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
