Priest Lake

Serving YOU since 1983

Priest Lake, Idaho, is a top North Idaho destination, providing a breathtaking backdrop for a long list of outdoor adventures. A beautiful 23,000-acre lake sets the scene for boating, camping, fishing, hunting, and more, located a short two hours away from greater Spokane. 

With its clear blue waters and location beneath the Selkirk Mountains, visitors quickly discover why Priest Lake is so often referred to as Idaho’s Crown Jewel.

In the summertime, Priest Lake draws visitors seeking opportunities to bike, camp, hike, fish, hunt, and golf the Priest Lake Golf Course, known for accommodating all skill levels. The lake’s sandy beaches provide a pristine setting for swimming, sunbathing, and picnics, with designated public beaches placed around the lake. 

Hiking adventures can be found on Priest Lake’s wide selection of unique trails, offering panoramic mountain top views and scenic paths through deep forestry. 

In the winters, snowmobiling, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing take over, with many lodges offering trails that start just outside their cabin doors. 

The numerous resorts and campgrounds available for lodging allow visitors an extended opportunity to become immersed in lake life.
