Flyfishing get away

A quiet gem back in the woods with a lake perfect for kayaking or flyfishing. No motor boats and just a single trail that is a mile long, it has several generous sized campsites and a porta potty available. It does NOT have running water, but you can always scoot down to South Skookum lake to get…

About This Campground

Brown’s LakeBrowns Lake is a 88.1 acre, 23' deep, high elevation lake that is in a setting of forested mountains. The lake is known for its fly fishing and camping. There is a primitive boat launch on the south end. While at the lake you can enjoy fishing, camping, canoeing and viewing the cutthroat spawning run in the spring.

History: Earl Broten wrote about moving up from Spokane and growing up in the town of Locke in Pend Oreille country in the early 1900’s. His stepfather staked some claims at Brown’s Lake across the Pend Oreille River, where they were looking for ways to get the ore out. That didn’t seem as successful as the fishing opportunities went though. His family would bring back large trout from Brown’s Lake.    

There is also a historical cabin located within the campground built by the Civilian Conservation Corps.
