Campground Spotlight - Honeysuckle


One of the most beautiful and remote campgrounds located in the Idaho Panhandle National Forests is Honeysuckle. This small campground lies adjacent to the Little North Fork of the Coeur d'Alene River and has seven sites including the host site. Honeysuckle was renovated in 1994 and has paved roads and parking spurs along with amenities which include potable well water with a hand pump and vault toilets.


Campers who visit Honeysuckle enjoy activities outside of the campground including hiking, fishing, huckleberry picking, searching for the elusive morel mushroom and exploring the mountains. You can also spend your time enjoying the day at the campground by lying back in your favorite lawn chair and enjoying a good book, wading in the river on a hot day or just spending quality time with your family and friends. And if you need to stock up on supplies, should you decide to stay longer, the city of Coeur d'Alene is only 22 miles away, where you can visit and do your shopping.


To get to Honeysuckle from Coeur d'Alene, take Fernan Lake Road 268 for 11 miles, then Forest Road 612 for another 11 miles. A map can be found on Honeysuckle's page. The minimum operating season is Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend.
