Campground Review: Rock Creek Park, Twin Falls, ID

We spent two nights at a county park: Rock Creek Park. It is a lovely slice of green along a fast moving creek in an area that is high desert and farmland.

You have to watch carefully for the entrance to the RV section which is between a gravel holding site and a modular home dealer. The park sits below the busy entrance road in a canyon. This makes it a little quieter at night than if you were right next to the road.

There are approximately 25 spaces, 7 are pull throughs, the rest back ins. Roads are paved, sites are gravel and mostly level. At just $15 a night it was a bargain with water and electric hookups only. There is a free city dump station about one mile away.

Water pressure was strange on the second evening, as though there was air in the system, though still usable. We had read about the water pressure issue on RV Park Reviews, so it seems to be an ongoing problem. We unhooked the water that night due to a freeze warning.

When we arrived midweek the place was virtually deserted with only four other campers. The next afternoon  the park was the site of a a junior high level cross country race, but quieted down again that evening, with even fewer campers.

Our Verizon and Millenicom services worked well here on 4G/LTE.
