We enjoyed our stay. The camping facilities were clean and the birds gave a concert every morning. The other campers were friendly and easy to get along with. The weather was the only problem. We arrived in a heat wave but the trees in the tent area helped. It would be helpful to have the store open early than 8:00 A.M. on the weekends, if possible, for the purpose of ice and etc.

Beautiful location. Poorly maintained facilities. No hot water, toilet paper, dirty unkept restrooms and shower. The spigot in shower broken.

This made for a relaxing evening away. The place was very dog friendly (though the dog park wasn't the best), but the staff was kind, genuine, and helpful. The biscuits and gravy were actually good in the morning, it was well maintained, quiet, and in a beautiful location. Besides the burn ban, this was a great little night away...

This is a very clean and nicely arranged Kampground. It sits along the Snake River and I was amazed how few bugs there were. I attribute this to the placement of the garbage cans which was away from the campsites. Very clean, great people who manage it. The only reason I didn't give this 5 stars is the store/restaurant didn't open until 9 am.

We love your location because it is far enough away that we don't have the crowds. When we come back in July we are staying in a water & electric site, it would be nice if those had fire rings also.

It was a great campground. The grounds were clean, it was quiet, and the grass tent sites were super nice. Overall it was a great trip and I will definitely come again!

Nice clean campground. Staff was very helpful. Store has everything you might need for your stay. I would recommend this campground to anybody especially if they have boat.

The best KOA of the dozen we stayed at. The manager, Bob?, kept his resturant and store open late when he saw how tired we are. The food served is fantastic, fresh, and well prepared. The manager just bent over backwards to smile and help. I can't say enough good things about this KOA and the people who work there. Thank you!

Personnel were friendly and efficient! Store & Restaurant were all I could want! Only I wish doggie bags (for doodoos) would be handed out @ check-in to ENCOURAGE Dog Owner Awareness of their Responsibilities! I was gone from my tent site for 3 hours and came back to 2 different doggie piles. There is a baggie available at the Dog Trails/Park but Responsibility is needed in People Areas, too!

Great place very quiet with no traffic noise. We could have had a garbage basket closer to the side we stayed on.

Staff were all friendly. Bathroom/shower facilities are dated, but functioned as needed. Grass in tent sites is in nice shape, so no dirty/dusty camping gear. Stayed two nights as an alternative to fleabag motels down the road, while attending local event. Price was right.


Thanks for the comments. We try hard to keep the grass in nice shape!

Great...nice people and the camping area looked very nice. Fishing was great but catching was terrible. We'll be back.


Early spring fishing is tough! By about mid May things should really pick up. Before you schedule another trip back, give us a call for a fishing report. A hint is our Catfish derby starts May 16th!

Had a great time tenting one night at the KOA prior to going on a hike up the Palouse Canyon. Jim and Angela were great hosts. We were the first tenters of the season and enjoyed the newly installed fire ring and privacy fences. Thanks again!

I like this place and will come back, the only problem I noticed is that when there is a large number people present as this weekend there is not a sufficient number of toilets.

Jim runs a good ship. used this as our base for canoe /hike trip. clean and comfortable.

Park was clean.Staff was friendly & very helpful.Sites are small.Extremely loud trains went by twice in one night after midnight.Great for the fisher.Great store and cafe.Nearby swimming was great.If you plan to visit the nearby state park it will cost a day use fee of $10 but it is worth it.We had a good time there. 2 adults, 3 kids (age 3-11).

We had a great stay. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The only negative thing I have to say was the WiFi didn't reach our site.

They lost our reservation. We got a site with no hookups which would have been ok except we were out of water and they would not let us get any.

The staff and store were great like last time. The improvement on the tent sites was nice (not having to worry about the gofers).

Clean, safe, friendly, responsive, accommodating - adjectives galore! A five star camping adventure!!!!

This is probably the worst KOA I have ever stayed at and I've been to a lot of KOA's. The manager treated us like we were stupid when we asked questions about the burn ban. Then the men's bathroom was horrible and had feces in the shower.

Nice grass area for under the tents! Very nice and accomodating in the store! Great place!!
Jun 29, 2013
I got there late and left early, so the store was not open for any of my stay.

The camp ground was clean, quiet, and not very crowded. We came here for the fishing and were suppose to stay for two nights. We only stayed for one because of the rain but that's not KOA's fault. Overall it is a nice campground and we will most likely return.
