Campground Review: Juniper Campground at Ririe Reservoir, Ririe, ID

We had a gorgeous 120 mile drive yesterday from our boondocking spot just North of Pinedale, WY to Ririe, ID. We started in rolling green hills and headed into the mountains, followed the Hoback River canyon, then the Snake River. Entering Idaho, the terrain slowly changed to rolling fields of wheat and potatoes.

We stopped for one night at the Juniper Campground at Ririe Reservoir. It was a lovely and inexpensive stop among the farm fields. Roads and sites are paved. Each site has a picnic table and fire pit and grassy area. Full hookups are only $18 per night.

Amenities include very nice restrooms with showers, a 9-hole disc golf course, all types of boating are allowed on the reservoir. We had excellent 4G Verizon signal, using our own internet service.

We only stayed one night and did not explore the surrounding area. This park was beautiful, quiet and inexpensive; a perfect place for a stopover.

  1. What a nice park! And with amenities like disc golf, too! Love that wheat field/dark sky photo.

  2. Lisa: We are chasing you guys around the west. We just left Juniper County Park CG in Ririe this morning and are now parked at Rock Creek Park in Twin Falls. We're here for a couple of days and then heading out to Eugene, OR for a week. Will be there over Labor Day. When are you going to arrive in Bend, OR?
