Hawleys Landing Campground is part of Heyburn State Park. It is situated on gently rolling hills next to Chatcolet Lake. The campground is shaded by white pine trees. (They drop a fine pitch mist which you will need to wash off of everything exposed). We enjoyed our stay here, especially hiking the trails along the lake and up on Indian Cliffs.

Fee Schedule: Single standard sites are $16 plus a $5 entrance fee and sales tax which totals $21.96. Sites with power and water total $28.32, while sites with power, water and sewer are $30.44. I recommend getting the Idaho State Parks Passport for an annual fee of $10 if you are going to enter a state park more than once this year. It will save you $5 each night of camping and $5 everytime you want to enter a state park in Idaho. You can get them when you register your auto or renew your auto license. If you are not an Idaho resident, the passport will cost you $40.
Campground Reservations: You may reserve your campsite at reserveamerica.com. The campground is very busy so make sure you reserve a site.
Phone service: We had reception on our ATT phones right in the campground. In fact, we went on line and extended our stay on our phones through the state website. Data service was a bit spotty but it got the job done.
