Find Campsites

ATTENTION: Please note beginning with 2015 stays, Idaho State Park fees will charge different rates for resident and non- resident customers. This change requires the collection of unique primary site occupant information (name, address, and telephone number) for all sites. This includes cabins, campsites, yurts and group facilities. Customers booking multiple sites under one name should expect a follow up call from IDPR staff requesting primary occupant information.

Three Island Crossing State Park, ID

Status: Open through Thu Dec 31 2015   Season Dates
Max reservation window: Sun Apr 03 2016   Later Dates


Three Island Crossing State Park is located on the Snake River and is home to The Oregon Trail History & Education Center where visitors can learn about pioneer emigrants and Native American history.

Located just four miles off I-84, the park is a convenient rest stop for highway travelers looking for a place to camp as well as for golf enthusiasts looking to play a round or two at Carmela Winery & Golf Course located less than 500 yards from the park. Visitors are often surprised to find soft grass and shady trees in this high desert area.
