Situated amongst firs, cedars and pines, Albeni Cove provides a rustic, but incredibly beautiful location for camping and recreation on the river.

Albeni Cove Campground offers 14 campsites, all with picnic tables and grills. An on-site dock, boat ramp and swimming beach provide easy access to the water.

Natural Features

Albeni Falls Dam on the Pend Oreille River, provides flood control, power production and countless recreational activities for visitors year-round.

Behind the dam, the Pend Oreille River stretches 65 miles through a glacial-carved valley that separates three mountain ranges.

Lake Pend Oreille is surrounded by scenic mountains and is one of the largest and deepest natural lakes in the western United States, plunging to depths of more than 1,200 ft. in some areas.

Nearby Attractions

The Albeni Falls Visitor Center features exhibits on the history of the dam and the natural features of the area. Tours of the dam are given daily during the summer.

Safe, pretty little spot.

Great last minute camping, not somewhere I want to return to every year. Perfect for an overnight. Site 12 is the best site and I highly recommend reserving that one. The campground hosts were extremely kind and helpful.

Childhood Memories

A small campsite ⛺ near Old Town, my family spent a weekend every summer ☀here when I was a child. We would get a first come site and spend our time fishing 🎣 and enjoying the campfire 🔥 Close to town it's easy to run to the store. While the campground is small, it's close to several forests 🌳 you can go hiking in, or go boating 🚣 and kayaking 🛶 on the river. We would also drive to Sandpoint to spend the day in town. Definitely a cute campground ⛺ to relax in!
