Looking for a quiet place to rest and recharge? We have the perfect spot for you! This property fronts Kelso Lake, which is a motorboat free 55 acre lake located half way between Coeur d’Alene and Sandpoint, just a 15 minute drive to Silverwood Theme Park. This is the ideal spot to spend time kayaking, catching up around the campfire, fishing, and enjoying the peaceful atmosphere. If you keep your eyes peeled you may see blue heron’s, bald eagles, and if your quiet the beaver may swim past and say hello! This property is a half acre at the edge of the Kelso Lake community. This property is ideally located less than a 20 min drive to Farragut State Park, Lake Pend Oreille, Bayview, and Silverwood Theme Park. If you are trailer camping you will have to back in from the public roadway up an incline to access the spot. If you aren't comfortable backing your trailer in this spot might not be for you. We also welcome tent and van campers! There is a fire ring, a picnic table, tiki bar, decks, chairs, and an outhouse. There is a trail down to the dock where you can launch kayaks, paddle boards or canoes. New this season, 4 kayaks included with your stay!! The property is situated on the end of the lake with lily pads and beaver dens…. its beautiful but not the best swimming spot! If you want to take a dip in the lake the public boat launch is less than a half mile down the road! If you have an electric boat motor you are more than welcome to use it but no motor boats are allowed on this lake.

Worth it :)
Absolutely a small slice of heaven. Very clean and the bathroom was better than I expected. Actually quiet (except running trains- ear plugs worked). We saw so many deer and beautiful birds. I would recommend your own chairs for around the fire :) We Will definitely return!

MUST STAY PERFECT PLACE TO CAMP
Perfect site for a getaway. The layout and extras make this the perfect camping destination. Slight bugs in the evenings but with spray or candle not an issue. Lake was perfect size and on site kayaks were the cherry on top. Would definitely recommend and stay again.

Beautiful Beaver Bay
Beautiful quiet setup. 2nd time staying there, it was better than the last. The views are amazing, the wildlife is better. Beaver bay lives up to its name as we watched the family of beavers play on the rock across from the site. Ringnecked duck couples were our company every day, the chimes of the osprey as they dove for fish, bald eagles and great blue herons. Highly recommend this spot a short drive from our home in Spokane. Did I say beautiful!!

Fully enjoyed our stay here. We stayed in a camper van with one tent, much better than all the nearby offerings and had a good vibe. The lake was nice, the bar area was a nice touch, and I loved the lights that were provided for a nice ambience at night. Would definitely stay here again. Thanks Stephen!

Beautiful site! We pitched a tent, and although it was a gravel site, we had no issues as we used an axe for the pegs. The site was clean and right on the water- super peaceful little getaway and we will definitely be back if we’re in the area again :) the lights were a great touch!
