On6Acres

3 sites · RVs, Tents6 acres · Buhl, ID
This is a private piece of property located just a few minutes from the 1000 Springs area known for its crystal clear waters and natural hot springs. Come play in the area and camp on your own private acreage at night. We have 3 designated tent/truck or car campsites at the moment. NO RV's. We cannot get the "3 RV/tent" description removed from the posting. The entrance and lane is too narrow to accommodate RV's or trailers. Tent/car/sprinter van camping only. Learn more about this land: Hagerman / Buhl / 1000 Springs Area. Tired of large commercial campgrounds? We understand. Camp with privacy and space. On6acres is a lost piece of private ground in the Snake River Canyon only 10 minutes from boat launches and hot spring baths in the Thousand Springs area. A 6.5 acre sloping desert with canyon views, ponds, native plants and trees. Including turkeys, deer, eagles, hawks, fish, rabbits, lizards, otters, and many other wild animals. **This is a natural, untouched, raw property. ******Please set your expectations correctly. Right now the experience is much closer to actual camping experience rather than a commercial campground but with the benefit of only being 10 minutes from the river in one direction and 10 minutes from town in the other direction. Come stargaze with very little light pollution and enjoy the quiet nature around. There are no amenities other than 3 designated/private spaces to pitch a tent or pick-up/van campers and a professionally maintained outhouse. Respect the property, and the wildlife and ecosystem it supports. We are happy to share the space while we continue to grow and develop this awesome piece of ground. ********For everyone's safety and to respect our neighbors quiet hours and privacy that surround the property there will be no check in's after 10PM**********

Learn more about this land:Welcome to our pasture oasis!  Our property is 4 miles down the road from BLM, where you are able to do any outdoor activities you desire.

I am on the property, as well, for any questions/issues/concerns. There is a runoff river that runs through the property but rarely has water. We like to use it for campfires instead!
