This is a simple little campground on the creek. The staff is very nice. There is no Wifi. Our AT&T and Verizon signals were weak but we could check maps and plan our travel. There is a little bit of highway noise but it isn't bad. You are right by the bike trail. I loved the big open field for walking our dog. We didn't realize when we pulled in that not many sites were full hookups. We were just there for one night so we dumped as we left the next morning. As others have mentioned, the power is low. I didn't realize it because we didn't need to run our AC. But when I microwaved my breakfast I set it for 30 seconds like I do every morning. It was ice cold. Then I added another 30 seconds and it was ice cold. Normally one round of 30 seconds is super hot! So I don't think there was enough power to run the microwave. The bathrooms were in a permanent trailer and they were nice and clean. The only odd thing - I went to go to the bathroom for the first time and the door was locked. I stood outside for about 8 minutes thinking someone was probably taking a shower. Finally, the door opened and was left open about a foot but no one came out. I hesitated to open it more and see if I could go inside, too, or if the person was airing it out or what. I looked inside and there were two toilets, two sinks and two showers! So why this other camper locked me out I have no idea!!! If they add wifi and work on the electric situation I would definitely stay here again for a longer vacation - we just overnighted on our way to Glacier. - OurBigAdventure

Absolutely beautiful location along the river - the freeway noise did not bother us at all! No Wi-Fi or OTA but the pads are nice level cement sites. The owners was very nice and rules low key - we would have stayed longer but they were sold out for the fourth of July week. A great value at $35 - ctravelgal01

I wish I would've paid closer attention to the previous reviews before staying at this park. This park has very low voltage, and we were there when it was in the upper 90's. Everyone was having trouble getting their A/C to work as the power was so low (104 at the lowest). We were in a 50amp site and still had ours drop out due to low voltage with nothing running. Not good on a hot day for sure! Our friends had problems starting as soon as we got there. The owner tried to make them think it was their rig, but then my husband came over with the meter and showed him it was their lines that were the issue. He then said they do have low voltage. This could be a great park if they'd get their electrical issues worked out. They can bring in a bigger service, but must not want to pay to do that. We're full-timers and not interested in ruining our equipment. Obviously, from the previous reviews, they have known this for at least 2 years. Not a very good business practice! Also, they put cones across the driveway so you have to get out and move the cones every time you come in or leave. Not even sure why they are there? If you're by yourself you have to get out to move them, drive thru, then get out to move them back. There is no OTA channels and Verizon and AT&T barely had coverage. We have a satellite and was able to get it as there is also no shade in most sites. Would not stay here again. - jacknpeg

My wife and I and another couple camped at Albert's Landing this past weekend. We have a large travel trailer with a slide out. The owner reserved a very spacious RV spot in a beautiful meadow for us with 30 amp power. Site #38 might be the best site to reserve if you have a large RV. #38 has the most shade. The owner visited us several times during our stay and asked if there was anything she could do for us. The campground was full, but the sites are so spacious that we did not feel cramped. Overall, a very nice clean campground with a very gracious host. - Zagsfan

Fantastic new owners and this place is great fun! Highly recommended! Especially loved the large beach front on the Coeur d'Alene River (with fire rings). - Wesley Harrison

We needed a place to stay after driving east from Seattle and saw this campsite as an opportunity to get away from the freeway traffic noise. Originally we were set to camp in an electric site but, after looking around elected to stay on the grass in the middle away from other campers so as to get a little more privacy. Campsites spaced close together. Manager quite nice when we arrived but caution to any big rigs that the turn by the office is tight. Unhook at the gas station before you enter the park. Large fifth wheels might be a tight fit. Campground itself has plenty of room for big rigs or 5th wheels if you can negotiate the 165 degree turn. - photokent

This campground has been sold and will be developed into condo's. - Bob2013

This is a typical KOA. The sites are adequate in size, and not back-to-back. At least your slide isn't touching your neighbor's slide or his awning like some KOA's. The campground is small in size and they seem to pack them in pretty tightly; especially the tenting area. I've never seen so many tents crunched together. The roads were pretty dusty and we had to keep our windows closed from the passing vehicles. The campground is about a quarter mile from a bike trail and within walking distance of town. We probably would not stay there again if in the area. - shirleyj62

As everyone said before, the entrance is difficult, the noise from the highway very loud. I would give them a 10 if they moved away from the highway. Way over priced for the park. BTW, I wonder if it is an old KOA. - saturn7

Very nice, well kempt campground with gorgeous views! Yes, the entrance is narrow but we had no problem in a 41' MH. The staff is very kind and helpful. They offer pull-through and back-in sites. The lengths of each site are listed on their website so it's very easy to choose which is the right one for your set up. We had plenty of room. The sites are a little narrow but not nearly as bad as what previous comments state. Site was very level and gravel with green grass. Offer canoe, kayak and tube rental. Lots for little ones to do! Laundry facilities have brand new washers. Some road noise but we didn't even notice it after about 30 minutes. Cannot hear at all inside rig. We will definitely be back!!! If you're a large Class A, disconnect tow vehicle on main road. Swing wide going in and you'll be just fine! - LivinLife16

They advertise a dump station in Good Sam but there is none there. Their answer is for you to go to a vacant full hook up site and use the dump. A recent Good Sam review said they charge $5 for this. Since we left early in the morning, and all sites were full, that was not an option. The sites are tight and close together. Awnings were close to touching the next trailer's slide out. They advertise pull through sites as being 70 feet long and back-ins at 40. The majority of of the sites are way shorter than that. When we left we had to ask 2 campers to move in order to get our trailer out. The best thing for them is the wonderful staff. I would not return there. - normdave

Although the sites are narrow and close together this is mitigated by the stepped nature of the campground on a steep hillside. The bathrooms and showers are among the best we have experienced. Although full we never found them to be anything but spotless. In addition to RV sites there is a significant number of both cabins and camp areas. It is not a real destination campground and is in easy reach of Coeur d'Alene. Free firewood is on offer and the piles kept well stocked. - Young Codger

NIce park with easy access. Clean pool and free firewood. Park sits alongside a estuary to Coeur d Alene Lake with fishing, canoe or paddle board access. - Alaskamike

The rate reflects a 50% Federal Senior Pass discount. The standard rate of $20 is quite high for a campground where the only services are trash and pit toilets. There is water with a hand pump, so not suitable for filling a tank. There is no dump station. So, you will want to arrive with fresh water and empty waste tanks.
Is is important to emphasize that this campground is not suitable for big rigs. The interior roads are very narrow and the sites short. Also, during our visit there were fairly large branches extended over the roadway, so it is not suitable for high-profile vehicles unless you don't mind some potential scratches. By the time we discovered this, we were fairly committed on a one-way road and decided to go with the potential scrapes.
Many of the sites are tent only. About half of the sites are reservable. We arrived without reservations on a Thursday at about 11, and had about three sites to choose from. The sites are paved and many are well separated with thick vegetation for visual separation.
The campground is in a valley, so you will not see sun very early in the morning and it will go down about 4 or so in the summer. It was very quiet and dark at night. The campground is about 15 minutes outside of Coeur d'Alene. It feels very isolated. There was no camp host and some campers looked like they were living here. We had some slight concern about leaving our motorhome here as we visited the town, but fortunately, we had no problems. We were able to get a good Verizon signal for voice and data. The campground is certainly much less expensive than the commercial campgrounds in the area. - TheJim

Just stayed one night as a stopover on our way from Oregon to Montana. A little pricey at $20 for dry camping NF campground. They take reservations here online, otherwise it's first-come first-serve on available sites. Definitely not for big rigs. We have a 29-foot 5th-wheel and we really struggled to back into site 16 due to the very narrow road and might have scratched up our truck's front corner needing to turn into the bushes, but got it in backing the wheels all the way to the tire stopper (back end extending into the campsite area). The hosts ended up being a family with teenage and young kids and seemed too busy with their brood than to help the campers or even remove old tag posts so that we could have seen that there were other available sites to choose from! We arrived at 4pm with check-out at 1pm so there was no excuse for not cleaning up the site posts. The sites have a lot of undergrowth foliage so you can't see your neighbors, which is how camping should be! The creek was completely dry at our visit. Each site was concrete pad with picnic table and fire pit w/ grill. It's dry camping here and no dump station, so come with full/empty tanks, generator, and stocked groceries. Vault toilets only, no running water or showers. There were water spigots for drinking/cooking and dogs. Lastly, we work online so Verizon LTE data coverage is important, and we got strong service here. - Sara C.

Decent NF campground with narrow spaces, but lots of space between spots and all right next to the creek. Pit toilets, bear boxes, and that's about it. Many spots will need some leveling aid. Not a campground for large rigs. - mikeyair

Don't be fooled by the "work in progress" when you drive in because this was the most awesome RV park I have stayed in. You get a nice safe quiet stay on a beautiful river. You could not find better food right there in the restaurant and there is alcohol to boot. The owner will go out of her way to make you right at home. I plan to return to stay in the guest rooms next time I fly in. The atmosphere is peaceful, fun, and relaxing. - Simone Michelle

This campground is listed in the Trailer Life Directory, but certainly should be avoided. It is hard to find, hard to navigate in and lacks decorum you expect for a minimal family park. I left early for lack of cell phone or Internet access and could not get a refund from owners. - Mack L

I would really like to give this campground a good review because the owners are really nice and friendly, but the park leaves a lot to be desired. We needed a place to stay for the night when all the camps on the south end of Lake Coeur de Alene were full on a Friday in July due to some sort of festival that was going on that weekend. This camp is on the banks of the St. Joe River just outside of Saint Marie. It's an old school "ma & pa" type camp without much updating. The sites are close together on dirt/gravel and slope upward toward the back where there is a grassy area along the bank of the river. I would imagine a lot of leveling would be necessary. Most are probably long enough to accommodate big rigs but you'd probably have to disconnect anything you are towing. Also, there is little to no view of the river from the sites because of trees and bushes. Most sites do appear to have some shade. There are one men's and one women's restroom which appeared to be clean (didn't use them) and no showers as far as I could see. We didn't need hookups that night so settled for just parking in an area on the large lawn they have where there were several trees for shade. The fee was $15 for dry camping which beat the $38 for the full hookup sites for us. One big drawback is a gravel quarry operation that runs across the road all day until 7 p.m. and is noisy enough to be annoying. At least it was quiet in the evening. I didn't find many options in the area for RV parks, so if you need a place for a night in the are this will suffice, but I honestly can't recommend it for much more. - Pdxjoanne
