Meet "Mack"

The nickname given to the “Rite of Passage” artwork located in the Farragut Memorial Plaza, next to the Museum at the Brig. He represents the 293,381 sailors who trained on these grounds for duty in World War II. Their stories are told in the museum, which is open from Memorial Day weekend until Labor Day.

Museum at the Brig

The Museum at the Brig houses the world’s largest collection of United States Farragut Naval Training Station (1942-1946) memorabilia. It includes two restored vehicles on display in the courtyard of the brig building. A 1938 Ford 2-ton work truck and a 1942 Pirsch open cab fire engine, were used when the Farragut Naval Training Station was in operation. Films on area history and geology are shown daily in the Museum at the Brig’s Pacific Theater. The museum is open Memorial Day through Labor Day, 10 am to 4 pm.

Play Disc Golf

Farragut has five 18 – hole disc golf courses. The Wreckreator, Northstar, A.W.O.L, and Cutthroat courses offer a world class disc golfing experience. The Little Black Bear is perfect for the beginners and those with children. A large selection of golf discs and accessories can be found at the Farragut gift shop.

Picnic at the Willow Day Use Area

Picnic at the Willow Day Use Area, which offers great views of Bernard Peak across Lake Pend Oreille’s Idlewilde Bay.  Look for the  mountain goats that live on this peak or take the terraced trail down to the shoreline to get to the water’s edge. You can also picnic at the Shoreline Picnic Area off the south end of the Shoreline Trail.

Swim at Beaver Bay Beach

This horseshoe shaped sand beach is one of the few places on the lake where the water warms enough in the summer for a swim. Remember that pets, glass containers, or hard sided boats (canoes, kayaks, etc) are not allowed in the beach area.
