We probably were assigned to the most Unlevel Spot in this park, but thanks to the LevelLegs on our Tiffin, all came out O.K. They only offered 30 Amp, but it was a Full 30 Amp. with No Problems. We camped at Island View RV Park in a Motorhome.

Beautiful lake view and exceptionally friendly owner. However, not designed for larger motor homes. It's an old campground with rough uneven roads to camp site. Deer roaming freely through campground. We camped at Island View RV Park in a Motorhome.

Not sure what other reviewers see in this place. Very tight randomly angled "spots" that are burnt to a crisp or just dirt placed in some trees. Called ahead twice and was assured we had a nice spot in the shade. Got there they never heard of us, were basically full but attempted to put us in a spot with power poles on each side that made any attempt to level a joke. We left. Would never return. Can't even see the lake from any spots since the office hides it and the local access road divides it. Sandpoint/Hope area is great, just find somewhere else to stay. I have no idea what they charge. We were never quoted a price and left without registering. We camped at Island View RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is one of our favorite places to visit on the planet. It is family owned operation that clearly shows a great deal of pride in ownership. Location is right on the shores of the most pristine Lake Pend Oreille. Before discovering this little piece of Heaven our family always vacationed in BC Canada at the Shuswap Lakes. If you've ever boated the Shuswap you will understand over crowded screaming Jet skies galore and constant water chop with an added bonus of - ten degree colder water. Hope Idaho is a gem of a community that is going to explode! There are a lot of friendly people you will meet there that have been coming to this park for many years. We have even met multi generational families who keep coming back to this campground. Trust me my friend you will too come back because there is something extremely special about this place and the great people who run it! We are booked from August 4 ~ 18th 2016. While we are there we will be booking next years vacation. I would recommend you make reservations. They don't have fire pits but you are allowed to have a fire off the ground. They have a community fire pit up at the lake front where its a great place to roast some marshmallows and meet your neighbors. There is also a small store for ice ice cream and essentials. Boat dock and launch facilities. Shopping in Sand Point is twenty minutes down the road. Kids and pets are welcome. I am telling my fellow Canadians to get down here. Coors lite in Canada is 47 bucks for 18. Last year in Sand Point we paid 13 bucks for 30. Cheap beer, Clean open water, Sunshine, beautiful scenery, Sunsets that will make you tear up whilst sipping your cheap beer. What more could you ask for? From Calgary its a 6.5 hour trip, flat pull around Lake Koocanusa. Little twisty but no steep mountains. We camped at Island View RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

There are water front marinas nearby that have floating restaurants. Boat rentals etc... There is a small town nearby called Clarke Forks and they put on a spectacular July 4th parade. The people of Clarke Forks are friendly and inviting. We always leave the parade with a smile. Its not a Rose Parade or Macy's Parade but it is so genuine, down home small town feel that makes it so special.

Spent five days here on a shake down trip of our "new" trailer. All went well and had a very peaceful relaxing and gratefully uneventful journey in our used but good trailer. The host were friendly and helpful. We would stay here again. We camped at Island View RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

A nice older park run by nice people. We enjoyed a week here. It is on the shore of Lake Pend Orielle with its own small protected dock, but most of the park is across the road. Most sites still have a partial lake view. Sites are grass with grass or gravel parking. Not very wide but room for slides and awnings. Deer graze in the park daily, which could be entertaining or annoying, depending on your perspective. We camped at Island View RV Park in a Motorhome.

Park is nice enough, but you should know that it is pretty "rustic". Sites are level-ish, but on grass so getting level is a bit tricky if the ground is wet. THEY ONLY TAKE CASH SO BE AWARE. Yes, deer are plentiful and roam the site which is nice, but drive slowly and watch out for deer spore, which is all over the place. Bathrooms are very rustic and basic, but clean. No cable TV and no Wi-Fi unless you go to the office. Able to pick up off-air TV, just fine. We camped at Island View RV Park in a Motorhome.

Beautiful location on the penisicula near Hope, ID. Campground is on lake Poundry with most sites located across a small road in a grassy area. Approximately 8 sites located on lake side. Sites are close together and are grass. Some are more level than others. Owners are friendly and accommodating. The area is home to the Dave Thompson preserve and there are deers walking throughout the park and area, loved it. The location is beautiful and relaxing. We camped at Island View RV Park in a Motorhome.

Great owners, very friendly and helpful. Rating is based on no cable TV (cable company went out of business) and no WiFi at site. Beautiful setting with lots of things to do and see in the area. We spent a week here and will return. We camped at Island View RV Park in a Motorhome.

Very friendly park. Lots of green grass, and deer wander through the park. The lake is just across the highway. There is a swimming beach and places to sit and enjoy the sunset. We had good Verizon voice and broadband data service. Satellite TV was hampered by trees but we got some TV on the antenna. Very scenic area with many short drives in the area. Would love to come again. We camped at Island View RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is an amazing find on Lake Pend Oreille. It is not a huge RV Park, but cozy, well-kept, and one we will go back to again and again. Both of our neighbors come back every year. We were in Site No. 2, which is in the front row, facing the lake. While you don't have an open view of the lake, you can still see the lake and the sunsets. It is just a walk across the road and you are at the lake. The deer are an added bonus. Just loved the place and recommend it to everyone. We camped at Island View RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stopped here for 4 days and stayed 5 weeks. Rate based on monthly. Peaceful Mom & Pop built in the 70s, well maintained. Location and owners make it a 10. Earlier reservations made, the better. The park is a 10 based on adequate facility + owners + natural environment + area attractions. Prefer over busy Couer d'Alene area. Elec. VAC excellent, water & sewer at all sites. NOTE: One of few parks in the area with "on site" sewer hook ups. Some sites 50 amp & some 30 amp., some satellite friendly, some not - be sure to ask. Wi-fi spotty, but strong in office. Asphalt roads, sites are rock or grass but all firm and level. Generous site width, length - some 80' range. No trains or highways, just sounds of nature. Deer roam in park freely. Park located directly on Idaho's lasrgest lake, crystal clear with use of private swim area. Park has its own marina and boat launch or rent a boat nearby and dock it here. Area attractions: 15 min. from Sandpoint and 7 min. from Clark Fork. Visit Ranger Station for free map of "all roads" and enjoy road trips into area National Forests. Lots to do - mountain trails, nature, scenic views, 3 water falls, hiking, water sports,restaurants, Amish bakery, shopping - all near by - or just relax. We camped at Island View RV Park in a Motorhome.

We cannot say enough about this park. It was peaceful, friendly, and best of all, right on the lake. Great shade trees and very pet friendly. The park is located in a game preserve, so the very tame deer and flock of turkeys visit the sites often. Be sure to keep food stored as the deer will eat practically anything you leave out. The grassy sites are fairly level, but can be a bit mushy. The only slight hindrance was that drivers tend to ignore the 25 mph speed limit as they pass by the camp area. The dock needs repair, but it was a pleasure to sit there and watch the great sunsets. We will definitely return to this park! We camped at Island View RV Park in a Motorhome.

Location, location, location. Nice park, well run. Seems to have become a favorite for several to stay for months at a time. A few semi permanent tenants, with nice decks built up to their trailers or 5th's. Great views of the lake from some spots. Dock and boat ramp available. On the leeward side of the lake, so cooler in summer, warmer in winter. Game preserve, so Bambi walks thru the camps all day. You know, come to think of it - may be best for the rest of you to not visit this park. Charming place, with great sun sets! We camped at Island View RV Park in a Motorhome.
