For those seeking a more "primitive" camping experience, there are certainly many choices from which to choose. There are numerous high alpine lakes which provide almost guaranteed seclusion and low impact camping. One can often just find a good place next to a stream or lake and pitch the tent or sleep under the stars. Often in the summer months the northern sky offers up one of natures most spectacular light shows- Aurora Borealis, more commonly known as the Northern Lights. The Northern Lights are truly one of the most spectacular shows nature will provide campers in the region.

For those with campers or RVs, there are some fine RV parks with full hook-ups, including water and power. Many of these are located on Lake Pend Oreille, as well as adjacent to the lake. Pump stations are at many of the parks as well. Most of the RV park hosts can offer visitors many options to make the stay enjoyable.
