June 14 - 27, 2019 Beautiful park. Senior lifetime pass rate $10 which includes water, sewer and electric. Park has dump station. Winding roads to get there but so worth it! I will let the pictures tell the story… There are a lot of campsites that are uneven and can scrape if not careful.
Stayed a full 10 days. Had full hookups and the quality of all the facilities are great, modern and functional.
Pretty steep grades in and out of the area, but just take it easy on downhill and use your gears.
Great boat launch and fishing in the lake.
Great area. About 20 miles from US-12. Showers and other amenities available on site for a fee. Full bathrooms. Covered picnic tables which is nice and full hookup sites. No phone service. Dirt access road
This campground is run by the Army Corp of Engineers on the banks of the Dworshak reservoir. It has many amenities that you don't always find in a campground. It has a boat ramp directly into the reservoir. At the ramp you can find extra trashbags and a fish cleaning hut. I was really impressed with how clean the bathrooms were. You can also find a great playground, horseshoes, picnic shelters, and an open field for games. In the fall and summer you can pick wild plums and apples that grow alongside the road.
Dent Acres has a lot of campsites maintained by the US Army Corps of Engineers. There is lake access, a nice pavilion for large picnics. There is day use boat trailer parking and an upper lot of those camping overnight. A nice fish cleaning station, bathrooms, and abundant wildlife viewing. There is a nice group campsite just down the road that is part of this campground.
Lits of stuff to do next to the lake take your boat and go fishing skiing and much more
