Close to Lake Coeur d'alene

Great little spot with close access to lake beaches and hiking trails. I stayed for 2 nights with my dog and it was very enjoyable. Creek doesn't seem to run most of the year but that was alright with me. There are a number of sites around a field and a few more further up in the campground and more secluded. I would stay here again!

5 stars for beauty

However , yellow jackets are swarming you. Nobody was stung when we were there and I find that amazing. Other than the yellow jackets the place is beautiful

Pretty and quiet

Nice quiet camp ground! The creek was dry when I visited unfortunately but the sites were nice and it wasn't overly crowded.

Nice campground with a very kind and friendly camp host!

We stayed in a big open central meadow that had a few sites in it, but the campground also had some sites that were more tucked back in the vegetation. There are pit toilets (very clean and smelled surprisingly good!) and a water pump nearby. The camp host was very friendly and accommodating. There was a bit of a wasp problem there (we were there in August), so not the best place to go if you’re afraid of or allergic to bees and wasps.

Good tent camping

Basic campground good for families great space from other campsites

Great location and nicely secluded

Stopped here on a road trip through the area. Camp is amazingly set up to get access to a lot of amazing views and hikes. Excellent camp spaces, lots of great tree coverage. Vault toilets…
