“Good for an overnighter”

Overall Rating

Decent straightforward place for an overnight stay. Travel ground, semi flat. Train track close buy but not disruptive. Drop toilet. Large enough for big rigs.

“Decent overnight stop, not much else”

Reviewed Sep 01, 2018

Overall Rating

Pulled in on a Saturday afternoon, found five other RVs here. Four of those RVs were a big party here for the weekend or so. Apparently, a popular place for stargazing, I saw a guy here with a massive telescope. Very rocky parking lot, but big enough for 10-12 RVs and still room to maneuver. There are two trails from this lot, and both... more

Stayed here for a 1night stop over. Super easy access from I90. It has a very clean pit toilet and a large, rocky parking lot. We arrived late in the afternoon and have the place totally to ourselves. No shade, but beautiful rolling hills as landscape.

“A sweet stopover for the Night!”

Reviewed Jul 17, 2018

Overall Rating

We stayed here as a quick overnight on our way to somewhere else. Easy access from I90 in a very large well maintained gravel parking lot and a clean well stocked pit toilet. We were the first to arrive when later one other over nighter pulled in. Great spot and the stars were amazing!!

Stopped here for the night on our way from Idaho to Portland. Easy to access (slightly washboard road in), nice big gravel parking lot with pit toilet. Occasional train noise in the distance, but nothing bad. 2/4 Verizon LTE bars, 5mbps down.

“Good waypoint, nothing special”

Reviewed Jun 16, 2018

Overall Rating

You're basically camping in a gravel lot off a dirt/gravel road (one middle lot is off a paved road). There are hiking trails, but we just needed a free spot to sleep and this worked out just fine. The gravel is very loose, but we were able to get our SUV level - may be tough for an RV. Close to train tracks, so we heard a little train... more

“Great boondocking but beware of ticks!”

Reviewed May 05, 2018

Overall Rating

Great boondocking spot! Well maintained gravel road, vault toilet, tons of space to park. It was May when I visited and I had the entire place to myself. Super quiet at night - no highway noise. I have AT&T and did have cell reception. Trails right off of the parking lot are beautiful! Just beware of ticks. My dog and I did a quick wal... more

“Large Rig Accessible!”

We stayed here on our way up to Spokane and will definitely be back to stay again. This spot is located about 30 miles South of Spokane's downtown area so you are removed from the hustle and bustle however, only a 35 minute drive from town. During this time of the year (Late March) this is the best free spot in Spokane. There are a ... more

Stayed in early November. Camp area is just a large gravel parking lot shared by everyone. No designated camp sites or anything, just a spot to park. Vault toilet. No other services. Road in was in decent shape. Potholes and washboards in a few spots, but nothing too bad. Several miles on of trails leading out of camp, a strong Verizon... more

“Your choice of parking lot”

Reviewed Jul 27, 2017

Overall Rating

You basically have the choice of three gravel parking lots where you can camp. One on the southern site (where the coordinates will bring you), one north and one in the middle (at the trailhead to the waterfall). We ended up in the middle after some scouting around. Normally it is next to a through road, but the road was closed due to ... more
