Hanging out in the dog-run at Hi Valley RV Park

A clean, convenient stop-over location for Boise with a huge dog-run.

  1. 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.
  2. 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).
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.

    Hey remember me, we are the Land Yacht Ahoy bloggers.

    I just wanted to say I am really really impressed with your blogging efforts. We started our blog in May and just do occasional updates and stuff. No where near the intensity of yours.

    But reading all other blogs got me interested in Internet Marketing and Affiliate marketing and the like. So over the past 2 weeks I really have been reading all I can find on the subject.

    I just got your latest post update on the RV Park Review which you post quite a few of them. The reason I am so impressed is what I have learned is Page Ranking on Google is BIG. So I just checked it out by doing a Google search for RV Park Review. And guess who is # 2 on the Very Front Page of Google. YEP. Wheeling It. That is Awesome.
    Anyway, Great Blog and Great Accomplishment.

    Mark

    I concur with previous comment by Mark C — your blog is awesome and delivers the best, most thorough reviews of campgrounds. Great job. One thing though does puzzle me. Do you always have perfect weather. Your photos always seem to have picture perfect skies. Seems like when I’m on the road, I am always dodging rain or winds. Oh well. Here’s hoping you have smooth sailing on your future excursions.

      Hi Bob,
      I have to admit we’ve been exceptionally lucky this year as far as the weather goes.
      I can only remember maybe 10 or so rain days. Hope the luck holds out :)

  4. […] ~5 miles from downtown and the Boise foothills. When we came to Boise a few years back we stayed at Hi Valley which was a very neat park, but further from town. Boise Riverside is more basic and not as modern, […]
