Springtime at Round Lake has arrived! The upper loop (sites 25-51) in the campground is now open, this includes the electrical sites (25-39 & 6). Lower loop remains closed till the road dries out from frost thawing. No reservations are available at this time, camping is first come first serve. Water in the park is shut off until the weather warms up, generally by the first part of May. You can make reservations for the peak camping season (May 20th through September 7).
The snow was very sparse this past winter which has kept the trails from flooding. They are in good shape and passable all the way around the lake.
The day use area as well as the boat ramp is open also.
Help us protect the trees within the park by adhering to Round Lake’s hammock policy. Using thin straps cuts into bark, leaving trees vulnerable to insects, animals, and disease.
- All hammocks need at least 1-to-1.5 inch straps
- Trees should be 6 inches in diameter
- Hammock webbing must be at least 1-inch wide
About the Park
Round Lake State Park is a beautiful forested park in the northern panhandle of Idaho. It sits on the edge of a 58-acre lake where flocks of Canada geese pass over towering pine, hemlock and larch trees and ospreys plunge for perch. Hikers will discover beaver lodges and may see a glimpse of a resident moose, while anglers listen to a chorus of bullfrogs, ducks and Red-winged Blackbirds, as they cast for rainbow trout or bass.
Round Lake offers many standard campsites and 16 serviced sites with water and electricity, plenty of shade, and scenic beauty.
