Ponderosa State Park in McCall,Idaho is one of the crown jewels of the state park system and a great place to go camping with a Wandervan campervan. It is recommended to make reservations ahead of time to ensure you will get a great campervan spot. We recommend the peninsula campground for your next trip. There is lots of shade and each site has a water spigot and then bathrooms and showers are conveniently located in a number of spots around the campground. The other campground at ponderosa is mainly targeted towards large recreational vehicles and the spots are much closer and further from the lake.

Bike and Walking paths run around the campground area and there is easy access to the water on a nice beach just a couple of minutes walk from the campsites. You can use the main bike path to access most of the park and explore more bike trails or even check out a couple of the wonderful hikes.

At the northern most end of the park is Osprey Point which has some spectacular views and more great trails. If you are driving or riding on the main park road to Osprey Point you will find a parking lot at the point where the road turns into a one way. From here there are a number of options. You can continue on the road to the high point or explore the Bay Trail which descends to the north. There is also the Ridge Trail or the Huckleberry Trail to try out. There is really lots of great family options all around the park to have fun with and explore.
