Site was adequate and utilities all good. The park appears neglected. Looks like it might have been quite nice at one time. Probably would not return. We camped at Blue Lake RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

A really nice little park in a wooded setting. Owners were very helpful. Large pull through sites with lots of room. Quite a little bit of train noise during the night, but we managed to sleep through most of the whistles. When we got the rig set up for the night the owner came by and said that the "happy hour" wine and micro beer bar was about to open on the balcony overlooking the lake. We had a great time relaxing, having a glass of wine and visiting with other RVers. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Blue Lake RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed for 3 nights. Owners are incredibly friendly and helpful. The lake is so peaceful. Not big, and no walk-in access but there is dock to jump off of, paddle boats, kayaks to rent.

Sites are large and easy to get into. The owners have a wine bar they operate at night. Excellent value. Would make this a destination park for sure. We camped at Blue Lake RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

All interior roads gravel. Amenities vary by site, we were in a full hook up site and all utilities worked well. The site required a minimum of leveling, Some sites have small grass areas, fire pits and picnic tables, They have nice laundry facilities and things seem to be well maintained. They have a Wine Bar open 6-9 pm with a selection of northwest wines and beers. Overall the area was quiet but there is some train noise. Some of the wooded sites would not have an open sky view for a dish, Internet access was a bit spasmodic. Pay careful attention to the turn off from US95!! Coming from the south it is extremely sharp and not extremely wide with a railroad crossing at the bottom. Check their website so you can use the mile markers to get ready to turn. Ice and propane available in the park other than that you need to purchase things you need in Bonner's Ferry or Sandpoint. We would stay here again. We camped at Blue Lake RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Bonners Ferry has gas and groceries. Kootenai River Brewing company has nice beers and good pub grub The Kootenai Nat Wildlife Refuge west of town offers good bird viewing. There is a 5 mi loop that can be driven or biked. Nice small farmers market in downtown on Saturdays.

I perused the internet for a park. Blue Lake RV Resort was a stab in the dark that turned out to be an excellent choice. The sites are very roomy and graveled. The upper "A" section overlooks the lake. The owners were extremely concerned that we were comfortable and were willing to help with anything we needed. Blue Lake RV is located conveniently just south of Bonner's Ferry and is a hidden gem in the forest. Reasonably priced for what is offered. We would definitely stay there again. We camped at Blue Lake RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Bonner's Ferry is about seven miles away and is a very interesting town in which to spend a day, quite historical. Good food and good beer at the Kootenay River brewery. The Mexican restaurant, Mi Pueblo, serves superior dishes and is highly popular with the locals. Two super markets in town and several gas stations.

We camped here for a week in November for hunting in the area. Great park, clean restrooms and very helpful staff. The train went by five or six times our first night and only twice each night after. Will come back next summer for sure. We camped at Blue Lake RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Well-located if you want to take day trips up into Canada and down to Sandpoint, Ponderay and Silverwood Park. Relatively hard to get into coming from the south, as you need to execute pretty much a hairpin turn as you get off of busy Hwy. 95 (we were able to do it with our 37' motorhome pulling a car, but needed to swing wide to the right first). Our biggest issue was the nearby train track. Constant (as in all night long) huge freight trains blowing the whistle at all hours like there was no tomorrow! It's not as much Blue Lake Resort as Blues Brothers Resort (think of the scene where Jake and Elroy are in the Chicago apartment right next to the "L" train that went by every 5 seconds). If that doesn't keep you awake, then the nearby field of mooing cows or the nearby sawmill certainly will. Anyway, if you are hard of hearing, it won't be an issue, but we didn't get a good night sleep the entire time we were there. Our second issue was Wi-Fi. The resort must be connected to the Internet with a shared 300 baud tin can - darn near useless, and it logged you off every hour or so whether you were using it or not. For the price ($429 for two weeks), it was more expensive than other, much-better parks that we have stayed at. We camped at Blue Lake RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for 5 nights. Our site was the last one on the row of full hookup sites and closest to the highway. Between our rig and highway was a set of train tracks. Both created quite a lot of noise, day and night. Also, what we didn't know was that a small, unused space next to us was the campground's designated dump station. So several times during the morning other campers would park next to us and dump their tanks. UGH! Noise is always a factor for us when we travel. Can you get a good night's sleep here? We didn't and will not stay here again. We camped at Blue Lake RV Resort in a Motorhome.

$35.75/night was for a pull-through full hookup level gravel site in the full sun (trees have been planted which will grow to provide shade) with a fire ring and picnic table. There are sites with full shade available. The owners and their staff are VERY accommodating, friendly, and helpful—they forwarded mail for us without batting an eyelash and gave us tips for local hiking trails and scenic drives. They have many activities in the campground—from swimming in the lake, lounging on the decks, playing chess on an 8’ x 8’ patio block board, swings, horseshoes, etc. to an evening wine bar for the adults. There are miles of walking/hiking/bike trials nearby in the national and state forests as well as in nearby Bonner’s Ferry and Naples. The International Selkirk Loop scenic drive in ID, WA, and British Columbia, Canada is indeed very scenic. There are railroad tracks nearest the pull-through full sun sites and when they blow their whistles at 2 AM it can wake the dead but we love trains and their noises so they were not a problem for us. The railroad tracks that pass on the other side of the campground are much further away and are not annoying at all. Free Wi-Fi is included in the rate and it worked well. AT&T and Verizon cell service is great. We received 13 over-the-air digital TV stations. We camped at Blue Lake RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Park sits back from main road about 5-6 hundred yards. Northbound entry to park is tight but doable. Just North of park entry is a wide space for an easy turn around. Southbound entry easy. Entry is the only drawback to a park that was a pleasant surprise. Owners have put a lot of work into their facility and it shows. The lake is swimmable and abounds with turtles near the bank. Laundry was small, only two washers and dryers but not crowded. As full-timers we would stop here again when in the area. We camped at Blue Lake RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This was just a one night stop along the way for us. Nice park, sites were plenty wide and tidy. Reasonably close to the highway, but not much noise at all. I'm not sure there are a lot of local attractions that would beckon a long stay, but a great place to stay en route. We camped at Blue Lake RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Great place. Although we only stayed overnight it would be great to stay and play. Great access from the highway, easy to get to town for shopping. This is not your typical parking lot side by side RV resort. It is more like a county park with trees, grass, a lake open space and the sites have ample room. The owner is friendly and went the extra mile to make sure everything is OK. Every service worked great, including Wi-Fi from the rig. One of the best places we have ever stayed.

This is not a “resort”. It would pass as a nice state type “park” as it is clean, but roads are gravel, steep, and narrow, and the amenities are minimal. We were not happy that we booked a 50 amp full hook up for our 43' big rig, and after driving the whole day, found out that we only had 30 amp and water. And the site was level only if you were under 20’. The front desk was apologetic and nice to help us find something more appropriate, but the misunderstanding could have been side-stepped had the person that took the reservation actually paid attention to what we said and what we repeated back to them before we ended the call. I am not sure I would refer this place to friends and family unless they were local and could visit first. We camped at Blue Lake RV Resort in a Motorhome.

While this park is a bit rough around the edges we have stayed there before and would do so again. The roads and sites are dirt or gravel. Our site required a minimum of leveling. The premium sites all have small grassy areas. The shade present varies widely between sites. As mentioned it is not too far from the railroad and there is some rail noise, but not enough to bother us. Some of the sites are a bit close together if you have jerks for neighbors. Most kids seemed to be having a lot of fun. The presence of a deep lake and the railroad requires that people keep a good eye on their children. Had a bit of a problem getting WiFi inside the trailer, but it worked well sitting at the picnic table. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They have a nice, small laundry. We camped at Blue Lake RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Our site was up on the hill & we were pretty much alone, so that was nice. We were able to get a satellite signal there but I'm pretty sure you wouldn't in the treed area. If you don't like the sound of trains, don't stay here. The tracks literally run on the property & start at 4:00 AM. There is an off leash area for dogs but it wasn't usable. It is an old vineyard strewn with barbed wire & overgrown grass. The laundry is so-so on cleanliness and one of the dryers barely put out any heat. The owners are very friendly and helpful, and the park is within an hour of the Canadian border. We camped at Blue Lake RV Resort in a Motorhome.
