August 2023 Update:
We are finishing up the water main replacement! On Monday, 8/28/23, TML Construction is planning to tie in the new line to the water system and take the old leaking main off-line. This will require shutting off the water for a couple hours which will depressurize the system and require a boil order for at least 48 hours. There will be a full closure of Chatcolet Road for approximately half a day when running the line across the road. We appreciate your patience and understanding while we work through these waterline issues!
About the Park
Created in 1908, Heyburn State Park is the oldest park in the Pacific Northwest. Towering Ponderosa pines give way to flower-filled meadows and placid waters. Visitors can enjoy the peaceful serenity of cottages, cabins and campsites and admire the work of the Civilian Conservation Corps who built many buildings within the park in the 1930s.
Comprised of about 5,744 acres of land and 2,332 acres of water, Heyburn State Park is a paddler and pedaler paradise. Miles of trails await you whether you are a hiker, cyclist or horse rider. Bring your own boat or rent a kayak, canoe, or standup paddleboard and enjoy three lakes — Chatcolet, Benewah and Hidden Lakes, or the shadowy St. Joe River, which meanders along the eastern boundary of the park. The Trail of the Coeur d’Alenes, one of the most popular biking trails in the western United States, runs directly through the park.
