Treat yourself and your family to a camping adventure in the City of Rocks National Reserve. This puptacular backcountry facility features monoliths and granite spires. There are 63 standard campsites and two group sites spread among six areas here. Pit or flush toilets are available depending on where you camp in the park. Other amenities include tables and fire rings. Fees are $12 to $21 per night for single spots and $36 for group accommodations.
There are different camping zones in the park — some areas have shade while other spots are in the open. Once you set up your tent or camper, you and Fido can investigate the area on 22+ miles of trails here. Some are short, scenic hikes, like the Window Arch Trail and the Bath Rock Trail. To take a longer trek, check out the eight-mile Circle Creek Loop. Walk among the Inner City and out into the backcountry. You'll see some of the most paw-some rock formations as well as sagebrush plateaus, stands of cottonwood, pinyon pine, and grassy spots. The varied ecosystems burst with color from blooming wildflowers in the spring, making this area is a photographer's playground. Wildlife living out here include bighorn sheep, golden eagles, yellow-bellied marmots, and mule deer.
Idaho parks allow you to camp with your four-footed friends. They have to remain under your supervision and on a leash whenever they're outside of your campsite. Collect and throw out any waste in trash cans, and keep your pooch from digging.
