Windbreak Farm Alpacas

2 sites · RVs, Tents2 acres · Rigby, ID
In 2016 we decided to bite the bullet, sell our city home, and move out into the country to fulfill our dream of owning a bit of property! We lucked into a charming country home on a calming 2.5 acres. We are surrounded by 80 foot cottonwoods, with deer bounding through the neighborhood, owls frequently hooting and pheasants calling for a mate. This home is a dream come true for us! In the course of this lifestyle change, we stumbled upon the idea that we could own alpacas, one of the softest animals in the world, and our numbers are growing with crias (baby alpacas) due each year! Join us for some peaceful tranquility at Windbreak Farm Alpacas, where if the wild winds of Idaho are blowing, you can still enjoy the outdoors! Pull your camper into the quiet serene grounds of Windbreak Farm Alpacas, our camp site is shaded from the afternoon heat by 80’ cottonwoods, and the alpacas, and especially dogs will Love to Welcome you to our little piece of paradise! While you’re here discover the surrounding area's vast options for outdoor play, all within a 5-60 minute drive. We have water available to fill tanks and power is available in “Extras” for $10 per night. We also have room for 1 more small camper up to 4 vehicles in the same party. If you would like to book the second camper, message me and I can open up a second site for the same party. Please check in before 8:30pm.

Teton Corners River Preserve

7 sites · RVs, Tents3 acres · Rexburg, ID
Teton Corners has been a favorite fishing and stayover spot for generations, and we felt we should step up and adopt it since we didn't want to see it developed, ripped apart or closed off. Know that by staying here, you are helping preserve this small piece of natural beauty in Idaho. It may not be the biggest preserve, but you have to start somewhere. Come stay a night! Learn more about this land: Come to our riverside getaway at Teton Corners. This 3 acre peninsula into the Teton River provides amazing trout fishing right from your tent door (licenses issued just 1 mile down the road). This gorgeous nature area is minutes from town, with easy access to HWY20 and HWY33. Deer, moose, bald eagles and osprey frequent the area year round, as well as beaver, waterfowl and night owls. RV dumps right down the road, as well as a 27 hole golf course, if that's your thing. Or just relax, dip your feet in the Teton River and listen to the water pass by. Note: River levels fluctuate over the season. We've tried to take pictures of all water seasons for reference.

The Lucky Dawg Park

5 sites · RVs, Tents2 acres · Rigby, ID
Hi HipCampers. My land is pretty simple. A county home on two acres that has a large canal running down the south side of the property. I am slowly but surely doing indoor and outdoor improvements as time and money allows. My home sits on one acre and the other acre which is mostly flat and grassy is nearest the water. The canal has tall trees all along it for shade. There is a rope swing in one of the trees near the road to jump/swing into the water and another rope on the bridge to grab and get out. There are all sorts of outdoor activities 30+ minutes away. Yellowstone National Park is 2.5 hrs away. Jackson Hole is 1.5 hr away. There is world class fishing just an hour away. I am new to this and would like tips suggestions and even some help making this more comfy for campers alike. I apologize for there being a lack of signage. I am working on getting tables and fire pits in place as we speak.

Camping near Mud Lake guide

Overview

With less than 500 residents and little more than a burger joint and a gas station to its name, the tiny town of Mud Lake in Jefferson County is unlikely to be top of your Idaho to-do list. But if you’re seeking a wildlife experience away from the crowds, then its namesake lake, just north of town, is sure to deliver. A short detour from Interstate 15 and within a 2-hour drive of both the Craters of the Moon National Monument and the Caribou-Targhee National Forest, the Mud Lake Wildlife Management Area encompasses a 4,500-acre lake, surrounded by shallow wetlands and marshes. Bring a paddle boat to cruise the lake or your waders to explore the marshlands, where you can spot more than 49 water bird species and 28 waterfowl species, along with deer, elk, and big game species. Campers can stay at the two primitive campgrounds, which offer restrooms and fire rings.
