Enjoy camping in a rural location not far from the small town of Hayden (sister to Coeur d'Alene). We have an open, wooded hillside with many tamaracks, and an grassy meadow. The property is 5 acres in total, most of which we rarely visit and would love to have folks enjoy the place. You will occasionally hear trains passing about 1 mile away, which we find enjoyable.
We are 10 minutes from Silverwood theme park, if that is your thing. The Coeur d'Alene National Forest is about 4 miles down the road, and OHVs and such can drive from here to there legally. We are also about 4-5 miles from Hayden Lake and closest boat launch. Please note this camping location spans 4 acres of a 5 acre property, with 1 acre being our residence and yard.

We were Andy's first guests! Andy was accommodating and helpful. The place was close to town. He was still working on the site when we stayed there a week or two before the eclipse so I'd bet it's improved recently. It sounded like he had big plans for the site. The stars were very visible at night and the spot was nice and secluded. The dirt road to the site was very narrow, but Andy helped guide us through the tightest part in our huge 2017 Ford 150 4x4 double cab pick-up truck. I liked that this place was about people helping people. We set up our tent in a dirt patch in the pasture that Andy had recently made with his tractor. The rest of the pasture was a little lumpy still. It didn't rain during our stay, but if it had, we probably would have taken Andy up on his offer to let us stay in the dirt-floor barn just before the pasture. I'd recommend it if you're looking for a cheap, private, convenient, and welcoming place to camp.
We loved how quiet, relaxed, and remote this property was. It was nice to pull in, set up camp, and just let the stress of life melt away. Our two dogs ran and ran and ran and had the best time possible. We highly recommend this place to hang a hammock, set up a tent, and let the worries of life fade away. This was such a great place for us to stop on our trip from Portland to Bozeman! Thank you so much for hosting us on your wonderful slice of Idaho!
We just returned from a five day stay at Tamarack Grove. My family really enjoyed the meadow, great well water, and the lonesome train whistle at night.
Andy was very helpful and friendly. He let us enjoy ourselves, but he was there when we needed him. Excellent chap, he is.
It will be fun to return to see the improvements he has planned for his property. Best of luck to you, Andy!
We had a great time at the meadow. Andy was an extremely gracious host and the location is beautiful and relaxing. We saw a couple deer come through in the early evening and we could hear a train in the distance in the early morning. We would highly recommend this spot to anyone looking for an off the radar camping spot.
Andy went above and beyond for us when we realized our battery had died in our truck because our mischievous toddler had left the light on all night. His site was clean, the space pristine, and we even saw 4 deer running through the meadows. We booked extremely last minute and he proved to be a welcoming, gracious host!
I was only here for one night but it was a great place to stay if you're looking for something private, I was the only one here during my stay. I did not meet the owner but he gave clear instructions on how to find the campsite.
