The name of this park, South Tourist Park, should tell you all you need to know, however, it’s not what you would expect.
This little park featuring 16 dry camping sites, a dump station and potable water is located right on the water in Idaho Falls. Don’t believe the apps telling you this place is a boondocking place. When you pull in you are greeted right away with a big sign to register and pay your $20 dues. I don’t know about you but boondocking does not require money to stay in the spot, paved sites and a limited number available.
Because we had planned to do a few things around the Idaho Falls area we did not mind paying the $20 to be close to the things we wanted to do, however, after spending a couple days there we quickly realized that it was not worth the $20. Yes, it was a right on the water and centrally located but it cost $20 to stay there, there were no hookups, and to be honest, it was inching towards the border of becoming grimey.
On a side note, there was a cute little goose family that inhabited the area. When they weren’t being harrassed by unattended children and dogs, they were super cute and fun to watch waddle around the place.
