If you enjoy seclusion and remoteness this is a wonderful place. Beautiful scenery with spectacular sunsets overlooking the lake from the camping areas. Not intended for big rigs 20 to 25-ft maximum. And only two spots out of the five will accommodate anything larger than a van. The other three spots are great for tents or van campers.
I been through the area a couple times on quick trips,I always wanted to return and explore the area without knowing much about it and the people were very helpful. Yes they told us how to get to Ross Creek Cedars and Kootenai falls (go early), absolutely stunning! I also found Libby Dam, we sat on the tailgate eating lunch and watched eagles soaring and fishing on the bottom side of the dam. The trail down to the river was great, the boys had a blast riding their bikes on it. The only downside was being right next to the highway but that also made it nice for getting out and exploring too.
Lovely campground with good trees and privacy between sites. We stayed here end August 2029 in site 111 in the snowberry loop. There are good hikes in the campground but they don’t all connect to each other. Nicest one that I did was the one along the lake- beautiful views.
Swung by here yesterday (late Dec) after calling to confirm hookups were still functional. There was only one hookup spot plowed, and it’s connectivity was not stable. We decided not to stay as our Tesla kept reporting electrical risk every 10 minutes. Not worth the risk to car camp when it’s 18 degrees.
Being from Kentucky I now rank myself as a lightweight after visiting Farragut State Park and realizing the weather people camp during in Idaho! Thimbleberry is a nice size group campground on the far side of Farragut SP. this is a basic area with room to spread out. Pit toilets , but no shower house.
If you want to visit the lake you will need to hike a minute or drive. There is a model plane field nearby and bird watching area. Bay view is nearby for laundry and most importantly COFFEE.
Farragut State Park, Idaho Lake Pend Oreille
I crossed the Montana / Idaho state line this morning and was pleasantly surprised at the AMAZING scenery . I’m from way over in Kentucky so maybe this is a best kept secret or it’s just not well advertised but NORTHERN IDAHO IS BEAUTIFUL!! I mean, someone says Idaho, I think potatoes/ farmland. So well played Idahoans! I stopped for an overnight at Farragut State Park. The staff was AMAZING! Friendly , informative and took the time to see if there were any cancellations or early departures in the crowded campgrounds. The campgrounds are well laid out in that there are many sites but they are situated in a way that still gives each site space for “stuff”.
Several areas to pick from. Group areas and campgrounds, shade and locality. Sites were very well maintained. Full hook up, Pit toilets and a few shower houses.
The general park map is lacking on the hiking trail venue. If you want to hike and in my opinion you do, see about getting a trail map or take a picture at one of the information stands. Even that map was not great, but useable. We took a stroll down through the woods and when we got to Lake Pend Oreille guess what?!! …. IT WAS AMAZING!! If you want a hike along the lake with easy to moderate difficulty 70 along Idlewilde Bay is excellent, it loops around by the parking lots and the shore. Plenty of spots for the dogs to get in and to swim. Once again there are trails coming and going and the trail markings are sometimes confusing but if you have a good sense of direction you’ll be fine.
There is a model airplane field, bird watching area, and areas to park and unload horses and llamas.
Bayview, ID is nearby with a laundromat , grocery , etc. On site there is a small museum with the history of the area , a Tree to Tree Adventure Park and of course water activities galore.
Farragut State Park in scenic Northern Idaho is a huge campground that is open year-round. It is like summer camp for families and truly has something for everyone; a HUGE and amazing obstacle course/tree park, disc golf, great trails for hiking, biking, and horseback riding. There is a beautiful lake for water sports and plenty of activities to do in the winter. Give yourself a week to enjoy this treasure!
A quiet gem back in the woods with a lake perfect for kayaking or flyfishing. No motor boats and just a single trail that is a mile long, it has several generous sized campsites and a porta potty available. It does NOT have running water, but you can always scoot down to South Skookum lake to get water if needed.
