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

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

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

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

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

Great value, paved interior roads in campground, easy big rig access. Verizon 2 bars; data slow. AT&T data good. Zero over air, some sites dish friendly. Clean restrooms. Many return campers set up where they want so expecting a specific spot may be unrealistic. If you are sensitive to train noise you will want to run a fan or ac during the night, but we loved it! - Sun Seeker

This is a great little park. Sadly, we couldn't fit in our 45' motorhome. However smaller rigs .......lets say 30 feet and down would be perfect. Nice shade, great location, well kept. clean. This is a well laid out park with plenty of elbow room and wonderful sites. We'd highly recommend it (based on your size) !! - Tucsonbenz

This is a beautiful little park with private, shady sites in the Colville National Forest two miles from Newport on the Pend Oreille River. A pleasant trail and boardwalk is nice for viewing the river and learning about the native heritage and local flora and fauna. This was my second stay here and it won't be my last. Verizon signal was good. - 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

Wonderful Park! We go here at least three times a year. You can ride ATV's right out of the campground and access hundreds of miles of mountain trails or launch your boat and enjoy miles of the river. Just be cautious of spots 3-12...they are in a field and if you have neighbors it will be very tight (about 2 1/2') between rigs! But again, I recommend the park, a nice place to stay! - W. Bates
