“Good spot for car camping”

Reviewed Jun 30, 2018

Overall Rating

This was a great option for us as we were passing through on I-90. We drove a bit past the listed coordinates and found a secluded pull-off spot to park our car and camp. We did not have a trailer but there would have been room for one. The site was quiet but there was quite a bit of trash all around. It worked for us because we got th... more

“Beautiful Views...strangely busy road”

Reviewed Jun 02, 2017

Overall Rating

We camped here close to Memorial Day weekend. While the parking lot itself was empty of any campers, cars and trucks zoomed up and through the roads throughout the evening, including a few that stopped in front of their van to answer the call of nature. Once night settled in, things calmed down a bit. The campsite has several areas it ... more

“Beautiful National Forest Spot”

Reviewed Aug 15, 2016

Overall Rating

I really wanted to spend 2 weeks at this spot, but I can't put up with being swarmed by yellow jackets, so I bailed. I tried several of the available spots around the coordinates provided, and none worked for me, so I had to move on. I would love to return here at a time that it's not swarming with the hornets, though. The view from... more

“Great boondocking in beautiful Coeur d'Alene”

Reviewed Jul 09, 2016

Overall Rating

Right from I-90, exit 15, and 11 miles north, this spot is one of thousands that has amazing views, decent cell service, and cooler weather in the higher elevation. This particular site is exactly 1 mile from the Fernan Saddle, which is a giant lot that would be perfect for large groups to camp together. All of the forest service roads... more
