Kalispell Island

Kalispell Island centers you into a gorgeous panoramic view of Priest Lake. Once you dock your boat, crystal clear waters, sandy shores, and the Selkirk Mountains in the distance surround you. Venture further into the island and snap a photo of the vibrant greenery blooming from the vast trees.

Lakeview Mountain

Lakeview Mountain lives up to its name with the gorgeous sights you’re rewarded with as you hike up the trail. Snap pictures of the surrounding Idaho beauty, such as the neighboring mountains, Douglas Firs, and the glassy reflection of Priest Lake.
