“Beautiful View, but Day Use Only”

Reviewed Sep 09, 2018

Overall Rating

Listed as one of the only free camp sites in Boise, we read the previous review and decided it would be our destination for the night even with 2.8 miles of gravel. The road was not smooth with serious washboards most of the way. Our rig is a truck camper pulling a 18’ cargo trailer. It was approximately 9% grade going up the hill. I would not recommend it in a rig like ours. On arrival arrival, we saw the sign for day use only. On the positive note, the parking areas are large enough for turning around and the sunset views are gorgeous!

“Nice area off the beaten path”

Reviewed Aug 28, 2018

Overall Rating

This was a little hard to get to in a 25 ft motorhome a/c the gps routed us thru the congestion of Boise from I 184 then thru surburbia with narrow streets. The road turned to well maintained gravel/dirt that we traveled for about 2.8 miles up to the top of the rolling hills. There are a lot of bike/motorcycle trails and it was quite busy in the late afternoon. We found a level spot to wait for the sunset. There are trash cans and a vault toilet. Didn’t see any signs saying Camping was allow, but also didn’t see any prohibiting it either. So we are going to give it a try. Good Verizon cell service.
