“Quiet spot; Great bird watching”

Reviewed Jan 08, 2016

Overall Rating

We were traveling through on our way to Salt Lake City and wanted a quiet campground away from I-84. This park is on a small lake SE of Twin Falls along Hwy 30. Highway 30 travels in the same direction as the interstate so we didn't feel like the park was too far out of the way. It is primarily an agricultural area with lots of farm truck traffic but still quiet. We were the only campers on an October weeknight.

The sites are gravel/dirt. The sites are okay width but short enough that we had to unhook our 20 foot trailer and park the truck sideways. We were off-level by half a bubble. We had 30A electric and water but no sewer hookup and the park has no dump. Site 21 has a nice lake view.

There were lots of birds on the lake including cormorants, western grebes, pied-bill grebes, seagulls, terns, loons and asstd ducks. There is also a large roost of red wing blackbirds nearby. Great fun to watch! There were also a lot of flies...annoying but did not bite.
