Dworshak State Park
Where in the heck are we???? Sometimes I find something on a map and it looks way easier to get to than it really is. This state park is a great example. Middle of summer, nearly 100 degrees and we spend most of the day driving to get to this state park. The drive felt like it never ended and then when you are just a few miles away the road goes up up up up.... only to drop back down down down down...... I mean really steep! It really felt like we were in the middle of nowhere. We had originally booked a water view campsite, no hookups, but when we pulled in they had a back loop wooded site with hookups available and considering the temps, we decided A/C wasn't a bad idea. So we gave up the view site for site 104 in the Camas loop. The campground is big, 104 sites, about half have hookups. There are showers and flush toilets, a dump station, boat dock, and an archery range! We were not wowed by the park by any means, but it was a nice park on the water so for boating adventures it would be great - once you get the boat there! We took advantage of the water ourselves and launched the kayaks for some paddle time - we found a remote camping area on the opposite side of the reservoir too.

Getting Here: From Moscow, Idaho - Take Hwy 8 East to Troy, Idaho. Just after town take a right on Hwy 99 to Kendrick, Idaho, go through Kendrick and take a right at the Y section ~1/4 mile past town. A sign will say Dworshak State Park: 24 miles to Freeman Creek. After 1/8 mile, go right and cross bridge. Begin steep climb, County Road P1. Next you will make a left at the Lewiston Grain Silos onto Freeman Creek Road. Again there will be a Dworshak State Park sign stating the distance to Freeman Creek (10 miles) and to Three Meadows (13.5 miles). About 2 miles from the park there are steep switchbacks, & steep grade going down to the park, up to 9%!
