We frequently tout our status as a “destination campground” but what does this really mean? With no Webster’s definition to be found, I offer you our opinion about how we feel here at Camp Coeur D’Alene.
Winter is a special time of year for Camp Coeur d’Alene. While our campground and cabins enjoy a snowy hibernation period we are busy plotting and planning the year ahead. 2018 marks our third year under new ownership and exciting changes are coming. One big addition will be our newly renovated and re-imagined camp store.
Here at Camp Coeur D’Alene we love the fact that our campground is unique. So many campgrounds offer cookie-cutter sites and very little individual personality. Not so at Camp CDA!
This last weekend we were lucky enough to experience a nearly full camp. A very diverse camp. Our entire tenting area was taken over by one of WSU’s fraternities, and many of our cabins by a group of cousins enjoying a family reunion. The RV sites, however, were in large part occupied by some of the most enjoyable women we’ve met, all part of a group called Sisters on the Fly.
Our tent camping sites are some of the favorites on the property. Located closest to the water and featuring numerous mature trees, the tent sites are ever popular. New for 2018 we are redesigning and reconfiguring the area to create a whole new look.
Fall is our favorite time of year here at Camp Coeur D’Alene! After a smoky couple of weeks the skies are clear and the air vibrant and fragrant with the hint of fall. The already stunning landscape becomes even more stunning with the addition of changing leaves against the beautiful blue sky.
Here at camp, we appeal to a wide variety of guests. By offering everything from tent sites to RV spots to cabins nearly everyone finds a sweet spot to call home for a bit. One thing we did not have to offer was a slightly more rustic tent camping experience, thus the initiation of rustic camping Camp Coeur D’Alene style.
For guests looking to do a bit of hiking, Camp Coeur D’Alene is a splendid location. Not only do we have a tough climb to the ridge above camp, but for an easier hike close to camp it doesn’t get much better than Mineral Ridge.
