“Free, pretty, and clean”

Overall Rating

This campground is at a boat launch on the Owyhee River. It is a perfect overnight spot if you’re traveling the long lonely stretches of US 95. We pulled in there at sunset and we were rewarded by a pretty view of the Owyhee River.

From US 95, it’s a quarter mile down a hard packed, wash board dirt road to the small campground but easy to turn around once you’re there.

The campground is basically a large gravel lot with 4 campsites on one side along the river. Campsites are for tent camping and have passable picnic tables and fire rings. Sites were clean. Trees provide some shade. We parked parallel to one camp site with our 33’ RV pulling a van. No one else was there so we didn’t need to unhook our tow dolly. There were several spots to park an RV in the middle of the lot. There is a circular drive so it was easy to get out.

Day use area has grill and irrigated lawn.

Pit toilets were well stocked with TP and clean.

Potable water was available.

Three cars and one RV were left overnight in parking area presumably by boaters. There’s an admin building there too.

The Owyhee River is wild and scenic. Boating requires a permit.

No garbage cans; no garbage pick up.

Nearby is the pillars of Rome, a rock formation. The Rome cafe was also open the next morning.
