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). We camped at Blackwell Island RV Park in a Motorhome.

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! We camped at Blackwell Island RV Park in a Motorhome.

Nice campground right on the lake.Very short sites. Couldn't park our tow behind our rig 43 ft motorhome. The lady at the office said they were 70' sites but she was wrong. Would stay here again . We camped at Blackwell Island RV Park in a Motorhome.

Nice quiet park right on the Spokane River. No pool, but they have a small beach on the river. The pull through was just long enough to accommodate our 35' 5th Wheel and truck. Sights and most roads are gravel but there was room to maneuver. Pet areas were nice and there are a lot of open green spaces. It rained while there so there were some puddles, but they didn't seem too bad. We stayed to visit family in CDA.
We would stay here again. We camped at Blackwell Island RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Downtown CDA is about a mile or so away just across the bridge and is walkable. There are restaurants and shopping in the downtown area and also other restaurants not too far away by car. We ate at Bardenay (American/distillery) and really liked the restaurant and the food.

Large park on the Spokane River. Good-sized sites with gravel parking and grass - picnic table. No fire pits which was great (allergies).

Office staff extremely helpful and pleasant to deal with. Assigned us pull-thru site 94 at end of row close to river.

Wifi was good overall, varied with time of day (number of users). We camped at Blackwell Island RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Very nice park on the river, clean and helpful staff. A lot of the pull throughs aren't very long. We were in site 43 and our 41 foot 5th wheel left no room for parking our tow vehicle so we had to park in the overflow parking. Price was with the off season discount so it is a bit too expensive for what it is but overall it is a pretty nice park. We would probably stay here again if in the area.

This is one of our favorite RV parks and borders Lake Coeur d'Alene. We spent a week this time combining sightseeing and dog shows. All the premium sites face towards the lake so you pull straight in to your site rather than back in. You can watch the party boats going to/from the lake. There is a large open area in front offering the feeling of a more spacious site. We camped at Blackwell Island RV Park in a Motorhome.

There are several wonderful places to eat - Cedars which is walkable from the resort and the Couer d'Alene hotel restaurant 'Dockside'. Both are pricey, but worth a special treat.

Very nice, clean park. Easy to find. A bit pricey. Entrance to park might be frustrating. There didn't seem to be enough staging area. Our rig is 40' plus tow. The sight we were assigned to #54 while a pull through was situated in a round about so was hard to maneuver especially when we left. Nice and quiet on the river so really pretty. We enjoyed the walking paths. Since they weren't busy they allowed us to park our tow in another site. We would return if in the area. We camped at Blackwell Island RV Park in a Motorhome.

Level, graveled sites with paved roads, beautiful grounds around the entrance and along river, nice beach. Sites are open with a few trees, could use some more. They are planning to close down for the season in a few weeks so the price was discounted. Also you get a 5% discount for cash if you want. We camped at Blackwell Island RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Well kept park right on the Spokane River - we were in space 72 - Pull Through site . . .perfect for us. Pretty good size park good gravel road, sites level. They had many pull through sites. The sites that were on the river side really didn't have a view of the river and were for motorhomes only as the hook ups require that you pull straight into them. The sewer hook ups for those was very far back (toward the road away from the river) and some people either couldn't hook it up or had to buy an extra hose.

Showers/restrooms are individual rooms - very nice.

They have pontoon boats for rent, and other water craft (we didn't do.) Very nice restaurant within walking distance called Cedars.

They also have a clubhouse you can reserve for groups. They said they will have a large flat screen TV there next year.

Wi-Fi was good and so was the cable TV. We camped at Blackwell Island RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

On the other side of the river is a very long paved bike trail - have to cross a busy bridge on Highway 95 to get to it but the trail is very nice and goes for many, many miles - 72 I think a lot of it is along Lake Coeur d'Alene Or you can drive south of town about 1 mile and there is a large parking lot from which you can ride.

This is a nice RV park just a few minutes from downtown Coeur d'Alene. It is a bit on the pricey side, but you are paying for location. They do not offer any discounts for extended stays (weekly or monthly rates), but they don't have to because there are rarely any summer vacancies. The park offers level gravel pads, paved access roads, and decent (but not great) WiFi. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The sewer hook-ups are slightly elevated (about 8 inches above ground level), but the hookups are otherwise good. The only negative about this park is that they run the irrigation sprinklers every night and they spray water on your RV and vehicle leaving water spots. Overall, this is a good park and we would stay here again if we were in the area. We camped at Blackwell Island RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

An EXTREMELY busy RV "resort" on the shore of the lake/river. You are paying for location, location, location. The office staff was friendly and helpful, but enforcement of the "rules" about noise and riding bicycles after dark was non-existent.

If you want a great place to vacation by the lake, and be within a few minutes of the tourist trap that Coeur d'Alene has become, this is your place. If you are looking for a quiet place to stay while visiting family in the area... keep looking. We camped at Blackwell Island RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The scenic cruise around the lake was a nice couple of hours on a hot day... get the Groupon! Close ups of multi-million dollar houses and all the other properties of the Hagadone group (who owns the CDA resort, the cruise line, the golf resort, the floating restaurant, the marine.... and the town. Tune out the constant sales pitch and the begging for tips from the captain at the end. (I should tip you for not sinking the boat... really??)

Great place to stay. Boat dock, swimming area plus you can rent jet skis and houseboats. The river sites are the best, pull front in, lots of grass and shade. Very close to the river. Marina with nice resturant very close by. Book early. We camped at Blackwell Island RV Park in a Motorhome.
