      Only 30 miles from the Canadian border Priest Lake lies in northern Idaho among some of the most beautiful land in the country. Deep in the Selkirk Mountains it is surrounded by dense forest of cedar, fir and tamarack. You have miles of beauty to explore or just sit and enjoy as you find your way to this hidden vacation land in the north.

      Located in Priest Lake, Idaho you’ll follow 19 miles from end to end on this lake with a 2 miles thoroughfare connecting the main lake with the remote upper portion of the lake. It is only accessible by foot, mountain bike or boat. But once


      you arrive you’ll love being hidden so far from highways, traffic noise and nightclubs. Just the trip to upper lake is a wonder in it self. It’s not a difficult 2 miles trip, but it will take you longer than normal because of the many spots you’ll find yourself stopping at along the way. So be sure to take along a camera to record the sights you may never experience anywhere else.

      With 151 campsites, 5 camping cabins and an isolated group site with it’s own beach you’ll find so much to do you won’t have time to think about what’s happening in the outside world. Each campsite is stocked ...


      • with firewood and have electrical hook ups. Also available are flush toilets, showers and a dump station for the lower sites.

        You can enjoy swimming on the shores of the beach or boating from one of a few ramps along the shoreline. Fishing is available with some of the best tasting fish in the world. I’m not sure how they managed it but you can taste the sweet meat after cooking on an open fire and savor memories for many seasons to come. The campground also has a volleyball court and horseshoe pit and for those winter adventurers there is ice fishing, snow mobiling and great cross country skiing.

        The wild life you can expect to see wandering through are black bear, moose and whitetail deer. But look up into the sky and you’ll find the symbol of America as it soars over head, the bald eagle. If you want to have information from an expert there are rangers and naturalist on hand to provide guided tours and information about the local sites and history.

        I loved the swimming in the icy water, then laying on shore until it was time for dinner. The beach is wonderful and restful. Lying on shore you look into a sky bigger than the heavens themselves and all the stress of life melts away.
