We came east on I-90 from Coeur d'Alene, got off onto ID-97 at exit 22, and followed the shore line around Lake Coeur d'Alene to Beauty Bay. There are no signs to indicate the campground; the turn onto Beauty Creek Road is just before a small bridge at the head of Beauty Bay.

Date of visit: Jun 2008
