Overview

Beaver Creek Campground sits in the Idaho Panhandle National Forest, offering phenomenal views of the Selkirk Mountains across the reflective waters of Priest Lake.

Natural Features:

The campground is situated on the shores of Priest Lake at an elevation of 2,500 feet, shaded by hemlock and cedar.

Priest Lake consists of the main lake, where most water recreation takes place, and the smaller Upper Priest Lake to the north. The two lakes are divided by a narrow channel.

Recreation:

A local beach is easily accessible, where swimming and boating are available.

Visitors enjoy kayaking, canoeing or power boating up a 2.5-mile channel called Thoroughfare that leads to the Upper Priest Lake Scenic Area, where birding is a popular activity.

Beaver Creek has two trailheads, one for the 9-mile Navigation Trail that heads north, and one for the 8-mile Lakeshore Trail that heads south. Both trails offer sweeping mountain views and are enjoyed by both hikers and horseback riders.

Anglers find an abundance of trout fishing in Beaver Creek and in Upper and Lower Priest Lake.

Facilities:

Beaver Creek offers approximately 42 spacious, reservable campsites, including one large group site that can accommodate up to 35 guests. Amenities include drinking water, vault toilets and picnic tables. A boat ramp is just outside the campground entrance for boats 20 feet long or shorter.

Nearby Attractions:

Cross country skiing and snow shoeing are excellent in the Kaniksu Forest Region of Priest Lake.
