23 Parks near Athol, Idaho
Jul 2016 - $54.00
If you are lucky enough to get a spot near the water or on the outer edges, which is less than 10% of the spaces, then you may enjoy this place. Otherwise, $54 is WAY too much for the interior spaces ($35 would have been more reasonable), with thin gravel pad sites advertised to accommodate a 45' MH + tow vehicle, but our site was too short for both. When it rained, it was a muddy mess at our site and told no mats, etc. Very messy, again, overpriced for what you are getting on the interior sites. The dog park is sad and looks more like a dog prison (just lacking the razor wire). However, there are some areas on the water to let your dog enjoy which was nice. Laundry room was clean, 24-hr accessible, well lit and reasonably priced. Overall though, we were disappointed about our site (especially due to the price). We would've been willing to pay more for a better site, so "buyer be aware" make reservations early for a spacious lake site, then maybe you'll love the location, but if not, you may want to head on down the road to the casino and spend $50 on the slot machines instead! - TDM En Route

We stayed here 8 years ago, it's all new now. WiFi was weak, but site were big and easy. - Tredguy

Very clean, well maintained park along the Coeur d'Alene River. Extremely busy; full every night. Reservation is a must. We have stayed on a beautiful riverfront lot previously; however, even though I made a reservation 6 months in advance, none were available. Our pull-thru barely fit our motorhome and towed vehicles are parked everywhere. Every site has grass and there is lots of green space around the park. Roads are tight and can be confusing. The picnic table needed to be replaced. Even with its drawbacks, we enjoy the location and will return again (hopefully getting a better site). - Freedom Bus

Disappointing park. Sites were way too close. Neighbor's campfire was right next to our rig. Sparks were all over as fire rings were in ground and couldn't be moved. Quiet hours 10-PM to 7-AM were not enforced. Neighbors were loud until midnight every night. Complaints to management caused them to come over at midnight and tell them there was a 10-PM quiet time. Management wanted us to keep dogs from barking at their "pet Elk" which was sitting in the dog walk road. Rest rooms were disgusting. Men's urinals didn't work. Showers ran out of hot water. Reservations crew was unaccommodating in moving our friends closer even though sites were vacant. Sewer sites cost the same as non sewer and only full hookups offered cable. Boat rental prices were exorbitant. There is no view of the lake from this campground. Limited staff. - Avofarmer

Would not stay again even though staff was friendly. Bathrooms below average, full of sand from nearby beach. Sites too narrow (we could not open 2nd slideout). Fire pit was within 2 steps of our door, and ours is not a mega-RV. Our view was of long-term neighbor's junkyard clutter. - User3773

Yes, the sites are close, but the park is nice. All the amenities you want on vacation. Its at an higher altitude so even if the days are hot, it cools down in the evening fast. Lots of trees, access to the lake, peddle boats and canoes for rent, a speed boat and fishing boat too! The staff is very friendly and helpful about seeing things in the area. So much to do, not enough time! We will be coming back often. Thank you Lake Coeur d'Alene Camping Resort for a wonderful time. - Happilyretired62

The turn into the park is tight, but there's a sign telling you to turn wide. The pullthrough sites are tight. To use your chairs you'll have to put them in front of the rig. They don't allow fires by the RVs (they say it's an insurance thing), but they have a common fire nearby going at night. Parking is on dirt and grass. There's a big play area that is well mowed and a creek runs through the camp. It's not a fancy park, but it's well maintained and less than ten miles from Coeur d'Alene. If I couldn't get into Blackwell Island RV Park I would stay here again. - RVerMJ

No Cable no TV at all on Antenna. Sites are very tight and you park on dirt.
Watch out for the trees in the parking spots.
The turn into the park is very tight onto a narrow bridge becarful and swing wide.
The Electrical hook up post was in very bad shape the 50 amp plug was loose and broken it did work but looked bad. - 44 ft Beaver

Older campground with mature shade trees and a little creek. Off Frontage road; swing wide to turn into Park, then carefully cross narrow bridge over creek. Pull-throughs are long and wide enough for opposing slide-outs. Some road noise from I-90, which didn't bother us. Open grassy areas for kids and dogs. Very busy on July weekend, better reserve! Friendly, helpful Owners. We would stay here again. - FranM

This is a very nice RV park tucked behind a very busy store/gas station on Hwy 95 just north of Hayden. Check in at the service station was friendly and efficient. The park itself is very clean, well maintained, and pretty. Roads were very good, plenty wide with more than adequate turning space. Site was level, long and serviced by excellent utilities. Did not use laundry or bathrooms. While not a destination park it was an excellent place to spend a few days. Would certainly not hesitate to stay here again. - whodat

We didn't use the showers or restrooms and the sewer hookup for our motorhome was too far away. But the dump station worked out just fine for our 2-night stay. The park is in a lovely setting and the sites were level gravel and good trees for shade. My rating would be higher had the WiFi worked as advertised. It was non-existent throughout our stay, but my Verizon Jetpack worked well. - Lke

Lots of permanent folks with tacky RV's. Could be a great park if they mowed the lawns on a regularly and trimmed the site trees. Street lights out, and water leaks at the hook ups. Back in sites a little tight. People around us that come here year after year said the park is not as nice as it use to be. I hope they turn this place around, great location. - snrstang

This park is 5 star hotel quality. The clubhouse is spectacular with a heated pool, hot tub, and beautiful common area with a big screen tv.
We called while we were on the road and were able to get a site that afternoon. It was a 45 foot pull through, which is exactly what we needed. We were very happy with the customer service here and were happily surprised that there wasn't a dog anywhere in this park. We wish all RV parks would follow this example and we would definitely return. - Perfection expected

This campground is highly rated by Good Sam. I guess that's why 80% of the campground is permanents or long term seasonals. The sites are fine for a big rig but with some sites occupied by two cars navigating can be challenging. We had a pull thru site but ended up backing out and then just barely missed a car as we made one of the turns upon exiting.
The CG is located a 1/4 mile from Walmart and is easily accessed from I-90.
The pool is indoors and has a max capacity of 7! We didn't use any of the amenities provided. - 12858

This place is noting to write home about! We had to stay for business but couldn't wait to leave. The train horn all night long is not good. Some of the permanent resident places are really in shambles. OK in a pinch but we will not be back. - Rambotbm

The Park cafe is closed but the bathrooms and laundry are new. It's a bit dusty and the internet is very slow. We were able to use our Direct TV dish. - bdmiller

The sites are definitely big enough for a big rig with four slides but the streets are gravel/dirt and soft. If they were very wet you could get stuck. The park could use some maintenance. The sites are grassed which is nice. The train runs all night but with the windows closed it wasn't too bad. There are two full rows of full time RVers and most of them have junky spots. There is a service station with diesel and propane and a cafe and convenience store on site. An old mobile home was the bathrooms, showers and rec hall but I never got up enough nerve to go inside to inspect. There are phone hookups in the first two rows (where the full time sites are.) We stay here any time we go through Sandpoint because it is convenient and there really isn't much choice but we are just going through. The campground is really in Sagle, ID, about 6 miles south of Sandpoint. - Carly

Sites are narrow, road is pot holed, just decrepit is best way to describe. When registering, the office is away from sites, and its a good thing (for them). Pay attention when registering, there is a NO REFUND policy! When you get to the sites, you'll understand why. I carried my 9mm whenever I left the motorhome to walk the dogs. Would stay in Flying J before I'd stay here again. - DenMortonUSMC

The park is not visible from the office. The fees are paid in advance of driving into the park and non-refundable with less than 48 hours notice. There's the hook; once you see what you've got yourself into, it's too late. I'd guess 75% of the park spaces are full time residents. Lots of tattoos, bald headed men with pointy beards. Scary looking women and dirty, unkempt, children. The cops drive through regularly. We witnessed a male being arrested. Our first night there it sounded like a gun being fired at the other end of the park. I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone. - Beth Wilder

Where to start? The dirty pool, the drug alley on the east end, the neighbor's sewage that they 'couldn't afford to fix' after asked about it, or the drug overdose??
The pool. Although it sounds nice to be able to swim, go to the river instead. Be careful of something along the lines of E. Coli. I'd rather swim in a stagnant pond than that pool. Their 'hot tub' is one that you might have in your backyard- just as dirty as the pool.
The east end of the park requires a concealed carry permit if you expect to walk the entire length of it & make it out alive. Dilapidated trailers with tenants to match- everything tapped & boarded up, trailers without doors, junk everywhere, & the smell of a transfer station- and I'm not necesarily one to judge a book by it's cover, but when the ambulance & fire truck show up for a drug overdose, you just have to call a frog a frog.
One of the neighbors had a sewer leak but claimed it was their grey tank & they couldn't afford to fix it. The maintenance man had crawled under & saw toilet paper hanging out of a cracked pipe. They were told they had 24 hours to fix it or vacate but the 24 hours had came & gone but the smell & the tenant stayed.
The owner/manager's dog is usually fenced up outside of the office. Unfortunately, it doesn't like to be fenced up & was loose on a regular basis. - Toyota916

As other reviewers have noted, spaces close together; some permanents even claiming adjoining sites for parking and giving you the "stink eye" if you get near it. Paved roads and gravel sites, most somewhat level. Very little to no shade. The place could use a good general cleaning and a good amount of maintenance (sites currently without electricity, busted cable connections, etc.) to get it back in attractive condition. Another thing, don't dare hook up to the water, even with a filter! It is terrible, could not even swallow my first gulp! Power ok for our 30a unit at 120v. Rest rooms and showers clean and maintained. Did not use laundry room. No picnic table, fire ring, patio, etc. Very little room to park a tow vehicle; host simply had us park in a non-functional site. Registration office a paper and junk cluttered mess. Camp host appeared to be trying to make a go of it but seemed completely overwhelmed. I guess location is everything as this is extremely close to downtown, the college, bike paths and the river. All in all, I'd pay the considerable extra bucks next time and stay at the campground across the bridge. - pyrthkr

Older park with pretty tight spaces. We struggled to get our 5 th wheel in our spot. Great manager, super helpful and friendly!!
My biggest complaint was access to the park, we had to cross a very busy 4 lane road to get in and out, not an easy thing. - Idalogger

I was quite sad with the condition of this park. It is in a great location, but would be a better park with 1/2 the spaces and some greenbelt areas. Everything is just 30 year old asphalt and the average rigs have grown over the years making this feel rather claustrophobic. Spend the extra money and actually stay in an RV park, not a ghetto. - stagner

Nice State Park with several loops near a lake, fairly level paved pull through site with water and electric, but no sewer, but there are two different dump stations.
Bathrooms and showers were very clean and modern.
There are a number of hiking trails and an old Navy Brig turned into a small museum.
The park was a Naval training base during WWII.
I thought it was a little pricey for what you got, but we would stay here again if passing through. - bukhrn

This is a beautiful park with many miles of hiking rails that we enjoyed immensely. We were in the Gilmore loop but all of the loops were well laid out and each had their own attraction. The restroom building in our loop was amazing, certainly not what I expected for a state park. This place is peaceful and we will definitely return. - Tech5709

Beautiful park! We were in Gilmore campground, one of 4 individual campgrounds in this large, historic park; this campground's 2 loops are wooded with wide, paved sites (pull-thru and back-in) and electric-water hookups. Waldron campground, the largest, has more open sites and more companion sites, which are grouped close together. Whitetail and Snowberry are deeply wooded with tight, winding roads and smaller campsites, well suited for tents, popups, truck campers and small trailers. Bathhouses varied; those in Gilmore were quite new, with individual, unisex shower rooms. Multiple camp hosts kept them quite clean. Lots of history - the Navy had a big training base here in WWII - nature and beautiful scenery here, as the park is on the shore of Lake Pend d'Oreille. Unfortunately, the smoke from many wildfires limited our enjoyment of the latter. We enjoyed seeing a large flock of wild turkeys, deer, squirrels, and various birds in this park. Quiet, as most of the campgrounds are away from any main roads; a state route does run through the middle of the park but has little nighttime traffic. Would love to come back again; we wish it weren't quite so far away from home. - PokyRVer

We really enjoyed our stay here! We tied up our boat to the lakeside bulkhead right in front of our motor home making it secure and easily accessible. The kids had a blast fishing, swimming and feeding the ducks in the lake. Parking was convenient. The public bathrooms/showers were very close by. They even had lockers! The staff was friendly. We'll definitely stay here again. - User3422

Waterfront sites are 30Amp and not good swimming sites. Only 5 or 6 shaded sites. Parking area (sites) is an open area surrounded by city streets, thus no privacy or security. - John R
