Campsites: There are 105 campsites in Dworshak State Park arranged into 5 loops and a tent camping area. Blackberry and Aspen loops are small group sites, Osprey and Kokanee loops are larger and fairly open compared to Camas loop which is on the hill above Kokanee Loop. I will review each loop in detail on the "Campsites" page. There is a third group site named Three Meadows group camp which was occupied at the time of our visit so I was not able to learn anything about it.
