Camped right by the river with the sound of it running by drowning out any highway noise.

Clean site with picnic table and fire ring.

“Great spot along the Blackfoot River”

Overall Rating

This is is a great spot along the banks of the Blackfoot River. Despite being quite close to Highway 200, and even being able to see traffic pass by, there wasn't much highway noise.

It seems like a popular spot for both camping and day use fishing. Even so, we arrived at 6 pm on Friday and found several spots still available.

Each site had a fire ring and picnic table. About 1/2 of the spots were right along the water. There were several vault toilets and the one we used was very clean. No trash cans that I saw but there were several bear boxes.

Verizon cell service was voice/text only. No data service.
