The grounds are wooded with lovely big cedar/pine trees and the staff were nice. Sites vary in quality - ours was not that great - gravel and a grass area that had turned to weeds. Pull-through sites are considerably nicer if you can get one. For some reason it was still an OK place to stay. Quiet. - Ray333

Clean, spacious, close to shopping, not as close to lake as wanted. - Judy2shoes

Half of this park are full time people. Overall the park is fairly quiet. We were given a pull through site, but we were asked to move (they were extremely nice about it) because a big 40 ft. class A pitched a huge fit because they wanted the same site as last year. We felt to sorry for the gal in the office, that we were happy to move to another spot that was just as nice. - Kwanyen

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

This was our second stay at the Couer d'Alene Elks campground. The host was very friendly and helpful. The folks at the lodge were friendly. The sites are level grass, either end to end back ins or long pull thrus depending on the number of units on site. Water and electric only, both on a post at the rear of the site. Good WIFI has been added since my last visit. There is an antenna at the rear of the campground, so, it would seem that would be the best location for the wifi, although we were mid-way and received a good signal. There are no trees, so we got a good direct tv shot. Convenient to shopping, restaurants, churches and several free dump stations. No reservations, but you can call the host to check availability. - 15243

RV parking is in a large grassy lot behind the Club, with long (120' or so) angled gravel lanes for parking. Try to enter RV area to drive around the loop clockwise to make it easier to get into a parking lane. When busy they will double park rigs back end to back end. This hasn't happened when we were there. Good Dish and Verizon signals. Camp host is available sometimes, other times no host is on site. Good RV fueling station 1 block west on the corner. It has a truck/RV island on the east side. Fast diesel pump (large nozzle) and price was low when we were there. This is a regular stop for us, we'll always come back. - Bucky Beaver

The volunteer park host directed us right to our spot and answered our questions. The water and electric hookups were as they should be. We parked on grass which was clean and well groomed. There is no onsite dump; however, the nearby county dump is the best I have ever seen. The lodge was well equipped and had a meal almost every evening. The shopping in the area is close and has just about everything. The area is absolutely beautiful. We would certainly return here again. - Kent and Margaret

Set on the Spokane River this park is on an Island. Very pretty. If it had more gravel on the sites or if the sites were paved, I would give it a 10. Some of the roads were paved and some were gravel. There are nice adirondack chairs set out near the river for you to use. We were in site 54 with awesome views of the river, trees and manicured lawn. The rate is their "view spot", off season rate. $39 for non view, off season. - User3274

Our stay was a stop "along the interstate" and the campground was fine for that - but quite crowded with large RVs and limited site amenities.
Nice to be on the lake and decent access to the interstate (4 - 5 miles away) but it is essentially an urban campground. - Silver Skipper

Well run and maintained park, although our grass could have been cut. It is very close to CDA/ Hayden shopping and amenities. Great jumping off spot for all types of activities Will definitely stay there again. - RV 47

Originally paid for four nights and explained that we might extend, which we did after two days for an additional 5 days. There is no weekly rate since we did not request it when initially arriving. Were told that they could not change it to weekly even though it was 9 consecutive days. Not good business and we could not get a refund for any reason on the full time when we realised that there was no week allowance. The wifi is good from 9am until noon and otherwise is ultra slow. There are many long term people. Seems like the park is gradually on the decline as far as upkeep, but just our opinion. It is not on our list for a future stay. - mrbob4370

We spent 3 nights here, so we could explore the area. Nice park. The sites are a bit snug (the gravel parking area), but well kept. Good utility placement, nice pool/hot tub. The ladies at the desk were delightful. - DreamCaptn

This is by far one of the best RV parks we have stayed at. The staff is amazing. They work very hard to keep a clean safe park. The indoor pool and hot tub are great for the kids and the playground has been recently updated. Showers and bathrooms are very clean and safe feeling. The clubhouse is great to hang out and socialize. Small store with drinks and snacks. The park is close to restaurants and stores and easy to access from the freeway. Since we needed to stay 6 months for my work, we were able to bring in our own internet through Time Warner. About half the park is monthly residents, but the sites are all well maintained and clean. Satellite reception was very good. Roads are paved with a patio at each site and a picnic table. Sites are plenty wide enough for our 40 foot fifth with 4 slides and our truck and jeep. We will definitely be back next time we are in the area. - TravelOBRN

This is a campground behind a convenience store/gas station. Register at the store. Must give a $10 deposit for the bathroom/shower/laundry key. Just off the highway so easy in and out. The place is nothing special. The laundry was a dismal with broken machines. In the evening the sprinklers came on right in front of the laundryroom door. Did not visit the bathrooms because I have my own. If passing through the area I would stay here again. - camper19709

The spots with full hook ups in the middle of the park are the best because they actually maintain the lawn over there. We got stuck in one of the letter identified spots, had weeds waist high all around and generally unkempt appearance. The built in grill was falling over and there is no fire ring. There is a picnic table but it has weeds all around it. The propane at the store out front is only 2.29 a gallon, so there's that. Generally speaking the campground is not very well maintained and is next to both a busy highway and a railroad with a RR crossing, so train horns all hours. Not impressed with this park. - Stax

This was a nice little find for my scout troop to camp while visiting Silverwood. It was a quick drive to both the park (7mi.) and into Hayden and CDA for supplies. It's not like a typical RV park with manicured lawns. Think of it more like a Forest Service campground but with full hookups. The sites were generously sized with lots of vegetation between. There are no fire rings however so be prepared for that. The driveway and pads are gravel but level enough for stabilizers to balance it out. It's super secluded and pretty quiet. At times you can hear the highway and the occasional train, but never from inside the trailer. The bathrooms were a little run down but clean and we were told by the owner that they were planning to remodel them this year. Garbage service was provided as well as 30amp electric, potable water, and sewer at each site. There are also two pull throughs for larger rigs. The owner was very accommodating and exceptionally nice. We were even allowed to set up a tent. Something no other park would allow. This is definitely a gem and will plan to stay again in the future. - Jenrenee

Very friendly owner who isn't shy to let you know he is a good Christian man. Park is off the main highway 1/2 mile paved and 1/4 mile good gravel packed road. Has full hook up sites however isn't designated an RV park but more of a campground. This means you can dump your holding tanks at your site sewer connection but you cannot keep it connected during your entire stay. Wasn't much inconvenience for us as we have 4-5 day dry camping ability. Convenient to the city 10 miles away (south) and approx. six miles to Farragut State Park. Very quiet at night. A few trains but mostly noticed them during the day. As noted by other reviewers, the biggest noise comes from the machine shop next door where they like to drop the bucket on the front end loader several times a day. This park accepts cash only so come prepared. We enjoyed our stay and would consider staying again when in the area. - FulltimerFun

The actual name is Cedar Grove Dude Ranch Campground. I believe it is primarily for the people who are going to the dude ranch, as there is no signage except when you get to the main gate and you have to know about this campground and call for directions to be able to find it. There are only two pull throughs and the only way we could pull into them was to put the picnic table on the wrong side of the coach. The sites are narrow, with the slides out we were barely able to walk around the coach. The sites are separated by trees giving some privacy. We thought the price was high for what we got. No WiFi or sat TV reception. Would not camp here again. - cccnnnsss

Nice place. Sites are on a slope so pads are terraced. Free camp fire wood, free paddle boats and canoe, and a pool (not heated). Glad we found it. Kids enjoyed the small playground. - Hawkdriver

Lovely little campground under new management. Very pretty with lots of trees. Full hookups, level parking spaces. The pool was being worked on and the WiFi was being upgraded. Bathrooms were really nice and clean. Helpful staff. - CampTramp

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

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

Very friendly staff at the front office able to check in quickly. Our site was on the end with a lot of trees for shade. No cable but able to pick up 7 antenna TV stations. WiFi was good of course with the usual slow downs but it was more then acquitted. Nice area to walk the dog but not enclosed so he had to stay on lease the whole time. - Tagil

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

We have a 45' coach and found the entry to this park is narrow, crossing a bridge, one has to swing quite wide to make sure you make this, if you are uneasy with narrow spaces I would not recommend. We also were put into a tight spot, #5, and I sustained some damage to my awning front and bedroom topper trying to get enough room to deploy the slides, they would not have made it. We were moved to the original spot I was told we were going into when the reservations were made over a month in advance, which had satisfactory clearance, the next morning found a fault on my surge suppressor, got home that day and found relay was shot in the boiler, transfer switch would not work and circuit board was fried in the electric fireplace, will not go back, cannot recommend. Beware! - Garysbiz
