Where are we going today?
They call it Mountain Home for a reason! Fort Running Bear RV Park and Campground is located on 40 acres of beautiful landscapes, with incredible mountain views!
They offer hookups for any sized RV, so whether you have a large big rig or a little 2 person set up, they can accommodate you!
If you prefer to not bring an RV, they do have four fully equipped cabins available that sleep four, with linens provided (except for the sofa bed). These cabins come with everything you will need to make your stay just like home! Dining table, coffee maker, stove, microwave, toaster, fridge...it's all there! They even have a covered patio with a picnic table for you to enjoy those tasty home cooked meals!
They also have 5th Wheel rentals which sleep 4 with the same features as the cabins. Kids - maybe you can treat mom and dad to a nicely cooked meal on the patio! Yay!
Kids - there's a pool! Splash about and cool down in their sparkling swimming pool, or enjoy some of their fun outdoor activities. There is a TV lounge with billiards, or try you hand at some mini golf. Get active and take a hike on the nearby hiking trails, or enjoy some fishing (and if you ask nicely, maybe mom or dad will clean the fish you catch for you!)
They also host scheduled activities such as weekend breakfasts, holiday events as well as group events.
Don't worry - you won't encounter any actual running bears!
What is there to do?
They are within walking distance from the Little Camas Reservoir (one of the best known fishing spots in all of Idaho), and the area has snow-capped mountains year round!

We decided to stay here overnight on our way from Oregon to Yellowstone this summer and had a great stay. We were tent camping, and they had a small three to four site tent camping area available, which was well separated from the RV sites offering plenty of privacy. You cannot beat the price for everything that is offered here. 9 hole mini golf course, laundry, a pool and free showers. The owner was very friendly and accommodating. I would definitely recommend this place!

If you really want to take your big rig out of town, this is the place. It’s on a small hill overlooking a beautiful a valley surrounded by mountains with the only sounds coming from the wildlife around the park but to get there you must be willing to drive 2.5 miles down a very dusty dirt road. The road is hard packed and fairly smooth so the drive will be easy but you should unhook your toad or it will be totally covered in a thick layer of fine dirt. Once there you can either blow off the dirt or use a California duster that they will loan...Read More

If you really want to take your big rig out of town, this is the place. It’s on a small hill overlooking a beautiful a valley surrounded by mountains with the only sounds coming from the wildlife around the park but to get there you must be willing to drive 2.5 miles down a very dusty dirt road. The road is hard packed and fairly smooth so the drive will be easy but you should unhook your toad or it will be totally covered in a thick layer of fine dirt. Once there you can either blow off the dirt or use a California duster that they will loan you. We took our 40ft class A there and settled into a nice site with plenty of room for slides and awning. All campsites are back-ins with a picnic table on a concrete slab. You park on level gravel sites with lots of grass around and some large trees. The campsites are a mix of 30 and 50amp, vary in length and tree cover so plan accordingly. There is no Sprint service in the area and they offer no cable or WIFI. The owners and camp workers are very friendly and helpful. Bathrooms, showers, laundry and pool were all clean and well maintained. They also offer a weekend breakfast and potluck dinner. Your closest resupply town is Mountain Home about 25 miles away.
