“Free Beautiful Camping Right on Lake Pend Oreille”

Reviewed Sep 30, 2018

Overall Rating

This camping area is beautiful and perfect for anyone who uses solar and loves to fish when they camp. If you're looking for shade though this is not the spot for you. There is a beautiful boat launch ramp with a dock when you first pull in, and to get to the smaller camping area and the larger camping area you go to the small road on the west side of the parking lot. You cannot get to the camping areas directly from Driftwood Yard Road, you have to go through the parking lot.

The small camping area is where we camped, there are 3 fire rings there, and it was beautiful being right on the lake there. The large camping area is basically just a large parking lot but there are also 3 fire rings there too.

The camping limit here is 3 nights, perfect for an extended wishing weekend, but there is no trash collection so pack out what you pack in. There is a port-a-potty in the parking lot next to the boat launch ramp if you need it.

Even though ID-200 is only a half mile away, you can't really hear it, but trains do go by occasionally. We hate trains so this bothered us, but they really aren't that loud.

We loved camping here, and we will be back because we didn't do nearly everything we wanted to with such a short camping limit. Note that as of the date I'm posting this review Google Satellite Map is not current, so I have included an aerial view of the area in my submitted pictures.
