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.

This was a nice park in a lovely town. We thoroughly enjoyed the beach and did spend some time swimming in the river. The park is laid out well and there was plenty of room for our 45' motorhome and the Jeep.
It is a short ride to get to the Coeur d'Alene bike trails, which are fabulous.
The folks in the office could not have been nicer! We would stay here again. We camped at Blackwell Island RV Park in a Motorhome.

No discounts are offered at Blackwell Island. They did give us a $10 coupon for for $50 purchase at Albertsons grocery. The park is nicely landscaped and tries to maximize its waterfront location on the Spokane River. The sites, however, are lacking considering the $50+ per night cost. Very few trees, very little grass and a lot of gravel - just blah. The sites are FHU, 50 amp with good WiFi. We also had good Verizon reception and satellite reception. We camped at Blackwell Island RV Park in a Motorhome.

Campsites were adequately spaced on gravel pad. Laundry facility was nice but small for size of campground. Pretty lake with beach area for relaxing or renting a kayak or paddle boat. We camped at Blackwell Island RV Park in a Motorhome.

Disappointing. The first 1/2 of the sites appeared larger & better maintained grass. I felt our site was in the "shabby" area of the park. We have stayed here before & was fully satisfied. The park has gone down in quality & appearance. 50 amps & plenty of water pressure. No shade. Laundry facilities are very good. We camped at Blackwell Island RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

In the Spokane River, beach & rentals. Riverstone nearby: restaurants & movies. Downtown cda nearby

We stayed a total of four nights as part of a tour group. The sites were level with grass on both sides. Had good water pressure and 50 amp service. They have cable but there was so much static you couldn't watch it. They say they have internet and we were able to get on it for about 5 minutes the whole time we were there, very frustrating. Ended up using our Phone as a hotspot to get internet service. Very nice park and dog friendly and you can tell by the piles laying around. Even though the location is great we would stay someplace else if we ever got in the area again. We camped at Blackwell Island RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The down town area is great with lots of shopping and places to eat. One restaurant is with in walking distance of the park and located on the water.

Very crowded. The amenities were nice and included a nice beach area and dog park. Although sites had some space between them, there were so many RVs in park it actually felt like a parking lot, at least to us. We camped at Blackwell Island RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Good point right on the Spokane River. No shade. Large park. Very little privacy between campsites. We camped at Blackwell Island RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Close to restaurants and far enough off the freeway not to have noise.

We enjoyed our stay here very much. We parked along the row that faces the entrance road. Generally, we would not choose a location along the road; however, this actually ended up being quite private and had a nice tree shading our RV door in the late afternoon heat. We also enjoyed riding our bikes from there into downtown Coeur d'Alene. We found the site and grounds very lovely, particularly the beach along the riverfront. We did not use Wi-Fi , cable, the restrooms, or the laundry. We had good cell service via Verizon. We plan on staying here again. We camped at Blackwell Island RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

With a short jaunt over the bridge (very wide bike path lane), you can connect to the very long bike path that leads through downtown Coeur d'Alene and beyond. Very enjoyable.

Located right on the Spokane River where it meets Lake Coeur d'Alene, this is a picturesque campground. The park is predominantly pull-thrus so in/out access was very convenient. Site length was decent and accommodated a 39' rig and truck very well. Pad was gravel and reasonably level. Site had a picnic table and decent space between other sites. Check-in was easy and the office staff very helpful. Electric, water & sewer were conveniently located and functioned well. Wi-Fi connectivity was not so good. Cable was ok. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Blackwell Island RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

The campground is a great place to home-base from while you tour the Coeur d'Alene area. There are numerous spots with stunning views and lots of history involving the early explorers and mining.

A decent enough park for our 45' motorhome. Better parks are in the area; however sites at those parks are somewhat tight and just gravel sites with not much of a view. A little expensive we thought for the area! We camped at Blackwell Island RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

If staying at this facility avoid the back row sites. Too tight and not very interesting (no views etc).
