We wound up staying during this Idaho State Park campground following a snafoo in City of Rocks National Reserve in Idaho forced us to leave that campground and discover a place to remain for a couple of nights. We pulled our our maps and phones and located several state parks along southern Idaho’s stretch of Interstate 84. Being late inside the day, and checking the amount of sites previously reserved online, we hoped to snag a site at Three Island Crossing, what appeared to become a wooded campground down the old Oregon Trail and also the Snake River. We arrived later inside the day and located this to become a convenient oasis located just a few miles from the interstate. Luckily, we snagged a beautiful site and loved it such a lot, decided to remain not only one night, but three !
There will be two main campground loops here, both just as wooded, shady and beautiful. We‘re placed inside the lower loop,
the Trailside sites, instead of the upper section, the Wagon Wheel loop. Interior roads are paved, and campsites offer level sites and many of space and shade, together with a campfire ring and aluminum picnic table. Sites inside the Trailside loop have paved pads, while sites inside the Wagon Wheel loop have gravel pads. All sites have water and electric hookups. Both loops offer restrooms, and wide open common areas where one can play catch, Frisbee, or maybe whatever you wish ! The upper Wagon Wheel loop includes a camp host who also sells ice and firewood. The lower Trailside loop has two large shelters which may be enjoyed by larger groups wishing to collect for any common meal or event. A few small KOA style cabins can also be found for rent.
The campground includes a disc golf course and also a shuttle (Saturdays only ) that takes you straight into the small, dilapidated town of Glenn’s Ferry. We found the town to become a bit disappointing. The most attraction this is actually the Oregon Trail History and Education Center. This learning space offers several interactive and child-friendly exhibits and also a movie upon the struggles of these traveling the Oregon Trail, together with the significance from the Glenn’s Ferry and Three Island Crossing. A glimpse from the Oregon Trail is seen from the middle, and also a meager gift shop may possess a souvenir you desire.
Adjacent towards the campground is The Crossings Winery. A trail leads coming from the upper degree of the campground towards the winery ; we road our bikes on the most road. This can be a excellent spot to get a meal and revel in some wine tasting ! They in addition have a golf course on-site.
