Camp Chain Lakes

1 site · RV, Tent5 acres · Cataldo, ID
Learn more about this land:Park your RV, overland rig, pitch a tent, or sleep under the stars next to the Coeur D’ Alene River. Be advised this is directly next to State Highway 3. If you are a light sleeper, or road noise bothers you, this is not the campsite for you. At the camp, you can launch your kayaks at the river to go for an adventure down through the Chain Lakes, all eight are accessible by the river adjacent to where you will sleep. The bird and wildlife watching in this area is world class. Ospreys, hawks, turkeys and other animals commonly hang out in these parts. You can go for a swim at one of the sandbars, take your dirt bikes or side by sides down Killarney Lake Road to access an extensive network of trails and dirt roads into remote wilderness. There is no cell service, no water or electrical hookups, or toilet. As beautiful as it is, your experience will not be “glamping” unless you come with all the comforts you personally desire. You can hunt on the forest service land by 4th of July Pass, fish on the river, or on the Chain Lakes (with the proper permits, of course). There is a access into the water from camp but it is quite steep. For easy access to the water, use the docks or boat launch at Killarney Lake or Bull Run. Pets and kids are allowed at your own risk. Be advised the highway and river are hazardous for off-leash animals and rambunctious toddlers.Please send a message if you have any questions. I am happy to help.

Waterside camping near Spokane guide

Overview

Just west of the Idaho border, Spokane offers a gateway to the landscape of eastern Washington. Paddle the Spokane River on a visit to Riverside State Park, where waterfalls and forests make for unforgettable hiking adventures. Mount Spokane State Park offers an adrenaline-filled alpine destination, with winter snow sports and summer hiking through the scenic Selkirk Mountains. And, a day trip to Turnbull National Wildlife Refuge is a chance to explore some of the region’s protected natural areas, including wetlands, pine forests, and moose habitats. Tent camping and RV parks make it easy to explore these landscapes. For a unique experience, try glamping on a working ranch or reserve a cabin for extra amenities like kitchens, showers, and wifi.

Where to go

Riverside State Park

Camp along the Spokane River and Little Spokane River, hike up to Nine Mile Recreation Area to see waterfalls, and enjoy outdoor excitement year-round in Riverside State Park. Summer offers paddle-sports, fishing, hiking, and rock-climbing, while wintertime is ideal for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. Campers can enjoy one of the park’s three campgrounds, as well as equine-friendly camping for overnight and day use. Cabins inside the park are available by reservation, and include kitchens, showers, bunk beds, and heating.

Mount Spokane State Park

Visit Mount Spokane State Park to discover 100-miles of hiking trails through the forest and up the slopes of Selkirk Mountain Range. Wildflowers bloom in late spring and early summer, while snowmobiling, skiing, and snow-shoeing are popular winter activities. Pick up a Discover Pass for day-use vehicle access, or spend the night in one of Mount Spokane’s eight tent campsites with restroom and water access. The fire lookout at the summit of Quartz Mountain also offers a unique, rustic overnight experience inside the park.

Then, wander through wetlands and pine forests, or book a tour for a personalized adventure through the refuge. Nearby camping areas with wifi, full hookups, and a self-service RV wash make it easy to head to Turnbull for a day trip. It’s open from 6am to 6pm from November to April, and until 9pm from May to October.
