Fyi... No longer a campsite here. A new logging road now goes right thru the site.
There are other sites in the area, but be prepared to have alot of quad/4 wheeler traffic running around.

We stumbled upon this place while driving through the forest. It is right off the main forest road and tucked behind some trees. Plenty of space for even a big rig. Ours is a 32 ft and we had so much room. We loved how our dogs could roam off leash and we had so many roads to explore on. There is some road noise since it's close to the road but it wasn't an issue for us. We didn't have any att service but we drove about 5 minutes down the road and had service. It was about 40 mins from downtown coeur d'alene. One downside is we didn't get any solar power here, but it was worth it for the cooler temps. We dumped and filled up at KC rv dump station.
