“Not our kind of place”

We stayed here in June 2022. Tons of mosquitoes. A bit tough to navigate through the campground. Sign says no vehicles/trailers over 45 ft recommended yet there are some sites that will fit a big rig. The state park site says nothing about size limitations. We have a 27ft Airstream so with TV we are about 50 ft. It was a bit tough to go around the loop and back into our site but we managed. The deal breaker for us is that we like to bike while camping - road or mountain and that is not possible here unless you want a 2 minute ride around the loop. Rte 5 which is the access to the campground is very busy and lots of logging trucks so not good for biking.

The other campground in Heyburn St Park (Hawleys Landing) is much much better - you can bike to the Coeur D’Alene trail or hike on multiple trails.

I would not stay here again.

We stayed the last week the campground was open for the season. It was pretty busy up until the last day. Other campers and campground hosts were very nice.

Not all the sites are full hookup, so be careful when choosing sites. One site had the hookups on the wrong side. I would have to say our site was one of the best in the campground. While, we did not have views of the water, the tenting area did over look the lake.

Apparently this was a good year for the wild rice harvest. Most of the harvesters were out in canoes. But there was one commercial operation that was using a very NOISY air boat to harvest with. Fortunately after a couple days it broke down and we were back to the peace and quiet during the day.

The campground is in the Heyburn State Park but is separate in location. Access from Plummer (from Northwest) and from I-90 near Wallace is via winding knuckle biter roads. About an hours drive from Coeur d' Elene and about the same from Wallace.

No WIFI, It took a booster to get an acceptable 4G coverage.
