Priest Lake - Kayak Trip / Canoe Trip
Weekend Trip Report
August 17-19, 2007
Priest River, ID
Priest Lake is one of the stunningly beautiful North Idaho lakes. There are actually two lakes Priest and Upper Priest they are separated by whats called the thorofare; a mile and a half or so of river like calm water.
To powerboaters this area is a no wake zone, the wildlife watching opportunities are amazing I was within 10 yards or less of two cow moose and an American bald eagle. Many other species of birds I don't know the names of. Camping is allowed all over the Upper lake as the property surrounding is all public. There are no Cabins or lakefront homes.
There are quite a few resorts around the Lower lake. Camping only with no facilities on the Upper
