2020 Campground Update

Kit Price Campground will be OPEN for the 2020 camping season.

Kit Price was logged during 2018 and 2019 to remove the old growth overstory trees. Unfortunately, over time as the trees aged, they became too diseased to make it feasible to leave them and still allow for safe camping. The tops had broken out of many, and they had very shallow root systems.

Renovations planned for the future include; new tables, fire rings, paved parking spurs and restrooms. All sites will be made accessible.

Kit Price is a beautiful campground overlooking the North Fork Coeur 'Alene River. Campers enjoy the benefits of the river by fishing along the banks, swimming and floating. Hiking is also a great way to see mountain views.

Natural Features: The campground is situated along the North Fork Coeur d’ Alene River at an elevation of 2,550 feet. Campsites are very open with smaller trees and brush species dominating the area. Popular Coeur d’ Alene Lake is about 65 miles west of Kit Price. Wildlife in the region include mule deer, black bear, and osprey and calliope hummingbirds.

Recreation: Tubing, swimming and kayaking on the North Fork Coeur 'Alene River are popular summer activities. Rafters like to head downstream for the class I-III rapids. Catch and release fishing for cutthroat trout is also popular.

Facilities: Amenities include picnic tables, grills, paved parking spurs, accessible vault toilets and drinking water. Kit Price does not have electric hookups.
