Kit Price is a beautiful campground overlooking the North Fork Coeur d’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.
“Past visitors may notice a change in the appearance and openness in the park due recent removal of dead and diseased trees. This was done to improve safety for visitors and to improve forest health. New tree plantings are currently being planned to replace some of those lost and to increase the natural appearance of the campground for years to come. Please visit our website for additional information.”
Tubing, swimming and kayaking on the North Fork Coeur d’Alene River are popular summertime activities. Rafters like to head downstream for the class I-III rapids. Catch and release fishing for cutthroat trout is also popular.
