Micone Ranch

1 site · RV, Tent28 acres · Ontario, OR
Our place is 28 acres, and you can camp anywhere. We can host many people but only want one group at a time. Keep in mind that winter brings snow, and we have a small bridge to cross and a slanted driveway. We are open year-round but make sure your tires can handle our terrain. Reserve a spot and then add any additional tents/rv/vehicles used for sleeping, that will be with you as an additional guest. You can also add extra sleeping structures under the extra tab. Huge windy driveway can accommodate rv campers. A creek runs through the front of the property year-round. Cleared spots available in the non-snow months are small so tent camping only. It is densely wooded. We do have goats in this field. but they are generally shy. Camping areas that people have liked are up top by the top field gate, or down in the field that our large chicken coop is in. There are no large animals in those areas, but chickens do make noises. Up top we have roosters that make noise about 5 am. the lower field on the right is the quietest. The bridge at the entrance to our property is 11' wide, which should allow a standard 8' RV to pass into the property. If you own an extra-wide RV's you should check its width before booking. Extra-wide RV's can park outside the property if you just need a place to park. Look us up on Facebook under Micone Ranch. See daily events and animals! :)

Riverfront Homestead

4 sites · RVs, Tents15 acres · Garden Valley, ID
This 15-acre homestead is experiencing a revival after more than 50 years of abandonment. We've diligently crafted a pond and established a sizable garden and orchard! Enjoy stunning river vistas and direct access to the river. Situated at the conclusion of The Canyon Section of the South Fork of the Payette River and the commencement of Swirly Canyon, this location is a rafter's paradise. Not an avid rafter? Fear not! There's a plethora of alternative activities to indulge in, such as hiking, strolling the property, observing wildlife, or riding ATVs. Whatever your preference, this locale is tailor-made for outdoor recreation. Interested in bringing horses? Feel free to reach out; we're more than happy to accommodate. Despite being just 25 minutes from town, your stay promises seclusion with scarcely a neighbor in sight. If you're considering RV camping, please note that the road demands a skilled driver. Rest assured, maneuvering a 30-foot travel trailer in and out of the property has been consistently smooth for adept drivers.

Garden Valley River Access Campsite

1 site · RV, Tent2 acres · Crouch, ID
The address to the house next door is 519 MiddleFork Rd, Garden Valley, ID 83622. That will get you to the property. The property is right after 519 it is a large open lot that leads down to the river. There is a black military vehicle parked on the very end close to the house. So there are two sections 1st is a flat section where you have plenty of room to set up tents and RVs. It is right off the road, and any car can get to the site with ease. The 2nd section is more wooded and has access to the river. You are welcome to tent camp here it is just getting an RV down there and out can be a challenge I don't recommend it. Also, the bridge across the river is the neighbors and so is the property across the river. There are roughly 4 campsites on the property but can camp where you want really. Large flat spot above the river that has access to the water. Half of the property is a flat spot for RV's and tents the 2nd half is more green, woody and has access to the river. There is a deeper spot in the river that is 3-4 feet deep and is perfect to lounge in during the hot parts of the summer. Please pack out what you pack in and keep the place nice for the next camper. Thank you and enjoy.

SawtoothMonkey

2 sites · RVs, Tents3 acres · Lowman, ID
The Sawtooth Monkey is a fictional character who lives in the Sawtooth mountains in Idaho, this creature is a crossbreed of a salmon and baby Bigfoot. Breeding and divine intervention took place circa 1989 when the 1989 fire hit the SF region of the Payette river. Baby Bigfoot had no where to go but the river, he was saved by a school of salmon who by Deus ex machina and the Idaho river God, Beeraspirits transformed Bigfoot and the Alpha 15 pound papa salmon into the Sawtooth Monkey. When SM hit puberty he developed a skin condition and an appetite for coconuts. He is currently friendly but a nuisance, because of his skin problems he is known for stealing ointment, lotions and sunscreen. Also, because of his love for coconuts, he is known for steal those too. Should you confront or come in contact with this elusive creature, please don't feed him anything but coconuts.
