We chose this park because it is about half way between other places we stayed at. It is situated along the Coeur d'Alene river, about 30 miles east of Coeur d'Alene, just off of I-90. It has scenic views of the river. There is a beautiful paved bike trail that runs through the park and follows the river for miles in both directions. The access is paved, the pads are concrete, and very level. Most, if not all, have electric and water, some have sewer. The owners are very friendly and helpful. The access to I-90 is convenient but the freeway noise is a downer... although this was no bother when we were sleeping. The bathrooms were clean and perfectly functional, but VERY homemade ("funky"), and might not pass code where we live. - MalamuteMan

Very nice host/owners. Site/park was easy in/easy out, with a little road construction at the I-90 exit. GPS was spot on. As another review mentioned (and I'm glad they did) I had an issue with low voltage - 110 was all I could get at times. Be sure to have a EMS. Didn't hook-up water so I don't know about that. Some sites have sewer hook-ups available, but not all. Big bicycling area, ride from the park! My Verizon jet pack pulled in 2 bars, so was able to check e-mail. My AT&T phone dropped calls with one bar...or none. For one night it was a good place to stop. - Ella18

Beautiful, peaceful park right on the Coeur d' Alene River. The pads are concrete and level. The grass is kept mowed in a large area so pets can be walked in comfort.
There is no wifi available in the park. Also, there's no cable or air channels.
Some road noise from the nearby interstate. It's the price to pay for easy on/easy off. - User3146

Fantastic new owners and this place is great fun! Highly recommended! Especially loved the large beach front on the Coeur d'Alene River (with fire rings). - Wesley Harrison

We needed a place to stay after driving east from Seattle and saw this campsite as an opportunity to get away from the freeway traffic noise. Originally we were set to camp in an electric site but, after looking around elected to stay on the grass in the middle away from other campers so as to get a little more privacy. Campsites spaced close together. Manager quite nice when we arrived but caution to any big rigs that the turn by the office is tight. Unhook at the gas station before you enter the park. Large fifth wheels might be a tight fit. Campground itself has plenty of room for big rigs or 5th wheels if you can negotiate the 165 degree turn. - photokent

A resort in the making but not quite there yet. If your focus is on rafting a beautiful river in some spectacular country this may work for you. As an RV campground for overnight or as a base for touring, not so much. Rates get you a grassy spot near a power post. Available water is marked Non Potable. If there is 50 amp we missed it. The 30 amp we had could not keep up with our A/C. Popped the post breaker repeatedly. Buildings are remnants of a bygone day, tired and worn. Despite being 2 miles North of I-90 it's amazing how much traffic noise there is. Having said all that the folks working to make a go of it are good hearted and hard working. - CharlieB

This campground has been sold and will be developed into condo's. - Bob2013

This is a typical KOA. The sites are adequate in size, and not back-to-back. At least your slide isn't touching your neighbor's slide or his awning like some KOA's. The campground is small in size and they seem to pack them in pretty tightly; especially the tenting area. I've never seen so many tents crunched together. The roads were pretty dusty and we had to keep our windows closed from the passing vehicles. The campground is about a quarter mile from a bike trail and within walking distance of town. We probably would not stay there again if in the area. - shirleyj62

Check in very easy, fun people in the office. The managers are simply special. They worked very hard to get a pull through site for our big rig. Since they were booked solid we had 1 night with water/electric and through shuffling, we had full hook up for the next 6 nights. Park has new owners and their crew, working 10 - 12 hours a days, are improving the property. There were many children here who had a lot of play area and equipment to use. There is a large fenced dog area. This is a rustic setting and is just what we look for. The entry is tight as reported by others but there is a warning sign to swing wide. We are 60 feet long with tow and cleared nicely plus a longer rig followed us in. The negatives reviews are unwarranted. Ours was a pleasant stay and would return again. - edhcook1

Entrance very tight for big rig. Sites are small. Water pressure very low. A/C power adequate although line 1 was lower than line 2 by 10 Volts AC. Make sure you ask for Good Sam discount when you check in, otherwise you are out of luck. We arrived before check in time of 2 PM and they would not let us check in or let us park on the property. Not very accommodating. Would not stay here again. - Pete M.

I was reluctant to stay here due to ratings but was pleasantly surprised. Park was old but we enjoyed our stay. There were a few pull through spots and ours was good. - Alan King

The sites are terraced so, while they are close, it didn't feel too close. We have a 35 ft 5th wheel and we're able to get in and out with no problem. The pool was great and we enjoyed the woodsy feel of the campground. - Melissa Koppenhaver

IF YOU HAVE ANYTHING BIGGER THAN 30 FEET, DON'T GO HERE. This includes 5th wheels and motor coaches. Old KOA. No store or supplies. Do have ice. Located in a canyon that is narrow and very difficult to maneuver in. We are in a 40' with toad. Had a very difficult time getting into the space. Its all uphill to drive to space with very tight turns. Could not get straight into the space so was pushed over to the next space. Less that a foot between us. Power is right there too. I could reach out and touch the neighbor's power pole from my bedroom window. It was right under the window. Leaving was next to impossible. Had to unhook to get out. Steep dirt driveway. Had to ask the people across the street if they could move their truck for a few minutes. Space was dirt and a bit of a mess. Old power system and damaged. Sewer connection buried and a very long way from our hook up. Did not matter as we were there for the night only. They offer free firewood though.. And a old wash tub fire ring. It is popular, however. as it is on the lake, or at least has some access to the lake. - Bobcat1

This campground and RV park has great promise and some special amenities, but it has some real deficiencies and needs overall attention to maintenance. The setting is lovely, with hillside sites shaded and cooled by huge pine trees, all above a small lagoon that is connected through channels to the beautiful Lake Coeur d'Alene. One canoe and two paddleboats are available at no charge. The hillside sites are ideal for tents, campers and small RVs but really too small for larger rigs and trailers with tow vehicles. However, there are some major deficiencies, beginning with water pressure, particularly as you get higher up the hillside. With the camp full on a Sunday morning, there was NO water at the upper bathroom/shower facility and the upper-level campsites. This condition lasted a few hours and is a common occurrence, according to other campers. Additionally ... the pool is closed and apparently has been awaiting repairs for a long time; walkways around the office are unfinished and anything but accessible; bathroom and shower facilities are uninviting and not well maintained - in the men's facility one of three showers and the only urinal were broken the day we arrived. There is no dump station. In addition to the big things above, the entire facility just needs maintenance attention - bathrooms and dishwashing facilities cleaned more often, exposed electrical wiring covered, etc. With all that said, we enjoyed a three-night stay, working around the problems noted above. We would consider staying here again, but would love to see the problems 'fixed' so this park could be all it should be. We paid $44 for one night a full-hookup site, and $28 for 2 nights at a site with electric and water only. - BobbyG2016

The rate reflects a 50% Federal Senior Pass discount. The standard rate of $20 is quite high for a campground where the only services are trash and pit toilets. There is water with a hand pump, so not suitable for filling a tank. There is no dump station. So, you will want to arrive with fresh water and empty waste tanks.
Is is important to emphasize that this campground is not suitable for big rigs. The interior roads are very narrow and the sites short. Also, during our visit there were fairly large branches extended over the roadway, so it is not suitable for high-profile vehicles unless you don't mind some potential scratches. By the time we discovered this, we were fairly committed on a one-way road and decided to go with the potential scrapes.
Many of the sites are tent only. About half of the sites are reservable. We arrived without reservations on a Thursday at about 11, and had about three sites to choose from. The sites are paved and many are well separated with thick vegetation for visual separation.
The campground is in a valley, so you will not see sun very early in the morning and it will go down about 4 or so in the summer. It was very quiet and dark at night. The campground is about 15 minutes outside of Coeur d'Alene. It feels very isolated. There was no camp host and some campers looked like they were living here. We had some slight concern about leaving our motorhome here as we visited the town, but fortunately, we had no problems. We were able to get a good Verizon signal for voice and data. The campground is certainly much less expensive than the commercial campgrounds in the area. - TheJim

Just stayed one night as a stopover on our way from Oregon to Montana. A little pricey at $20 for dry camping NF campground. They take reservations here online, otherwise it's first-come first-serve on available sites. Definitely not for big rigs. We have a 29-foot 5th-wheel and we really struggled to back into site 16 due to the very narrow road and might have scratched up our truck's front corner needing to turn into the bushes, but got it in backing the wheels all the way to the tire stopper (back end extending into the campsite area). The hosts ended up being a family with teenage and young kids and seemed too busy with their brood than to help the campers or even remove old tag posts so that we could have seen that there were other available sites to choose from! We arrived at 4pm with check-out at 1pm so there was no excuse for not cleaning up the site posts. The sites have a lot of undergrowth foliage so you can't see your neighbors, which is how camping should be! The creek was completely dry at our visit. Each site was concrete pad with picnic table and fire pit w/ grill. It's dry camping here and no dump station, so come with full/empty tanks, generator, and stocked groceries. Vault toilets only, no running water or showers. There were water spigots for drinking/cooking and dogs. Lastly, we work online so Verizon LTE data coverage is important, and we got strong service here. - Sara C.

Decent NF campground with narrow spaces, but lots of space between spots and all right next to the creek. Pit toilets, bear boxes, and that's about it. Many spots will need some leveling aid. Not a campground for large rigs. - mikeyair

Don't be fooled by the "work in progress" when you drive in because this was the most awesome RV park I have stayed in. You get a nice safe quiet stay on a beautiful river. You could not find better food right there in the restaurant and there is alcohol to boot. The owner will go out of her way to make you right at home. I plan to return to stay in the guest rooms next time I fly in. The atmosphere is peaceful, fun, and relaxing. - Simone Michelle

This campground is listed in the Trailer Life Directory, but certainly should be avoided. It is hard to find, hard to navigate in and lacks decorum you expect for a minimal family park. I left early for lack of cell phone or Internet access and could not get a refund from owners. - Mack L

I would really like to give this campground a good review because the owners are really nice and friendly, but the park leaves a lot to be desired. We needed a place to stay for the night when all the camps on the south end of Lake Coeur de Alene were full on a Friday in July due to some sort of festival that was going on that weekend. This camp is on the banks of the St. Joe River just outside of Saint Marie. It's an old school "ma & pa" type camp without much updating. The sites are close together on dirt/gravel and slope upward toward the back where there is a grassy area along the bank of the river. I would imagine a lot of leveling would be necessary. Most are probably long enough to accommodate big rigs but you'd probably have to disconnect anything you are towing. Also, there is little to no view of the river from the sites because of trees and bushes. Most sites do appear to have some shade. There are one men's and one women's restroom which appeared to be clean (didn't use them) and no showers as far as I could see. We didn't need hookups that night so settled for just parking in an area on the large lawn they have where there were several trees for shade. The fee was $15 for dry camping which beat the $38 for the full hookup sites for us. One big drawback is a gravel quarry operation that runs across the road all day until 7 p.m. and is noisy enough to be annoying. At least it was quiet in the evening. I didn't find many options in the area for RV parks, so if you need a place for a night in the are this will suffice, but I honestly can't recommend it for much more. - Pdxjoanne

Sites are like a parking lot.... very close together. The things that made this park magical for me are 1) you back right on to Lake Coeur D'Alene (almost everyone has waterfront property) 2) proximity to the Trail of the Coeur D'Alenes cycling path and 3) proximity to water activities like kayaking. Loved this. Sunsets were amazing. Washroom/shower could be cleaner. - tracyhmcd

The glowing review from 2 years ago fooled us into staying here, since we wanted to ride the bike trail along the lake. The park is very convenient for that, plus water sports. Some of the sites on the lakefront have shade trees, although they are narrow sites and you might get a stupid neighbor. The older couple next to us decided to pull forward instead of backing in for the proper hookups. Since their electric cord was too short (duh), they just plugged into our power pole. We were on the 30amp, so they used the 20amp. And our voltmeter dropped to the danger zone, below 110. Luckily, we had not turned on the AC yet, though it was very hot. Told the neighbor to plug into his own power pole ! Things got more hectic as 2 rental trucks showed up with tents and supplies for a bike excursion company that took over the grass tenting area,and some 30 or so cyclists arrived, mostly families. They proceeded to trash the one restroom/shower house, which was pretty nasty anyway, since it's open to ANYONE. We were happy to be on the trail but not in these conditions. If you have a big rig and they can fit you in and you don't use the shower, you'll be better off...but good luck with the steep driveway into the park. At least the cell and internet worked fine on Verizon. By the way, that solitary shower takes quarters only. Can't believe we paid $35 plus shower money for this dusty parking lot. - Annie's Song

This is a gem of campground! Right on the Lake of Coeur d'Alene with marina, a small beach and the 70 mile bike trail of the Coeur d'Alene's located beside it. Hospitable camp host and beautiful scenery! There is a sewer dump on site. It is about 1 hour from the city of Coeur d'Alene and, if towing, best to access via I-90 and highway 3. The scenic route highway 97 is very narrow and winding for towing but gorgeous view for a drive. We will definitely return and have recommended the campground to family and friends. - jlo

Nice Elks lodge and RV park. Good 50 amp service and good water pressure which end up at the rear of your RV. Access road is gravel and the large sites are grass with plenty of room for tow vehicle. The lodge is nice and the staff friendly. Restrooms are available in the lodge, although we didn't use then. - NormansontheHorizon

This is a very nice Elks lodge and RV park. 50 amp and great water pressure. The biggest negative is no site sewer or onsite dump. The RV park is on grass but plenty of room for awnings and toad/tow vehicle. The lodge is very nice and the staff very friendly. very convenient to restaurants and shopping. would stay here again. - bthomforde
