Popular Priest Lake Campground Closed For Summer
PRIEST LAKE, Idaho - The Outlet Campground on Priest Lake will be closed this upcoming summer due to renovations.
The popular campsite is being renovated to improve the quality of the campground. Renovations are expected to keep the campground closed throughout the 2011 camping season.
"Renovations will give the entire campground a facelift and will include new rest rooms, water and sewer lines, pavement, extended camping spurs, picnic tables and fire rings," said Priest Lake District Ranger Glenn Klingler. "I think when people pitch their tents at Outlet Campground in 2012 they will agree that the renovations were worth the wait."
Construction activities in the campground are expected to begin this spring and will last throughout the summer. Alternative camping opportunities at Priest Lake are available at Lower Luby and Reeder Bay campgrounds, which open May 13th, and at Upper Luby, Osprey and Beaver Creek campgrounds, which open May 27th. For more information about Outlet Campground's renovations, or for alternate campsite information, please contact the Priest Lake Ranger District at (208) 443-6845.
