“Nice sites along beautiful river”

Reviewed Dec 20, 2017

Overall Rating

My wife and I have been campground hosts for 5 - 6 weeks the past two summers. The campground is our favorite in the area. The sites are roomy, private, and most are well shaded. The Moyie River runs along the backside of the campground - it is fast, cold, clean, and many are successful fishing for trout. It is also used for rafting during the early part of the season and many rafters camp at the site when the water is high. About half of the sites are along the river. Most of the remainder are up a bench - while not on the river, these are the largest and most private sites in the campground. The campground has modern outhouses that do not smell and are easy to keep clean. There is water at several spigots scattered throughout the campground. There is no electricity, dump station, or trash removal (pack it in, pack it out). Because there are campground hosts from late May to September, the campground is kept clean and neat. There is a nature trail that runs from the lower part of the campground up to a ridge with a scenic overlook of the river below. We have seen moose, turkeys, deer, eagles, and the occasional bear (but there are no "camp bears"). There are bear boxes in several of the campsites and otherwise it is strongly recommended that campers keep their food in either a hardside camper or within their vehicle (so we don't get camp bears). Access is via Meadow Creek road which is twisty, but mostly paved but gravel about 2 miles from the campground. Bonners Ferry is about a 30 minute drive and has all supplies and services. There are many many fishing, hiking, exploring, and other recreation opportunities in the area. The only downside I know is a train track about a half a mile from the campsite with 2 - 3 trains daily.
