Devil’s Elbow Campground is one of the most highly-regarded campgrounds in northern Idaho. It rests in Idaho Panhandle National Forest, the state’s premier area for outdoor activities. Devil’s Elbow Campground is a fur-fect spot for your next camping trip. Guests remark that the amenities at the Devil's Elbow are immaculately maintained, so you won't have to worry too much about "ruffing" it, even if the on-site restrooms are primitive. Best of all, Devil’s Elbow Campground welcomes furry paws, so you can bring your canine companion along with you!
Devil’s Elbow has 21 pawesome campsites, each of which comes with a campfire ring and grill. The nightly fee for a site is $21, and there is one group site available for $80. The regular sites can accommodate up to 8 campers, and the group site can accommodate up to 50. Some helpful extras you can find at the campground include picnic tables and drinking water.
The campground’s mixed-pine forest setting is sure to enchant you and your pooch throughout your stay. You’ll also enjoy access to the Coeur d’Alene River, where you can fish, paddle, tube, and more. You might also want to explore the nearby Coeur d’Alene River Valley, which provides excellent vantage points for wildlife viewing. The area has some trails available which also allow you and Fido to get up close and personal to the area's wildlife. The Lone Lake Trail is a popular choice for its breathtaking views. If you want to challenge yourself, try the Chico Mountain Trail — but be ready for some steep uphill climbs! Both trails are dog-friendly as long as pups stay on-leash.
Please note that the campground is situated in an active bear zone, so you should store and dispose of food very carefully. Also, there is an additional daily fee for having a second vehicle at your campsite, and the maximum number of vehicles per site is two. Finally, remember to always keep your dog leashed and to clean up after your dog to keep this furrific spot pup-friendly!
