Across North America, we have arguably some of the best variety national parks anywhere in the world, from wetlands to prairies to awe-inspiring mountain ranges. As travelers Juanita and Gordon can attest, one place to enjoy some of our national parks is the Red Rock RV and Camping Park. In their Trip Journal “Seeing the USA in Our Chevrolet,” one can easily see the many attractions to be found here.

Nestled about 5 miles from Highway 20 in Idaho, Red Rock RV and Camping Park borders Island Park. The park is surrounded by pine and aspen trees on one side and high-peaked mountains on the other. The open plain within offers the feeling of awe at the vast natural beauty, and the park owners themselves offer an atmosphere of welcoming assistance to both new and veteran visitors.

Red Rock RV and Camping Park

The park rests at an elevation of about 6600 feet, providing pristine snow in the winter and bounties of wildflowers and lush greens when the snows melt away. Close to Red Rock RV and Camping Park is Yellowstone National Park, where you may be rewarded with the view of buffalo herds, as Juanita and Gordon were on their first visit to the park’s Lamar Valley. In addition to the buffalo, you can also enjoy sites of bald eagles, cranes, and bears.

For a bit of town life, Ennis, Montana, is located about an hour away and one stop I and our travelers would recommend is the hundred-year-old, family-operated meat store Restvedt’s, where you can enjoy delicious meat links.
