Campground Review: Pipeline Campground, American Falls, ID
Why we chose here? We were making some ground between Lake Tahoe and Jackson Wyoming. We don't like to drive more than about 200 miles a day, so this was a convenient place, just a few miles from the freeway.
Location: This free BLM campground is just one mile from the 86 freeway between Twin Falls and Idaho Falls. It is on a beautiful wide stretch of the Snake River. There is a small boat ramp and few small fishing jetties. It is very scenic and the birds are beautiful.
Sites: The sites are of mixed quality. Some are nicely flat and level, other are deeply rutted and sloped. There is a picnic table, fire ring at each site.
Facilities: This is a pack in pack out campground with no water. There are no facilities other than a vault toilet.
Groceries: We didn't explore anywhere nearby, but I am pretty sure there are no grocery stores nearby.
Cell Coverage / WiFi: Good for both Verizon and AT&T
Price Paid: Free.
Date of visit: June 2015
Other: This is not a destination campground, but we found it to be a lovely spot to rest our head for an evening.
