Pretty interesting RV park. It is more of a resort and has a golf course, river access, camping areas and is close to a small ski resort. Grass is great, water pressure was very low, power was reliable and the site was level. It is well removed from noise and there are very few lights so star gazing is great. It is a drive to even the smallest of grocery stores so stock up before you get there. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This campground was strange; spread out over close to a mile along a highway. The surroundings are spectacular, but the sites and the campground itself is very unimpressive. There were few services and the bathrooms were not cleaned often. There are a number of other nearby (within ½ mile) RV parks and I would consider checking those out carefully before staying here. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Decided to stay here as we saw they had a hot springs pool. But they have so much more. We 'camped' in their 12 space 'golf course' field lot, across the road from their little 9 hole golf course. 30 amp/water/sewer. Short walk takes you to their restaurant/pizza parlor; the 1st tee on the golf course (only $9.50 to play). The 'cool' pool is 75 degrees or so with large waterslide. The 'hot springs' pool and hot tub was 92 and 105 degrees, respectively. Absolutely wonderful for relaxing. Note that water activities were an extra fee, but reasonable. All day pass or one time use available. Verizon cell/air card good, minimal AT&T service. We did get Direct TV through a hole in the trees. Relatively large complex with many permanent residents, but they are located far from the overnight area. Small convenience store. Propane. Hard to find with GPS: call for exact directions. A wonderful find. Definitely would come back if in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A difficult campground to rate. We had seen various recommendations and were just staying overnight. On the plus side - only about 3 miles off US 26 and not hard to find, pick your own site, very very quiet and peaceful, especially at night. However many of the sites were extremely unlevel and narrow, with only a few having a view of the reservoir. The new C loop does have really large and level sites, but we decided we liked A loop better. Would probably stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a county park. The reservation number is in the park & recreation department and does not get answered all the time. It is about 18 miles from the city. It's relatively hard to find so watch the signs carefully. First come first serve, except if some how you get the park and recreation office to reserve you a site. Loop C is newer and what you want if you have a big rig. Site B13 or B15 are very level and the highest in the park. They are easy pull through. Very scenic, beautiful, and relaxing so if you just want to relax, fish, or boat it's well worth the drive. Stock up on your groceries. They are expensive in the city. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This Park is a hidden gem. Dog friendly. Grass, grass and more grass. Park host is very friendly. Rest rooms are very clean. Many Big Rig sites. Just opened new Loop "C." Great fishing in Ririe Lake if you have a boat. Slips are available. Idaho Falls is approximately 15 miles. Three city owned golf courses: lush and inexpensive. Sprinklers run around mid-night: beware of spray if windy. Will stop again. Golden Age Discount. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great park with an awesome view of the river - nice and quiet - office staff was very nice. Would be a great place if you have a boat. The restrooms and showers were nice and clean. The park was just getting freshened up for the new season. We really liked the park. Some sites are short and would be hard to set up in a bigger rig. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Worth driving over to The Ririe dam to spend a few nights here. Setting is beautiful, sites huge and level. It is off the beaten path east of Idaho Falls and a lovely way to go if you are traveling to our from Yellowstone or the Grand Tetons. It is a jewel. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a well maintained campground. Each site has a fire pit and table. There are two loops to the campground. We stayed in the A loop, and we had the only site that did not have sewer hookups. Despite that inconvenience, we did enjoy the campground. The roads/sites are all blacktop. Leveling was easy. We did receive digital TV reception. The lake can be noisy until evening. There is plenty of space between sites and the views of the lake and sunset were outstanding. If I had to choose a negative, it would be the location and we found it impossible to fish from the bank as the sides are very steep. A boat would be a must if your purpose is to fish. Regardless, a very nice campground for a reasonable price. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very well taken care of RV park. We started coming here when the park was first opened. It has been continually improved on over the years. Great place for a get away close to "home". They always have very good camp host's that are friendly and helpful! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Only reason this does not get a 10 is that I am 20 miles from town to get a good meal. But, you can't get any quieter than this. This is a great place. All paved, level slots with good water, good electric and friendly people. Dogs loved it as they could run down below the dam and play in the creek. My 3G card worked fine and cell service is acceptable. Stayed in a 36' fifth wheel during a quiet week but the reservations look like it is very busy on weekends. Save $2 with Golden Passport. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The best kept secret in RV parks. Very quiet, very spacious. Kids loved catching crawdads at the lake. Reservations are a must. I don't believe there are any bad sites. Not all have sewer hookups though. There are even handicap accessable sites: 3 on A loop. Camp hosts are very agreeable. We camped here in a Motorhome.

The park is very well kept and sites are well spaced. Many long pull throughs. Good 50 amp power and excellent water pressure. Very quiet. Park host very helpful as we didn't know how long we were going to stay. They will allow up to 14 days and said we could pay daily,as there is no weekly or monthly rate. $2.00 off daily rate of 18.00 if you have Golden Access card. We would stay again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We have been motorhoming for 13 years on a half-time basis, and this is the second best park we have ever stayed in, considering "bang for the buck". The park was a Corps of Engineers park, turned over to the county, but retaining Golden Age pass privileges! The park is remote, quiet; well-kept and watered regularly, making it very attractive. The sites are huge. In addition, it is on a reservoir with boat ramps. It is one of the best kept secrets around. The only way we found the park was through the previous review here. The only downside is that during the summer it is heavily reserved by the nearby Idaho Falls population on weekends. The management style is laid back and cooperative. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Even though I had a reservation confirmation, the RV Park Admin did not. Someone else was camped in the site I had requested so they put us in what appeared to be an expansion area. Not bad, we were almost entirely on our own, but that did not matter, read on. There are ATV trails nearby and ATV riders rode within the camp, including back and forth past our site even though no one else was camped near us. They were joy riding within the park without regard to other campers. This went unchecked by the RV park admin. Even though we were on the edge of the park, there was a highly used gravel road 2 sites away trafficked heavily by RV park admin Razor ATVs, horse drawn carts and horse boxes (trailers). It was dusty and noisy. The site was extremely narrow. We had hookups on the left and had to step down from our motorhome step because the gravel "pad" was elevated over the dirt (NOT grass) under our awning. The area under our awning was "natural". No effort had been made to level or even smooth the area. After a night of rain there were puddles along with the softball sized rocks to avoid. The vegetation was weeds. No attempt had been made to cultivate the area adjacent to the site. As noted, water and 20/30/50 amp hookups but no sewer. There is one dump station on the RIGHT as you exit the RV park, you would have to exit and re-enter the park for the dump to be on the correct side of a motorhome. While there was a dump station the hose was connected about 10 feet up a pole. It could not be reached without a ladder. The hose was about 6 feet long with no connection. It was just a cut piece of hose. So there is no way to connect a hose to rinse down the black tank with a "magic wand". Dump station was useless. The bathrooms and showers are centrally located in a nearly new building and they were very clean and well stocked/kept. There was one dumpster near the entrance to the area where we were parked. There was constant and annoying noise from either passing traffic near the site, what sounded like motorcycles on the public road, or what sounded like a gun club (skeet range) nearby. We did not observe the source of the noise, we just endured it. The camp "store" had plenty of candy, ice and drinks, but no milk! Come prepared. My impression, being as fair as I can, was the RV park is a work in progress. The showers/restrooms/hookups were all very good. The site was fairly level and gravel, but narrow. I would not consider going back anytime soon. The road out from Idaho Falls (highway 26) was almost all single lane traffic while the road was under construction. They had slurry coated the road in what passed for "surfacing". It was very dusty and getting a motorhome through the orange barrels kept me alert. I went slow enough to prevent wheel alignment damage from the huge potholes. Closest out-of-camp amenities were in Heise about 5 miles away. Signage to the RV park from highway 26 was very good. Maps on their web site only gave us an idea where they are located. There are no GPS coordinates posted and in emails, camp personnel were unable to provide these or tell me the names or numbers of nearby roads to help me get close. I took coordinates from Google Earth and crossed my fingers. This worked pretty well except mapping software would have taken me down a dirt road for the last 2 miles or so. We camped here in a Motorhome.
