Our visit to Ravenwood was good. We forgot that we did not have a full hookup, so a daily run to the dump station with the gray water tote was part of the routine. They do offer gray water pumpouts (no black water) for a fee, but we opted for the tote method. They do not offer bathrooms or showers (which is strange given that the majority of sites do not have sewer) other than the porta potty (yuck) and a bathroom in the office that is intended for the office workers, not the guests. They have a nice dog park and pool. The sites were large and somewhat roomy. Verizon signal was good. They do not offer recycling :-( The RV park is right down the road from the Silverwood theme park, and they offer a free shuttle a few times a day to and from the park. We opted for the flexibility and drove ourself (and paid for parking). This park is much quieter (away from the highway noise) than the Silverwood RV park at the theme park. Given the lack of sewer and proximity to the theme park, a majority of guests appear to be families on vacation. We would stay here again, at a full hookup site (more expensive I bet). - VagabondLove

Just wrapped up a 1-week stay at Ravenwood while visiting friends in the area. Our first stay in this park. We were in one of their full hookup pull-thru spots. They are 70' long, so lots of room. Site surface is gravel. Grass between sites. Utilities were modern and worked well. Good satellite access. We were toward the back of the park and wifi basically didn't work at all. We used our own hotspot. No park laundry, restrooms, or showers. We went into Hayden to do laundry. They do have a pool. Park roads paved. 3/4 of spaces are W/E only - few with full hookups. Park is within 1 mile of Silverwood amusement park, so it is full of families and kids. Nice fenced dog run. Staff was friendly and efficient. We would return when in the area. - William Metcalf

This is a very clean, organized park. The entrance is large and wide making it extremely easy to enter and exit. Grass is well maintained. The pool is very small and it was too cold to use. They were very accommodating to receiving our mail and returning a package for us that did not arrive before our departure. Would definitely stay again. - FT Travelers3

Some of the others have complained about this park. This RV park is for convenience to come and go from the park itself, and go back to your trailer. They've made some improvements lately. It has wide enough sites to park big rigs in. No extras here but it serves it's intended purpose. It's perfect if you're here to go to Silverwood and want to be able to come back for lunch or to cool off in your trailer's AC. - Scott S

This campground is basically here to use Silverwood(theme park). It is a weekend warrior get away to utilize the theme park. The amenities here is basically the theme park we did have full hookups 30 amp, water, sewer. The rules that they give you to abide by or basically nonexistent for the people that camp inside the park. I seen fire rings with wood being burned that's a no-no. I seen up to four vehicles parked in a space with at least 15 to 20 people that's a no-no. I'm not sure what the campground host responsibility is, but from what I could tell they were nonexistent. Look if your young family you want to go to the theme park you will love this place kids running everywhere you can throw rocks, football baseball whatever you want and not have to worry about hitting or not hitting something, now if you're used to rules and people abiding by rules and some type of orderly conduct and parking don't come here, you will be disappointed. We were here for a two day event at the theme park so we made the best of it but I will probably not come back. - monaco cruiser

The only reason to stay here is to do silver wood and for that it works great! Road noise, check. No WIFI, check. As close as you can get to silverwood without staying in the park, check. Friendly staff and a discount to the park. It is what is and if your not too picky it serves the purpose well. - Fishmon

This is a beautiful park in gorgeous northern Idaho. There are lots of hiking and biking trails in the park with amazing views of Lake Pend O'Rielle. We stayed in the Waldron campground in site 165 with a 43 ft. 5th wheel. There was plenty of room on the roads coming into the site and our site was spacious with a good amount of privacy. It's about 30 minutes to Coeur d'Alene and also to Sandpoint, both were wonderful to visit. The only problem for us at the campground was lack of cell coverage. We are non-retired fulltimers and need internet to work. We have hot spot devices for Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile and usually at least one of those works, but they did not work at this park except for sometimes in the middle of the night or early morning. Verizon & AT&T both looked like they should have service with 3 or 4 bars, but they just didn't work at all or were painfully slow. We ended up having to leave the campground each day and find places where we could connect and work. Just 4 miles down the road in the town of Athol all 3 cell services worked fine. So we would probably not stay here again unless we could come back at a time when we don't need to work. The park really is awesome except for the lack of cell coverage. - Love2Camp777

A very nice state park, all facilities were clean, sites were large and staff friendly. We stayed there twice once on our way to our destination and again on our way home. Will definitely stay there again. - mamestra

This is a beautiful park with many camping options. We stayed in Gilmore Campground, which has full hook-ups. This area opened in late 2018, so hook-ups are all brand new. Sites are angled in a way that provide a lot of privacy. There is a Super 1 Foods 1 - 2 miles up the road. Easy drive to Sandpoint, Sagle, Coeur d'Alene. Surrounded by Lake Pend Oreille. - Diane

Lakeland RV park is a simple 25 space park that is only open 6 months of the year. Our drive thru spot was close to the next spot, but enough for the awning and did not feel crowded. There are a few long term units, but since they can't stay year round, the spots are kept pretty clean.
The biggest down side for us at this park was a lack of Cell service (AT&T). We were able to install our WiFi extender at the patio behind the bathroom's and extend WiFi access to our space from the camp office. We will return again if in this area. - overrun

This is a simple RV park property - nothing fancy, but just what you need in Bayview. Locally owned and operated for many many years. There are maybe 25-30 spots here, all with full hook-ups, it seems. There is a central covered patio area with microwave, fridge, etc. that can be used for small group gatherings. I went into the ladies' restroom shower but didn't use it. It seemed to be well-kept, but it is old.
We were in the center section of pull-through spots, #20. Just perfect for our needs.
It's about a mile walk to downtown Bayview. They open in March or April, weather depending, and close for the season in mid-October. We were there in mid-September. There were maybe 6 other RVers there.
We were treated to some wildlife-viewing there - Deer, wild turkeys, squirrels - and heard an owl or two. - BLT2015

If you're in the Couer d' Alene area you may want to consider this RV park in Bayview. It's only about 10 miles from the amusement park and about a half hour to Couer d' Alene. This is a good park to get away from cell phones and internet. Verizon cell or MiFi did not work, however if you walked down by the lake the cell worked: 2 bars of g3. The park owner is helpful and friendly and it's $35 a night cash or check only. We were here in a 36' mh and had lots of room to move into our space. Nice grass between spots with picnic table, sites were gravel and the park was black top-ish on the roads. Sites with nice shade are available. The bathrooms and showers are clean and pretty new. This is an RV park and the view you have is the unit parked on either side but had nice views out the front and back. Tent camping is available. They do have internet however I found it difficult to get on, but when it was up it was pretty fast. The cable TV is hooked the park's antenna and only gets 3 local channels. We spent 2 nights here. One interesting fact: Lake Pend Oreille US Navy Acoustic Research Detachment is located in Bayview, Idaho. These folks make our submarines very, very quiet. I don't think they give tours. - pumper9x9

We really enjoyed our stay here! We tied up our boat to the lakeside bulkhead right in front of our motor home making it secure and easily accessible. The kids had a blast fishing, swimming and feeding the ducks in the lake. Parking was convenient. The public bathrooms/showers were very close by. They even had lockers! The staff was friendly. We'll definitely stay here again. - User3422

Waterfront sites are 30Amp and not good swimming sites. Only 5 or 6 shaded sites. Parking area (sites) is an open area surrounded by city streets, thus no privacy or security. - John R

This facility is not a RV Park; it is a rundown residential area with a few open spaces for mobile homes or RVs. The RV space I reserved was a pull-off on the side of a gravel road; “scenically” located between a rusty mobile home and a dirty and old fifth wheel. Haphazardly wired electrical pedestal with incorrectly sized circuit breaker for 50 amp service. Only possible means of egress was backing out the way you drove in (several hundred feet).
The website for this park describes the views as “majestic”, which is embellishment at best and deliberate misrepresentation at worst.
Website requires full payment in advance and is stated as non-refundable. After seeing this facility in person, I did not stay, and I successfully disputed the credit card charge for the non refundable deposit. - Aircats

The view of the lake and surrounding area was fantastic from our RV site. We loved the hillside site. It had just the right amount of privacy and generous shade. The staff was very friendly. And the location was great - you're just 10 minutes from Silverwood Theme Park and 1/8 mile to Farragut State Park. We'd definitely stay here again! - User3422

This was a nice little find for my scout troop to camp while visiting Silverwood. It was a quick drive to both the park (7mi.) and into Hayden and CDA for supplies. It's not like a typical RV park with manicured lawns. Think of it more like a Forest Service campground but with full hookups. The sites were generously sized with lots of vegetation between. There are no fire rings however so be prepared for that. The driveway and pads are gravel but level enough for stabilizers to balance it out. It's super secluded and pretty quiet. At times you can hear the highway and the occasional train, but never from inside the trailer. The bathrooms were a little run down but clean and we were told by the owner that they were planning to remodel them this year. Garbage service was provided as well as 30amp electric, potable water, and sewer at each site. There are also two pull throughs for larger rigs. The owner was very accommodating and exceptionally nice. We were even allowed to set up a tent. Something no other park would allow. This is definitely a gem and will plan to stay again in the future. - Jenrenee

Very friendly owner who isn't shy to let you know he is a good Christian man. Park is off the main highway 1/2 mile paved and 1/4 mile good gravel packed road. Has full hook up sites however isn't designated an RV park but more of a campground. This means you can dump your holding tanks at your site sewer connection but you cannot keep it connected during your entire stay. Wasn't much inconvenience for us as we have 4-5 day dry camping ability. Convenient to the city 10 miles away (south) and approx. six miles to Farragut State Park. Very quiet at night. A few trains but mostly noticed them during the day. As noted by other reviewers, the biggest noise comes from the machine shop next door where they like to drop the bucket on the front end loader several times a day. This park accepts cash only so come prepared. We enjoyed our stay and would consider staying again when in the area. - FulltimerFun

The actual name is Cedar Grove Dude Ranch Campground. I believe it is primarily for the people who are going to the dude ranch, as there is no signage except when you get to the main gate and you have to know about this campground and call for directions to be able to find it. There are only two pull throughs and the only way we could pull into them was to put the picnic table on the wrong side of the coach. The sites are narrow, with the slides out we were barely able to walk around the coach. The sites are separated by trees giving some privacy. We thought the price was high for what we got. No WiFi or sat TV reception. Would not camp here again. - cccnnnsss

We have stayed here many times in the past. Level gravel sites and ample grass & shade trees between all sites. Near the highway and occasional train noise, but neither have ever bothered us. Located at a Mobil gas station with Diesel and Propane. RV registration can be slow due to the Gas station, but they do try hard to process you quickly. Good Pet walking area around perimeter of Park and a nice paved walking path along the highway. Good Wi-Fi; nice variety of Antenna only TV channels, including "MeTV". We love this site as it has a very open grassy area on our entry side; Sites 14 & 8 are good too. - mandrgames

The Mobile station / liquor & grocery mart was also the Alpine RV Park office. People who serve there were very nice. The park is hidden behind the store. The lawns between our site and the neighbors were 35 feet on one side and 47 feet on the other. They all looked like that. Our space was 80 feet long, (Yes, I measured!) so we could unhook our 42 foot fifth-wheel and still have plenty of room for our pickup. Beautiful, large trees were everywhere and we were pretty much surrounded by forest. The "Pet Area" was the forest. Every site has a fire pit, metal picnic table, and a trash can which is emptied every day. The small laundry room had one washer and dryer, which were quite old. Needed a paint job. The shower/restroom door needs painting desperately, but the room and showers were clean inside. Gravel roads were easy to drive and turn on. The hwy. 95 traffic noise didn't bother us but the train blew its whistle pretty loudly from the other side of hwy. 95. (We liked it anyway.) We hope to stay there often! - Papa Larry

Good things: close to Coeur d’Alene, relatively inexpensive, reasonably sized sites for big rigs. Bad things: noise from the associated gas station and the freight trains and the highway...never a quiet moment. Dusty sites, untrimmed AC grabbing trees, low water pressure (40 lbs). Can be flat dangerous trying to maneuver 62’ of combined rig across a divided highway and into the park. - SVLandYacht

If you are self contained and are looking for a clean, quiet, safety campground in this area then this is your campground. We needed an overnight on the road and did not want to pay double this rate at other campgrounds for amenities we would not use. The camp host is a sheriff. The young woman at the fairgrounds that answers the phone is a breath of fresh air. This campground is new this year and was about 2/3rds full the Friday night we stayed here in late August. I suspect once word gets out you will need reservations far in advance during the season. - barbielab

Kootenai county fairgrounds RV Park is a new campground within Coeur D'Alene, ID. It is located between Government Way and 4th street on 482 East Dalton Avenue. There are 28 sites and a camp host on duty. The inner loop is on asphalt and all sites are on pea gravel. All sites have FHU and a picnic table. The electrical utility box contains 50/30/15 amp service and is located on the appropriate side. The electrical current was good - hovering around 120 volts. There are no bathrooms or showers. There is one porta-potty. Wi-Fi is not available within the campground. Verizon hot spot and phone reception was good. There are two handicap sites that are on asphalt. Contrary to the parks web site, there are no trees within this park. The length of each site varies. You might want to check out their web site to decide which site you want. Some sites can accommodate large RVs with a tow without unhitching. There is a maximum stay of 14 days but their web site does not state when you can come back to the park. The fairgrounds web site need some work. Instead of entering arrival and departure dates you have to click on each of the 28 sites and see if the site is available. There are two sites that can accommodate two RVs. However, all of the utilities are located on one side. I don't know how that would work. This park is about 2 miles from downtown Coeur D'Alene. We would return to this park if we were in the area. We have a 32 foot 5th wheel. - adsaxs

Our rating is for the park itself not management........... The park is beautiful with many nice large big rig sites. Now the issue with park management. This park has many Walk Up Sites..... But they will not release them until 2:30pm and will not tell you how many are available until 2:30pm which make no sense at all. Here we are at the park early [because we camped in site #5] and are told to break camp and park in the parking lot until 2:30pm when they will let you know if you get a site or not....... 2:30 in the afternoon before you know. "Unbelievable" I did ask why so late and the answer is even unbelievable, because we are busy in the morning and early afternoon cleaning sites. Terrible service......... Why have walk up sites at all ???? - JR and The Boys

This park is exactly what we wish all of our campground locations could be. First of all, it is located in Laclede Idaho about 20 minutes east of Old Town. It is a COE park with exceptionally large, mostly level, well laid-out sites with electric and water. Very few of the sites actually had views of the river. There is a dump station at the entrance to the park. All utilities were easily accessed and worked very well. The fire pit and picnic table are on a contained gravel area under heavy tree coverage. Within the recreation area is easy access to the river with multiple fishing piers, children's playgrounds, and a swimming beach. The camp attendants were friendly and helpful and have horseshoes and other games available for checkout. Wood is available for $5 a bundle at the office. We were able to get 5 OTA television stations and had both Verizon and Sprint service. The interior roads are doable in a 38-foot 5th wheel but care must be taken to watch for overhanging limbs and tree trunks. There are paved and gravel walking trails throughout the entire park and a area for dogs along the river. the town of Sandpoint is about 10 minutes east and has 2 grocery stores. Fuel is available in Laclede. Reservations are available for about a third of the sites on recreation.gov. We were able to obtain a beautiful sight as a walk in on a Monday. The park closes at the end of September for the season. We would definitely stay here again. - bbmidwife

Great COE park on the Pend Orielle River. It is in the trees so TV may be a problem. Very clean, very quiet, large spaces, gravel spots, paved interior roads. Would have given it a 10, but no sewer hookups at the sites. Nice beach and boat launch too. - b7xv
