“on the oregon trail!”
Three Island Crossing State Park is a history-focused public recreation area in Glenns Ferry, Elmore County, Idaho, United States, that interprets the site of a ford of the Snake River on the Oregon Trail. The state park features camping, cabins, disk golf, and a visitors center with interpretive exhibits. The site was used as a river crossing until 1869 when Gus Glenn built a ferry across the river about 2 miles upstream. The land was deeded from the city of Glenns Ferry to the Idaho Department of Parks and Recreation in 1968 and was formally opened to the public as a state park in 1971.
These directions took me to an abandoned house, although there is a sign off the main road showing where to go.
THREE ISLAND CROSSING STATE PARK CAMPGROUND – GLENS FERRY, ID 08-16-2019 $44.22
Excellent municipal park – quiet – among the trees and lots of green grass
Most recent stay was June August 18, 2019 ~ We camp in a Little Rig "Tear Drop” style RV w/o toilet or shower ~ plus we like to eat outdoors using the picnic table and set up our dining canopy for sun and weather protection and thus rely on condition of campgrounds facilities and being nearby our site ~ so our critique is focused in that area
Restroom/shower building needed some TLC and showed its wear lacking general maintenance. It was clean inside but it ended there. Would have rated this park a 5 star but because of the lack of maintenance in the restroom/shower building it gets a 3 star. Very dark and dim inside - needed the light bulbs replaced and another light fixture would have helped. No hooks at the communal sink area for your hand towel or other stuff. The bench in ADA shower stall in the communal room was in the down / locked position and would not raise up against the wall - difficult to take a shower. The faucets on the sinks are metered push down type but would not stay on when pressed down. Let go of the faucet and it shuts off. Hard to soap up and then wash your hands, Could not get warm/hot water. There is a separate/private ADA shower room that you enter by a operate door on the the outside of the building. It has a sink, toilet and shower. The shower head remained in the down position and when turned on washed your feet / not your hair or body - would not stay in the up position. Light-bulb outside the men's room needed replacing - very dark at night
We reserved site 82 (a long pull-thru site) through Reserve America, an easy process; had a 30 amp electrical and water hookup. There is a dump station on site at the top of the hill as you exit the park. Campground set up in an oval loop with rv sites on the outside and restroom/shower building in the middle – easy access. Green grass and shade trees everywhere, an open and airy campground with ample room between sites – no crowding here. Well cared for, grass was cut, trees provided ample shade, paved roadways and site pads. Each site has a nice aluminum picnic table and fire pit and all sites good sized – a very relaxing atmosphere.
Beautiful camping spots!
