BlueSlide Resort

Scenic Recreation on the Pend Oreille River


Scenic Recreation on the Pend Oreille River


Blueslide Resort is located in the northeast corner of Washington state on the west shore of the Pend Oreille river between Cusick and Ione. The resort has direct access to over 55 miles of boatable water and over 1000 miles of ORV trail system.  

There is truly something for everyone at BlueSlide. The resort is rustic but accomodating with everything from laundry, propane, boat launch and yes, even a heated pool (for those days when the river is just a bit too cold).  Wildlife is abundant, the huckleberries are delicious and the scenic vistas  breathtaking. 

Watch the eagles hunt the river while you enjoy your morning coffee.  Later, head out on the water or jump on your ATV, then come home to BlueSlide for one of our community BBQ events.  Head to our camp store for an ice cream or candy treat and enjoy some popcorn under the stars at our beach movies nights.

For over 40 years, outdoor enthusiasts from all over the world have enjoyed BlueSlides rare combination of location and accommodations. BlueSlide is about reconnecting with old friends and making new ones.

Come make some memories with us...

We'd love to have you!

We are completely sold out of seasonals for this year but still have plenty of sites and cabins available.  Don't wait too long though, we start filling up quickly as the weather warms up.

Our onsite team is returning this year.  Mike & Carol Pratt will be there to take care of our guests and look after the property.  Both are familiar with the area and have relocated for the season from Olympia.  

Fishing tournaments are beginning and we are all anxious to see what our local anglers bring back to the weigh in. The fishing has been improving for the last couple of years and we are looking for a great season in 2015.


Did you know?

Blueslide will kick off beach movies on memorial day weekend with "The Postman" starring Kevin Costner.  

What you may not know is that a good portion of that movie was filmed in the area (primarily Metaline Falls) and during filimg, most of the crew stayed at Blueslide.

Kevin Costner rented a house in Ione and the cast and crew became regulars in the local restaurants and other establishments around the area.  

In the movie, the cities of Pineview and Benning where both filmed in Metaline Falls.  Tons of dirt were brought in to turn the paved roads into dirt roads and a lot of work was put in to make the buildings look old and distressed. 

Residents of an apartment building in Metaline Falls were paid to have their windows blown out during the "Hannibal at the gate" scene that takes place in Benning.

So come and see the movie with us - then take a drive to Metaline Falls for a look at where it all happened.


Nick & Darin Returning to Blueslide

Live music continues on the Blueslide beach stage for the 2015 season.  Nick Grow is a local Spokane singer/songwriter performing in the Spokane/Couer D'Alene area.  He is a solo artist with a unique spin on classic songs and forgotten hits.

Nick alternates folksy finger-picking with rock strumming and sings songs ranging from the heartfelt to the humorous.

Darin is an accomplished musician, a powerful vocalist, and a prolific songwriter, with a full list of eclectic, originial material. His lyrics range from deeply inspirational and throught-provoking to just plain silly.  

Darin has a warm and appealing stage presence and a knack for meaningful interaction with his audience.

As Blueslide continues to develop the summer music series, we are interested in your input.  Let us know what you think.  

But more than anything, we hope you will come and enjoy some great music in some beautiful surroundings with your family and friends.
