The campground is situated on the eastern shore of Priest Lake, nestled deep below the crest of the Selkirk Mountains. The lake spans 19 miles in length and reaches a depth of 300 feet. Priest Lake is noteworthy for its incredibly clear waters, fed by streams cascading from the high Selkirk peaks.
A variety of wildlife inhabits the surrounding area, including deer, elk, moose, grizzly and black bears, wolves and mountain lions.
Explore the extensive trail system around the lake. The Upper Priest Lake Trail takes hikers and mountain bikers to the Upper Priest Lake Scenic Area, which can also be accessed by boat.
Wake boarding, jet skiing, bird watching and canoeing are among the many activities campers enjoy.
Hike the 8-mile Lakeshore Trail which passes through alder, pine, young cedar and open hillsides of brush, providing memorable scenic views throughout the journey.
Anglers seek Dolly Varden and cutthroat trout, as well as kokanee salmon, on the lake and nearby Priest River.
