The quiet mountain town of Orofino, Idaho likely isn't one of the first places you think of when planning a family vacation, but the fact that it is often overlooked by vacationers is what makes this place so wonderful for relaxing family getaways and honeymoons. Tucked amidst the hills of Orofino is Clearwater Crossing RV Park, an adorable little campground that embraces the natural beauty of this mountain landscape.
The grounds support both tent and RV camping, but no matter which type you choose, your site is guaranteed to have plenty of shade, wifi, a picnic table, and access to hot showers and modern restrooms. RV sites come in back-in or pull-through varieties and feature full hookups for 30 and 50 amp rigs. Their affordable prices are what makes Clearwater Crossing the most paw-pular spot in town for RVers, with daily rates ranging from just $29 to $40 depending on site type. Tent sites go for just $18 per night.
Another reason packs choose Clearwater over their competitors is that they allow dogs of all breeds and sizes, a refreshing change from other campgrounds who implement breed-specific pet policies. Pet-loving guests are asked to kindly pick up after their pups and keep them leashed while sniffing out the grounds.
This campground sits on the edge of the Clearwater River, making it great for water-loving pooches and humans looking to catch some dinner! Nearby Dworshak Dam and Reservoir is another fabulous fishing hole and also makes for a scenic spot for a romantic picnic! Not everyone likes to wade in flowing water -- thankfully, the park has an on-site pool where you can dip your toes if natural water isn't your thing.
Travelers looking for non-stop nightlife, amusement parks, and packed beaches should probably look elsewhere, but those who crave crisp clean air and the quiet serenity of the wilderness are sure to appreciate the laid-back atmosphere that makes Clearwater Crossing so loved by its visitors.
