“Nestled along the river with electricity and water”

Reviewed May 06, 2018

Overall Rating

Nightly rate reflects a $2 per night discount for 60 and over.

This is really a nice little park that it well maintained but a little overwatered from sprinklers.

Fishing, boating, hiking and a senic drive along Hell’s Canyon. There is a small store that also sells gas and diesel just three miles back the road. Not much else around.

This park was full over the weekend. They are now taking online reservations. There are several parks run by Idaho Power in the vicinity.

No cell with either ATT or Verizon. Park does offer 15 minutes of WiFi every day. After that, it’s $5 a day, $10 for 3 days and $25 a month. WiFi is provided by Pine Telephone. 10 Meg down and not bad. Note, once you pay your Voucher WIFi fee online, you’ll receive and voucher code by email. You need that code so save you 15 minutes to check your email for the code. The WiFi works best in the center campground sites. We were at the end of the sites and had to walk down a few for access. Took our chairs and enjoyed the view of the river.

Best sites seem to be in the middle of the campground. Only a couple pull thru but several back-in that would accommodate 45’. Have a look at sites 51 and 49. They’ll let you park your tow vehicle in the parking lot.

“Copperfield is a shady green riverside oasis on a 100 degree day.”

Reviewed Jun 13, 2016

Overall Rating

This Idaho Power Company "Utility" campground was a total surprise in this land of rustic National Forest Service campgrounds and forest camps. Fueled by plentiful water-powered electricity, this deluxe but remote campground along the Snake River doesn't cut any corners and the $16 dollar a night rate ($10 for tents) is super reasonable.

The only reason we didn't stick around is that it was too early in the day, the temp was 100 degrees and climbing, and we needed to make some more progress towards home. Otherwise, I can't think of a better spot in the hot summer. We'll definitely check out more campgrounds with the Utility label on them in the future.

Rates are cut in half during the off season which is November through March. There's a sign (dated 2012) saying that WiFi is free for 15 minutes every 12 hours, but we didn't try it.

Other Idaho Power Company "Utility" campgrounds on the Idaho side of the Snake River are Woodhead, McCormick and Hells Canyon. If they're anything like Copperfield, they are well worth visiting.
