We stayed in the Thousand Trails part of this campground, and the rate ($0) reflects that we are family Courtesy Card holders. There are very few 50A hookups and no sewer sites in this campground. It is not clear which sites are 50A and which are 30A until you go to each site - it appears that only a very few of the first sites you come to along the meadow are 50A sites. A lot of the sites have the utilities on the "wrong" side - ok in a motorhome because you can pull into the site, but difficult for trailers or 5th wheels. There is definitely a lot of variance from site-to-site in terms of both length and width of site. - pattic777

If you come here, be prepared to sit in your camper. That's because of the yellow jackets. They are everywhere and, if you go outside, they are all over you. Even our dog wouldn't stay outside. When travelling through the campground, we noticed that the other campers were staying inside, too. We did get some yellow jacket traps at the local hardware store, but even that didn't keep them from bothering us. Sites are close together and about half of them were too short to fit our 32 foot 5th wheel. Several haven't been used in a while and are overgrown with weeds. Roads are narrow. Dish satellite didn't work at all because of the trees. We did get some OTA TV, but only ABC came in consistently. The girls at the gate were friendly and helpful. The laundry was clean and the machines did a good job. This is the first time I can remember not having to add coins to the dryers. There is a clubhouse with some games, etc. for guests. It was a good place to go on a hot day to play pool, ping pong, checkers, etc. - Bobbi1948

No sewer, so dump before you park. Lots of trees and the setting is beautiful. Part Koa and part Thousand Trails. Super friendly staff and the roads are easy to navigate, they do charge to have a package delivered, - User1471

Rate is for a companion site. This review is from a 45' motorhome. Stayed in Gilmore loop. All in all a real nice state park. Arrived early and took the toad to the site to check tree clearances. Host allowed me to bring in pole saw to trim a few branches that would scratch paint. After minor trimming, no problem getting into site. Didn't notice may sites in the Gilmore loop that would be a problem. They are close to opening a new loop next to Gilmore that will have 50 sites with sewer hookups. Just about all would easily fit a 45'motorhome. Host indicated these would be first come / first serve when opened (don't know if that is for the remainder of 2018 only). Fewer trees, but still nice and well spaced sites. Did not notice if this loop will have a bathhouse, but for self contained rigs, this will be a great option. Park has lots of hiking and biking trails, beach, boat launch, 5 disc golf courses, good activities for kids, etc. Would return. - Selectively Unemployed

We spent 3 nights here the end of October. During those 3 nights there was between 2-5 other campers in the entire park. Restrooms, museum and swimming beach were all closed. Water was turned off at campsites. No WiFi, 3g Verizon. Days were cool and dry. Wonderful sharing the endless hike/bike trails and quiet campground with tons of wildlife. Park is big rig friendly with lots of spots our 63' could have fit into. - barbielab

I agreed with all the positive comments about this park. It is very well maintained and spotless. However, as someone else who visited last year in September noted they close the restrooms and showers in all the campgrounds in September. There are the nicest pit toilets I've ever seen available, but they still smell like pit toilets no matter how nice and clean they are. There are no sewer hookups in the campsites. They had an open beach restroom down by the lake that the park clerk directed me too when I enquired about showers at checkin, but she didn't say a word about the campground restrooms being complete closed for the season. I felt I wasn't given full disclosure. Be aware that the campground is far above the lake and most people will want to drive to the beach area, whether for swimming or a hot shower. - Dougrc

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

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

After reading the other reviews, we were expecting a crappy, run down park but it was actually a very nice park. Paved roads, well kept, and very clean. Yes, 90% of the park is filled with long termers and some had insulation but it wasn't offensive to us. Skirting was well done on the majority of them. Great wifi. We would stay here again! - 2VetsRVing

When we arrived it looked like a very nice park. We had a pull thru very tight to get into. Once we were settled everything was fine. 50 amps water cable, but the sewer was at the very end of the site. My 25 ft Sewer hose almost didn't fitn sewer hose almost didn't fit. We walked around the park, what a disappointment. It appeared that the park was mainly live aboards. Most of the spaces were cluttered with cars,propane bottles, insulation, taped on to the RVs. I would not recommend this park anyone. - Crbus

STAY AWAY! This is the worst park I have even been too. The bad reviews are not wrong.
We arrived for a one night stay. We we came along the street, it looked OK. Once we pulled in, it was the worst. We were stuck as we had no water and full tanks from boondocking the previous few days, so we needed a park with hookups.
When we were taken to our site, the park worker asked the full-timer in the spot next to us (about 70% are full timers) to move their car out of our tow-vehicle parking spot. But alas, they could not because the car had NO steering wheel. This park had junk cars in it.
Also, there was two bags of empty beer bottles on the table to greet us. This was sitting there after the employee looked over the site. Our site also smelled of cat or dog pee.
We just stayed in our trailer for sleeping and shower. In hindsight, I would have skipped the showers, dumped at the Flying J, and stayed at Walmart.
I do want to mention that the employee and manager were very nice. I had no issues with them, just the overall state of the park. - steammaker

Sites are narrow, road is pot holed, just decrepit is best way to describe. When registering, the office is away from sites, and its a good thing (for them). Pay attention when registering, there is a NO REFUND policy! When you get to the sites, you'll understand why. I carried my 9mm whenever I left the motorhome to walk the dogs. Would stay in Flying J before I'd stay here again. - DenMortonUSMC

The park is not visible from the office. The fees are paid in advance of driving into the park and non-refundable with less than 48 hours notice. There's the hook; once you see what you've got yourself into, it's too late. I'd guess 75% of the park spaces are full time residents. Lots of tattoos, bald headed men with pointy beards. Scary looking women and dirty, unkempt, children. The cops drive through regularly. We witnessed a male being arrested. Our first night there it sounded like a gun being fired at the other end of the park. I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone. - Beth Wilder

This park has very tall trees and it's very tight. We have 43' 5th wheel and we stayed in spots B3-B4. We made it in here but it was tight. We turned our unit around when it was vacant on both sides of us so we could exit the park. Not sure we could have made the turn at the end of the Park to exit the normal way. It's close to Costco and sporting goods stores but it sits on a major road. - KSTraveler

Stayed 3 nights in a 25ft RV, did not enjoy, campground is right on a main busy 4 lane street. It appears that a lot of construction type workers stay here and get all the best spots away from noisy street, very loud trucks when leaving for work at mornings. Very tight spots. I could not even put out our awning it was so packed afraid of hitting next camper. One good note the bathrooms were very nice, but that's all that was. - RVandFree

I believe that I am one of the people some of the other reviewers are referring to in their review. I tried to make my reservation at the same time as M.G. I spoke with a female employee on the phone when we made our reservations for July 7th thru July 9th. When we arrived on the afternoon of the 7th we were told that they did not have our reservation, because we were a month late! They claimed we made our reservation for JUNE 7-9th! REALLY?!?!? How is that possible when the reservations were made on June 17th!!! Retroactive reservations I guess... The employees were dumbfounded. Their solution was to kick other RV'ers out of their spot and cram our 38" & 40' 5th wheels into one spot, and stuff the other person somewhere undesirable for them (They were also very unhappy with how it was handled). There's no way the two big rigs would even come close to fitting in the single spot they proposed. We would then have to find somewhere in the facility to park our tow vehicles, but they didn't know where that would be. After more than an hour of nonsense, we told them we wanted a full refund and we were leaving. The one thing they did right was issue a full refund. We were sent off on a Friday afternoon with no reservations anywhere, and no openings anywhere nearby. Aside from the incompetent staff and their comedy of errors, the park left a lot to be desired. As others have said, it is smack in the middle of the city on a very busy, noisy road. The spaces are very tight, cramped and buried in very tall trees. There's no way you could get any satellite TV service. The roads were very narrow. We had doubts about just being able to navigate them safely when we exited to park. A large number of the spaces in the park were taken by full-timers. The park must have very liberal rules that apply to them as it looked very cluttered and junky. Our experience left such a bad taste in our mouth that we would not return here on a dare. - JimBau

I tried to camp at another park in town, but it was FULL. So we started out of town on 95 south and seen this park. This is a well laid out park with grass sites and plenty of room. for our 43 foot RV It is located behind a fuel station .Partly with some trees, I cannot get my Direct TV The park is mostly free of road noise, but you do here the trains at night as they are about a mile away when they start to blow their horns, and blow their horns they do! All night long. Many, many of them. I needed to use my ear plugs even here. I am so glad I am not in town closer to the tracks, I cannot even imaging the noise they must make. And at a much more reasonable cost and more space also! Its just a short drive over the bridge to town. - Camping USA

This a no frills campsite. All dirt and grass. The site is so trampled. Water pressure was great. Sewer hole is a bit hug and doesn't have any threads. Electric was fine. Neighbors were quiet and no road noise. Trains pass, but it wasn't terrible. The trees are very overgrown. We had to decline several possible sites because of overhead tree branches. The site we ended up on had a dead tree. So it was ok. Why wouldn't they replace a dead tree! Overall was OK. - User2989

We stayed here because we had no other options. We got shafted at a different resort on a Friday afternoon and had absolutely nowhere to go. This park had openings. (Should be your first clue when they have openings on a Friday afternoon!) If you LOVE freight trains, then this is the park for you! You will hear freight trains all night long, at the rate of every 20-30 minutes and every single one blasts its horn as they pass by. They are so loud that it sounds like they are a couple hundred feet away. Added to the trains is the fact that this is a very busy gas station with a RV park behind it. You'll hear large trucks and loud cars all day and night. The sites were very tight, had dirt pads, dead grass and large untrimmed trees. The park was dirty, dusty and trashy. There were some unsavory characters roaming around the sites day and night. When the wind blew in the right direction we could smell ether in the air. If you don't know what that is associated with, Google it. We paid for three nights but left as soon as the sun came up the first morning and never looked back. Didn't want to have our stuff stolen or blown up. To add insult to injury, the tress in our spot were so overgrown and in need of trimming it tore a hole in our roof. Won't ever stop here again...period! - JimBau

No hookups available. Grounds and restrooms were very clean and well maintained. Right on the Pend Orielle river with a good beach, swimming area and boat ramp. I liked everything about this campground other than they lock the gate at 10:00 PM until 7:00 AM. Not a fan of being locked in anywhere. Fire pits and picnic table are available and "small" fires allowed. - DRKM

The rate reflects the discount with Golden Age pass. The campground was full but not chaotic. The showers did not work so that was a big black mark against the park, as they were not making any attempt to fix them. My site 8 was near the restroom and often the walking path for those needing to use the facility. I would suggest the park make a path very apparent for access to the bathroom so the site can be avoided. Kids rode their bicycles through, adults walked through and I thought it showed a lack of campground etiquette as well. I would stay again - in a different site. - obxblond

This is a nice park in a great location. The town is noted for being a walking tow, with very friendly people and some great places to eat. Everything at the park was neat and in order and the management seem to care about the park. They have a boat ramp and a dock, which is ideal for fishing. - RalphOnTheRoad
