    Overview

    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.

    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.

    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 drinking water, flush toilets, fire rings and picnic tables that are naturally shaded by towering trees.

    Nearby Attractions:

    Hike the Chipmunk Rapids Trail that traverses along the Kaniksu Marsh, Priest River and Chipmunk Rapids.

    In winter, ice fishing, snowshoeing and snowmobiling are popular activities in the surrounding area.
