    McKays Bend Recreation Area, Myrtle, Id

    This is a BLM Campground situated on the bank of the Clearwater River a few miles east of Lewiston, Id.on Hwy 12. It's a small campground with sites for RVs, and a separate tent area. Tents are $10.00 per tent, $5.00 with OFD card. Tent area has great grass, some shade and a couple of tables and fire pits. Very nice clean showers are included. It's an easy walk down to the river and while there is no hiking trails you can put together a nice little walk in the area. I spent a few nights here in 2015 and enjoyed it. There is lots of good riding in the area and the scenery is amazing.

    Thanks for the review, Don!

    How was the traffic noise from Hwy 12?

    Dusty I did not find the traffic noise to be a problem, what traffic there was died way down towards nightfall. If your there at the right time of the year there are some nice Blackberries on the state land over near the highway.

    I'm in Myrtle Beach SC at this moment, working on my trailer. Soon as it is done I'm heading back south to Florida. Its getting "cold" here.

    On the McKays Bend subject, I stayed there a couple nights after the COG Bun Cooler in Kamiah ID and found it to be a very nice improved campground as well.
