Lava Beds National Monument

I have been reading about this place and am ready to go. The literature says that motor homes up to 30' are allowed. Has anybody been in there with longer, say 35'?

Are there any other attractons in the general area?

Any advice is welcome.

Hi Bruceh, we were at Lava Beds a couple of years ago in October. We were practically the only ones there. There seemed to be plenty of sites that were big enough to accomodate a rig your size. Just be sure that you have plenty of water and empty tanks when you get there. It is a fascinating place to visit. Nearby is Tule lake which is a birders paradise. A beautiful and unique area. Enjoy!

A 35' RV shouldn't be a problem depending upon the site - many are parallel type parking.

Hi Bruce,
My Wife and I live a couple of hours from Craters of the Moon and tried to stay there a couple of weeks ago and everything was full, they had a star gazing function going on. I understand they have them often so call the Visitors Center @ 208-527-3257 to check on function schedules. We have found that smaller rigs use the large sites because it give them more room so there are sites open many times but our 34' Class A won't fit. There are several RV parks in Arco of which Mountain View RV Park is actually very nice and it is only about 17 miles from the Visitors Center.
If you need a dump or potable water I believe the city of Arco has that available just south of town at their sewage treatment plant. If not Daves Travel Center has a free public dump with potable water on site, the potable water is from the city water system.

Ron

Interesting information, but the OP was asking about Lava Beds National Monument in California, not Craters of the Moon in Idaho.

To the OP: Loop B will be your best bet for your size rig...Loop A is mostly smaller tent sites.
