We have received 2 very negative comments about this campground.

Beauty Creek Campground is located on Beauty Creek just before it empties into Coeur d'Alene Lake. It is set on a meadow along the creek. The area is heavily forested except for the meadow which is mowed short like a lawn. Beauty Creek is very small and was only a trickle in late June when we visited.

Campsites: There are 19 campsites, sites 1 thru 8 are tent camping only and set on an open meadow. Site 9 is a back with covered table, 10 you park along the road. 11 is a back in site with a cement pad. 15 is a back in site which is secluded and roomy. 16 is smaller but secluded and by the creek. 17 has a double width parking but single table. Each site has a picnic table and fire pit with attached grate. Site 2, 4, 9 and 12 had a cover for their table.

Host on Site: Yes, they were very helpful.

Water: There is a hand pump equipped well which is tested regularly. The water was cold but discolored. I would bring my own drinking water.

Garbage Services: Yes, we observed both a dumpster and garbage cans.

Electricity Available: No.

Restroom: There was only one outhouse which was clean, deodorized and well stocked. If you are camping in sites 16 to the end of the campground it will be a good walk to the outhouse as it is located on on the far end of Beauty Creek Campground.

Handicap Accessible: The outhouse is handicap accessible.

Firewood: Firewood is available for purchase at the camp host for $7.00 per bundle. Check it out in the "host" picture.

Pets: Pets are allowed but must be kept on a leash.

Picnic Area: No, but there is one at Mineral Ridge Scenic Area about a mile north.

Recreation: Camping, hiking, boating and fishing would be the main recreational activities.

Fishing: Lake Coeur d'Alene is just down the road and there is boat access at Mineral Ridge Public Boat Launch. Check the fishing regulations here.

Boating: See Fishing.
