The Reeder Bay Campground, on Priest Lake, will be closed for the 2018 season while the campground is upgraded to flush toilets, according to a U.S. Forest Service news release.

“We ask the public to please be patient during construction,” said District Ranger Felipe Cano in the release. “We are really looking forward to offering the public modernized facilities.”

The campground is on the western shore of the lake, near Elkins Resort. The upgrade has been planned for several years, the release states.

Construction started in the fall.

All other campgrounds at Priest Lake remain open. For more information contact the Priest Lake Ranger District at (208) 443-2512.
