Tucked into the Southern part of Idaho is Castle Rock State Park and the City of Rocks Preserve. The City of Rocks is a premiere destination for rock climbers, but can also be enjoyed by hikers and mountain bikers from spring to the fall. There are loads of hiking and biking trails in both areas and these also connect to trails on Forest Service and BLM lands.
Campervan camping can be found in City of Rocks or in Castle Rock State Park. The campervan sites in City of Rocks Preserve are all dirt sites with limited services, but you get to camp right among the rocks. Here is a link to the map and click here to reserve. You will want to try and reserve ahead of time since there are limited sites and high demand. Campervan sites in Castle Rock State Park have more services than those on the preserve. The Castle Rock State Park campground is call the Smokey Mountain Campground. The Smokey Mountain Campground is not located in the main State Park unit, but is instead just south of Almo, check out this map for details and click here to reserve. There is not a lot of shade so it is nice to have a campervan for hanging out at when you need a break from the sunshine. We also can provide a free standing awning if you need even more shade.
Campervans available for rent in Boise, ID and Salt Lake City, UT.
