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 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

Not far off the road, but not a lot of road noise. The way the sites are laid out, they can either be pull-throughs or hold two rigs.
The sites are reasonably level, not huge, but a good size. There are lots of mature trees for shade.
Restrooms are clean. Showers are individual with exterior walls. - Impkitti

Just passing through on our way to Washington state. Due to the off-season, we had a back-to-back site as a pull-through, so we had plenty of room for the truck and trailer. Very nice park manager who walked us to the site and gave us the rundown of all the hookups. Great 50 amp service, good water pressure, and sewer connection in just the right spot. Great Wi-Fi as well, but there was hardly anyone there so that could very well have been the reason.
About a block or so off the I-90, and with all the trees in the area, we really couldn't hear the freeway. We'd definitely stay here again when the time comes. - tughawks

I skipped three beautiful RV parks before coming here because they didn't have cable or over the air TV reception. I was finally directed here from another RV park in Wallace (and I had a TV show I really wanted to watch). This place is a cute, cute place to overnight in the middle of a small town. Owner is wonderful and helpful. There are back in sites, but the "pull throughs" are actually "twosie" sites where there are two RV's in a LOOOOONNNNNNNNNGGGGGG site. Fortunately, it wasn't busy and I got the LOOOONNNNNGGGGGG site to myself, although there was someone in the LOOONNNNGGGGGGGG site next to me. So for me, I pulled in, and I will just drive out. If someone came in behind me, they would have to back out if I was still in front. You get the idea. There were some "perms" in the park, but they were not too obvious. The WiFi is interesting. I had good luck with it. Each site gets their OWN bandwidth because each site has their OWN password. One device per site. It worked fine for me! Although each time you accessed it you had to go through the Login process. Laundry and showers were sparkling clean, more so than I expect from a park like this. The only downer is my site wasn't exactly level and I had to stick two rows of Lynx Blox under my back wheels because my back wheels came off the ground when I used my stabilizers. But that's not a big deal, just kind of a pain...... Some of the other sites looked more level. I highly recommend this place for an overnight if you are passing through. The price was right and you got cable and WiFi and Laundry! Laundry was $1.25 to wash and $1 to dry, at these prices, FIND something to wash! As for the cable, I scanned LOADS of channels (it took FOR-EVER!). There were a lot of music channels; and most of the channels were two and three copies of an already existing channel. But you did get AMC, Hallmark, USA, ESPN, CNN, and you get the idea.... I got to watch my TV show! - DXSMac

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

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

First of all we made our reservations here 3 months ahead of time for 5 nights and had to pay the full amount up front. After we got to the park we knew why. There are a number of very old RV's in the park which is not bad until they become delapidated with trash and junk cars around. We asked for a pull through and they gave us a back in which was also not bad except that they put us right next to a busy road and we had to run our fan at night in order to get some sleep. Then people came in after we came in with reservations made after we made ours and they gave them a quiet pull through spot at the back of the park. Then they put a tent camper next to us in a spot that had previously been occupied by a nice 5th wheel trailer. Also, our cable didn't work so we had to splice into another sites cable. Some of the permanent sites are so cluttered up that they look like a miniature junk yard. The office is closed on Saturday and Sunday except for new customers coming in. One lady who had been here for a year said that she was moving to another RV Park because the Tamerack Park had become run down since she had moved into the park. One person was parked across from us in an old car and had towels and shirts covering the windows and that was their RV.
Needless to say we will never stay at this park again and we would strongly recommend that other campers avoid this park unless you have a run down piece of junk for an RV. They would probably welcome you. - Bill-1148

We reserved over 3 months in advance. Because of nearby trees, the site they gave us was very difficult to access with a 40' rig. We had to do a lot of maneuvering to get in there. They should be more considerate and provide easier access sites for larger rigs. The site was also very narrow. The good thing is that Costco was right around the corner and a FANTASTIC sporting goods store called "Black Sheep" was right next to COSTCO. - marvls

Wonderful folks. Our truck broke down just outside of town. We called and they gave us a spot for an unknown length of time. VERY KIND. Very helpful and accommodating. This park was one less thing we had to worry about during our stressful situation. New shower "room" complete with toilet and sink. Good WiFi. Good cable. Cozy spaces. They are always working to keep the park looking good. Conveniently located across from grocery store, bus stop and more shops within walking distance. - Robin E

We pulled in and the campground is deserted. It is closed and there is a for sale sign out front. - Rayne

This park is not much. No full hookups. You have water and electric but no sewer. Have to use the dump site and they charge extra for that. No cable and to use the Wi-Fi you have to pay. This place would be OK if they still accepted Passport America, but they quit that last month. The people that run the park are real nice and in talking to them they said they were closing the park for good. This should happen soon from what they say. Would not stay here again - fuzzie1

A little diamond in the rough is found in this small out of the way park. It is a beautiful area. It is within sight of freeway but not too noisy. A nice creek runs about 100 yards away. The "Trail of the Couer d'Alenes" also runs by - 60+ mile long paved bicycle trail. The manager and owner very welcoming. There are a couple of long term tenants but their sites are fairly well kept. We used Passport America for the discount. - LesnHelen

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

Seven miles east of Coeur d'Alene I-90 Exit 22, then south and west on SR 97 for about 2 miles to bridge marked Beauty Creek; just before the bridge turn left onto Forest Road 438 for about a mile. Entrance on right. Although 32 foot RV limit is mentioned, we were able to park fiver and tow vehicle (45 feet) without unhitching. This is everything a campground should be - almost. Gravel interior road, paved spurs. Spacious sites arranged along a small creek (which was dry in July). Widely spaced (30 to 50 yards) sites with underbrush separation between sites. Typical Forest Service sites with table, our favorite round steel fire rings w cooking grill. Pit toilets, no showers, no hookups of any kind. Quiet and peaceful. Wells have become contaminated, so potable water is available only in a plastic tank near entrance - no dump station. Bring tanks full and empty. - meanderingman
