· Crouch, Boise, Idaho
2 acres hosted by Robert D.
1 RV/tent site
Primitive camping
Best for self-contained campers. There are no toilets, showers, or potable water at this Hipcamp.
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.

Family stay with kiddos
Very clean campsite. The really only flat ground and space for a trailer is at the top of the site. Big flat area but it was right next to the road. Then a hill to get done to a pretty area with trees by the river. We had a bunch of kiddos with us, and it was very difficult for them to get in and out of the water. There is not a ton of clearing from the bushes and there is a slope into the water. The grass area is nice but only a couple small areas for tents that are not slanted. we made it work, but I definitely would not stay there again worried about dogs and kids next to the road and not great access in and out of the river. If you have no kids, the area is beautiful if you plan on tent camping that’s better.

Stayed on the lower spot with tents and weren't able to find perfectly level spots so slid around a wee bit but other than that the spot was great. The upper spot is much more flat but didn't want to be that close to the road without an RV. Easy access to river, not too far from town, the host had thoughtfully stocked us some firewood kept dry inside a plastic bag which was unexpected and appreciated!

Beautiful riverside close to road
Beautiful spot by the river, birds all over, overlooking a lovely treed lawn across the way and the river. There's a fire pit, a shallow section to get into the river, and a little shade though not a ton. Our only negatives were that the path to the river is quite steep and hard to get back up, and also that the 1st area (where you have to park your camper if you bring one) is very near the road. I assumed this would be a quiet back road but it's fairly frequently traveled so road noise and headlights at night were annoying. For tent camping in the lower section, it would be fabulous I think.

Camping by the river
The campsite was great! It’s very private, easy to find, and very spacious. The river access was so great for the kiddos and adults alike. Would definitely recommend and will definitely be back !
