Stopped by the Visitor Center to get information on the Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes. The staff there was extremely helpful and friendly. The center is very nice, has many informational brochures, and clean bathrooms! The only problem I had was getting there! My GPS didn't take me to the correct place, so I relied on road signs. There was one sign on Rt 5 that identified the Heyburn State Park Visitor Center as being "straight ahead" -- but no subsequent sign that said to turn onto Chatcolet Road (which I only later found out). The Center is also known as the Rick Brown Memorial Visitors Center. (Perhaps I need to get a better GPS!). Hopefully this information will be helpful to someone!

We stayed 4 days in the Rocky Point Cottage, an old cabin. Very nicely painted interior for the very old 1930 remodeled and restored house cabin called Rocky Point Cottage. Problem is that Heyburn State Park knows how old and poorly restored this cottage is so they do not show photos inside the cottage. Why? The outside cottage photo is old (will discuss later). Impressed with cooking on a new stove and washing in a new washer! We thought the cottage was pretty clean first walking in, but walking in on the kitchen floor was sticky and dirty. A little while later the same evening opening the kitchen drawers (all 8 of them) had mouse poops scattered in everyone & on/around the utensils! I was livid and in a panic! I took photos and cleaned every single piece of silverware, cooking utensil, plate, bowls, pots and pans; everything! It took me close to 3 - 4 hours to wash everything. It took me another hour to sweep and mop the sticky floor. The next morning I left a message about the house having mice at the State Park office and finally received a call back close to noon. The park rangers delivered and placed these 2 sticky tray mouse catchers into the bottom of a drawer and the back of kitchen counter behind the toaster. The next morning there were mice poops again on the stove and the kitchen counter. I know it is a cabin, but we've stayed in well over 2 dozen cabins in our travels (state parks and private) they are always cleaned of rodent activity and of spiders! This cabin was riddled with spiders. I am still waking up with nightmares after getting up early and walking into a fully made spider web in the doorway from our bedroom to the living room the first morning we were there! The spider web was made through the night!
I asked our son to bring some indoor spider spray with him to the house (I used soapy water to go over the counters and rewash all the utensils in very hot Lysol liquid in water for disinfecting using safety health instructions). The box for the mouse sticky trays stated there is no scent of food or poison in the sticky goo. After 2 nights, still poop all over the counter and no mice/mouse in these passive traps, my husband told me to place a marshmallow into one tray and a piece of cheese in middle of the other. The 3rd and last morning, there was no mouse poop on the counters, but interestingly I baked cookies in the oven the night before. Perhaps this drove away the rodents for a day or two. FYI we cleaned and took photos of this place leaving it cleaner than we arrived!
Our trip was pretty much ruined by our experience staying in one of their cabins there. Our son listened his first night there that the walls and above crawl space of our cabin, he could hear them all night long, the sound of mice scurrying around and squeaking. The first morning, we noticed that there were some mouse droppings along the interior walls as well as what was found inside the drawers the night before. These types of conditions aren't sanitary. But if you don't mind mice and spiders this is your 'gem of a cabin' to stay!

Nice camp site -- just better maintenance needed -- rather than camp personnel -- just driving around in trucks !!

More places to drop off garbage --more cans needed -- why not in different places on site -- the park personnel seem to have time to drive everywhere -- they could be picking up garbage from cans !!

This was a great campground with full hook up sites. Bathrooms/showers were very clean. Nice hiking and biking trails nearby. We were in the Hawley's Landing campground. There is some road and train noise but it didn't affect us. Staff was very helpful whenever we stopped to ask questions. Would definitely stay here again if in this area.

This is our favorite camping site in the Coeur D'Alene-Moscow-Lewiston area, a nice distance from town. It helpfully offers multiple campgrounds for people who want different experiences; the Hawley Landing campground is louder and busier and closer to the lake, while Chatcolet is more isolated and quiet (but doesn't accommodate large trailers/RVs). We haven't stayed in the third, no-reservations campsite.
Specifics on some good spots to shoot for for tent campers:
In Hawley's Landing, we've stayed in tent spots 9, 10, and 3. Spots 5-10 are all walk-ins in the same somewhat open area and can be awkwardly close to each other; 10 and 5 are the most private, but 10 can be very windy. 8 and 10 have the bests lake view. 1-4 are very nice and quite private, especially 3. I don't recommend tenting on either of the other loops, they're quite crowded with large RVs.
In Chatcolet, pay close attention to the stated tent pad sizes - many of the spots have (by modern standards) very small areas flat enough for tents. Nearly every spot makes up for it with snug, private settings or spectacular views. We love spots 131 and 133 especially - 131 does not have as much of a view as the map suggests, but is remarkably cozy. We were able to just barely squeeze a 10'-square tent into 131.
Overall, both campgrounds have great access to the lake and local trails, and which is better for you is a function of your personal tastes.

We stayed 3 nights in the Benewah campground. Trees and terrain created privacy, bathrooms were very clean and free hot showers!!

We were in a camper van that required no hook ups and we backed into our spot easily. We had a citronella candle that kept the bugs away. We were out biking every day. Most campers had kayaks or boats and were on the lake.

This is a big state park with multiple campgrounds. We drove around to access the Trail of the Coeur d’Alene via another entrance.

Tip – Conkling Marina to the NW along the lake serves a great breakfast!

The Ugly:
So this review is focused on the Benewah loop campground, which is 7 miles east of the Welcome Center. We reserved our camp site on Reserve America with no issues. However, upon arriving, learned that our site, #222, which on the map showed being the last RV site in the loop (our friends were in the loop in tents) turned out to be on a very tight curve of the dirt road, with a huge hump in the narrow drive, which could only be backed into. The camp host was amazing and immediately said "I"m so sorry they rented you that space, you are not likely going to be able to get your camper in" (small 18' camper) and suggested solutions if we could not. Luckily my husband is a "boss" CDL with tons of experience moving equipment. He got the camper in, but *had* to use the drive of the 'across the path' camp site, that fortunately didn't have anyone parked in it. We had to make sure we left at a time before the next folks arrived for the same reason and camper had to be BACKED OUT of the loop road all the way to the shower. This might sound like a dramatic telling, but understand these Benewah Camp sites are TIGHTLY packed and almost each site features a steep pull in with only enough flat space to pop your tent and use the picnic table. We had to leave our rig attached to the trailer, because the angle would not have allowed us to hook BACK up when time to leave. A few are roomier but some even have to walk a path past other's picnic tables to get to yours. The park ranger stopped and said "Props to you, I can't believe you were able to get that trailer in there!" The last guy who tried with a pop up tent trailer took out the site number pole.

The Bad:
Zero hook ups of any kind on the left (west) loop. There is a small loop for full size RV with hook up near the rest rooms. We thought RV site meant hook ups, so didn't bring our generator. No biggie, but just an added disappoinment. Also, there is no nice swimming area. There is an area other's will say you 'can' swim on the walking trail, but if you don't like swimming in a swamp, you won't enjoy it.

The 'cliff's edge' tent sites (outer/left side of the loop) have great views, but the sun will be a challenge when setting as its over the water and half your party will be facing it when sitting (in summer that's until 8:30 pm or better).

You WILL hear every snorer in the loop, a couple of which are going to be right next to you or right our your tent door. ... so expect stereo snore fest, unless you bring already downloaded music/headphones. No cell reception on site 222, so couldn't stream my youtube fan music to sleep. Sites really have little privacy, unless you choose the ones you have to walk to from your car park, in which case you'll be walking past other's having dinner or fighting over who forgot the bug spray.

Bring bug spray - we were all eaten up, even with the use of OFF, with large swelling mosquito bites (my hubby got none, so you know if you're a mosquito magnet, put the off on first before you go outside and reapply often).

All tent sites are a mix of sandy dusty dirt, gravel, pine needles. There is not enough room to play badminton, corn hole, or really any group/team games (maybe frisbee in the road).

The Good:
Fire pits are good, ours was quite small, other's had bigger ring types. Picnic tables are aluminum and easy to move. Fire wood packs are readily available. We weren't charged the $5 entry fee when we checked in for camping. Camp hosts let us park in the road and stay until we felt like leaving (there is also overflow parking 100 yards down the road for boats or extra cars) so we could enjoy our friends a little longer, but get our camper out before others arrived.

Camp host(s) were phenomenal, friendly, informative, and easy going. Bathrooms are close enough its not a pain to walk to them. Bathrooms were clean with three stalls in women's. Also have shower in differnt room, I didn't see those.

There is an RV circle for largerer rigs with larger gravel hanging out areas and the paved road makes a great loop for kids to bike.

There is no 'through' road traffic, so you are at the end of the road, enough away from Hwy 5 you don't hear much traffic (will hear some across the water where Hwy 5 goes around).

There is a walking/biking path 0.8 of a mile to the railroad tracks (THEY ARE IN USE) but apparently trains are not seen much on the weekends. There is a tunnel through the hill you can walk through (at your own risk) and you can fish off the tresselled bridge (at your own risk). The nice part is it is a lovely walk, easy for even smaller kids, and lots of paths from it to the tent sites, so you have options for how to get on and off the path. It was fun and a great way for the kids (we had 13 between 9-16) to spend time riding or walking and exploring. The path is mostly explosed in the heat of the day, so you will get warm and need water.

Also lots of paths to explore from the tent sites, most going down to the water or directly to the path.

The first night, no campers complained about our noisy happy birthday singing and kids chatting after 10. The second night, new batch of campers did.

So, if you want rustic, trees, steep paths, and not much to do but sit around and enjoy your friends/family, it's a great secluded place with enough to entertain for one weekend. The Trail of the CDAs parking is 8.5 miles away, but there is a very nice space to swim there and plenty of parking space for large rigs with trailers to go enjoy the trail or swim.

Everyone else has covered the trail, I'll just add that in heat of the day, it's 100% sun very little shade and head wind picks up the last 4 miles to Harrison. It's almost 8 miles to Harrison one way, so consider that with littles. There are a few shade spots to rest, but no outlet to get off the trail and return if you have emergency or overheated kids half way from the bridge to Harrison (unlike the Cenn Trail in Spokane where there are tons of outlets to civilization every mile or so). There are some homes, so you could possibly get help that way.

Beautiful place. Not sure it would be my first pick in the future, but it worked out fine.

The bike trail was easily accessed from the Chatcolet campground, and the 8 mile ride to Harrison was pleasant. No steep grades, smooth riding. There were alot of families riding. Stopped in Harrison for a brew, then went back to park just in time to see sun set from the bridge.

Heyburn State Park is a great spot for summer adventure for the entire family. Fun camping, hiking and well marked swimming areas in the park. The park is also on The Trial of the Coeur d'Alenes, which is a 72 mile paved trial (rails to trails) which is fairly flat and an easy ride for all fitness levels. A short 5 - 7 mile ride in either direction takes you to nearby towns, including the resort town of Harrison on Lake CDL with a great coffee and ice cream shop. The bike trail is very scenic and remote on the Heyburn State Park end. We saw moose and wild turkeys while biking.

There are several hikes there of different length and a great place for the kids and dogs to swim.

Nice day, nice swim. I usually hike but didn't on this day
