We had a cabin fall through at Island Park, ID last minute and did the family reunion here instead. T'was an excellent choice! No crowds, plenty of parking, more beds than we had family, and the perfect combination of clean, tidy, and updated without having to pay for unnecessary fanciness. A perfect middle-class vacation spot! The canyon it is in...

We booked the entire lodge (both buildings) for a church youth group over President's Day weekend. We had about 80 teenagers and 20 adults. It was perfect for this event. The lodges are not fancy, but they are very clean and well-kept. The staff was responsive to our request and needs, and quickly remedied any issues that occurred. The lodge...

Our family recently stayed at the Lodge for a Family Reunion. The place was a big hit! It is very affordable and large enough for a crowd, with 4 bathrooms and 5 large bedrooms filled with beds. We had about 40 people, but the Lodge could have handled many more. We were there during very hot (for Idaho) weather, and...

I have been here the last two years. I have a 5th wheel travel trailer and go here as a shake down trip before taking longer ones. I also like to bring some of the grandkids to get a camping experience. It is not fancy but has all the basic. I like the fact that you can eat at the...

Glenn, It was a pleasure having you and your wife and grand kids with us here again and I certainly look forward to having you back again. I loved the time we had to visit when you were here. Thanks for your patronage, Denise

After reserving a spot a week ago, we arrived this afternoon to a closed office, a packed park, our space had been over run by a family reunion, and it's a pitiful amount of space to shove so many tents and trailers into. We had to visit the restaurant down the hill to borrow a land line to call the...

Bridgett T., Cub River RV Park has been open now for nearly 12 years, and having had thousands of families who have come to Cub River to enjoy God's creations, our amenities here and family time, we have never before had anyone complain publicly. I am so sorry your experience here with us at Cub River RV Park was less...

Our large family came here for our family reunion and everyone loved it. There were plenty of beds, bathrooms and a large kitchen. We all had a great time playing games, swimming in the clean pool, hiking and just relaxing. Its hard to find a building that we can all stay in thats not a hotel. This place has 2...

This place was great for large groups. If you aren't lazy and don't mind cleaning up after yourself this is a great place to stay. It's not a high end resort, it's a family oriented environment that is good for all ages. The Manager (Sharla) was extremely helpful, easy going and just plain kind. I would rather stay here than...

We found Cub River to be VERY accommodating tour family reunion. We went a few days early with our family to make it a longer vacation, and they made it a very seamless transition into the larger family reunion. There is a lot of options and we had a lot of space for our family--and we have a large family....

We came for a family reunion 2014 in August. We have a big family so ages 1-75, altogether there was 37 of us. We stayed in the cabin next to the swimming pool. It was so fun. I was nice because they have a scheduled time that just our family could use the swimming pool. That way we could play...
