City of Rocks National Reserve, ID

47 RV rentals

The City of Rocks National Reserve, which was officially established in 1988, is not only an Idaho geological wonder but also an important part of the country’s history. The City of Rocks was a popular stopping spot for pioneers and settlers traveling along the California Trail between 1843 and 1882. Because so many caravans sheltered among these rocks, a temporary tent city was established here, allowing people to replenish their supplies and trade for goods.

The steady flow of caravans carved out deep grooves into the bedrock that are still visible today. Many travelers also signed their names in axle grease on rocks along the trail, essentially indicating that “I was here.” These historically-significant examples of graffiti are still visible …

Coeur d'Alene National Forest, ID

211 RV rentals

After World War II ended, and vehicles became more common, the park slowly saw an increase in recreational activity.

In the early 70s, the National Forest Service conceded it was overwhelmed and petitioned to consolidate a few national forest parks into one park in an effort to streamline administrative paperwork and budget oversight. The request was approved, and Coeur d'Alene National Forest, Kaniksu National Forest, and Saint Joe National Forest were …
