Here at camp, we love nothing more than days spent watching our guests enjoy themselves at camp. This year, in particular, family reunions are proving to be extremely popular and in the season ahead the campground will be filled with campers, young and old, experiencing memories that will last a lifetime.
Camp Cooking. There is almost nothing like enjoying a meal surrounded by nature. Some days it is a joy to spend a lazy afternoon around a Dutch Oven or planning a more elaborate dinner. But, let’s be honest, many days at camp are filled with water fun, outdoor activities, sun, and perhaps day drinking and it’s great to have a few quick and delicious meals in your repertoire. Enter one of the best chicken dishes you will ever taste.
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.
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 camping is some of the best out there. Days are often sunny and bright, nights crisp and cool. This fun has been dampened a bit in recent weeks with the stage 2 fire ban in effect. No more. Free firewood once more reigns at Camp Coeur D’Alene!
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.
The harsh winter of 2016-2017 wreaked havoc on the tiles surrounding Camp Coeur D’Alene’s swimming pool. Days and weeks went by as we waited on contractors and anxiously fretted about it getting completed in time for guests to enjoy it.
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.
