The road to Three Meadows is a single lane gravel road."
I wanted to know just how bad this part of the drive really was. We take delivery of our brand new 30ft travel trailer in a couple of weeks and I really wasn't interested in destroying it the first year we have it. How bad is the gravel drive and will we be white knuckling the one lane portion of the road all the way down to the campground? I really don't want my husband to kill me for making reservations here.
Where are you now or where you will be going from to get to Dworshak Park? If you are close enough I would drive the TV to the park without the trailor. If not then I would find a place to leave the trailor in or near Orofino and go look first. I looked at what I think is the park on Google Earth but can't tell just where the road goes to get there. I can see what is probably the switch backs and they look doable as long as you are sure you are the only one in the corner. If what I saw on Google Earth is the camp ground, it looks pretty open and roomy. I grew up about 25 miles from there and we lived on a State highway that wasn't much better. I have been to the dam but not the park.
