We are a mile South of the Canadian Border just off US 95. 2024 SEASON INFO - Please note, due to below freezing nighttime temps it is likely our shower facility and on-site cabin water (other water available) will not be reopened until May15. We strive to reopen it as early as Mother Nature allows but can’t guarantee those amenities until mid May. New for 2024 we will have a swing set down by the river below the campsite. It is a common use amenity open to River Cabin and Campsite guests. Adult supervision is required. Thank you. 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 campsites. There is no mobile phone service at the campsite .

Iron Horse Forest River Cabin
AMAZING slice of heaven!!!
This is such a beautiful hidden gem that has everything you need for this calm and peaceful getaway. The cabin is perfect as it has all the amenities you could need in the wilderness! Although we came on the off season when the full amenities of the shower were already winterized (which Paul had already let us know), we didn’t let that stop us from enjoying all there is out here! Paul is an amazing host who really has a wonderful set up! Cozying up by the fire pit that’s riverside was so amazing, too! We even saw a deer in the river right near where we were! We hope other Hipcampers have so much fun here just as we did! Thanks for sharing this little peace of Heaven with us Paul!

A good place to unplug
It's just right. Has some internet in case of emergencies and you need to text someone, but not enough to stream TikTok. Otherwise, you feel way out there, which is what we wanted. The dog loves the place, and the fire pit next to the river is awesome. Looking forward to staying there again.

Beautiful Surroundings
This was a perfect camp site. Situated on the Moyie river not far from the Canadian border, many sites to see in a picturesque setting. Paul the host was terrific, and always communicated well when asked questions on line. We will return, no doubt.
