10 Family Camping Hotspots


Coeur D'Alene, Idaho

Coeur D'Alene sits just 40 miles east of Spokane, Wash., on the Idaho side of the border. This small town has earned a big reputation for its stunning natural beauty thanks to its main attraction, Lake Coeur D'Alene.

World-class water recreation -- boating, kayaking, fishing, water skiing, wakeboarding, riding on seaplanes, and whitewater rafting at nearby rivers and much more -- draws visitors from all over the state and beyond. There are nearly a dozen campgrounds and RV parks in the area, and each offers something different, so if you're after cabins and laundry facilities or simply showers and bathrooms, do your research before booking a site. Some campgrounds even offer discounted tickets to the local theme park.
