Priest River

A booming logging town in the 1920s, Priest River is nestled in the Selkirk Mountain Range & bordered by the Priest River on the east and the Pend Oreille River on the south. Residents are mighty proud of their small town community featuring plenty of recreational opportunities for outdoor enthusiasts. Glance up at the dates on the buildings to get a feel for the town’s heritage. For a great place to stop for a rest don’t let the name Mudhole mislead you. This full-service recreation area located at the intersection of the Pend Oreille and Priest Rivers includes a boat launch, swimming, picnic area, and RV/campground facilities. It’s just one of many beautiful scenic spots in and around Priest River.
