My wife and I stayed two nights at Blackwell Island as a break during a trip to Yellowstone. We have always enjoyed Coeur d'Alene and thought it would be a nice place to spend a few days. We were right. The area is beautiful, although during the summer months the traffic in the town is horrendous!
Blackwell Island RV Park was somewhat disappointing, especially considering the cost. I was expecting more manicured sites but it was just your average place. The sites were gravel, which in itself isn't a problem, except that a previous occupant had vomited on the gravel in our site right at the spot where I had to unhook our tow vehicle. Then over the two days we were there, I occupied my time picking up pieces of glass from the site. I went to the office and let them know about both situations and, although the man behind the counter appeared concerned, and told me someone would come out to the site and check it out, no one ever showed up. It was a hot couple of days which added to the aromatics! Nuf said!
They did have a dog swimming beach which was a nice surprise, but it was waaaayyy too small. I certainly don't own a dog that can limit his enjoyment of the water or beach to such a small area, and when two or three dogs were together, they often encroached on the "human" beach. But my dog enjoyed the water, and I appreciated having the ability to let him do so.
I would probably stay again because I think the options in that part of town seem surprisingly limited, but I wish they'd take a little more care of the place.
