We needed a place to stay after driving east from Seattle and saw this campsite as an opportunity to get away from the freeway traffic noise. Originally we were set to camp in an electric site but, after looking around elected to stay on the grass in the middle away from other campers so as to get a little more privacy. Campsites spaced close together. Manager quite nice when we arrived but caution to any big rigs that the turn by the office is tight. Unhook at the gas station before you enter the park. Large fifth wheels might be a tight fit. Campground itself has plenty of room for big rigs or 5th wheels if you can negotiate the 165 degree turn. - photokent

A resort in the making but not quite there yet. If your focus is on rafting a beautiful river in some spectacular country this may work for you. As an RV campground for overnight or as a base for touring, not so much. Rates get you a grassy spot near a power post. Available water is marked Non Potable. If there is 50 amp we missed it. The 30 amp we had could not keep up with our A/C. Popped the post breaker repeatedly. Buildings are remnants of a bygone day, tired and worn. Despite being 2 miles North of I-90 it's amazing how much traffic noise there is. Having said all that the folks working to make a go of it are good hearted and hard working. - CharlieB

Don't be fooled by the "work in progress" when you drive in because this was the most awesome RV park I have stayed in. You get a nice safe quiet stay on a beautiful river. You could not find better food right there in the restaurant and there is alcohol to boot. The owner will go out of her way to make you right at home. I plan to return to stay in the guest rooms next time I fly in. The atmosphere is peaceful, fun, and relaxing. - Simone Michelle

Beautiful, peaceful park right on the Coeur d' Alene River. The pads are concrete and level. The grass is kept mowed in a large area so pets can be walked in comfort.
There is no wifi available in the park. Also, there's no cable or air channels.
Some road noise from the nearby interstate. It's the price to pay for easy on/easy off. - User3146

We did a drop in as our day had been confusing and a tad frustrating. What a perfect find. The Host (Owner) was so fantastic, especially since we had no reservations. You have to pass under a guide wire, and he guaranteed we could get through with our new Big Rig, and he was correct. Site was on concrete pad and very level. Only downfall that really mattered if you had ATT, there is no service. Verizon is working. - RV Roving Seeker

Pros: New asphalt roads and level concrete pads. OK water pressure. For the size of the campground, many sites will accommodate bigger rigs. Turning clearance was no problem in our 40' rig. Beautiful riverside location. Cons: Electrical voltage was on the low side (110-112) and required the use of a booster (autoformer). Restrooms/showers were clean but are in a converted trailer and thus the space is maximized by use of curtains and awkward plumbing (shower is above your head). No AT&T service. Verizon 3G (weak). No WiFi. Overall this park is great for an overnight stop, and the owners try to maximize what they have. - Phil Hyde

This campground has been sold and will be developed into condo's. - Bob2013

This is a typical KOA. The sites are adequate in size, and not back-to-back. At least your slide isn't touching your neighbor's slide or his awning like some KOA's. The campground is small in size and they seem to pack them in pretty tightly; especially the tenting area. I've never seen so many tents crunched together. The roads were pretty dusty and we had to keep our windows closed from the passing vehicles. The campground is about a quarter mile from a bike trail and within walking distance of town. We probably would not stay there again if in the area. - shirleyj62

We pulled in and the campground is deserted. It is closed and there is a for sale sign out front. - Rayne

This park is not much. No full hookups. You have water and electric but no sewer. Have to use the dump site and they charge extra for that. No cable and to use the Wi-Fi you have to pay. This place would be OK if they still accepted Passport America, but they quit that last month. The people that run the park are real nice and in talking to them they said they were closing the park for good. This should happen soon from what they say. Would not stay here again - fuzzie1

A little diamond in the rough is found in this small out of the way park. It is a beautiful area. It is within sight of freeway but not too noisy. A nice creek runs about 100 yards away. The "Trail of the Couer d'Alenes" also runs by - 60+ mile long paved bicycle trail. The manager and owner very welcoming. There are a couple of long term tenants but their sites are fairly well kept. We used Passport America for the discount. - LesnHelen

This is a small older park that could use some updating with some permanent residents. The management is great - very helpful and personable. They are definitely in the right business - dealing with people with a smile and congenial attitude. Sites are quite level gravel with grass in between and some have fire rings. All utilities worked well. Some of them are double sites that one rv would be parked behind the other or back to back but then the utilities would be on the wrong side. Cable is excellent digital and wifi is good but only allows 1 device logged on at a time as it goes by site number. I think this system makes it so no one hogs all the bandwidth but it would be nice to have the option to pay for additional devices. They kindly changed our site when I asked if there was a site that was more open with less trees to get satellite - although we didn't need it because the cable was so good. Our Verizon cell service and 4G worked great too. Restrooms were clean but the key pad didn't always work so the manager had to "jimmy" it with a butter knife. It is close to the freeway (I-90) so there is a lot of traffic noise. There was a street light right by our trailer that was so bright it was like daylight. We had to tape cardboard over our skylight and vent in our bathroom to make it dark enough to sleep. A nearby pizza place delivers pretty good pizza for a $2 delivery price. Not sure we would stay here again because of the freeway noise and the overhead light. But I repeat - the management is great - they just need to do a little updating on the facility - not much they can do about the freeway. - NiMo

An older park but well kept. Very nice owner. They take you to your site which was a good thing since I had to cross through another site to get to ours, worked good.
We were there only one night so didn't use the facilities.
The sites were grass and gravel. - lovingit

New owner, very helpful and working hard to shape the park into what he likes. 50 amp, FHU, digital cable & WIFI included. WIFI is limited to one device per site, worked well. Numerous cable channels. Park is very clean and well maintained, a hidden gem off I-90. We had planned to spend 2 nights but added a 3rd since there is so much to do in this area and it is absolutely beautiful. This is an older park and maneuvering when the park is completely full could be difficult since space is limited for parking of tow(ed) vehicles. Some turns are tight but doable. We would definitely return if in this area again. - Bob & Stephanie

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

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

This park has full hook ups and is pretty close quarters with your neighbors. That said, it is in a neat little town and has a restaurant and microbrewery on site. The food and craft beer from the restaurant were very good. There is a "Melodrama" play performed in the old Wallace Theater a block away. Being walking distance from anything in Wallace is a major reason for staying at this park, which makes up for the lack of typical campground amenities like picnic tables and fire rings, and a bit more space between campers. There is a small creek that runs along side the campground, and runs under the building housing the brewpub and restaurant. All in all a nice place to stay for a few days while taking in all the neat little town of Wallace has to offer. - Stax

Stayed three nights and did most of the touristy things in town. Stream behind the campsite, but didn't spend much time hanging out. Although it was a tight squeeze, it was a quiet park. SInce you're in a canyon, shade isn't really an issue. - pamandtina
