Recently stayed in the Gilmore loop at this huge state park and we had an excellent time. Our camp hosts made the trip quite memorable as they were very personable and were willing to give us advice about anything to do with the area. The sites were large and well maintained in our loop and the bathrooms and showers were... More

Beautiful, clean... Very nice campground !! Loved feeding the little chipmunks! The Beaver Beach Bay swimming area was so inviting and couldn't believe all of the boats at the lake . Enjoyed strolling thru the museum...had no idea the history of this area

First off if you're tent camping make sure you have a small tent and look at pad sizes at the campsites. Lots of RV areas. Very small camp sites as well. They do have decent bathrooms and showers that are free. They do sell camp fire wood at the main office and host sites. Fresh water spouts around the campground... More

The Whitetail Campground was perfect for the five nights we stayed this month. Campsites are clean and well maintained. Most sites are quite private from each other, and not too far from the water spigot or the waste water drain. Even though the campground was full on Saturday night, it was quiet and pleasant. The bathrooms and shower rooms are... More

We were going to stay here for 2 days and ended up booking 4 nights. This place is amazing for hiking, walking down to the beach, and exploring the area. I had no idea that the military had such a big place here during world war 2. Great area.

We really enjoyed camping in Farragut State Park! We chose the campground here so that we could easily explore Sandpoint (for the classic car show) and Coeur d'Alene. I was concerned that the campground would be too large and busy for us, but we booked a really private campsite in the Whitetail loop (site 27) and barely saw any other... More

I have been to this park over a dozen times. It is a peaceful place that is well run and beautiful. There are great places to swim and playgrounds for the children. I have never had an incident with fellow campers. In other camping experiences, there have been people who are noisy or drunk, but everyone I have encountered here... More

Farragut has great campsites and a nice little beach for swimming. There are hikes and plenty of places to ride bikes. The bathrooms are well maintained. I don't know if ALL the sites are like this, but ours and our friends' sites were quite private with a lot of vegetation acting as a natural border.

I have spent two summer vacations sailing on Lake Pend Oreille and exploring the areas around Bay View. I am from Arizona so this is a trek. The area is beautiful. Hiking in Farragut is wonderful with lush vegetation and views of the lake. The water is cold but locals don't seem to mind especially in one of the shallow... More

We live close by so we go to Farragut for a change of scenery a couple of times a year. Beaver Bay Beach is my favorite for family visits - it's not as crowded as Coeur d'Alene sometimes gets and it has an "un-urbanized" feel to it. My 5 year old's imagination runs wild hiking the trails and looking for... More
