3 Parks near Sandpoint, Idaho
Jul 2015 - $25.00
This is actually a very pleasant campground at the fairground complex. The sites vary, but ours, #12 was very spacious with a big, lush green lawn. Great for the pup. The sites have electric and water and there is a dump station. The shower rooms were spacious and clean. Didn't use it, so can't comment on it further. The only drawback, and for me it is a BIG one, is the very active railroad nearby with train whistles blowing all night. Made for a very sleepless night for me. If you are a heavy sleeper, though, this makes for a nice overnight stop or multiple nights if you need to be in the area. Also, you need to pay the host. If they are not there, there is a drop box at a bulletin board kiosk which isn't real obvious. I didn't care for the idea a dropping $25 cash in the box with no receipt, so I waited until the host came around and got a receipt from her. - Pdxjoanne

This is a nice fairground about 4 miles north of Sandpoint. From Boyer Street (not Boyer Avenue) take the third driveway on the left. The entrance road starts as a good dirt road that quickly becomes paved.
All of the interior roads and sites are on asphalt. The length of each site varies - ranging from 40 to 55 feet. Check the fairgrounds web site for this information.
The electrical pedestal is on the correct side containing 20/30/50 amp service. The electrical voltage was good - hovering about 122 volts. The water spigot is shared between two sites. Some sites will require very long hoses to reach the spigot. The dump station is located on Boyer Road just outside the fairgrounds fence (first driveway on the right as you leave the campground). Each sites had a picnic table. There was also a gazebo with 8 picnic tables and a couple of BBQ stands.
There are 3 active railroads running through and around the town. There is no way to avoid the noise from their whistles. Some nights they seem louder than other nights.
Most of the sites will require leveling. We selected a different site than we were assigned for this reason. Half of the sites are positioned the incorrect way thus backing in on the blind side. There were three showers in the back of the bathhouse. The showers and bathrooms were clean. The camp host was occasionally on duty.
The fairgrounds did not have Wi-Fi but Verizon air card and cell phone worked well here.
We stayed at this fairground with a 32 foot rig. We would come back to this campground if we were in the area. - adsaxs

The sites are level and blacktopped with electric and water. Mature trees provide shade and it's a very nice setting. Finding the office to register and pay was a bit strange; had to ask the camp host where they were located. A sign would be helpful. Also, the entry was very unlevel with a strange dip that really rocked the RV coming in. We were able to use the free Internet connection which was a nice surprise. We stayed one night while on the road. - Da Keeffes

There were only two parks open when we visited Sandpoint and this one was within walking distance to everything we needed, including a cool little park for our kids and a beach. They didnt have laundry but there is a laundromat down the road that was very cheap with very fast machines. The pros to this place were that we had access to the pool, jacuzzi and showers in the hotel (the rv's basically park across the street in a lot with picnic tables. It's back in rather than pull through but was still pretty easy) The con was really that the trains ran all night and were ridiculously loud. My son who loves trains loved it, but my nearly two year old daughter hardly slept and spent most of the night yelling at them to stop. I would have probably slept through them with earplugs just fine but am quite attuned to my kids in my sleep. The town itself is lovely... I cannot express how lovely, and I would go out of my way to visit again. Beautiful, sweet people and beautiful town. The staff at the hotel were very lovely as well. - MrsMay

We were very disappointed with this RV park. The train traffic was deafening and never ending. Got hardly any sleep. Also we felt that for $45 the services were poor-no washrooms, no cable, no Wi-Fi and spaces were very tight. On the plus side it was close to town and walking trails. I would not recommend this RV park. - gmcdo

It's a place to stay, we stayed here because it's the first place we found and we were tired. The trains are awful and the end of our R.V. wasn't more than 40 ft. from the track. Dirt and gravel roads and spaces. The plus side easy walk to town and the beach, nice walking path along the beach. - Bill&Helen

The rate reflects the discount with Golden Age pass. The campground was full but not chaotic. The showers did not work so that was a big black mark against the park, as they were not making any attempt to fix them. My site 8 was near the restroom and often the walking path for those needing to use the facility. I would suggest the park make a path very apparent for access to the bathroom so the site can be avoided. Kids rode their bicycles through, adults walked through and I thought it showed a lack of campground etiquette as well. I would stay again - in a different site. - obxblond

This is a nice park in a great location. The town is noted for being a walking tow, with very friendly people and some great places to eat. Everything at the park was neat and in order and the management seem to care about the park. They have a boat ramp and a dock, which is ideal for fishing. - RalphOnTheRoad

Very shady sites with trails to a nice beach on banks of Pend Oreille. Camp staff were very helpful and kept everything in great shape. There were a lot of kids because of the beach, so could be noisy, but everything calmed down at night and the gates were locked. Close to Sandpoint and good base to explore the Idaho panhandle. - shepherdmoon
