RVers with any size, self-contained RV enjoy a vacation rental experience rather than a crowded park at this private, quiet site with full hookups, a fire pit and outdoor hot tub on a 10-plus acre waterfront estate on Lake Pend Oreille just minutes from the resort town of Sandpoint, Idaho. RVers enjoy stunning lake views and easy access to a public boat dock and a private beach. An adjacent bell tent offers a chance for group camping. The site has 50 amp service, well water, septic and more!
Bring your RV of any type (as long as it has its own bathroom) or size, as this site will accommodate up to a motor coach with tip-outs and 50 amp service. The RV site's location is a private spot overlooking Lake Pend Oreille and just a couple minutes walk away from the water. Hookups are on-site with a frost-free hydrant serving up tasty well water! A beautiful outdoor hot tub under the stars seats five with a lounge. A unique outdoor shower and sink with an on-demand propane water heater is a available on the beach. The site has its own fire pit, and camp wood is provided. We have accommodations for horses too. The property includes a house and a tipi that allows for the possibility of group retreats.
Hawkins Point is the farthest point on the Sunnyside Peninsula, named for the fact that it faces south; it's a gateway to the northern end of the lake and the Pack River Delta. The property has been in the same family since 1944 at a prominent geographic feature on Lake Pend Oreille, Hawkins Point. A public boat dock is right across the road, and the private shoreline is just west of the Hawkins Point public boat dock.
A private beach with a dock and sitting areas on privately owned shoreline that is shared with other guests who are staying on the property. Outdoor hot tub is available as a shared amenity, located north of the house, as well as the fire pit, horseshoe pits, beach shelter, dock, etc. that are on the privately owned beach. Barn, round pen and fenced area for horses. Access to state forestland and public lakeshore to view wildlife. Bring your own RV and plug into 50 amp service. A 30-amp converter is available upon request, but we prefer that you bring your own.
Sunnyside is a desirable neighborhood close to Sandpoint, Idaho, where folks enjoy living out in the country on or near the lake. It's also a popular recreation area with public access at the Oden Wildlife Management Area, Sunnyside Access, Hawkins Point and shoreline managed by Idaho Fish and Game. The area includes longtime residents and more recent transplants to the area, as well as seasonal residents. Sunnyside is teeming with wildlife, from waterfowl to big game, while Lake Pend Oreille is home to many species of fish, including rainbow trout, kokanee, bass, whitefish, perch, bull trout and more. The lake has a thriving fishery and with 111 miles of shoreline, much of it public, there's a lot to explore by boat, canoe or kayak, or by hiking, bicycling and horseback riding. Sunnyside is between Sandpoint and Hope, Idaho, and either town may be accessed by boat or car for dining, shopping, concerts and other events.
Sandpoint and the surrounding towns of Dover, Kootenai and Ponderay, as well as the Schweitzer shuttle parking lot in ski season, have a free SPOT bus. Amtrak makes its only stop in Idaho at the Sandpoint depot daily. Rental cars are available in Sandpoint or at the Spokane international Airport. Sandpoint Airport has a 6,000-foot paved runway. For our guests arriving by private plane in Sandpoint, we can possibly make arrangements for a loaner car. The Sunnyside property is about 15 minutes from the town of Ponderay, where you'll find Walmart, Bonner Mall and many other shops. It's another two miles to downtown Sandpoint, or about a 20-minute drive via Highway 200.
Follow the host's directions! Do not trust your GPS out here in the country. Vehicles under tow should enter from Highway 200 at Sunnyside Cutoff Road at mile marker 36.
Please note that you must back into the site. RVers must be proficient at backing up in order to get situated. There is a short hill to climb before you reach the site. You may want to put your vehicle into four-wheel drive before you leave the county road and enter Singing Pines.
The outdoor hot tub is behind the home, which is a vacation rental. It may be used by other guests, so expect to alternate usage.
If you bring horses, it's an extra $20 per head per night to feed out of the barn or on pasture. Dogs must be friendly with people and other dogs, as we have other guests with dogs staying on the property. The property includes a lakefront home and two bell tents (May through October) and three other RV sites that are not within sight. If you stay for a month or more, a fee for electricity will be added to your reservation.
The RV site is for up to six guests to stay in their own RV.
Sunnyside Road can get busy in summer time, especially on weekends when the weather is nice. Expect to see cars parked along the road on the half-mile stretch of public shoreline at Sunnyside Access and around the Hawkins Point public boat dock.

The location is easy to reach via Sunnyside Cutoff Road off Highway 200 when under tow or driving large motorhomes. DO NOT follow your GPS! From Sandpoint, take Highway 200 east toward Hope/Clark Fork. A few miles past the town of Kootenai, go past Sunnyside Road at mile marker 35 (you can turn here when not under tow and go through the railroad underpass and then stay left for 5.5 miles), and continue to mile marker 36 and turn right on Sunnyside Cutoff Road slightly uphill and cross the railroad tracks. Follow Sunnyside Cutoff Road for a mile and a half to Sunnyside Road, and turn left. Continue for 4.5 miles to Singing Pines Drive, which is just before the Hawkins Point Public Boat Launch. Make a sharp left and then stay to the right uphill to reach the site at 67 Singing Pines Dr. The site's boundary is marked by a large driftwood fence panel.
