Reeder Bay Campground closed for season

By Reader Staff

The Reeder Bay Campground, located on the Priest Lake Ranger District of the Idaho Panhandle National Forests will be closed for the 2018 camping season while the campground is upgraded to flush toilets. 

“We ask the public to please be patient during construction,” said District Ranger Felipe Cano. “We are really looking forward to offering the public modernized facilities.” 

Part of the funding to convert the vault toilets to flush toilets was made possible through an Idaho Parks and Recreation Recreational Vehicle Grant.

The campground is located within the Granite Reeder Sewer District. This upgrade has been planned for several years. Construction began last fall after the campground closed for the season, however due to the extent of the project and short season for construction projects of this nature, the contractor will need to complete the project this summer.

All other campgrounds at Priest Lake remain open this season. For additional information, please contact the Priest Lake Ranger District at (208) 443-2512.
