Beauty Creek CG, ID (USFS)


Beauty Creek CG is a small, no-frills, campground located on the east side of Lake Coeur d'Alene, a few miles from Coeur d'Alene. There are 15 sites along Beauty Creek. No hookups here, no dump station, only a vault toilet.


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

This is your first view of the CG as you turn in. That's the host's rig on the right.

We selected site 12, one of only 4 back-in RV sites.

Site 13.

Sites 14-15 comprise a double site.

This shows some of the tent sites and their parking spaces.

Three tent sites, including site 4, have shelters over their picnic tables.

Now for the amenities - this is it. There are three of these little outhouses.

Beauty Creek flows along the back of the campsites. There is a nice hiking trail that crosses the creek and climbs the ridge beyond.
