At the start of this season 15 of the 39 sites were repaved and remodeled. We stayed in site 202, which is one of the 15 remodeled and paved sites. The other 24 sites are unpaved sites on an unpaved loop adjacent to the new paved loop with 15 sites. We we able to fit our 40 foot fifth-wheel and tow vehicle into site 202 on the paved loop. I think we would fit into about 5 or 6 of the paved sites. We would not enter the unpaved loop given our length. Only some of the 15 paved sites have sewer connection. All of the paved sites have 50 amp and water. The main entrance to the campground has a sign warning that maximum length is 45 feet. We parked there, where we could still turnaround easily and walked ahead to check out the paved sites. The paved loop has one tight turn, but total length over 50 feet should be able to make the turn. In between where we parked and the paved loop is a short section of road that is unpaved. This short section of unpaved road has a swale. We had no problem with the short unpaved, uphill section but the camp hosts said that others have had issues on the uphill side. Having issued all of these warnings, we enjoyed this wooded campground. The sites are new and nice as is the setting. We hiked about 10 minutes down to the nearby lake. The lake is crossed by a railroad bridge that also has a fun tunnel immediately before the water. Restrooms were remodeled, clean and nice. This campground is a bit of trouble to access but is a worth the effort once you get situated. If you are long, I would definitely call ahead to make sure that one of the larger paved sites is expected to be available upon your arrival. All of the sites in this campground are first come, first served. We camped at Heyburn State Park - Benewah Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Clean park, friendly personnel, nice interpretive center, miles and miles of bike trails. The only reason why rating is not excellent is because the highway noise is close. You can't see it, but you sure know it is there. Noise does subside in the evenings. The bathrooms were clean but a bit run down. Beautiful area. There were a few big rigs here but the turning on some corners was probably a bit tricky. Only a few sites have sewer so be sure that is specified on your reservation. We expected this park to be a bit larger knowing that it was remodeled a couple years ago. The first State Park in Idaho. We camped at Heyburn State Park - Benewah Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This is the second time we have camped here in the past two years and really enjoy this campground. The best part is its easy access to The Trail of the Couer d' Alenes bike trail. The trail is completely paved, flat, and goes right along the edge of Lake Couer d' Alene before heading east up into the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. The campground is neatly kept, sites are all in the woods with nice shade. Both pull-through and back-in sites available, but very large rigs would have problems negotiating the narrow roads. We camped at Heyburn State Park - Benewah Campground in a Travel Trailer.

The park is very nice, however, the campground is not up to standard. The thirty amp electrical service is weak at best, the water pressure is low, and the sewer hookups are broken. There is not a level site in the place and it is very tight all around. Only the most skilled should attempt to get in here. We used site 203 because it was the most level and easy to escape from. The old facilities are just that old and hard to keep clean. The access road is paved, but it is a pot holed mess. We camped at Heyburn State Park - Benewah Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
