Springy Point Campground is situated amid firs, cedars and pines overlooking the Pend Oreille River with views of the Cabinet and Selkirk Mountains.

The city of Sandpoint is just a short trip across the water and offers a marina, parks and plenty of sightseeing opportunities.

Natural Features:

Lake Pend Oreille is a glacier-carved lake surrounded by scenic mountains in the northern Idaho Panhandle. It is one of the largest and deepest natural lakes in the western United States with depths plunging more than 1,200 ft., in some areas.

The area around the Lake is the traditional home of the Kalispell Indians. French settlers named the area "Pend Oreille," which means "ear pendant," after observing the large shell earrings worn by the Kalispell people.


Water sports are the most popular activity at Springy Point, and with a boat ramp located on-site, kayaking, canoeing, water skiing, jet skiing and fishing are never far out of reach.

A large swimming area provides visitors with comfortable access to river's clear, clean waters.

Visitors may also enjoy biking or hiking across the Long Bridge into the town of Sandpoint for a change of scenery or stroll around town.

For the bird watchers or moose watchers, a short trip up to the Pack River Area to watch wildlife provides a great day trip.


Springy Point Campground offers 38 shady campsites near the water. 37 are standard non-electric, with one walk-to site. Amenities include drinking water, flush toilets and showers.

Nearby Attractions:

The Albeni Falls Visitor Center features exhibits on the history of the dam and the natural features of the area, with tours of the dam given daily during the summer.
