City of Rocks National Reserve, ID

Location: Southern Idaho.  For more specific direction visit the link at the end of the page.

Cost:  Day use is free!  A camping fee for one vehicle and one site is $12.72.  There is a $8.48 charge for an additional car with a max of 2 cars and 8 people per site.

What to expect:  A lot of rock, a lot of climbers and mountain bikers, a lot of dogs, and a lot of fun... at least on a busy weekend like Labor Day.  I cannot claim any credit for reserving sites, our friends did that.  But just know to make reservations ahead of time and if available get a site with not a lot of hiking.

But this is an awesome place to go with kids and climb!  Huge rocks rise abruptly from somewhat flat, grassy land.   Most approaches are easy with lots of flat space for the kids to run and play.  And there is a great mix of trad and sport climbing.
