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

We are full time RVers and stayed in lots of parks around the country. However Tamarack RV park is in my book one of the top notch parks and no they don't have a pool, a tub or a rec room, but their customer service and attitude is what makes it a 5 star experience! Every staff member at the park went extra mile to help us with any issues and questions we had. We are going on the third week staying here and love it! It is a quiet cool oasis between pine trees with immaculate grounds. Clean private bathrooms and convenient laundry room. Very reasonably priced considering high demand area. The spaces are a bit tight to get into due to narrow lanes, but they are also fairly wide, level and separated by bushes from adjacent sites. Very close to shopping, dining and only 10 min drive to downtown. We hope to return next year and stay here again! - Freedomlovers

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

Town has grown up around this park. As other reviewers have said, the right turn off the main road is tight - more than a 90 degree angle. The roads are paved, but the sites are large, rocky gravel. The spaces are very close together. Try for site 5 as the one next door has a tree and picnic table in it and I don't think they put people there too often. The water is high pressure so a regulator is needed. Lots of road/urban noise. Lots of full timers/worker guys. But it is very tidy and did quiet down at night. The staff was person was perfunctory when we pulled in, but when I had called earlier, I got a very friendly person. The plus side of this place is that it is right in town and right on the bike path. There is a nice boardwalk on the river walking distance from the park. - ALbums

Note this park is changing its name from River Walk to Riverstone. The signage at the park says Riverstone but the web site is still River Walk.
The park is very conveniently located to the interstate; you can walk to a upscale shopping area with restaurants, brand new movie theatre, business services like Verizon and massage. Plus there are several coffee bars (seems on every corner). Grocery stores are close. The sites are VERY TIGHT for big rigs but they do have pull-through spaces and make every effort to fit you in.
While you're in the area, be sure to make the 30 minute drive up to Farragut State Park; it was a not-so-secret Navy Training Center during WW II and they have a very interesting museum. The park is located on Pend Oreille, a pristine lake with a family friendly swimming cove. Silverwood, a very popular theme park, is also located right next door. - Tessa & Toadee on the Road

As other reviewers have noted, spaces close together; some permanents even claiming adjoining sites for parking and giving you the "stink eye" if you get near it. Paved roads and gravel sites, most somewhat level. Very little to no shade. The place could use a good general cleaning and a good amount of maintenance (sites currently without electricity, busted cable connections, etc.) to get it back in attractive condition. Another thing, don't dare hook up to the water, even with a filter! It is terrible, could not even swallow my first gulp! Power ok for our 30a unit at 120v. Rest rooms and showers clean and maintained. Did not use laundry room. No picnic table, fire ring, patio, etc. Very little room to park a tow vehicle; host simply had us park in a non-functional site. Registration office a paper and junk cluttered mess. Camp host appeared to be trying to make a go of it but seemed completely overwhelmed. I guess location is everything as this is extremely close to downtown, the college, bike paths and the river. All in all, I'd pay the considerable extra bucks next time and stay at the campground across the bridge. - pyrthkr

Stopped over for a one night stay. Excellent hosts, they were very helpful. Nice Lodge. - T_E_B

One of the biggest Elk Lodges we have camped. Sites are spacious, as we have 4 slides and 40ft motorhome. Plenty of room to park tow vehicle. The Elk members were very friendly and Tuesday is $5.00 burger nights. If you want a pin they charge for them. Would definitely stay here again. Saturday farmers market is within walking distance. The only negative is there are some homes which back up to the park and the dog owner allows their dog to bark. - goofy50

Only problem with this place is no sewer. Lodge is nice and friendly. Water sprinklers need adjustments. Easy dish network connection. - yumsbpa

Always a nice place to stay. Great for a big rig, with plenty of room to navigate, FHUs in the right location. Reasonably close to the interstate. It is all good. - MerBee

Beautiful park with great beach and water view if you pay $10 extra. The only negative were the employees. They felt a little like nosy neighbors keeping a close eye on your actions and making sure you know right away if you misstep. Other than that it was great and would definitely return. - Louden Clan

There's really noting special about this RV park, other than you can walk along the shore if you want. But it's really just a BIG parking lot with lots of RVs. The location to old town Coeur D' Alene is great and also easy access to other sites/destinations. So that's the good. The not-so-good is that management runs it like a mill.....no personal interaction, all business and all about the rules. The wifi is non-existent unless you end up at the far end of the park near the only wifi transmitter. Laundry was very expensive. The grass was worn out and the gravel turned to mud. - Bruce of Port Ludlow

Once again (see my 7/18 review), we were able to get a FHU site that was satellite friendly. The park is still heavily long term customers if that bothers you. The bathrooms and laundry were clean. As usual, the staff was friendly and helpful. - Jerry S

The park is near Hwy 95 & Hwy 41. & is about 8 mi. from Coeur d'Alene. There is all kinds of shopping nearby, the Walmart is about a block down from park. It is a large park of 190 sites, some pull thru, some backins, FHU 30 & 50A, long & wide sites, very roomy with trees, you park on gravel, sites have nice concrete patios, picnic table, roads in park are blacktop, cable & wifi. Friendly staff, nice sitting room with TV in building by office, indoor pool & kiddy pool, Showers & bathrooms by office building, also a laundry room near front of park, & another building near back of park with showers & laundry. Did not use showers or laundry but did look in there all were good & clean. This is a Good Sam discount park, rate is $48. before discount & tax, they also have weekly & monthly rates, there are some living here year around, park is very clean. We were her all the week end of July beginning Aug. 2019. It is a busy park always full, need to book early if you want to be in Coeur d'Alene area July & Aug. Nice place, we would come back again when in area. - 2GermanAmericans

We stayed at CDA RV park in July 2019. Staff member was was super nice, answered all of our concerns from the moment we made our reservations, when I called to reconfirm my reservations as well as assured me our reservation would still be good when we were not arriving in on the day we said we would be here. We were put into a nice spot on the other side of the fence near the entrance. My husband had no issues backing our rig into the space. There are shower and laundry facilities here. The laundry machines are old however, they are cleaned and maintained. Two dog runs, we would take our doxies in, close the gate they would run up and down. There is a big grass area with a gazebo and grills as well as a basketball court. The downside here was WiFi it was slow which for me was frustrating.
My tip is "Be kind and friendly" I get some people have lots of money and some of the rigs in this park are in the six figure plus range, this does not make you better than the other campers. I promise you it won't kill you to say Hello and turn the frown upside down. - Anne51

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

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

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
