The Idaho Department of Lands has several large piles burning between Coolin and Cavanaugh Bay.  These piles are highly visible and travelers along Cavanaugh Bay Road should expect to see flames and embers, even after dark.  It is expected that some adjacent trees may catch fire and there may be some ground fire near the piles. Smoke may settle over the roadway in the evenings so please use caution. The Idaho Department of Lands will be monitoring the piles through the winter months.

My grandfather smoked cigars and drank whiskey with Leonard Paul on the docks of Bishop’s Marina. I remember Leonard handing me the mail in the store. My older brother and sister and cousins went to Saturday night dances upstairs while we “youngins” danced to records on the Victrola at our cabin on Hunt Creek. Jim Roberts would load our groceries into his WWII Jeep, drive us down to the dock, put the groceries into a wheelbarrow and wheel it down to our boat and load it. 
Nicest people EVER. 
How sad it sits empty. If I knew anything about running a business, I would take it over in a heartbeat.  
My soul resides at Priest Lake, no matter where in the world I am. -E. Poole

Yes indeed. I actually got to meet Leonard Paul when I was a kid. I think I was going into the second grade. He gave me an empty cigar box for my pencils and crayons. -D. David

(BOISE) – Fire safety burn permits from the Idaho Department of Lands (IDL) are no longer required for burning activities outside of city limits beginning Oct. 21.

The fire safety burn permit from IDL is required for any burning (excluding recreational campfires) outside of city limits during closed fire season, from May 10 through Oct. 20 annually.

While state permits will not be required after the 20th, local fire departments, Idaho Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) and/or tribal authorities should be contacted before burning to determine if other permits are required or if local restrictions are in place.

Humans, not lightning, caused approximately 60 percent of the wildfires this year on lands protected by the Idaho Department of Lands, accounting for more than 98 percent of the acres burned. Many of these fires were preventable as they were ignited by escaped debris burning and campfires.

Please use caution whenever burning by following these steps:

Fall 2019 

Nordic enthusiasts are getting excited about the upcoming winter. There’s a lot happening at Priest Lake that should enhance this season’s Nordic experience. 

First, last season with grants from the Innovia Foundation Equinox grant fund and Priest Lake People Helping People, along with donations from the Kaniksu Lion’s, Hill’s Resort and individual donors, the club was able to purchase a new Yamaha Viking side-by-side UTV to pull the groomer and track setter.  With the new Viking, club volunteers were able to groom after every snowfall and skiers experience some of the best trail conditions ever.
 

Second, the Forest Service has approved opening up the Chipmunk Rapids trail system to skiing and snowshoeing.  Nordic Club volunteers plan to groom the Kaniksu Marsh and River View Loop trails. These trails have more intermediate terrain than other trails in the area and offer stunning views of Kaniksu Marsh, Priest River and the Selkirk’s. To get the trails ready, the Backcountry H...

CHIPMUNK RAPIDS NORDIC TRAIL REOPENS IN 2019

I have been cross country skiing at Priest Lake since 1984.  It is a winter wonderland, but many people do not take advantage of the opportunity. In part this is because groomed trails have not always been well groomed on a regular basis. Indian Creek state park does a good job of grooming, because they have had good equipment for a number of years. On the west side our equipment was not ideal until last year. Just last fall the Priest Lake Nordic Club cobbled enough money together to buy a tracked side by side UTV.

Last year Hanna Flats was groomed on a regular basis. Although there was no real advertising, word of mouth was enough to bring out many more skiers. This year will even be better. Our club was able to get a $13000 grant from the USFS which will be used to buy a larger pull behind groomer and a roller/compacter. This should allow us to groom for skate skiing as well as classic.

From my standpoint the best news of all is that...
