Stagger Inn & Granite Falls Scenic Area Open for Day Use Only
Release Date: Jun 25, 2014 Priest Lake, Idaho
Contact(s): Jason Kirchner
The Forest Service has re-opened Stagger Inn, the Roosevelt Grove of Ancient Cedars and Granite Falls to the public for day use only. The sites were originally closed due to hazardous trees, but trees identified as potential hazards to the public have been removed and the Forest Service has rescinded the full closure order. Due to continuing concerns for the stability of the some trees in the area, for the remainder of 2014 overnight camping will not be permitted at Stagger Inn Scenic Area.
“We recognize the importance and value of the site to generations of campers and will do our best to deem the site safe for camping in the future” noted Matt Davis, Priest Lake District Ranger. “Over the course of the next year the Forest Service will be monitoring other trees and soil conditions on the site determining if additional tress need to be removed and whether to open the site for camping in the future.”
High winds on the night of August 25th, 2013 caused several trees to become weakened and damaged in the Stagger Inn Campground, resulting in several fallen trees and causing one fatality at the campground. The Forest Service reminds visitors that they should be aware of uncertain and changing conditions when visiting any area of the forest. For additional questions or concerns, please contact the Priest Lake Ranger District at (208) 443-6839.
As of Tuesday, the two-man crew working for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service had caught one bear – a black bear. The 5-year-old male, weighing 134 pounds, was ear-tagged and released, said Wayne Wakkinen, Idaho Fish and Game Department regional wildlife manager.
Radio collars have been helping wildlife biologists monitor North Idaho grizzly bears, which are protected under the Endangered Species Act, since the first grizzly was collared in the Selkirks in 1983, Wakkinen said.
More than 80 different grizzly bears have been captured.
I am impressed with this initiative. This approach toward monitoring the behavior of potentially violent grizzlies has been used with good success in pre-trail and post trial monitoring of offenders in numerous jurisdictions for many years. The result has been less offending harm caused and if they do cause harm we can quickly bring them to justice. My hat is off to the Fish and Wildlife service.

" I think we need to come to grips with the impermanence of physical things...including things we love very much...I am in favor of assembling a collection of photographs of the Tyee over the many years, but of letting her bones return to the waters of Priest Lake. Isn't that what so many of us would like to have done with our own ashes? I offer this with love."

They should rescue if possible. I've watched it deteriorate over the past 35 years.
