There are 3 Priest Lake State Park campgrounds, this review is for the Indian Creek Unit. We were there starting one week after Labor Day and the campground was maybe only 10% occupied. An exception is the 11 full hook-up sites, which were probably at capacity. Nice forested area, many hiking trails. The trail to the vista point was worth the climb! There is a nice beach area, and one part is okay for dogs. There is a boat ramp with parking and two boat docks. The sites are stacked pretty close to one another, and if full or close to full, there would be neighbors very close to you. There is a dump station, free to campers. We had 1 bar Verizon signal, but zero AT&T signal. - Jeff J

The setting here is quite nice with lots of space; however, they do allow OHV in the park and quite a few were just joyriding around the loop. Lots to do in the park and the surrounding area with hiking and sightseeing. The sites are dirt and gravel, but well laid out with plenty of room. There was a picnic table and fire ring. We were in Loop A and didn't have cell service, but we could get service by walking down towards the lake. The camp store has some necessities, but their big business is ice cream with a steady stream of customers. The camp hosts were very friendly and we enjoyed talking to them and sharing travel experiences as well as things to do in the area. - jtl2

Beautiful setting campsites among the trees and bushes with lots of space between each camper. Lake views, great sandy beach and swimming area. Priest Lake State Park Store and gas. Outdoor ranger activities for kids. Hiking, boating, fishing, water skiing, wake boarding, tubing, bicycle trails. Family friendly with plumbed restrooms and showers. - Well oiled campers

New owners have raised the price beyond reasonable It is now $45.00 per night with NO Discounts for extended stays. Plus they want 5.95 per day for a poor quality Wi-Fi. Cable Tv is horrible. These people are clueless!! They tried to raise to 49.00 but must have figured out this was totally out of line. We had to clean a lot of bird poop off the broken plastic picnic table. Dog waste was an issue. All they want is your money! - Dave Alexander

Too high priced for what is. Pool cold even in hot weather, cable TV a joke, 9 local channels totally snowy. However sites are nice, but narrow. - Chlh

This is definitely the best location in the area. Close to town & the lake, quiet, very clean, good 50 amp service. The pads are not very wide and a Class A will have trouble staying off the grass, but they are 70 ft long. Trees need to be trimmed to allow better access to sites, but do provide shade at concrete pad with usable picnic table. Clear satellite view. We did not use any of the hotel facilities. - Freedom Bus

Overall, it is very well kept and the facilities were immaculate. There are beautiful spots down by the water which I would highly recommend. Would not recommend spot 3 for anyone with a camper close to 30 ft. It was challenging getting into this spot and were only able to by having our truck off road and in the trees (likely getting scratched). The sites are all paved and are generally quite large, but not all have wide enough roads and ability to maneuver your vehicle as needed. Saw other people experiencing similar issues with one person just opting to leave. - phreespirit

This is a newly reservable campground located on the SW side of Priest Lake at Outlet Bay. The location is beautiful and the campground has been recently renovated. I just want to warn people that if you have a larger RV, be sure to pick one of the very large sites located in loops A or B. I say this because the roads in this campground are rather narrow and lined with trees, especially on loop C so it makes parking a larger trailer or RV more difficult. We had chosen site 23 in loop C and length-wise it would have handled our travel trailer fine, but it did not mention on their website how steep this particular site was and we ended up NOT being able to camp here after all due to the difficulty of properly and SAFELY leveling our trailer. If we attempt to camp here again, we will definitely choose one of the larger and more level sites just to be safe! Otherwise, I think we would have rated this campground much higher. It's proximity to the lake is great and the area is so beautiful. - Addicted Camper

We stayed here for 3 nights. Water pressure was bad, but it might be because we were sharing with an old, dilapidated mobile home next door. No wifi, no cell (ATT or VZ). The one good thing was a large grass area in the middle of the park.
Our site (21) was disgusting. They never clean. There was old toilet paper and other unknown things on the ground near the sewer hole. An old rag left on a boulder. No picnic tables.
Worse was both Saturday and Sunday nights were loud party nights: 1:30-2am each night. Loud!!! Also, there aren't any fire rings, but as the area was under 'no open fire' restrictions, they wouldn't be necessary. However, that didn't stop a bonfire party 3 sites down. We will never be back. - User2989

This campground was a nice surprise after having to leave a nearby Forest Service campground due to the site we had reserved being too steep and short to park our RV safely. We pulled in after sunset, so at first it was hard to see much, but we picked an empty site which was perfectly level and very wide. Upon waking the next morning we were pleased to see how neat and clean the campground was. It is tucked back off the main highway so is private and quiet. Apparently, it has been recently redone so there are no trees around the sites for shade, but you are surrounded by pine trees and aspen. They also do not provide picnic tables at the sites. But only $24 for full hookups, we were not complaining! There is a store, bar, and restaurant on the premises, as well as a laundry room. Priest Lake is a short drive down the road and we spent the day at a Forest Service picnic/beach area for free and thoroughly enjoyed the beauty of the lake and surrounding mountains. We will definitely keep this campground on our list! - Addicted Camper

As previous reviewer stated, beautiful, well-landscaped park. Large sites and some are positioned to allow satellite TV reception. Good 50 amp power though our EMS dropped us offline once due to a frequency problem. No Verizon wireless service of any type available. (4G at Elkins resort - 3 miles away) Pay shower ($5). Restrooms are located in the bar. Good food at the restaurant. Would stay here again. - Davydee

Second time we've stayed here. The value for the location is awesome. Folks are friendly. Good Verizon coverage. - Maltaman

Good campground for exploring Sandpoint area. Lots of grass, big communal picnic shelter. Sites have water, electric and wifi (although it didn't work on one day of our stay).
As previously mentioned hosts this year appear to be invisible as opposed to when we have stayed previously over the last few years and the hosts were visible and chatty.
The showers were not cleaned during our weekend stay and, as the campground was very busy, this was unpleasant. In past stays they were always kept clean. - Kootenaigirl

Positives: Paved water and electric sites, green grass, some shade. Good Verizon signal. Negatives: Can be pretty much summed up in two words: Train whistles. Day and night. Self-check in. Tried calling the 'host' per phone number posted but no answer. It is my belief the the 'host' is mythical creature that does not exist. Saw neither hide nor hair of anyone at the 'host' site. Presumably, someone empties the drop box. Would stay here again. With earplugs. - mockturtle

Stayed in site 13, there really was nothing good to say about the place other than the Manger and the Ladies' who assisted me in parking my car. Those Women stepped up to the plate and were very professional as well as polite, we shared time with our Dogs and laughed a lot. If I were the owner of this establishment I would not allow them to leave, they make great Assist. Mangers. Needs better house keepers and grounds up keep. - babybluejay

Emphasize the HIDE in Hi-Dee Ho, because although we could clearly see the Lake RV sales lot immediately next door to this venue, we could not see their signage (behind a tree when coming from the north - Bonner Mall) until we were almost on top of it. Check in folks were nice enough. Coin operated showers which always aggravates me and we just choose option B which is to go ahead and fill the tanks and dump before we leave. Scads of highway construction going on so you might want to wait until next season. Would probably look for something else next time we're in the area. - pyrthkr

Unreasonable rules for pets. Very small spots, tight quarters, many full-timers, gravel sites. Large bathrooms with shower and potty in same room. - mjtesky

This is a small RV park attached to the Best Western next door. Use of the hotel's indoor pool, hot tub and shower/bathroom is allowed. If you book here realize that it is directly adjacent to a busy rail line, upwards of 40 freight trains a day. So if you are sensitive to noisy trains, probably not for you. Sites are basic, but hook ups worked fine. It is right next to the lake. A swimming beach and city park right there. Can walk to town for food or drinks. Is it a fancy park, no it isn't. We didn't mind the trains(these are 2-4 engine 100+ car trains). We will be back as the lake is spectacular and works for us. - Karfae

The RV area of this resort is basically a dirt lot...a lot overlooking the city beach parking lot, then the lake. The lake is a beautiful sight, if you are lucky enough to see it from your space. The spaces are way too close together...our neighbor's sewer hookup was about 3 feet outside our door, right next to our picnic table....not that you would want to sit out there because the train tracks are right next to you and there are FORTY trains passing by a day! The noise is deafening, the shaking ground unnerving. Now for the good....if you stay here, you will be within a very short walk to all that this charming town has to offer....restaurants, coffee places, nice shops and fun pubs. The scenery in the area is beautiful! The people are very friendly.
Though I would definitely visit Sandpoint again, I would never stay at this RV dirt lot again. There are no other choices right in town, but I would rather get a good nights sleep in an out of the way place and drive to what I wanted to visit, then to be in the best location that is noisy, cramped and overpriced ($45 a night, not a good value!) We stayed here in our 5th wheel. - Jenono16

There were only two parks open when we visited Sandpoint and this one was within walking distance to everything we needed, including a cool little park for our kids and a beach. They didnt have laundry but there is a laundromat down the road that was very cheap with very fast machines. The pros to this place were that we had access to the pool, jacuzzi and showers in the hotel (the rv's basically park across the street in a lot with picnic tables. It's back in rather than pull through but was still pretty easy) The con was really that the trains ran all night and were ridiculously loud. My son who loves trains loved it, but my nearly two year old daughter hardly slept and spent most of the night yelling at them to stop. I would have probably slept through them with earplugs just fine but am quite attuned to my kids in my sleep. The town itself is lovely... I cannot express how lovely, and I would go out of my way to visit again. Beautiful, sweet people and beautiful town. The staff at the hotel were very lovely as well. - MrsMay

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
