Nice spot just 30 minutes from Spokane! We stayed at the pull of on the left just before the large parking area by the toilet. Good Verizon reception, but we needed our booster to work on our computers. Nice trails!

Report Check-In

Great spot close to the 90 but far enough away not to hear it! There are trains in the distance but not bad. Seems a bit confusing as the sign says the resort is closed for the season however the free BLM camping on the left is not, just no campfires listed. Plenty of places to choose from, some with shade some not. Big rigs would fit but use caution as there are many pot holes on the short entry road. Below reviews has mentioned the pit toilet being dirty, but it’s the cleanest one I have ever used. Had plenty of TP and no smell! I appreciated this stay as there is hardly any place to stay without a discover pass along the 90 in eastern Washington.

Beautiful BLM land! It’s an old farm with some cool history and a birding trail, there’s cows nearby, hear the train every so often, tight gate down a gravel road with big turnaround at the end

Report Check-In

This place is only a short distance off Hwy 90. Enter through the crushed rock road and you’ll find lots of pullouts. Some are nicer and/or bigger than others. Just keep driving if you can’t find an open spot. We arrived about 5pm and several spots were already taken. It looked like several people had been there more than a couple of days.
Most sites have rock fire pits. It’s quiet but it did get windy in late May. It’s worth staying.

Report Check-In

The closed signs appear to be talking about the rv resort nearby. There are no signs about camping at all on the gate in (open) or on the sign board near the bathroom.

The pit toilet is locked saying no services due to covid but there is a port-a-potty. The port-a-potty says they try to clean it frequently but it is not to the covid standard dictated by local health code.

Slept the night, it was quiet, a little breezy, and very warm in the morning.

Report Check-In

sign says closed, but the gate was open and a 5th wheel was parked near the restrooms. also, the parking area on the main road doesn't have any posted restrictions.

Report Check-In

Nice place with a bunch of pull outs, most with fire rings. Easily accessable with 2wd in the dark. One sign says closed for the season but there is still a port a potty and there are plenty of people here.

Lovely sites along a short gravel road. Easy to get to from I-90!

Report Check-In

Nice spot. Pit toilet and portajohn. There is a train in the distance that you could hear, but not too loud.

Good Verizon service

Report Check-In

It is down a dirt road. There are a few pull out spots with fire rings although fires aren't allowed at the moment. there's also a porta potty.

Report Check-In

Sites are along the dirt road and the turnaround at the historic farm house, all nestled amongst rolling desert grassland. Low road noise from the nearby freeway, established fire rings, and a portapotty which is much cleaner than reports had me expecting. Not much shade.

Report Check-In

Pulled in late Sunday night, easy to find in the dark and happy to see I was not the only camper. There is a porta potty, not the cleanest though. Closer to the highway, so you do hear traffic and also the train. Do not leave your pets out or let them roam at night, there were coyotes very close!

Report Check-In

Nice little spot. Trains came by twice in the night. No big deal. Beautiful sunrise/set. Saw another camper pull in later. We exchanged howdy’s. Closed to camping signs posted but we weren’t bothered. Porta potty is gross. Bring a shovel.

Report Check-In

Easy access, clear road with navigable pot holes. Smattering of other visitors, not too crowded. Outhouse available, though haven’t visited. Good cell service with Verizon.

Report Check-In

great spot close enough to i90 to be convenie
nt but far enough to avoid road noise. tons of birds

Report Check-In

Pretty easy to find and a few amenities! We made it with our van conversion, no problem. I wouldn’t go with anything bigger than 25-30ish feet though because this was a busy spot when we passed through and you might have had a harder time parking. The lot space is on the smaller side!

Fishtrap Lake Resort. Awesome... straight out of 1970. Love it! Reasonable $25 a night. Full hook ups for RV’s, electric and potable water tent camping too. Flush toilets, hot and cold water, no showers, camp store with ice. Fishing is good too. The host cut me a deal for the entire month, $225
