Summary

Osprey Campground offers visitors stunning views of the Selkirk Mountains, abundant fishing opportunities, and the chance to watch wildlife such as moose and bears against a backdrop of a 25,000-acre lake fed by springs. Boating, canoeing, kayaking, and wake boarding are popular summer activities, while winter offers ice fishing, snowshoeing, and snowmobiling. There is also a Chipmunk Rapids Trail nearby.

Overview

Campers come to Osprey for sunshine and boating at Priest Lake, and for breathtaking views of the rugged Selkirk Mountains. Fishing is also a big draw, with trout just waiting to be caught.

While here, watch for moose, grizzly and black bears, wolves, mountain lions and deer. Osprey, as inferred by the campground name, also inhabit the area.

Recreation

Boating, canoeing, kayaking and wake boarding are summertime favorites. Boaters like to head north on the lake and traverse a narrow thoroughfare to reach Upper Priest Lake Scenic Area.

Anglers often catch Dolly Varden and cutthroat trout and kokanee salmon.

Facilities

Campground roads and parking spurs are paved and facilities are accessible. Amenities include flush toilets, fire rings and picnic tables that are naturally shaded by towering trees.

Natural Features

Osprey Campground is perched on the lower western shore of Priest Lake near Outlet Bay. The beautiful 25,000-acre lake is fed by springs trickling down from the Selkirks. The clear, blue lake reaches 300 feet in depth.

Nearby Attractions
