“Beautiful big sky!”

Reviewed Aug 13, 2017

Overall Rating

Showers were pretty clean, decent price, everyone there was super friendly. It is hot and people do seem to stay up past the 10pm quiet time but that could have been due to the amazing meteor shower that night! The sky is so beautiful, even without the meteors. A lot of bugs, bring bug spray. You cannot off-road in the sand dunes a... more

“Otherwordly Atmosphere but HOT”

Reviewed Aug 02, 2017

Overall Rating

We needed a stop over from Oregon to farther in Idaho and had heard great things about the landscape at Bruneau Dunes State Park. It did not disappoint. The dunes and the surrounding area are very unique and make for some epic photography. We thought the campground was nice enough. Water + Electric which was incredibly necessary given ... more

“Not much to this park but the dunes”

Reviewed Aug 01, 2017

Overall Rating

It is very hot here during the summer! Pricey spot for just water and electric. The dunes are cool but at sunset, mosquitoes get insane and even with OFF on they don't leave you alone. My kids said there were flying ants on the dunes too. We did have an accident there the morning we were going to leave. My son was riding his bike dow... more

“Barren, hot and pricey.”

Reviewed Jul 16, 2017

Overall Rating

In all fairness, this was intended solely as a transit camp en route home from the Sawtooth Mountains. And temperatures over 100ºF at this low 2,600' elevation in July shouldn't surprise anyone, least of all me. However, I was grateful for the hookups when we rolled in to find 102-degree temps at 8 p.m. The few trees in the campgrou... more

“Pretty cool park - felt like we had it all to ourselves”

Reviewed Jul 14, 2017

Overall Rating

We stopped in for an overnight on a Thursday afternoon and first took a peek at Broken Wheel Campground. This is the older of the two campgrounds with slightly more mature trees. There were a few people camping in the most shaded spots, so we decided to check out Eagle Cove Campground as well. This one is closer to the dunes and had N... more

“October is the perfect time to visit this unique park”

Reviewed Oct 07, 2015

Overall Rating

We hiked the dunes starting at 9 am, which is an ideal time. 75 degrees by mid day. Definitely bring trekking poles for stability and traction in the deep sand. If you're fearful of heights, bring a calm partner! Wagon wheel CG is spotless, sparsely populated. Thoughtful layout, hot showers. Internet spotty but good enough consider... more

“Cool, outerworldly park in an outerworldly area”

Reviewed Aug 31, 2015

Overall Rating

This park is out there, in a place with really not much else at all except for the famous dunes (for which the park is named) and an observatory. Sites are nicely laid-out in 2 separate loops, either pull-through or back-in gravel sites with picnic table and fire pit. Broken Wheel is the older loop and slightly further from the dunes, ... more

“Off the beaten path but defnitely worth a visit.”

Reviewed Aug 13, 2015

Overall Rating

We ventured off 1-84 in southern Idaho to stay overnight in this park and were very pleased with it and wish we could’ve stayed longer. If you love sand dunes, hiking and wildlife, you’ll like the park and the campgrounds are nicely organized with well-spaced, private sites. Trails connect the campground loops and the dunes. We stayed ... more
