The Old Weber Farm

4 sites · RVs, Tents13 acres · Cheney, WA
Owned the last 100 years by only two families. The Weber family was the last to own and operate the farm for over 60 years. House was built in 1917 and the barn was added in 1925. Legend has it Bing Crosby sang in the barn himself after a long summer bucking bales in Cheney. We are close to Turnbull Wildlife Park and a few local fishing lakes: badger lake, williams lake, and amber lake. The town of Cheney is a great place to stock up and bicycle the fish lake trail.

Seven Stars Alpaca Ranch LLC

3 sites · RVs40 acres · Coeur D'alene, ID
We do not provide hook-ups but there is a gas station not far from the ranch that provides clean-outs. We provide excellent clean water and an extension cord. We also provide some of the friendliest cutest animals to visit. This is self-check-in so find your clearly marked site and park. You are on a livestock working ranch with well taken care of animals. We will greet you when we are able do so. We purchased this wonderful 40 acre ranch in our retirement years. We had never done ranching or farming before and wanted a new experience with this gift called life. Being long time hard working Alaskans and living the Alaskan Adventure we could see no reason to be in our golden years and not have another adventure. Our many different animals provide us with entertainment and a purpose. Mini Donkeys asking for a bum rub and braying for breakfast always brings a smile. Alpacas, Llamas and Valais Black Nose Sheep, provides us with beautiful rugs from their own fiber that we sell in the Seven Stars Store. The rest of the hats, gloves, blankets and wonderful socks come from Peru. Mini horses that love to be brushed and even have their hair braided all make for an unusual experience. Our business is run on an honor system, and we ask that you practice the following: Be Good Stewards Of The Animals Be Good Stewards Of The Land Be Good Stewards Of The People Who Cross Your Path On Their Journey If you are looking for an animal adventure we might be a great spot for you as our business is how we take care of all of our friends on the Seven Stars Ranch. We welcome you, Sonia, Andy, and the 77 heartbeats

Poleline Pines

1 site · RV, Tent5 acres · Post Falls, ID
Easy access from I 90 but not nearly close enough to hear it. Campsite sits 500-600 feet off a county road with a easy driveway and plenty of turn around space. It's a basically level area with several options for how to park. Large pine trees provide shade but let plenty of light through. There is filtered road noise, but the crickets and coyotes are the main thing you'll hear at night.

The best camping near McCroskey State Park guide

Overview

About

McCroskey Park, known in the longhand as Mary Minerva McCroskey State Park, was dedicated in the 1950's to the hard-scrabble women of the pioneer days. Don your bonnet and live out your Little House on the Prairie fantasies here, where horseback riding and wildflower viewing are complimented by reading a hardback by the crackling fire. The 18-mile long Skyline Drive gives a window into some of the prairie's beautiful vistas and is the perfect spot to bring your mountain bike for a spin. Whether you're there to catch sight of some wild moose and black bear, or just to smell the sweet, fresh air, you'll feel like a pioneer after your stay, guaranteed.

Notable campgrounds

  • Fireplace Campground: Cozy up by the fire rings at this campground surrounded by dense cedar forests.
  • Mission Mountain Campground: Wake up to breathtaking views and easy access to potable water and scenic trails.
  • Redtail Campground: Ideal for nature lovers, this site offers a serene setting and vault toilets for a comfortable stay.

Tips for snagging a campsite

  • Book early to secure your spot, as campgrounds fill up quickly during peak seasons.
  • Consider visiting during the weekdays for better availability and a quieter experience.
  • Check for cancellations regularly, as plans change and spots may open up.
  • Explore nearby camping options if McCroskey State Park is fully booked.

When to go

The best time to visit McCroskey State Park is from late spring to early fall when the weather is mild and all facilities are operational. Winter months can be challenging due to snowed-in roads and limited access.

Know before you go

  • Remember to pack out your trash, as there is no garbage service in the park.
  • Running water is only available seasonally, so plan accordingly.
  • Some roads are gravel and may not be suitable for very wide or long vehicles.
  • Trail etiquette is important; share the space with bikers, hikers, and horseback riders.
