Emigration Campground


Emigration Campground is located in 17 miles west of Montpelier, Idaho, just off State Highway 36 in Emigration Canyon. Visitors enjoy exploring the nearby Highline Trail and fishing on local streams.


Facilities

The campground offers 20 single-family sites, three double-family sites and two group sites. Flush toilets and drinking water are provided. Roads to and within the campground are paved, and several sites can accommodate 40-foot trailers with pull vehicle. Group Site 3 (RCD) was recently added to the facility and is 1.5 miles west of the main campground on Highway 36. The site has vault toilets and drinking water. A picnic shelter with multiple tables and campfire rings, and small amphitheater are available. Roads and parking areas are gravel.

Natural feaures

The campground is situated in a quiet canyon forested with pine, spruce and aspen trees. Summer wildflowers dot the landscape and grasses cover the area. Wild huckleberries are abundant in mid-August.

Recreation

The Highline National Recreation Trail is adjacent to the campground and is considered the premier trail of the Montpelier District. It is open to hikers, bikers, horseback riders, motorcyclists and off-road vehicle riders. The trail stretches 55 miles along the backbone of the Bear River Range and intersects many other trails on the west side of the district.

The smallest and nimblest of fully enclosed RVs. Drives like a van. Loves posing for Instagram.

Class B

A formal-sounding name for camper van, but just as photogenic.

Class A

Drivers should be comfortable driving bus-sized vehicles and dealing with parking limitations. Great for delivery.

Truck Camper

If you can drive a truck, you can drive a truck camper. Makes roughing it significantly less rough.

Questions about RVs?

Q.

What type of RV should I choose?

A.

Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Q.

Do the RVs have bathrooms?

A.

Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


Q.

How does check-in work?

A.

Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
