Kit Price Campground Reopens on Memorial Day Weekend

Share this article

A popular campground located on the upper Coeur d’Alene River (Idaho) is reopening with new infrastructure made possible by the funding from the state and the federal Great American Outdoors Act.

According to a report, Kit Price Campground, located along the North Fork of the Coeur d’Alene River, about 26 miles north of Interstate 90, has been shut since 2018. It is reopening on Memorial Day weekend.

The campground was shut down to address the widespread hazard of trees resulting from naturally occurring fungi and root diseases and trees dying during an extreme drought in 2015.

Last year, the campground remained closed while it underwent a total remodel and renovation worth more than $1 million through a grant provided by the Idaho Department of Parks and Recreation and funds received from the federal Great American Outdoors Act.

Improvements include fire rings, picnic tables, restrooms, shade structures, and water holding tanks.

Roads and sites have been widened to accommodate recreational vehicles, extra parking, and to meet accessibility requirements.

The campground will be closed for one week in July to complete the chip seal work on the road surfaces, which were not completed last year due to weather constraints.

The Forest Service has already replanted more than 1,000 trees within the campground and plans to plant a few thousand more.
