First time Idaho trip. Have kids and small dogs, 27 foot C class, Looking for recommendations for camping. We like national forest setting, lakes/rivers rather than condo camping. we will be travelling from California northern and going up though Oregon and across. Just would like a taste of Idaho, and have some relaxing places to camp. Please shout out too if there are any must see places. We will not be going to southern Idaho. Many thanks!

Coeur d Alene, Wallace, Farragut State Park, Sandpoint, are but a few places to stop. Coeur d Alene has wonderful artsy stuff and great food (I know for I eat), Wallace has mining history and a kind of wild west downtown atmosphere, Farragut has beautiful camping, a lake carved by glaciers, and much naval history. Yep, Naval history. There are still subs in the lake doing training.
Come on up. We did and never left.

The Panhandle is a water wonderland.
The central Batholith is the Land of Big Mountains.
Take your pick.
In the summer forget about the Snake River Plain because it is too dang hot.

What part of Idaho do you plan to visit? Boise area, Pocatello area, or Coeur d Alene area? All different options.

If you are going from Oregon into a taste of ID, you are hitting the Boise area, probably not as much fun as other areas unless you are willing to drive north towards Stanley or RedFish Lake.

Boondocking or looking for a camp ground with power and water?

I'm in here a second time; Southern Idaho seems to be experiencing a second hit of the virus. We're possibly heading South in a few days and are planning to just git and go through Southern ID.
Northern Idaho doesn't have too big an issue as of yet. Most everything is open with distant socializing. Not much in the way of protesting going on either.
A side note on our town; we have a liquor store, a gun store, a sandwich shop, and a chiropractor in the same building-all essential-and the gun store's tele number begins with 666. Now, how are ya gonna beat that?
Come on up, the area is great.

Thank you all for all the help, thinking of going to Lake Cascade first and Mc Call and working way up but probably not Coeur d Alene due to time constraints!. We dont want to be just driving all day to try to see everything. But want to do another trip to explore Coeur d Alene area next time. Mostly national forest or state parks but will need and occasional full hook up night due to small holding tanks on the C Class. Blazing Zippers that is so funny the gun store telephone number! We are in the bay area CA and we are having an increase too but we are also having a lot of protesting too! I have the visit Idaho book too. Thank you all very much, I am making note of all the places you all have suggested!
