    Overview

    Overview

    Luby Bay Campground is located near both Lamb Creek and Priest Lake. The campground is densely wooded with nicely secluded sites, and is within easy access to many great views of the Selkirk Mountains.

    Natural Features:

    The campground sits at an elevation of 2,500 feet on the western shores of Priest Lake. Campsites are shaded by hemlock and cedar.

    Priest Lake consists of the main lake where most water recreation takes place. To the north, the lake connects via a narrow channel with Upper Priest Lake.

    Recreation:

    Visitors enjoy kayaking, canoeing and power boating up the 3.5-mile thoroughfare that leads to the Upper Priest Lake Scenic Area. The upper lake cannot be accessed by car.

    Fishing, swimming, birding and wildlife viewing are popular activities as well.

    The Beach Trail #48 can be accessed from the campground. The 8-mile scenic excursion loops around the southern part of Priest Lake.

    Facilities:

    Luby Bay has an upper and lower section. Upper Luby Campground has paved roads and gravel parking spurs. Lower Luby has paved parking spurs and the option of waterfront sites. Campground amenities include water hydrants, flush toilets and a dual-bay RV dump station.

    Lower Luby has a large day use area perfect for picnics and group functions. A day use fee is collected for individuals not camping in the local Forest Service campgrounds.

    An amphiteather is located in the recreation area and regularly hosts interpretive programs.

    Nearby Attractions:

    Off-road vehicle enthusiasts will find authorized trails like the Peewee Trail, Steep Creek Trail and John Wayne Trail. In winter, hundreds of miles of groomed trails beckon nordic skiers and snowmobile riders.
