Blackwell Island RV Park
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 July 2013

This RV park is situated very close to the beautiful lake in Coeur d'Alene. It sit righ on the shore of the river that feeds the lake and it even has a 'private beach' where our kids spent all their time. It's very lovely and clean and super-friendly staff. Cannot recommended it highly enough!

Obviously we all look for different things in an RV park, hence these mixed reviews. We personally prefer privacy and quiet (being in our early 50's no kids no pets). We stayed here one night because we could not get into a spot at our preferred location until the next night. It was handy in terms of location, exceptionally clean facilities (washrooms and laundry) and the spaces were, we thought, quite wide. It was easy to manoeuvre as well. The staff were helpful and friendly. We did find the spots were more open than we like (but we knew this from the research and were prepared for this for a night). We deliberately kept away from the water as there were lots of children there. We did not feel the rules were over the top (in fact it's nice to know that if there are rules, they are enforced as many sites do not bother to enforce them). At $50 for the night, this was a little expensive but the amenities were of a high standard. It served our purpose and should we need to go there again, we would not hesitate. There are many private campgrounds that are way more packed in so we were happy overall.

What a great place if you can bear all the rules. No wood fires is a bit much. We have a 4 and 5 yr old daughters and didn't have a problem. They have an inground sprinkler system to keep the lush grass on each site green...this means you have to move all your stuff off the grass each night...rather annoying, but worth it for a clean campsite.

The river was great, very warm water around 75 and no current for the first week of July.

Everything about this place was very clean and well kept...and we had no problems with tyrannical keepers like some other commenters noted.

This lovely RV park is right on the water with a private beach. The sites & amenities are good, and you get a discount for paying cash. The park store is teeny-tiny and could be 3 times the size given the amount of people passing through. As an asthma sufferer, not having the soot & harmful campfire smoke was wonderful, but those wedded to the romanticism of sitting around a ring of burning wood will need to stay elsewhere.
The one downside is the number of dogs. There seemed to be a lot of them, and many of them barked on & on.

This park is close to the beautiful lake in Coeur D Alene. It is very clean and well maintained. It is not the type of park we like as your camp spots are very tight together. However for those people who are here for the water its perfect!

Room Tip: Ask for a sight facing north as it gets very hot here!

We stayed at Blackwell Island RV Park for the Couer d'Alene Iron Man weekend. Even though Hwy 95 runs by on the west side and you can see the city right across the water, it was comfortable and quiet,. It has very nice shower and bathroom facilities that are naturally overcrowded when the park is full. It is beautifully set on the Spokane River arm of Lake Couer d'Alene and the park has watercraft rentals.. The facility has walking trails and a separate pet exercise area. They have a tremendous amount of water pressure and you are cautioned to make sure you have a regulator before turning on the faucet. They have cable TV that got sixteen channels by my count. Their wireless bandwidth is purposely constrained so that people are not tempted to stream movies and music over the network. There are no outdoor fire pits and I saw no one using portables. It may matter to some that this is no longer a Good Sam park. Instead, they offer a discount if you pay cash. This place was adequate for the purpose. We might go back.

After a couple of bad stops, we found this place. Staff very friendly, helpful and informative, went out of the way to show me a couple of sites knowing that we had a few bad stops. Lady took me around on a golf cart then told me all the different things to do around the area. Would definitely stay here again. Clean park and amenities. Short walk to nice restaurant. On the water, people staying at park were very friendly. Very kid and pet friendly. We have younger children and lug neighbor so happen to have children their age and they played most of the day/night. Staff was very nice to the children too...agree with the other comment...lucky find!

Room Tip: There is not a pool or fitness center however the lake is right there and you can go for a walk/run...
