Dates Of Stay: October 2–3, 2015
Hi Valley is close-in to downtown Boise – approximately seven miles, or 20 minutes by surface streets. There is a Winco grocery store within two minutes’ drive. Their address is listed as Boise, but technically they are in the township of Eagle.
The park is well-kept and well-maintained, and the staff members are very nice. This was the first time I was escorted via golf cart to my site. Pads are gravel, with concrete walkways. The fenced-in dog area is wet and muddy in spots, but well-used. The pool is closed after Labor Day, but the Jacuzzi remains open.
There are many long-term resident at Hi Valley, and to be frank some of the campsites could be cleaned up. Many use rigid insulation boards along the bottom of their rigs, and several sites could use a few less lawn ornaments.
Unlike the ubiquitous horseshoe pit at other parks, Hi Valley has a bocce ball area. There are laundry facilities, which are closed one hour each morning for maintenance, and a good size rec hall.
Dumpsters are centrally located behind a barrier, as opposed to strewn about the park, which makes it more visually appealing but longer to walk if you want to empty your garbage.
Hi Valley is one of the quieter parks I have been to, but boy howdy is it dark! There are a few streetlamps in the park.
Check out is at 11 AM, but they were kind enough to allow me an additional hour and a half.
The park was a decent value at $36 per night. Given the other options in Boise, I would definitely stay at Hi Valley again if I return to Boise.
