Howdy, all! Today’s AllCampgrounds finishes up our visit to Idaho.

We’ve seen some of the best public lands, including brilliant Shoshone Falls, and visited some amazing grounds for tenting.

Now let’s saddle up the old “coach” and find the best picks for RVs. Who knows where we’ll be headed to next? The outdoors is a big, big place!

Blue Lake RV Resort: Six miles south of Bonners Ferry, which serves as home to the beautiful waterfall pictured above, this northern Idaho RV resort offers six wide pull-through sites for the biggest RVs, as well as a large assortment of other RV and tent camping locales. Pull-throughs are equipped with 30 amp electric service and wireless access. There are also back-in and partial hook-up sites. A clubhouse free hot shower, fishing, swimming, and a range of other fun games and events are included. For hunters, be aware that this place is right in the heart of Idaho’s big game country!

The Ashton Inn and RV Park: 42 RV campgrounds plus several pull-throughs make this a top option for RV camping right within reach of West Yellowstone. Though there are only 11 sites for tent camping, it’s particularly diverse for RV campers, with 50/30/20 amp hookups and full sewer, water, cable, and wireless. You can check in any time of the day or night, and enjoy a day, week, or month with flexible rates. The local community, Ashton, is known for great winter sports and the annual American Dog Derby. The park also stands at the crossroads of the Idaho branch of Yellowstone National Park, and the beautiful mountains of Jackson Hole, Wyoming.

On the River RV Park: On the River holds the distinction of being the largest of all the state’s RV parks and campgrounds, so if you’ve had trouble getting reservations elsewhere, look no further! There are over 200 spaces here, with full laundry, propane, phone, internet, and an on-site dump station. On the River is not seasonal – it’s open all year, and its competitive prices and good location make it a prime choice for setting up near any of the annual events that take place in the Boise area. The Boise River is just outside, with ample walking paths for sightseeing.

RV Idaho Campground Association: If you’re hungry for more RV resorts and camp grounds in Idaho, if you really want to see all campsites there is to see before you decide, welcome to the local RV Campgrounds Association, which can tell you everything you want to know about camping and outdoor recreation in the state. Everything on fishing, hunting, hiking, and so much more is conveniently centralized in their resources, there’s a searchable database of camp grounds to choose from, and you can even get free, full-color guides and maps to RV camping and travel in the state. Don’t miss out!
