Skookum Lake

Small campground but private sites. Pit toilets were the cleanest I’ve ever seen. There is a nice trail that goes around the lake where you will see a variety of wildlife. No cell service or hookups. There is one manual pump water fixture. Fishing is limited to trout.

Great Last Minute Spot for Solo Camper!

Was passing through from Priest Lake, and landed on this campground. I normally camp at North Skookum (which has always been amazing) but wanted to give this one a whirl. It was perfect for me! Camp host very friendly, plenty of wood available throughout campground, and bundles for sale as well. Very clean. Restrooms are very clean, garbages were easy access and bear safe. I love how private the campsites feel! Thick trees are always a plus for me. Easy fishing access. So beautiful. Highly recommend!
