After having driven around the entire backside of Coeur d’Alene Lake looking for a campsite and finding nothing available, I really lucked out by getting this spot at the overflow parking lot at Camp Coeur d’Alene. I was even luckier, because the campground has since converted this sweet campspot into a dog park. I’m so fortunate to have camped here before that happened.
Kayaking up the creek directly from this campground is wonderful. We spent a few hours kayaking up to Wolf Lodge Campground then back, having to lift our kayaks over just a couple of low spots. We also kayaked the other direction towards the lake, where we had a picnic at Higgins Point and explored Blue Creek Bay.
