Coordinates For Wolf Flats
Wolf Flats is an official fee-free BLM campsite, but the road leading to and from the campsite is loaded with dispersed sites.
We chose a site before the campground, but did go out and explore the service roads to get a lay of the land.

Bureau of Land Management, but as you go further back along the road it becomes US Forest Service land.
We stayed two nights and did not notice any law enforcement.
There was a lot of traffic coming and going, including semi trucks.
The road is passable by any type of vehicle.
Tune your suspension though since the washboard along the way is pretty gnarly!
Yes, this location is big rig friendly.
There are spots of all sizes especially back along Forest Rd 217.
If you go far enough down Forest Rd 217, it changes labels and eventually dumps you back out on E Heise Rd.
You’ve done a full loop.
According to our Open Signal app AT&T and Verizon are well represented with dead spots here and there because of the mountains.
Our T-Mobile phones and hot spot worked great!
No, the spots are amongst the trees and small mountains on the north east side.
It was crowded, but you’d never know outside of the designated campground since the spaces are far apart.
Like I said earlier, there’s a lot of traffic coming and going on the main road.
There’s also a lot of spots along the national forest service roads.
We felt safe, but there was some “shady” traffic going by on occasion.
Regardless, we were left alone.
The fly’s and mosquitoes were really bad!.
We stayed here to heal from a family bout of dysentery (likely from bad water), so spending time indoors due to the mosquitoes was fine.
We did not encounter any wildlife in this spot.
We used the beautifully maintained dump station next to Idaho Department of Lands office off Rt 26 on the way to Idaho Falls.
The coordinates are:
It was easy to pull into and dump, but it was busy, so be prepared to wait.
Strike up a conversation with another RVer and the time will pass quickly.
For some reason, this location didn’t jive with us. It was too busy and the bugs were overwhelming.
We’re glad we only stayed for a short duration.
That said, the spots further back on the US Forest service roads were more appealing.
We chose the first site that was suitable since our previous boondocking location was less than “big rig friendly.”
We were still sick and under the circumstances, didn’t have the energy to explore further with our rig in tow.
If you decide to camp here, do yourself a favor and explore before selecting a “sub par” spot.
