This stunning lake sits in the northernmost portion of the Idaho Panhandle and extends for 31 kilometres. The 11,000 hectare is separated into two areas; Lower Priest and Upper Priest, with the former being the primary lake.
Priest Lake dates back to the last ice age nearly 10,000 years ago. Since then it has played an important role in the logging industry as well as being a popular destination.
There is some pristine wildlife living around the mountains and forest that surround the lake, including moose, bear and deer. This makes it extremely popular among tourists, as does its great year-round recreational activities and accommodation options.
