Date of Stay: May 9, 10, 11, 2012.
Weather During Stay: Spring weather - sunny every day, windy and cold one day, lows around freezing and highs in the 60’s.
Sites: 25 sites, of which 6 or 7 are pull-throughs. All face west; wide gravel strips between sites. All of the pull-throughs are long enough for a 40’ rig, and quite flat. The back-ins were somewhat shorter, and some of them were too sloped to accommodate us.
All sites have water and electricity; back-in sites have 30 amp; most or maybe all of the pull-through have 50 amps. No picnic tables or fire rings at sites, but several covered picnic tables in the grassy area of the park. No dump station in the park, but there is a large, free dump station one mile away. Bathrooms are pit toilets and there are no showers.
Not much shade at the campsites, but they all look out towards beautiful green lawns, Rock Creek, and trees and park pavilions beyond. This is a park frequented by locals, walking their dogs, joggings, pushing strollers. Very friendly.
Phone/radio/TV: Verizon signal for phone and aircard was occasionally interrupted, but usually worked. No obstacles for TV satellite. Half a dozen or so channels on the air antenna, four of them excellent Idaho PBS. Local NPR on 91.7.
Elevation/Landscape/Terrain: This campground is situated in a canyon; Rock Creek runs down the middle of it, with thick green grass on both sides. Up top, there is a gravel operation and busy Addison Road; down in the canyon, it is lovely, green and quiet. Elevation is around 3,600 ft.
Lighting/Noise: No obtrusive lighting, and it was very quiet at night.
Favorite Sites: We picked a pull-through, as they were longer, more level, and offered 50 amps for the same price as 30 amps.
Hiking/Walking: Very nice walking here. Paved paths go off in different directions, one of them about a mile long (through the picnic area of the park, which is accessed by a separate road). There also are several spectacular paved walks along the rim of the Snake River Canyon, a couple of miles away.
Comments: This was an enjoyable stop for us, a little hidden oasis in the small city of Twin Falls. The price was reasonable for the services provided, and the hosts were very helpful and friendly. Finding the driveway was a little tricky (look for the Westwind Homes sign), and the narrow, downhill driveway into the campground is a bit intimidating, but easily doable. We would return here.
