In the shadow of the stately Selkirk range lies the northernmost of the panhandle's large lakes. The 25-mile long lake is actually two lakes connected by a scenic 2.5 mile river, containing 26,000 acres of clear, pure, mountain water. Cabin resorts and a state park are nestled in shoreline forests of hemlock, cedar, Douglas and grand fir, ponderosa, white and lodgepole pine, Englemann spruce and larch. Huckleberries and delicate morel mushrooms grow under the canopy. Wildlife in the area include mule and white-tail deer, black bear, moose and elk. The lake is renowned for its big mackinaw and trophy-sized rainbow and cutthroat trout. Camping, fishing, golf, hiking and boating are just some of the activities visitors can enjoy. 400 groomed snowmobile trails, endless snowshoeing. A winter paradise for family memories.
