical & sewer fine. Camp host(Connie) very friendly and helpful. Be sure to visit the potato factory across from the CG and get your free bag of spuds! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Be sure you have Passport America if you stop here. There's no way this is worth $40. It's fine for a $20 overnight stop, with nice shade trees (not all sites) and good electric. Well water was smelly and the sewer was far away in our pull thru site, so we didn't use them. Got a few stations on antenna. Tiny bathroom/laundry bldg. Just one toilet and shower per gender. Bear World across the street is a fun stop and the best thing in Rexburg. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Agree with prior reviews. Still a Mom and Pop park. Nice and quiet when we visited at end of month. Wi-Fi isn't real strong in the area of the couple of 50 amp sites they have. Although we were able to log in with laptop, we couldn't get signal with iPad and phones. Our rate reflects a Passport America discount. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This really is a beautiful and quiet RV park. They have a nice grassy lawn with huge willow trees all around. The bathrooms were nice enough, only one washing machine in the laundry room though. We only stayed here one night on the way to Montana because it was cold, and there was really nothing of interest in Rexburg, but if passing through another time, I would definitely stay here another again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a nice mom and pop RV park, with shade from lovely Weeping Willows. It is actually in the town of Thornton, which is outside Rexburg. The park is quiet, and has gravel sites which we needed to level just a bit. It is easy on and off Highway 20, but don't follow Mapquest. We came from West Yellowstone, headed towards Idaho Falls. Turn left at the Shell Gas Station on 20, go over the tracks, and turn left at the stop sign. The park is on the right between two fences that say RV Park! Hosts were very nice and helpful. Yellowstone Bear Park is a must-see. Only 30 minutes to Idaho Falls - be sure to see the falls. There is a Walmart in Rexburg (not a Super) and an Albertson's with good produce. Would definitely stay again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park worked well for us. We had lots of space and the hookups all worked very well. Didn't use the laundry as it only had 1 or 2 machines and we are full timers so we do laundry one week at a time. There is a train nearby but runs maybe once per day during the day. Very quiet at night. Park manager and Camp Hosts delightful. Easy in and out to the park. Watch the mud hole in the entrance drive but other than that interior road is okay. We stayed a week and found this to be a reasonable solution for a day trip to Teton National Park, as the parks in the Jackson area were all excessively pricey. Rexburg is a nice small college town (BYU Idaho) and the young people are very pleasant. We would stay here again if back in the area. Check out the new Potato Vodka distillery in nearby Driggs. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
It's a nice, clean, and well laid out park that is typical for this part of Idaho. Around the outside are backins with 50A and full hookups, and in the middle are 30A sites that look like pull throughs but are not as the utilities are right at the back - so unless you are doing water/power only, you will need to unhitch - no biggie. There is plenty of room between the spaces, with small trees - enough room for quad slides (just). WiFi is OK but there is only 1 tower, and so if you don't have a good antenna on your laptop you may find the signal to be weak. I always carry an 1W external USB adaptor with an antenna and it's fine for me. We paid $25 for a full hookup, 50A site with Good Sam - I'm very happy with that. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The owners are very nice and very friendly. We chose a 30 amp pull thru as we did not want to unhook. We paid the $20.00 and was on our way to our site and the owner came out and stopped us and told us we would have to unhook our toad because all the utilities were at the far rear of the pull thru site. Yep they are. Very confusing because the owner was in the driveway when we pulled into the campground and stood by the MH and talked. We unhooked and stayed anyway. If you come here in a MH and are towing, expect to unhook no matter what. The WI-Fi was very very weak and we were in the middle of the park. We would probably make other arrangements next time. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Wide, long pull through sites, but only 30 amp in these. Lots of trees so satellite can be difficult. WiFi signal weak and slow. Great park for an overnight stop. Quiet, adult park with mostly long term residents in the 50 amp, back in locations. Laundry facilities are good at only $1 per wash and dry. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
It is the only REV park in the Rexburg area that offers wide big rig spaces, 50 amp service, and shade with excellent satellite access. We have stayed here several times and the owners and managers are very helpful. The only downsides are the traffic noise from nearby US 20 (common to all Rexburg REV parks), absences of cable TV, and no bathhouse. The Wi-Fi reception was excellent and dependable. Our Passport America rate for a week was only $115 -- a true bargain. We will continue to come back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice park. Green grass and trees make this a nice place to stay on the way to Yellowstone. Came here and took a visit to Rigby, the home of Philo Farnsworth, the inventor of television. Must see the museum they have with some of his inventions. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Rates are cash ONLY for 50amp service. Sites for 50amp are back-in only, but pretty level and well spaced. Small park that is actually located in Thornton, about 5 miles south of Rexburg off Hwy 20. Amenities are few, but nice people. Would stay again on the way to other places. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Older RV park with large weeping willow trees. Site are grass and gravel. Very quiet and staff was friendly. They gave us good ideas for thing to do and see in the area. Our $20 rate was for 30 amp service, I believe 50 amp is more; however no checks or credit cards - cash only. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a small private campground located off the frontage road. Mostly grass with some gravel but still a very nice quite place to spend a few nights in this area. Owners were very friendly. Rates are $20 for 30 amp and $25 for 50 amp service. Has Wi-Fi but no cable. I would recommend this for a friend. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park has yet another owner. They've converted the lake for wakeboarding hence the new name Wakeside RV Park. When we arrived there was no one in the office, had to find a guy out spraying weeds so we'd know what spaces were 30 amp and what were 50 amp. Someone finally showed up about 2 PM to take our money. Wi-Fi was supposedly available but it was nonexistent. We stayed there because of family in the area. On our last night there two families came in about 10:30 PM and proceeded to put up a huge tent, unload and reload some of their supplies, trying to keep their kids, who were whiny and way tired occupied and must have pounded about 50 stakes into the hard as concrete dirt....note above it says this is a no tent campground. All this about 5' from our bedroom window. It took them over 2 hours to get quieted down and since there's no owner on site we really couldn't do anything about it. I don't know where we'll stay next time we're in the area, but it will not be there and we'll not be recommending it to anyone. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Ok, where to begin...I will start by saying that their website is very misleading. Prices were different upon arrival. Parking spots were tight, semi level and not well maintained, and the supposed walking trail around the lake was almost non-existent. At least when we checked in, the girl at the front desk was "nice" enough to give us the website's monthly rate of $450, even though it is now $500. She just said, oh well, it's the owners fault for not changing the website. All she did was take our money and name, no phone number, no site number or check out day was recorded (this info is only recorded if you self register/pay after hours). Apparently, the park (and its website) recently changed ownership at the beginning of the year. Rainbow looks like it used to be a great park, but now the restrooms are not kept clean or stocked (hair, dirt, and paper constantly on the floor), weeds have overrun a lot of the RV sites. The sites are very tight and most people took up two sites. The trail around the lake is overrun with weeds (can't even walk 1/2 way around), and if you need help with anything - good luck finding genuine customer service here. We had a package delivered here and it was opened by management (even though it was also clearly marked with my name and site #). Then on top of that, since we were not at the park (gone for 3 days), they just left it under our RV and didn't even have the courtesy to tape it back up or leave us a note. When we asked about it, the girl at the office just said that the owner did it, you'll have to talk to him. We didn't even bother since we were leaving in a few days. Also, their laundry is the most expensive we've come across so far ($2 to wash and $2 more to dry). Oh, and Wi-Fi was only available within a 20 yard radius from the office (which covered about 3-5 of the sites). Overall, we would not stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
WOW!! nice location on pond. This is a work in progress. No hand towels or toilet paper in the only restroom. Barking dogs at the monthlies. The truck camper on the ground looks bad. Sites were missing the covers on the elect plug in. A nice young lady checked us in and after the office closed we never saw any management on-site. Fairly level gravel sites and roads. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Interior roads were large stones and dirt, not gravel. WiFi signal was not available. While the staff was friendly, they too were unavailable. While we made reservations back in January, the park is set up on a 'first come, first serve' self-registration basis. We were informed that this campground changed ownership the beginning of 2013. We will not stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice, reasonably priced park at $20/night. Wi-Fi worked good close to laundry and Verizon cell and MiFi worked great. The laundry was in a new building and only $1 to wash or dry. The park is all gravel with some picnic tables and trees. You can face a small lake in pull throughs. Only 30 amp which was ok in moderate temperatures. We stayed 4 days waiting to get into an RV park at West Yellowstone. The park never seems busy and there is some road noise, but it did not bother us. Definitely I would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is very inexpensive and worked perfectly for what we needed. We just stayed for one night on our way to Yellowstone. The lake is not for use in any way (other than viewing) by park guests. No fishing, swimming, etc., but the view is nice. Plenty of room at the sites and it appears that it is set up for hook ups on both sides of each site. They could squeeze in 2 units in each space but I can't imagine this area ever being this busy. Facility is very clean and quiet. For the money: great park. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Our 2nd stay here. Priced very fairly at $20. The owner is a super nice lady, who is working very hard to make this a nice place. It is super clean, the laundry great and she said the honor system works very well. (Put your money into a secure box to pay for washer, dryer, snacks and souvenirs.) Some of the utilities, especially sewer are placed awkwardly. Wi-Fi was spotty while we were here, but worked well at the laundry. Nice views of the lake, but quite a bit of road noise from US 20 during the day. We certainly hope to stay here again next summer. We camped here in a Motorhome.
What a bargain! Full hookups, nice and private bathrooms, beautiful view of the lake, and the cheapest laundry we have ever done ($1 to wash, $1 to dry) on the road. The wi-fi was not very good (reason I didn't give a 10), but we use mifi in those cases. We got great DISH reception. We were in site 22, and it was level. We definitely will try to stay longer the next time we are this way! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here for a night in a 40’ class MH with a toad. The park is easy to get to & from Interstate 84. The park was quiet but there weren’t a lot of campers since it was the off season. The interior road and sites are gravel. Most of the park is fairly level. Not much privacy between the sites. Pretty close to being an open parking lot with just a few trees in the park. We were able to leave our toad hooked up in the site. They have full hook ups – water, electricity (50 AMP), & sewer. The sites had a campfire ring and outside table. Opening slides was easy as there isn’t much to interfere. Park’s WiFi was adequate for the night. Most, if not all sites offer a view of the southern sky to get satellite reception. No designated/fenced pet area. There were sufficient area (roads & paths) to walk the dogs. There were no bag dispensers in the park. We didn’t use the restrooms/showers or laundry room. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The RV Park is not fancy, but more than adequate for a one night or extended stay..we were here 6 nights and would definitely stay here again. It is an easy drive to Saint Anthony Dunes for atv riding, Yellowstone Park, Tetons National Park, Jackson Hole, Wyoming. The laundry and restrooms/showers are clean, the internet was great, tv several channels with our antennae. Christine, the owner, is very nice and more than willing to help in any way possible. Shade trees, large sized spaces, lake, nice area for walking. It is close to a highway, I'm a fairly light sleeper but never noticed the noise. Give it a try I think you will like it. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This place is spotless and lovely. It's right on a private lake with a walking path around it. Unfortunately, NO swimming or fishing is allowed. Owners are very nice. Bathrooms and laundry are brand new and very clean. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Depending on your needs this is an ample park to explore the area. Rexburg is a nice town with Walmart and a couple of other grocery stores. Price is right at $20 a night, but it is a little unusual not to see anyone around that might be able to help you. As someone said, you pull in, pick your site (some not very level), all 30amp, put your $ in an envelope at the office & do your own thing. The laundry room & bathrooms are brand new and they are apparently working on the rest of the park. A nice lake next door but no fishing or swimming allowed according to the sign at the front office where you put your money. About 3/4 mile walk around the lake which is nice. Would stay here again if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
So here's the deal. You make a phone reservation and get an e-mail letter back thanking you. You get there to check in and no humans -- pick any site and put your fee in an envelope. It's a rough gravel parking lot with a couple dozen trees and two rows of narrow side by side sites defined only by the utility posts. The view is a beautiful lake next door. In the middle is a great new bathhouse/laundry/rec room. For overnight, maybe two, a great bargain. Otherwise, move on. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I called this park because they were a Passport America park and because of a good review on this site. They are no longer associated with Passport America, however, their rates are only $20 per night for full hookup. They have free Wi-Fi which was fast when I had a connection. The internet connection seemed to drop out at random. They have side-by-side hookups, but were not being used that way which gave each site a large flat area to spreadout. You can park your RV or Trailer/5th wheel so the large window is facing the lake for a nice view. They accept all major credit cards. The park is clean and well kept; not your typical $20 per night campground. I would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We made arrangements to spend the night but were unable to keep our reservation. Although we did not stay here I wanted to comment that the reservation system on line is easy to use. They do not require a CC in advance and respond quickly with an email confirmation. The owner told me that they just bought this RV park in Spring of 2011 and are working on improving it. The web site is top notch and the owner's email responses to me were prompt and very professional. I understand that the bathrooms and laundry have been upgraded. So sorry that we will not be able to experience this but are looking forward to when we can. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice campground with large, level sites. New bathrooms and laundry are immaculate. Some road noise, but quieter at night. We had to leave a day earlier than we paid for and got a refund without question. We would return. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stumbled on Rainbow Lake RV Park by accident. What a treat. Picked our own spot right by the lake. All the sites and roads are rough gravel right now, but they seem to be working on it every day. Laundry and showers immaculate. Wi-Fi was decent. Quiet, restful, and inexpensive. It won't take much more for this place to be a ten We camped here in a Motorhome.
Thanks to the reviewers who mentioned the new owners and the upgrades here. We came back to Rainbow Lake, which was previously an awful dump . New showers and laundry room are super. They just need to put in more jacket hooks in the bathroom and a stool or shelf in the showers. No mention of Wi-Fi, but Verizon aircard and cell worked, and you get some Idaho TV stations on antenna. Nice to be able to choose own site. Most are level and very long, but if the place is ever full, rigs will be parked closely together. Good deal for Rexburg; be sure to see Bear World. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This used to be a Passport America park but dropped the discount. No issue as the price is very fair for value received. Appears to be in the process of upgrading so hopefully the price will remain the same. Spotless clean and brand new restrooms and showers. Parking sites are large, level and all the utilities are new. The park is next to a major highway so there is road noise, but that is exchanged for easy access. Good value. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Perhaps my rating is high due to a bad experience the day before at another park but this place was recently re-done and is nice, quiet, spacious and has a new spick and span laundry and restroom building. I haven't met the new owners yet but check in was fast, easy and self serve. The sites are big and level (I think all are gravel, and I am partial to grass), but everything else is in good order. I thought this place was a thing of the past, but nope, they are here and trying to make a nice place. My hat and 20 dollars is off to them. Thank you!!!! PS: Wi-fi sporadic but works great at laundry room. Laundry room is big and clean. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Someone got it right! I intended to stay for 2 nights but extended my stay to 10 nights. I had stayed here once before in the past (yawn), but wow, this place has undergone a major overhaul. The new owners have put in new water, sewer, and power lines and built a new bathroom and laundry facility. The bath and laundry facility is well designed and spacious. The shower stalls are big and have just the right amount of pressure. The toilet stalls are bigger than most. The laundry room is big! big! Big! The laundry room boasts 4 new washers and 4 new dryers. The laundry is on your honor and not coin operated like most. The Park supplies laundry soap for a small cost (again on your honor). The Wi-Fi was unpredictable but all the sites are large and pull through. I got to pick the site I wanted and the cost was only 20 dollars a night. The owners were great to talk to and very accommodating. He worked non-stop trying to get everything done. He said he would have everything done in a couple weeks (sure he will) maybe a couple of years. Without asking he brought us a picnic table and told us to come get him if we needed anything. All the sites were graveled and rolled solid. When my husband went to level our trailer it was nearly level where it was parked. I loved the place, the owners and the location (I was in Rexburg visiting my kids) I will be back every chance I get and I will always stay at Rainbow Lake RV. This is only the 4th RV Park I have stayed at this season between Vegas and Canada and the others were nothing to talk about and more money. Good Job Rainbow Lake! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
When the new owners of this park get done with it, it will be a fantastic place to stay. We were here for almost a week and would do it again in a heartbeat, even though they're in a mess. The laundry is open and all brand new!! We didn't use the restrooms but they're also new and available. Everything is spotless. The reason I didn't go with a 10 is there isn't much gravel on the sites yet and it was rainy and muddy. Other than that, we had no complaints. Nice big spots, side by side hook-ups (wonderful not to have your neighbors sewer hose right outside your front door!) Has lots of trees. This will be a great park one day and we'll be back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is an older park that is being upgraded. If you use Google Earth to look at campground, it shows grass. All grass has been removed, and they are in the process of redoing everything, so everything is gravel right now. When done this will be a great area. Good place to spend a night or two. Rating will go up with grass areas, etc. Will stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Kids graduating from BYU Idaho and desperate for a place to stay. Park is not officially open but an email got me a few nights at a cut rate due to some improvements taking place. They could only supply power due to the current state of construction but we were fair warned and told of several other alternatives but the park is so close to the University we couldn't pass it up. The place will be really nice when they are finished with updates. Large trees, huge sites (most at least 80 plus feet by 20) and a very nice lake to walk around. The owner lives on site and she is very sweet and accommodating. We will make it a point to stay here every time we visit or pass through. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Lovely campground, lovely views, neat, clean as it possibly could be (considering a couple of tenants that were finally booted), friendly host, level grass sites. Would stay here again since it is close to everything we wanted to see. We visited BYU Idaho campus, West Yellowstone, Bear World and made par at one of the local courses. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed a week. The campground is in need of some updates but we were told by the host that it was the end of the season and upgrades are planned before 2011. The restrooms and showers were clean but worn (again I was warned and told they will be updated). The campground is close to everything yet just on the outskirts of town. It was quiet, friendly and the host told us we only had to pay $20 a night due to the season ending. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will stay again on our way back through to Canada. We saw and used 4 showers/bathrooms not one like was said in another review. Anyway, a nice friendly place. Well worth the $. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a one shower, one bathroom RV park. The sewers are open with no screw fittings to attach to. The dogs run all over the place and little clean up by the dog people! The RV dog people amaze me in my 1-year of full timing. Very few clean up after their dogs, and they always seem to let them do their business in someone else's space! How inconsiderate can you get? We were actually chased into our RV by the neighbors dog right after we started setting up. We had to yell many times to get them to call their dog off! The owners do not make anyone adhere to the leash law policy. If you have PassPort America you can stay for $15, but if it is raining or wet you will need 4x4 to get out! Will not stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A "self-serve" operation when we were there. No management on site, but the check-in instructions were easy to understand. Looked like a couple long-termers were parked there, and only two other campers were there the day/night we stayed. Close to the highway but not too noisy. Water and electric worked fine. The bathrooms were old and could use some sprucing up, but functioned okay. Water was hot and good pressure. We would stay again. An RV dump is available. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
It was convenient to US20 and had a nice lake - but you could not use it. You could only look at and walk around it. Only had 30 amp electric even though it advertises for big rigs. They do fit nicely in pull throughs. No pads, no tables, some areas had large ruts so probably bad after a rain. If you are only using as a stop for 1 night, probably worth the $15. Looks like owner has home at rear of property so is sort of on site. His kids did the mowing, watering and cleaning the restrooms (that should tell you something). We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed here several times over the years. It has a nice laid back atmosphere. No overzealous manager anxious to get your money the second you pull in, just a simple self registration envelope and you can usually pick your own site. Oh yeah, very spacious compared to all other RV Parks. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
What a DUMP!! Place was deserted, bathrooms were trashy (only one for each sex) and housed in a shack, office shack hasn't seen life in ages. You leave your money in an envelope. Seemed that only Passport America members and big rig owners who had no place else to go, plus a few residents, were the only ones here, and not by choice. The PA rate is $15 for FHU and not even worth that. If we were really desperate again , we might stay here for the $15 , but there are much nicer places an hour or so away...parks that actually have managers on site. Tis place is an embarrassment to RVing. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We just stopped by for one night as we were passing through. Check in was no problem. Sites are kind of in a park like setting with trees and a lake. No real rv pads of any sort when we were there. Passport price made it well worth stopping by. I don't know that there is a whole lot to do in Rexburg to make it a destination, but if you wanted to stay a few days, it would be fine. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Most of what was stated before is still accurate. Sites are side-by-side, mostly large, level and grassy, no amenities, some trees (including some trees in the middle of pull-through areas), water/elec hookups at most sites. The sites are aligned N-S so our satellites worked. Signed ourselves in at the "office." At the P/A price (2 day limit) this would have been a decent place to stay. At Good Sam rates, it was way too expensive. But it's the only one that we could find close to St. Anthony to visit family. It almost filled up by dark. It's close to the freeway and a decent driving day from or to Yellowstone, but next trip we'll probably go back out to the dunes area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stopped here on the way to Yellowstone in early May. The place was deserted. It is clean and the site is fairly level. Until May 20th the rates are half, after that if you have passport America, you get half off. Overall, a pretty basic place to get WE or FU site for low $$. It was clean with lots of nice green grass and trees. Man-made lake is nothing to get excited about and the sign says all you can do is walk around it. I wouldn't hesitate to stop again for an overnighter if I was in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We camped in the summer of 2005. It is under new management. New owners do not own lake. The lake is now off limits to swimming and fishing (except for "family" members). The front office was never open the week we were there. The Manager was available by phone only. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The sights are close together but I've never seen it crowded. The entire campground is grass except for the two gravel roads. The older couple that run the place are great, The husband guides you to your spot and then helps you back in. It actually is on a small lake you can fish for rainbow trout. This is a great place to stop if you are headed to Yellowstone. We camped here in a camper.
