Top 5 Camping Areas In Idaho

If you are itching to get out of the house and go on a camping trip, we have some terrific destinations to tell you about. At Dowdy’s Automotive, we know how lucky we are to live in such a beautiful area, and that’s why we’re happy to share our top five camping area destinations in Idaho.

Macks Creek Park

Located close to Boise, this family-friendly campground is a gem for fishing enthusiasts. Near Lucky Peak Lake, this camping area has a boat ramp, plenty of shade trees, and hiking trails. Treasure Valley locals call this one of the best camping areas in the region.

Coeur d’Alene Lake

If you love blending the beauty of a gorgeous lake with the bustle of a popular tourist destination, you’ll love camping at Coeur d’Alene Lake. You and the family can watch the wildlife as you hike, canoe, swim, or fish near the water’s edge.

Bruneau Dunes State Park

If you love the idea of taking the family to the sand dunes and sliding down them on a rented slide board, you are going to love Bruneau Dunes State Park. You can rent a cabin, park your RV, or pitch a tent to enjoy the fun this park has to offer. Don’t forget to pack your fishing gear or reserve a horseback ride for extra fun!

Three Island Crossing State Park

If history is your thing, you’ll love visiting Three Island Crossing State Park. This site memorializes the Oregon Trail and all the pioneers who passed through here in their covered wagons. There are history programs that tell the tales of those who lived and traveled along the Snake River.

Craters of the Moon National Monument

An abundance of lava flows mark this weird and unworldly landscape. Explore this scenic landscape with the family and you’ll appreciate the power of Mother Nature and her geology. But before you go, make sure the park is open and without risk of seismic activity.

Of course, when planning your camping trip, we encourage you to get your vehicle ready too. Whether you drive to these destinations in a small car or haul a trailer behind a towing vehicle, you can find peace of mind when you get a vehicle inspection from our auto repair team before your trip. If your vehicle is due for an oil change, or if your tires seem to be underinflated, come to Dowdy’s Automotive. We have multiple locations in the Treasure Valley region and we are always happy to offer a safety inspection before your camping trip. 

Here’s what one of our happy clients said about our Dowdy’s Automotive team in Boise:

“Very honest, fair and excellent communication through the whole diagnostic process. Will be a repeat customer for sure!” — Ryan C.

Our goal is to be your convenient neighborhood shop, where you know you’ll be treated with kindness and respect. That is why we have gone out of our way to offer a touchless auto repair experience so you can feel a little safer when getting your car serviced. Please be sure to schedule a service appointment if you desire our team to happily pick-up and deliver your vehicle.
