Campground Description

Campground Description

Pro Contributor

Riverside Campground is a terrific place to stay a few nights along the Henrys Fork of the Snake River. This place has it all: premium fishing, a small-craft boat ramp, large lodgepole pines for shade, and a bunch of sites to choose from. Just south of the town of Island Park, this area is a great jump-off point for Harriman State Park and Upper Mesa Falls. People come from all over to fish the Snake River, and this campground gives you some serious access. There are 57 total sites, and most are easily large enough for an RV; however, there are no electrical or sewer hookups. The area is well shaded, and the camp host reports they have not seen a bear in camp for four years, which is always a good thing in this neck of the woods. A specific area for fisherman allows anglers to avoid coming into other peoples sites while casting. The camp is open from late May to late September.
