Three Island Crossing State Park, Idaho

Heads up....this park recently found West Nile Virus in mosquitoes tested at their irrigation ponds for watering the lawns. The park supposedly treated the area the end of August but we were very hesitant in staying there a couple days ago.

West Nile is pretty common in large parts of the west. I would not be particularly concerned at Glens Ferry. Just use a little repellant.

Idaho has a few cases each year with millions of opportunities for exposure. I live in a farming area in Southern Idaho with West Nile present, and a few horses die each year from it in my area but infection in humans is pretty rare even with year long exposure to mosquito bites.

I realize West Nile is all over the country. However, this is the first time I've seen a campground with signs; a warning notice on the web site and also on the reservation site. This is dry arid country but this park has lush lawns. It's their lawn water that had the larvae which tested positive. They seem to think this park is especially problemmatic and they have sprayed for it. However, there were plenty of other RV parks in the area and we were only planning a one-night stopover so we moved on - a no-brainer for us! No big deal...
