3 Parks near Athol, Idaho

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

Rate is for non-resident and includes a $10 reservation fee and $5/day motor vehicle fee for our car in tow. Site was paved, 50 amp electric, and water. Good Verizon cell/MiFi reception and good satellite reception. There was a forest fire nearby and many of the day use facilities were closed, but the Gilmore campground loop was open. We stayed two nights and would return. - Dave51

A brand new park just east of Athol, Idaho. Good location, easy access, friendly staff, good elbow room. Will probably be a 9 or 10 in a few years as they work out the kinks.
Currently paved entrance and interior roads with gravel sites. Decent WiFi, long pull throughs for larger rigs and shortish backins for class B and class C rigs. Decent amount of space between rigs.
Has a good basketball court and nice swimming pool.
Easy access to resort and sites themselves. Some trees but cut high enough to not interfere with most sites.
Very nice looking facility which will get even better with age.
We'd return again. - Tucsonbenz

This campground is basically here to use Silverwood(theme park). It is a weekend warrior get away to utilize the theme park. The amenities here is basically the theme park we did have full hookups 30 amp, water, sewer. The rules that they give you to abide by or basically nonexistent for the people that camp inside the park. I seen fire rings with wood being burned that's a no-no. I seen up to four vehicles parked in a space with at least 15 to 20 people that's a no-no. I'm not sure what the campground host responsibility is, but from what I could tell they were nonexistent. Look if your young family you want to go to the theme park you will love this place kids running everywhere you can throw rocks, football baseball whatever you want and not have to worry about hitting or not hitting something, now if you're used to rules and people abiding by rules and some type of orderly conduct and parking don't come here, you will be disappointed. We were here for a two day event at the theme park so we made the best of it but I will probably not come back. - monaco cruiser

The only reason to stay here is to do silver wood and for that it works great! Road noise, check. No WIFI, check. As close as you can get to silverwood without staying in the park, check. Friendly staff and a discount to the park. It is what is and if your not too picky it serves the purpose well. - Fishmon

Our site was not level. The grass at our site and surrounding sites was overgrown and under the picnic table it appeared to never had been mowed. We had full hook ups and they did work. There are many portable bathrooms around. The campground was a big field they made into as many sites as possible, no trees or shade. We would not stay here again. - Thatcher Family
