The campground is situated alongside the Snake River among cottonwood trees, which provide partial shade. Grassy meadows and summer wildflowers dot the landscape. Wildlife is plentiful in the river bottom. Eagles, osprey, moose and deer are frequently spotted.

Fall Creek Falls is less than 1/4 mile from the campground. This scenic cascade drops 60 feet over a travertine outcropping on the river's edge. It is visible from some parts of the campground.
