Absolutely beautiful and peaceful. We found a pull through for our large rig right on the lake front for $14 a night, around 2:00 PM on a Tuesday. Breathtaking views of mountains, water, birds, and a lovely breeze on a warm day. Such a wonderful surprise to find a quiet place to spend the night. We camped at Joe T. Fallini Recreation Site in a Travel Trailer.

Beautiful campground on the shore of Mackay reservoir. Great place for fishing; many campers with boats (and UTVs). Vault toilets, some were nice and clean, some were not. WE were there a week before the water was turned on (so fee was 1/2 price 1$7) but 30 amp elect. was on. Great views of the Lost River mountains, waterbird sounds, close to the highway but not noisy. We camped at Joe T. Fallini Recreation Site in a Travel Trailer.

Great BLM CG the only thing is you better get there the first part of the week to get a spot. We arrived on Tuesday and only one site was open. We camped at Joe T. Fallini Recreation Site in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed in a pull through site that had a gorgeous view of the mountains and was quite spacious. Nice cover over picnic table and good fire pit. Sites have water and electric but no full hookups. Very convenient to the reservoir. We hung bird feeders and had lots of hummingbirds. Sites were paved and level with gravel around fire pit and table. We camped at Joe T. Fallini Recreation Site in a Fifth Wheel.

Scenic drives. Visit Craters of the Moon. Visit old mining areas and mining museum in Mackay. Fishing and boating and kayaking in the reservoir. Great OHV trails.

BLM campground outside of Mackay ID. Lights and water and great views of reservoir. Be sure to take the self guided Mine Tour. Laundromat in next town south. Wifi at Library. We would stay here again. Used senior pass. We camped at Joe T. Fallini Recreation Site in a Travel Trailer.

I didn't know BLM could have such a nice CG. Large, level, paved sites with electric and water at each site. No trees to give shade but some sites have sheltered tables. The views of the lake are spectacular. There is a boat ramp that gets a lot of use but the lake has very few boats on it. Verizon is on extended network but works well with our amp. The dump station has a $5 fee even for campers. We stayed for 5 days and enjoyed every one of them. The small town of Mackay has a very old rundown laundry, a small grocery, and a couple of bars and restaurants. We camped at Joe T. Fallini Recreation Site in a Motorhome.

This is a BLM campground located on the McKay Reservoir near McKay, Idaho. The place appears recently renovated or redesigned. Quiet, away from any major towns; the nearest was tiny McKay a few miles south. Plenty of stars at night. A beautiful reservoir for swimming, fishing, boating, etc. On Highway 93 in the plateau of southern Idaho. Craters of the Moon is less than an hour away. Beautiful peaks to the east. Pit toilets and no showers, but electricity and water are available, as well as a dump station. We camped at Joe T. Fallini Recreation Site in a Truck Camper.
