Priest Lake State Park
By photographer Missi Gregorius
Priest Lake State Park is one of my favorite parks in northern Idaho. It has 3 units, Lionhead, Indian Creek, and Dickensheet. Located on the eastern side of Priest Lake, the Park is great for photographers with its beautiful clear, clean lake, lively forest and lots of opportunities for spotting wildlife, such as black bear, moose, whitetail deer, osprey, and eagles.
Standing on the shore you can't help but take in the beauty of the mountains and trees that surround the lake. And if photography isn't your way of way of enjoying the park, there are plenty of other activities to tempt you, whatever the season: hiking, boating, fishing, swimming, canoeing, picnicking, and mountain biking in the warm months; cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and nearby snowmobiling in the winter ones. It's great that there are so many activities to choose from, but the breathtaking views and abundant wildlife are what draw me in the most.
