Riley Creek Campground, Idaho

I’ve been enjoying exploring more areas this summer. I came upon this great recreational area and campground. It is located about 15 min. east of Newport, WA and 15 min. west of Sandpoint, ID, along the Pend Oreille River. It opened May 11th this year and closes Sept. 28th. Dates are a little different each year.
I took some photos with my Samsung camera.

The campground is on kind of a peninsula, so the water is on both sides of it. It is free to visit for the day, offering many activities. There is a little town close by for any needed supplies.

There are 2 large picnic areas that can be reserved.

There are paved and dirt trails for walking and biking.

There is a playground.

There is an amphitheater for lectures and interpretive programs. Just down below this is one of the fishing docks.

There is a basketball court, a beach volleyball court, horseshoe pits and a large grass field for other sports and games.

There is a swimming area set off in the inlet.

There are boat launches, a check in station with wood for purchase, 67 campsites with picnic benches with a concrete slab, electrical and water hookups and barbecue set ups, a dump station and trash pick up. Campers are allowed to have as many tents as fit in the designated camping spot. So you can see there is lots to do there for a day or months 🙂
