“Great boondocking ”

Reviewed Nov 05, 2015

Overall Rating

On our way into Murdock Campground we saw a beautiful spot and decided to pull over and just boondock. There weren't and signs saying we couldn't camp there and we have been told that in Idaho the only places you cannot camp are marked. The spot was beautiful. It was mid October though and the sun hid behind the mountains quite early in the evening and didn't shine on us until late in the afternoon. It got down to a chilling 18'. We would absolutely camp here again, maybe just a little earlier in the season.

“Drove by this campground on the way to boondock”

Reviewed Jul 07, 2015

Overall Rating

We were going to stay here because it had good verizon cell service, but you can drive down the road another .25 mile and find awesome boondocking sites along the river. Idaho is a boondockers paradise. You can camp anywhere unless posted and we did. We booked sites in advance before we arrived not knowing what we'd find. Most of these campgrounds are pretty dusty as well as the FR roads. I'll put some free sites on the map.
