25 RV Parks near Coeur d'Alene, Idaho
Aug 2016 - $10.00
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

Stayed at this park for 4 nights and was pleasantly surprised. Helpful staff, clean, quiet park. It would be nice if there were a few more trees for shade as it got hot in July, but overall would definitely stay again. Great beach access for swimming, and a nice place to take the dogs for a swim also. Easy access to downtown Coeur D'Alene. - Michelle k pateick

The spaces are pretty spaced apart, but the gravel roads between the rows are narrow. Wifi was almost nonexistent, so we had to use our Hotspot a lot. Otherwise, it was a nice park, with a nice beach for the park guests along the river feeding into lake Coeur D' Alene. - Vipermanden

This park may have financial problems: The park advertises free WiFi, except two of the towers are unavailable and the one that is available, by the office, offers intermittent service. Supposedly good service occurs within 50' of a working tower, but with 166 sites, it might be a bit crowded by the office if we were all to take that advice. The "local cable channel" service has been reduced to 16 channels from the 60+ channels listed in their brochure. It is a nice location, after all, it is in Coeur d'Alene and there is a decent (20') space between sites. The office personnel were friendly. We won't be back. - Lorelei Gustafson

Note this park is changing its name from River Walk to Riverstone. The signage at the park says Riverstone but the web site is still River Walk.
The park is very conveniently located to the interstate; you can walk to a upscale shopping area with restaurants, brand new movie theatre, business services like Verizon and massage. Plus there are several coffee bars (seems on every corner). Grocery stores are close. The sites are VERY TIGHT for big rigs but they do have pull-through spaces and make every effort to fit you in.
While you're in the area, be sure to make the 30 minute drive up to Farragut State Park; it was a not-so-secret Navy Training Center during WW II and they have a very interesting museum. The park is located on Pend Oreille, a pristine lake with a family friendly swimming cove. Silverwood, a very popular theme park, is also located right next door. - Tessa & Toadee on the Road

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

Stayed 3 nights in a 25ft RV, did not enjoy, campground is right on a main busy 4 lane street. It appears that a lot of construction type workers stay here and get all the best spots away from noisy street, very loud trucks when leaving for work at mornings. Very tight spots. I could not even put out our awning it was so packed afraid of hitting next camper. One good note the bathrooms were very nice, but that's all that was. - RVandFree

I believe that I am one of the people some of the other reviewers are referring to in their review. I tried to make my reservation at the same time as M.G. I spoke with a female employee on the phone when we made our reservations for July 7th thru July 9th. When we arrived on the afternoon of the 7th we were told that they did not have our reservation, because we were a month late! They claimed we made our reservation for JUNE 7-9th! REALLY?!?!? How is that possible when the reservations were made on June 17th!!! Retroactive reservations I guess... The employees were dumbfounded. Their solution was to kick other RV'ers out of their spot and cram our 38" & 40' 5th wheels into one spot, and stuff the other person somewhere undesirable for them (They were also very unhappy with how it was handled). There's no way the two big rigs would even come close to fitting in the single spot they proposed. We would then have to find somewhere in the facility to park our tow vehicles, but they didn't know where that would be. After more than an hour of nonsense, we told them we wanted a full refund and we were leaving. The one thing they did right was issue a full refund. We were sent off on a Friday afternoon with no reservations anywhere, and no openings anywhere nearby. Aside from the incompetent staff and their comedy of errors, the park left a lot to be desired. As others have said, it is smack in the middle of the city on a very busy, noisy road. The spaces are very tight, cramped and buried in very tall trees. There's no way you could get any satellite TV service. The roads were very narrow. We had doubts about just being able to navigate them safely when we exited to park. A large number of the spaces in the park were taken by full-timers. The park must have very liberal rules that apply to them as it looked very cluttered and junky. Our experience left such a bad taste in our mouth that we would not return here on a dare. - JimBau

It should have been clear to me that there was going to be a problem here when we couldn't seem to make reservations on the phone. They messed them up, and booked us in the wrong month. It was dirty and crowded. No way big rig friendly, we almost couldn't drive on the main roads, for all the trees and parked cars. To their credit they did refund our money. No way in the world we would ever go back there. - Mortimus_G

Only problem with this place is no sewer. Lodge is nice and friendly. Water sprinklers need adjustments. Easy dish network connection. - yumsbpa

Really nice Elks RV park with grassy, open sites located behind the Lodge for Elks members only. Easy to navigate and sites were not too close together, plenty of room to back in and keep the toad in front of our 30 ft motorhome. Quiet and nicely landscaped. Helpful CG host. About 7 mile drive to downtown CDA. - gtogrl

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
May 2018 - $40.00
Not suited for big rigs. We have a relatively small 5th wheel (30') and the steeply sloped narrow road with overhanging trees made manuevering a challenge. Sites are flat with dirty gravel and weeds. Facility is under new ownership and they are making upgrades. Nice park for a family tent outing, but not the best option for a large RV. - DSchamp

Very beautiful campground on an inlet of the lake. We were there over Labor Day weekend, and even though it was busy, it never felt like it was swarming with people. Our campsite was great - it backed into the hill and had great privacy. The bathrooms and showers were very clean, and there will be a camp store coming in 2018 - it was under construction while we were there. The pool was very clean as well, and definitely on the "refreshing" side. Normally, there is free campfire wood, but there was a burn ban due to the extremely dry conditions and local wildfires. - Anne-F

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying in a cabin over Labor Day at Camp Coeur d'alene and had such a wonderful experience. Though the temps were hot outside, the cabin stayed cool. The camp grounds are beautiful and very clean. Beautiful being right on the water and plenty of hiking close by equals a well-rounded mini vacation. The camp is also an easy drive to downtown Coeur d'alene and the many restaurants and retail shops. The new camp hosts/managers are very accommodating and are doing a wonderful job updating the camp. We'll definitely be back! - Wendy Lynn

My overall assessment of the park is that the sites are very tight and most are on grass. For me, this is a stop for one night. I would go elsewhere if I had the opportunity for several reasons: 1) the entrance is ridiculously narrow. I consider myself to be fairly experienced and capable maneuvering my 40' MH with a toad. However, I barely cleared by inches with both the coach and the car. Had I not been perfectly aligned (and warned by other comments on this site), I would have been in a jam and could not back up without disconnecting. Tip: Be prepared to swing as wide as possible to make the entrance. Terrible entrance...period. 2) The park has some pull throughs with gravel but I had to settle for a turf with Water & Electric only. My neighbors awning was probably about 6" from my slide. 3) The highway noise is rather loud but it was warm enough to use A/C's to limit the noise. I stayed here out of necessity and would never reserve to camp here for any length of time. All that said, the best thing about the park was the friendly staff. - homey

The entrance is over a very tight bridge... but we, obviously, did it pulling a 42 ft. fifth-wheel. Once inside it is very nice. Staff was extremely nice. This is the most kid-friendly resort we have seen! Dog park. The water was too low in the creek for the rental canoes, so our neighbors got stuck and had to wade out. Restrooms & showers were old but clean. Laundry room was old, $2. for wash and .25 for 7 minutes to dry. Beautiful surroundings (!!!) but next to the freeway and very loud! - Papa Larry

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

Great Staff, they work with me when I had my truck beak down in Sandpoint. I was not able to move my rig to meet the departure date. They let me stay until my truck was fixed. - titanium

This park is close to the highway. However you feel as if you are in the middle of a subdivision. May have been out in the open at one time but is very built up around the park now. Very tight getting in and out. Sights are tight with a lot if full timers with very unsightly lots. Needs serious cleanup. On the up side, everyone is very friendly and the office and pool is very nice. - Kerch

This park uses the term "resort" which it definitely is not! There are many "homesteaders" here with rigs that are at least 20+ years old and in terrible condition. Many are skirted with giant propane tanks, wooden stairs, etc. It looks much more like a modified trailer park or a work camp. Bathrooms have plenty of space with a private shower area(locking door); however, they are not maintained well and the shower stall and curtain were both dingy from lack of cleaning. Staff was friendly but very unprofessional(young receptionist with feet propped up on desk) at check in desk. Dumpster top was broken into as well. Just not an appealing park---much less an rv resort. Don't believe this is a resort, it is just an average rv park with many homesteaders and dumpy rigs. Overpriced for what you get. Not recommended. - chilkateagle

I might have given this park a higher ratings except for the constant, loud highway noise and the well used train tracks across the street. It was very hard to get any peace and quiet. For this price, they should have cable TV and a working Wifi. The WIFI here is terrible, lucky to get three bars and you get kicked out frequently. The laundry room is also a joke. ONE washer and dryer - really!! Also they have the picnic table chained next to the trash cans so they are unusable. I do not recommend this park. - Ruffella

Lovely park. Basic park with FHU however large parking spots, lots of trees and grass and nice layout. Parking/camping fees are high in this area. This was a little less than most. There was a little road noise but not bad, an occasional train, which was kind of nice. There were some type of ground squirrels that popped their heads out of their hole and squeeked a warning to their buddies when they saw you coming. They were absolutely adorable! Management was friendly and laid back. We didn't use the restrooms/showers but saw several campers who did. Nice aluminum picnic table and BBQ grills. Good location close to Coeur d'Alene. I would certainly stay here again. - MaryIrish

Tucked back off Highway 95, but easy in and easy out. RV Park is behind the gas station and mini mart. Fairly level sites, but tree branches hang down in some areas. The employees keep the park very clean, including emptying the trash on a daily basis. The train noise is loud and fairly frequent. The laundry room is small, but inexpensive and clean. We would stay here again. - YogiNan

STAY AWAY! This is the worst park I have even been too. The bad reviews are not wrong.
We arrived for a one night stay. We we came along the street, it looked OK. Once we pulled in, it was the worst. We were stuck as we had no water and full tanks from boondocking the previous few days, so we needed a park with hookups.
When we were taken to our site, the park worker asked the full-timer in the spot next to us (about 70% are full timers) to move their car out of our tow-vehicle parking spot. But alas, they could not because the car had NO steering wheel. This park had junk cars in it.
Also, there was two bags of empty beer bottles on the table to greet us. This was sitting there after the employee looked over the site. Our site also smelled of cat or dog pee.
We just stayed in our trailer for sleeping and shower. In hindsight, I would have skipped the showers, dumped at the Flying J, and stayed at Walmart.
I do want to mention that the employee and manager were very nice. I had no issues with them, just the overall state of the park. - steammaker

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
