Named one of the best Hipcamps to visit in 2023.
Note: We have a Bonners Ferry, ID mailing address but our physical location is approximately 30 miles North of Bonners Ferry and 1 mile South of Eastport, ID. We are a mile South of the Canadian Border just off US 95, right on the Moyie River. NEW FOR 2023 SEASON - Vastly new and improved Outhouse(Vault type) at each site. We have also added potable well water at the cabin with a watershed equipped with a sink and spigot. No more need to haul water from our host cabin ! You are in a forest on land shaped by the last Ice Age, The forest has nurtured generations of of wildlife including majestic birds of prey. It sustained the Kootenai People before borders separated their lands. It saw determined miners pass this way seeking their fortune in gold from British Columbia. This forest supplied timber to build railroads and homes for families in the western migration. Our family is the current steward of this forest and it is our wish to respectfully share its beauty and observe its wildlife with your family and friends! Our Forest is surrounded by Kaniksu National Forest which is managed by the United States Forest Service (USFS) as part of the Idaho Panhandle. National Forest.. The Moyie River ( say Moy-yay) has headwaters at Moyie Lake in British Columbia and feeds into the Kootenai River (say Koo-ten-e) just East of Bonners Ferry. The Moyie River is 95 miles long. The area is private, so there is no view of the neighbors. You’ll have a broken view of the Host’s Cabin. Camp is situated on 15.4 acres of Certified Family Forest. If you hear the rumble of a train at night, it's because the Union Pacific passes along the opposite edge of the property from the campsite. There is no mobile phone service at the campsite .

Perfect Way to End Summer
This was the perfect way to end the summer at Paul's cabin! We were able to really enjoy the land just listening to the river and watching the wildlife all around us. Deers were seen crossing the river and the sounds of the birds, frogs, and crickets made it so peaceful for us. The cabin had everything we needed along with the nice fire pit area and covered picnic area. We loved cooking our meals over the fire pit as it made everything taste sooo good (wood grilled steaks.... yum!). The weather cooled down but that didn't stop our 11 year old and dog from playing in the river. My husband was able to make this visit and was pleasantly surprised with how nice the shower room was (it really is both clean and beautiful) and being a Border Patrol Agent in the area he was finally able to enjoy all Bonner's Ferry had to offer leisurely. Thank you Paul for hosting us again! We really enjoyed our stay and like others, we will be back again!

Cedar Grove Tent Campsite
We loved camping at Paul’s hip camp. It was so peaceful cozy and nestled up right beside a little creek that made for great ambiance at night. Great clean amenities, a vault style toilet that was very clean. A shower house with hot water that was super cute. Firewood stacked up for you. Also, there was a cute covered area with a picnic table, bear box and grill. That turned out very helpful for one of the days that was raining. 10/10 I would definitely recommend!
