“Spend a night under the stars!”
Visit and enjoy Beavertail Hill! One-half mile of the park is located on the Clark Fork River that provides terrific fishing and floating opportunities. You can camp and go on a one-hour walking nature trail through a thick canopy of cottonwoods. There are interpretive programs in the amphitheatre on Friday evenings during the summer. The park has an elevation of 3,615 feet and is 65 acres. Boating is carry-in only. There are 28 developed campsites and tipi rentals. Now available for rent are two tipis. The two Sioux-style tipis at Beavertail Hill are 18 feet in size and can comfortably sleep six-eight people. The canvas tipis have no furnishings, but do have indoor-outdoor carpeting and a picnic table and fire grill located outside. Existing ADA Level: Easy Accessibility.
A wonderful jewel. The campsites are adjacent to the Clark Fork river where you can tube the river, sit on the beach, look for opals or other pretty rocks, enjoy the beautiful scenery.
We choose this spot because it was about 8 hours outside of Seattle, our first stop on our trip. It's conveniently just off of I-5, and if you get a good spot, then the river and rocks and whatnot are all gorgeous. But, for us, we rolled in and couldn't find our spot because the ranger was leading an educational talk pretty much IN our spot. Turns out we were right next to a meeting area. We didn't want to set up and make noise or have them watch us, so we just sat awkwardly for awhile. We could hear the traffic on I-5 until about midnight, and then there's a train which did seem to stop from 12 to 5am or so. The bathrooms were fabulous, mostly because they were actual toilets and sinks. Very clean, smelled pleasant enough. It's a small campground which was nice, too. OH, and you can buy firewood there, too. Out of a giant machine that only takes quarters (although there is a change machine but make sure you have 1's or 5's; sure, it breaks a $10, but then you have $6 in quarters in your car). It wasn't bad for a one-night stop.
