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

Nice park located near the lake and the Spokane River. The sites are well spaced and are long. The roads are paved and gravel the sites are gravel with grass between. The staff is helpful and friendly. It is a great place to see the sites in the area. - JDR

I don't think I've read of so many reviews that differ so widely over one park. It seems the consensus is - great location, but lousy customer service. Now, I will agree - wonderful location right on the Spokane River with a fair amount of protected beach access for the kiddos and the pontoon boats. Not far from the Lake, so if you have a suitable boat, you're all set and can launch from there, or rent one. My husband and I are now over 60 (well, I'm BARELY over 60) and our check in was swift and to the point. The gentleman who helped me was on top of it. However, there was a much younger couple next to me who were being checked in by, I assume, the owner, a woman in my age range. For some reason, she seemed to be lecturing them on something or other. I suspected that their age had everything to do with this disparate treatment than what I received. Let's just say when I walked in and when I walked out, they were still there listening to her. Otherwise, we had a fine time. Now, it was the day after Labor Day and there were vacancies, so that may have as much to do with the general peacefulness we experienced than our age, but who knows? I will also say that for the most part, we follow the rules of the park we're in, but none of the rules were too onerous. Although they did have a "dog contract" on the front of their park pamphlet. Good grief. I'd have laughed out loud at that one. And no, I didn't sign it, nor was I asked to. But then again, when I called to reserve a space, I told them about our dog and we had her out every day, so it wasn't like we lied about her. So - I think the bottom line is if you have gray in your hair you may be given a pass on nit picky stuff - and if you're young or have kids around, you may have a very different, more negative, experience. And, as others have noted, the owners have no big incentive to up their customer service game since they are on a primo property. - Ellistea

We stayed here on our 38 day Northwest Caravan. The staff was friendly and very helpful. We had a dinner in their rally hall, which was very spacious, well stocked with tables, chairs and cooking equipment. The wifi was not that great at the sites, but if you went to the office or the hall, it was good. Our site was a pull thru and it had ample space for our 32' Class C and towed. - NYParsels

Town has grown up around this park. As other reviewers have said, the right turn off the main road is tight - more than a 90 degree angle. The roads are paved, but the sites are large, rocky gravel. The spaces are very close together. Try for site 5 as the one next door has a tree and picnic table in it and I don't think they put people there too often. The water is high pressure so a regulator is needed. Lots of road/urban noise. Lots of full timers/worker guys. But it is very tidy and did quiet down at night. The staff was person was perfunctory when we pulled in, but when I had called earlier, I got a very friendly person. The plus side of this place is that it is right in town and right on the bike path. There is a nice boardwalk on the river walking distance from the park. - ALbums

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

This park has very tall trees and it's very tight. We have 43' 5th wheel and we stayed in spots B3-B4. We made it in here but it was tight. We turned our unit around when it was vacant on both sides of us so we could exit the park. Not sure we could have made the turn at the end of the Park to exit the normal way. It's close to Costco and sporting goods stores but it sits on a major road. - KSTraveler

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

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

They advertise a dump station in Good Sam but there is none there. Their answer is for you to go to a vacant full hook up site and use the dump. A recent Good Sam review said they charge $5 for this. Since we left early in the morning, and all sites were full, that was not an option. The sites are tight and close together. Awnings were close to touching the next trailer's slide out. They advertise pull through sites as being 70 feet long and back-ins at 40. The majority of of the sites are way shorter than that. When we left we had to ask 2 campers to move in order to get our trailer out. The best thing for them is the wonderful staff. I would not return there. - normdave
Jul 2018 - $80.00
The $80 reflects what we paid for 2 nights but left after the 1st so it cost me $80. This park is absolutely jam packed with very little rhyme or reason where we were parked. Had a constant flow of people walking and driving right in front of our rig headed to the bathroom. Park is definitely family oriented and full of kids on summer vacation - which is fine but not what we are looking for. Had to actually move the camp host's sign in order to pull out this morning. It's old, it's tight, and yes there is traffic noise. Very little area to walk the dog so I went out to the street in front of the park. All around unpleasant experience for us; however, if you are going with your family the kids will probably love it! - Gomoho

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 prior two Jul 18 reviews are right on. Cable TV is good, wifi was fair but seem to have filters for certain websites. Noisy from the interstate and local roads. - rncordy

We have been here a couple times in the past and have been satisfied with this park. As others have noted, the park keeps becoming more and more full of extended stay customers. Unlike others, however, we do not consider these customers a problem except for making it more difficult to get a site. We were able to get a level, back in, FHU site with cable TV that was also satellite friendly. I am not a big fan of indoor pools, but this one looked nice. The bath and laundry facilities were clean. The staff was friendly and helpful. I did not see any recycling. - Jerry S

The park was nice enough, but there were MANY permanent residents. The place looked a bit trashy with all of the modifications, insulation, and other junk that people had on their permanent spots. The entrance area was reasonably nice, but the rest was not. We got lucky in that we weren't in the part of the park that was closest to the highway, but I could see someone being VERY upset if they got unlucky and had to deal with the loud road noise at the wrong end of the park. It was fairly close Coeur d'Alene, and not too far from Spokane either. The spot itself had these odd curbs that made parking a bit difficult despite the fact that it was a pull through and should have otherwise been much easier. The staff was pleasant. AT&T and wifi service were both good. - Anthony D

The park is easy to get to. There is a gas station/store that double as the office and a drive thru coffee stand in the same parking lot. Other than trash collection I never saw owners or maintenance crew. Other than the traffic noise, the park is more than adequate. I did not use the park WIFI. There is no cable, but plenty of OTA digital channels. Sprint and AT&T both provided LTE service. My lot was near the front and therefore close to route 95; which is well traveled and noisy. There is a train that runs along 95 and a nearby intersection so the train whistle blows VERY loudly throughout the day and at least a couple times between midnight and 6AM. - Potato

Past reviews are accurate, the park has a good design and pull thru sites are long enough for a large rig. Access is excellent and interior roads are wide but there are a few boulders on the corners to keep an eye on. The woman who checked us in was great. Our site was easy to find. It was partially shaded and had average spacing from other sites. Gravel base and level. Road noise was there, it's not a bother for us. The train however rolled through at 4am. The park was a good base for us. Close to Hayden with shopping, fuel etc. Costco is about 9 miles south and has diesel with good access for big rigs. - DJR CMR

A Small, but a Very Clean, Nice, shady park, with nice, wide, gravel roads. Everything was great here, but No One enforced pet owners to 'Pick Up' after their Pets, which decent people do, anyway. Piles of 'dog poo' everywhere, and we picked up all that we had bags for. I never saw any park personnel in the park at all, just in the Office. - OlePhart

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
