The RV park was very peaceful with the aspen trees and fairways. To the east you can also see the Grand Tetons which are only about 30 miles away as the crow flies, but close to 100 miles if you drive there.

The first time we went there to eat, we were told to try THE DARTH TATOR pizza which is considered the "Father" of all pizzas and is true to the Idaho potato theme. It is a white sauce pizza with Idaho baked potatoes, Canadian bacon, bacon, cheddar cheese, and red onions. It is very delicious and if you are ever there, you need to try one.
Both the RV park and restaurant are kid friendly and you could not ask for two better individuals to own them. We felt very welcome at both places.
They also had a bunch of wood cut up ready by each campsite for campfires and S'mores making which we took full advantage of.

We had planned on driving through Grand Teton north up to Yellowstone, but the road was still closed for the season, so had to turn around and come back to the RV park the way we came in.

On the drive are two falls, the Upper and Lower Mesa Falls which were created from the river cutting through the canyon that was created during the last time Yellowstone's volcano erupted which was 2500 times more powerful than Mt St Helens in 1980.
You can still see in the canyon's walls the volcanic drama that created it all.

So before we go you have to see at least one field were the potatoes are grown when in Idaho. Some places that is all you see for miles and miles.
