Beaver Creek on Priest Lake, Idaho Panhandle

Beaver Creek Campground

Idaho Panhandle National Forest \ Priest Lake Ranger District

Beaver Creek Campground is nestled on the shores of Priest Lake among hemlock and cedar trees.  The Selkirk Mountains provide a spectacular backdrop to this pristine lake.  The campground sits at the south end of a 2.5 mile channel, called the Thorofare, which connects the main part of the lake with the upper portion.  Campers enjoy canoeing, kayaking and motorboating the Thorofare and Upper Priest Lake.

Trout fishing in Beaver Creek and Priest Lake is very successful.  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.

Beaver Creek Campground is generally open from mid-May through Labor Day.  The campground has 41 campsites, one group site that will accommodate up to 35 people, and a day use area.  Almost half of the campsites are for first-come-first-served campers.  Others may be reserved at least 4 days in advance of your arrival.  Check rates and availability here: \ Beaver Creek
