We are overjoyed with our stay at AlstonAcres! From welcoming us at the entrance to their property, meeting their friends (now our friends too ;-)), sharing dinner each night and great conversations...we can’t say enough positive things! They have hook-ups available, we have solar so we didn’t need them but it’s nice to have them available. We will definitely stay with them again when we’re in this part of Idaho! A big thank you to them for their hospitality!

Our stay at Alston Acres was very good. Our host left work to meet us as we arrived so there would be no confusion with where to set up for our stay. We spent the next two days exploring the area sights. Playing cards with our host was fun, entertaining and a welcome change from just being given a spot and then ignored. Thanks again Alston Acres for all your hospitality.

Their recommendation to see the Museum of Clean in Pocatello was excellent!

We wish all our camping experiences were like this. Friendly, helpful hosts and a quiet, level place to park. The 50amp was a huge bonus! Thankyou so much.
