It feels so remote yet it’s less than 1.5 hours away from Spokane. This campground is small, wooded and on the Pend O’reille River. Our spot was surrounded by trees and even had a creek running through it!
Where: Albeni Cove
What I loved:
-Camping spots are very spaced out, surrounded by trees and level. It’s not a parking lot for tents! I find it weird/uncomfortable to go camping and have strangers right next to you and not having any control of their behavior.
-The swimming area is sandy and clean. It’s pretty shallow for a long depth and then sectioned off by a rope to indicate the deep area.
-Clean bathrooms with showers! Yeah!
-Fire pits are usable even during summer (fire season) and at each site.
-Picnic table at each site.
-If you forget something, Safeway is about a 5 minute drive away. We took a short trip to get the wine I forgot (celebrating our 14th wedding anniversary).
100% family friendly. Our kids spent their time swimming, splashing in the creek, hiking, looking for wildlife through binoculars, hiking, and stargazing. Not once did they complain of being bored. Amazing!
Readability: I finished a novel while we stayed there.It helped that the kids were busy! It’s a new to me series: Odd Thomas by Dean Koontz. Review here.
Repeat: We would go again. In fact, it was already our second visit.
