My first campground stop of the Great Eco-friendly Summer Road Trip is just a stopover for us.
Tip #1: Do not overestimate how quickly you will travel with three small children. It only makes for grumpiness all around.
Tip #2: Unless you plan to enjoy the attractions of a campground (ie if you have the time) of any location, don’t worry about venturing off the beaten path. This may only lead to more grumpiness.
Farragut State Park is north of Coeur d’Alene in the Idaho Panhandle. This was the trickiest site I will hopefully have to maneuver my little teardrop trailer into. It was a nice little campground though and I do wish we could have explored more of what the park had to offer.
Isn’t it cute? It is a tight squeeze for the four of us, but it offers protection (at least peace of mind) and because of its small size the reduction of gas mileage is slight, especially compared to a “real” RV.
Next stop, Montana!
