“Hidden Gem - just not on a weekend”

Stayed here on a Friday night in September 2015. I however had no idea how busy this place would be!!! Lots and lots of families with small children running amuck (hey they have swimming). Had plans to utilize the hot springs pools but with the number of families heading to them in the evening we knew there was no way it would be a peaceful calming experience so skipped that. Did however take a walk down to the river which was BEAUTIFUL. The scenery is astounding and the staff was very nice!

Site 2 sucked. Hard to back into and the parking arrangements (for ones with hookups) is odd at best and they are jammed together very tightly. The tent sites are actually the best ones and none of the RV sites are truly pull through sites (if you look at the map you'll see that the pull through areas have 2 sites in each except for #9). Site 2 really wasn't long enough for my truck and trailer (19' trailer) and thank goodness they didn't try to put anyone in 3!

All that said I would definitely come back here during the week well into the off season and enjoy the hot springs (which is really the only reason to spend the $$ for this campground) but never on a weekend! Not a lot of places to walk dogs so would ding them a bit on that. Getting to the park is easy if you follow the signs as it is off the beaten path.

We planned on driving right through Challis to make in to a boondocking sight in Sun Valley but by the time we pulled into Challis we were exhausted. A quick look on our All Stays Camp and RV app and we were heading to Challis Hot Springs. I would recommend everyone do this. We requested a dry camp sight so they pointed us to a beautiful wide open field and let us park wherever we wanted. We were still in very close walking distance to the hot springs and were also able to connect to their wifi from the field. Our nightly rate included unlimited access to the pools. The hot springs were by far the coolest ones I have ever been in. The water was so clear I almost wanted to drink it. The rock bottom and close mountains made it feel so natural. There was a shallow play area for our kids. The temperature of the big pool was absolutely perfect. We played for hours without getting to hot or to cold. On the morning of our departure we just had to slip in one more swim. We didn't end up pulling out until 1:00 but they didn't seem to mind.
