“Nice campground But trains going by constant”

Reviewed Apr 26, 2019

Overall Rating

Nice campground beautiful setting
No picnic tables
Clean out houses
Trains are constantly going by day and night. Very loud when passing campground. Will wake you up often.
Few sites with stuff set up on them, but nobody there the entire time we were there. I dislike this when people claim sites for long periods of time and aren’t even there.

“Excellent dispersed camping area with plenty of room”

Reviewed Oct 03, 2018

Overall Rating

This area is on a bend of the Clark Fork river just upstream of the Cascade Campground, and just downstream of the overpass where the railroad crosses the highway. There are signs on the highway just before the turnoff, but slow down or you'll miss it. The access road is good and there are 2 clean vault toilets. There are at least a dozen informal sites, including several that could be used for 2 or 3 RV's. We used a 20' trailer, but saw a larger one in another site. Some leveling was required at our site. There are a number of fire pits, some built by the USFS and some good user-built ones. The sites are well-separated, with timber between. All have river access, and some overlook the water. There was just one picnic table, and the first site.

Everywhere along this corridor, there will be some highway and railroad noise. This area is as far from the highway as any of them, but fortunately the railroad is on the other side of the river. A number of trains come through each day, and make the expected noise, but you don't feel like they're coming right through your camp. Also, since there are no crossings nearby, the trains don't blow their whistles there.

Quinn's hot springs is just 5 minutes down the road, with a good tavern and restaurant. If you're going there, suggest you check their website. It's a popular destination--reservations are recommended for dinner and for soaking.

We got very spotty Verizon coverage there--enough to check texts.
