Spent 2 weeks at Farragut SP last summer while visiting our grandkids in Spokane, WA. This is a beautiful park, with lots of hiking, fishing and boating on Lake Pend Oreille. It was a navy training base during WW2, so there is also some history. The campground is large, but some sites are a little tight. We needed help getting our 20’ travel trailer into the spot we had. Water and electric only, no sewer. Bathroom and shower house was clean and well kept. We saw lots of blue birds and deer during our visit. There is a large frisbee golf course, too.
Farragut state park has many campgrounds available to fit every campers style. Tent camping, RV camping, cabin rentals, even camping with your horses! Whatever your style there is a campground here for you. Water and bathrooms at every campsite make it comfortable, the views and countless trails to hike make it breathtaking, and the list of things located in the park make it the perfect vacation site! Peaceful lake views, disc golf, tree to tree adventure course, swimming area, fishing, museums, and horse trails are a few of the things to do while camping in this amazing state park. Even with all these events located here, you'll find peaceful serenity and a true camping feel for the whole family.
A huge park 🏞you will never run out of space to explore here. My family camped here many times throughout my childhood. Close to Silverwood Theme Park 🎡you can spend the day playing on rides 🎢 and the night sitting around the campfire 🔥I remember one day we saw a mother bear 🐻and her cubs as we were picnicking in the day area. Definitely the best of both worlds.
Farragut camping has been a family favorite. The spacious campsites, closeness to the lake, and closeness to the grocery store (when needed) is wonderful.
We stayed here for one night on July 25, 2018.
This is one huge park. I wanted to stay here as my father went through Naval basic training here in 1942. Since then the base has been turned into a college and then into a state park. A nice museum is located here with the history of the naval training base.
Every site is immaculately maintained with even the gravel being raked between visitors. There are hot showers (in private rooms), visitor center, swimming, boating, fishing, and a host of other activities. There are several disc golf courses and the visitor center sells Frisbee/discs for that purpose.
The sites have water and electric hookups and the park has multiple dump stations throughout.
This campground has it all! Private beach, biking trails, hiking trails, disc golf course, group sites, and private sites. Very relaxing, quiet place! Definitely going back
Went here on a complete whim during peak seasons in the summer and still had spots remaining to pitch a tent. The park itself is massive and plenty of fun options from swimming in Lake Pend O’ Reille to disc golf there at the course in the park. Bathrooms were clean, water was abundant and if you wanted to grab food/beer Bayview is only a few minutes away. Stayed at Whitetail campground at $27 a night for no hookups
Clean campsites, and beautiful scenery. However the campsites don’t offer a lot of privacy which can lead to loud neighbors and not a lot of sleep.
I've camped at every group camp site at Farragut with a group of 50+ women mountain bikers. Farragut State Park does group camping the best. My favorite group camps are Thimbleberry (horse friendly) and Locust Grove (lake views). But there are 7 group camps to choose from. Facilities vary, but all have flush toilets Camping areas are wooded Boreal Forest areas. Park amenities include lake access, miles of hiking, horse and mountain bike trails, a frisbee golf course and a new tree to tree ropes course ($$). There are mountain goats viewable by binoculars across the lake. The little town of Bayview is five minutes away if you get tired of camp cooking and want to sit down and have a meal served to you.
Beautiful campsite with lots of shade! There are many activities for the whole family including hiking, biking and disc golf. We stayed on a large plot with a nice level area to set up a tent. There are nice shower and bathroom facilities available also. Our site included a large picnic table and firepit with built in grill top. The water was close but it is a steep grade down and back out of the water which made bringing a kayak or SUP difficult. There is easy access to both Silverwood and Coeur D'Alene Idaho outside the campground. Apparently there is a former U.S. Naval brig turned museum at the park as well. We did not visit on this occasion but will definitely try it out on our next trip!
