Beauty Creek Campground

Camping
Location: Coeur d'Alene Lake, Idaho
Duration: Varies
Season: Spring - Summer
Distance: N/A

Beauty Creek campground is located in the Idaho Panhandle National Forest, next to Beauty Bay on Lake Coeur d’Alene. This is a medium size campground with a creek that runs through the back. The area is home to deer, elk, wild turkeys, black bear, mountain lions and bald eagles.
 
The location makes for easy access to numerous outdoor resources including Lake Coeur d’Alene a 31,872 acre lake with opportunities for fishing and water sports, not to mention the numerous hiking and biking trails in the forests nearby.
 
The campground has 16 campsites with fire rings and tables, two restrooms and there is potable water. This campground is not handicap accessible and is classified as a tent campground because of the lack of power hookups for trailers.
 
There’s one paved road through the campground and a group shelter for use by campers. All campsites are first-come, first-served and there are areas for group camping. Check-in time is 9 am and check-out time is 8 p.m. Maximum occupancy is 100 people.

Location: Follow I-90 5 miles East of Coeur d’Alene, ID, then take exit #22 (Harrison-St. Maries) off of I-90, turn south on State Hwy 97 for 2-1/2 miles to Forest Road 438, turn east and follow paved road 1 mile to campground (there are signs).

  1. So this is my first time on your blog and I have to say it has peaked my interest. I love backpacking and biking. I am wondering though, have you actually been to all these places? and also, do you know of any good places to backpack/camp in the Kansas/Missouri area? I know it isn't exactly the most exciting terrain, but even the plains hold a certain amount of beauty.

  2. Savante,
    Yes I've been to these locations. As for the Missouri area, sorry I don't know of any, I live in the Northwest so most of what I do is over here. Good Luck

  3. I've never been to that specific campground before, I've been to Coeur d'Alene and camped for a little bit and had a great time! All I remember from that trip is being soaked from head to toe from the rain, and my "rain" Gaiters which were like bricks of water.
