If you want to hang with the locals, stay here! The residents are very friendly and gave us pointers on where to go. The city is great for biking and walking and there are tons of restaurants within 5 minutes of the park. Another plus is it's lined with trees, that provide shade from the hot Austin sun.
Very welcoming and accommodating staff. Easy to talk to and very friendly. Every guest gets a little plush snake, which was a special surprise to our 4-year old son. There's a fun playground, pool and jacuzzi. Two laundry rooms, only a $1.25 - 1.50 each machine. The front desk provides quarters and fire wood. Interesting fact about Idaho: only stores that sell liquor are liquor stores, can't buy it from grocery stores or Wal-Mart (which is just down the road). The sites are close together and nearby cabins, but we didn't mind. We booked one night, and added another to give us time to explore Snake River and relax at the site.
A nice little slice of history and a dose of outsider art to wake you up along the road. You can easily spend a half hour to an hour walking the site, taking photos and discovering interesting little relics of the past. There is a good amount of history and info on the bulletin board as you walk-in. Sign the guest book and ... make sure to wear shoes, not sandals. Lots of glass and tons of crickets(? or some type of grasshopper looking insect). There are snakes too! So keep your car/rv closed!
Definitely not for everyone, but as a lover of art, this was a highlight on our way to Yellowstone.
Decent, convenient little park. Great accommodating service and sparkling clean bathrooms. More of a permanent living park for most of the tenants, but very well kept, and walking distance to a grocery store and a dollar store across the street.
You must stop here. It's worth the short detour. Driving through the town, you'll never guess that this majestic fall sits just a few miles away from the highway.
