DworshakDworshak State Park is located among trees and open meadows on the western shore of Dworshak Reservoir. The area is known for its moderate summer nights and mild winter temperatures.

Camping, boating, fishing, swimming, hiking and water-skiing are just some of the many activities that await park visitors. A boat ramp and handling dock provide easy launching most of the year. A fish-cleaning station is nearby to help with the day’s catch.

The campsites at Freeman Creek Campground each feature a picnic table and fire grill. Of the 105 sites, 46 have water and electrical hookups. Twenty-five sites are provided at lakeside for tent camping. Sites are also available for use by the disabled.

There are three group-camping loops, designed to accommodate those camping groups that desire a more private setting. These loops may be reserved by contacting the park office.

A modern central restroom and shower house are provided for campers, and vault toilets and water fountains are conveniently located throughout the area. An RV dump station is located near the entrance to the park.

Spending the Day
A picnic area with tables, grills and a modern restroom is nestled in the trees next to the swimming beach and playground.

A large sun shelter is available and may be reserved for group use by contacting the park office.

Three Meadows Group Camp
Three Meadows Group Camp, nestled in a lush forest, is perfect for organized retreats and other functions. It offers a spacious lodge with modern kitchen facilities and eight bunk-style group cabins. Reservations can be made through the park office, 208-476-5994.. Click here for more information.

Getting There
Dworshak State Park is about a one-hour drive from Lewiston or Moscow and 45 minutes from Orofino. Roads to the park are a combination of two-lane asphalt and maintained gravel. The final two miles of road are a paved, twisting, narrow, 10-percent downgrade.
