Grandview Campground can be found at the "overlook" for Lower Mesa Falls. We saw no sign with the campground name on it and found it more by chance than from signs. The campground is situated on the east side of a deep canyon and overlooks Lower Mesa Falls (85ft). The campground is fairly level and is covered by a mature forest with heavy undergrowth.

Campsites: There are 8 campsites, each have a picnic table, fire pit with attach grate and a camp stove table. The road, driveways and sites are gravel.

Host on Site: "Richard" was the host for 2012 and he was very proud of Grandview Campground. He seemed to be a great host.

Water: There is water available from a pressurized system and it was cool and clear.

Garbage Services: There is a bear resistant dumpster. Please use it as these woods are home to both black and grizzly bear.

Electricity Available: Yes, each site has power.

Restroom: Grandview has one vault style outhouse which like most in this area was clean and well stocked.

Handicap Accessible: The outhouse is handicap accessible.

Firewood: Firewood may be purchased from the host for $6 per bundle.

Pets: Pets are allowed but must be kept on a leash.

Picnic Area: There is a small picnic area at the overlook parking area.

Recreation: While camping here, I would spent some time hiking down to and along the river. I would imagine the fishing in the hard to reach spots would be outstanding. A good close up photo of Lower Mesa Falls would be great too.

Fishing: Fishing in Henry's Fork and other nearby streams can be quite good for trout and whitefish. Check the regulations for restrictions and limits.

Boating: No

Swimming: No

Wildlife: Deer, elk, black and grizzly bear could be seen here. One might find wolves, fox and many smaller animals and birds.

Additional Camping Opportunities: We have reviews for the nearby campgrounds; Riverside Campground, Buffalo Campground, Buttermilk Campground and Warm River Campground.

Fee Schedule: For 2012 a double site was $36, and a single site $18. Other campgrounds in this area have increased their price so don't be surprised if they are a couple dollars more.

Campground Reservations: 6 RV sites are reservable through recreation.gov.

Phone service: There is no pay phone here but there is one at the Upper Mesa Falls Scenic Area. We didn't have service with our ATT cell phones.

Nearby Services: There are no nearby sources for supplies. Ashton to the south or Island Park City to the north are the closest. We had to replace a battery and Ashton had what we needed.

RV Dumping Site: I have not found an RV dumping station in this area.

Location/Driving instructions: From Boise, Idaho, follow this Google Map.

Renee G:

Beautiful small campground, but surprisingly has site long enough for some big rigs. We have a 35' fifth wheel and when combined with the tow vehicle, we are 50 feet and we fit in several sites. The only reason I gave a three star rating is that the loop at the end of the campground that you pretty much have to go through, is overrun with shrubs and if you don't take the loop at the right angle, you can have problems. It's very quiet and peaceful here with the constant sound of Lower Mesa Falls. Lovely. The host in 2014 kept the campground clean and neat and was very helpful to all the campers
