      Not too many people have heard of Athol, Idaho because it is a very small town. It is pronounced just like it looks so whenever anyone trying to decide if they are saying it right, but laughing you can be sure they have figured out the right name. It is the leading town in the name of jokes in Idaho and yet a place of beauty and a great vacation place for the whole family.

      First Athol is located just 10 minutes north of Hayden, Idaho just outside of Coeur d’Alene. It’s an easy drive north right on the highway. As you approach Athol the first thing you are going to notice to the left side of the highway is one of the largest theme parks in the northwest. This is your first destination!

      Silverwood Theme Park has

      a 127 space RV and campground and will accommodate up to 2000 cars in the parking area. The campground includes laundry facilities, restrooms, a small store, showers, picnic area’s and tables as well as grills for that good old outdoor cooking famous in the north west. For information or reservations call 208-683-3400 ext. 139.

      When you’ve settled in and the kids are driving you crazy to get going you can find a full day of entertainment at Silverwood. It has just opened a new ride called the Aftershock and at 177 feet and a 65 mile per hour drop on this roller coaster you’ll feel like your skin is going to crawl off and hide in your bones. You’ll want to save some energy for their best roller coaster called Timbers. Modeled after the old fashioned, but ...

      • updated and safe versions of the east coast roller coaster of the 1940’s. You go around turns, up and down and the whole time you can hear the sound of the wood as you wonder if it’s going to hold. Don’t worry, it will!

        Included with the theme park is Bolder Beach water park with slides, tubes and hot tubs. A lazy river when you feel like you just can’t move much more. There are games throughout the park, nightly shows and entertainment and food of all kinds. It is a delight of fun with your own Garfield the cat.

        When you wind down and need to relax you can head 10 minutes south to the city of Hayden. Take the Honeysuckle exit and you can drive to the lake in 5 minutes. Once there you spread out

        the blanket under a tree, open the folding chairs and let the kids head for the lake for a swim. During the summer month they have life guards on duty. With a grassy area and a small sandy beach you can go from water to sand and then on to the grass for a relaxing nap or an easy lunch.

        North Idaho also offers a bike path you can ride on for miles and miles north or south from the campground in complete safety with your kids. It follows the path of the highway through forest and valleys. This is a beautiful place to stay, have exciting fun and then a little quiet fun at the lake or at night when the stars come out along with the marshmallows. So enjoy and we’ll see you all in the summer!
