A clean, convenient stop-over location for Boise with a huge dog-run.
- Site quality = 3.5/5
Basic but decent site quality for a private park. There are long, flat gravel pull-throughs and back-ins (most back-ins occupied by semi-permanents). Like most private parks sites are fairly tight, but each site is separated by a “slice” of concrete and green grass (a nice bonus) plus a picnic table. A few, sparse shade trees around. Full selection of hookups with cable TV.
- Facilities = 3/5
There’s a full set of facilities here, but they’re all a bit dated. Older showers and restrooms, but kept spotlessly clean and with a few little, cute touches (free bath-mats).
- Amenities = 4/5
A decent set of amenities here. On-site laundry, free Tengo WiFi (works decently), and selection of movie rentals and book-swap at the main store. Small, grassy play-area for the kids. Also propane available. Biggest bonus is the HUGE dog-run.
- Location = 4/5
This is a good location to explore Boise. The park is in the West of town in a quieter residential neighbourhood, but close enough to be short drive from downtown. Also Walmart, Home Depot and other shopping just a few miles away. Only ding is not alot of green around here.
- Pet friendliness = 5/5
Dog facilities are the biggest bonus here. The park has a huge dog run along the back (next to the river) which you can extend into a longer walk along the river-bank. Very spacious. You are also only ~15 mins drive from the big off-leash dog park downtown.
Overall rating = 3.9
BONUS ALERT: Huge dog run on-site!
Summary: We were looking for a convenient pet-friendly stop over in Boise and this place fit the bill. It’s a fairly standard private park with “parking-lot” type sites, but is kept meticulously clean and has some nice extra touches. Sites are mostly pull-through with full selection of hookups and slice of green. Good set of amenities and facilities (no pool however). Owners are super-friendly and location is fairly quiet, yet still convenient to everything in downtown Boise. The biggest bonus (for us) was the enormous dog-run all along the back of the park giving us a nice area to walk and hang out w/ pooch by the river. Given the choice of parks around Boise this is one of the nicer options and we’d probably chose to come again if we needed to stop in town.
Extra Info: Verizon aircard and smartphone had full signal. Free WiFi on-site (Tengo). Sites $ 34/night (regular full-hookup). They do offer a nicely discounted weekly & monthly rate, plus a Good Sam’s and AAA discount.
