Priest Lake Sailing and Camping Adventure... July 25-28, 2014

Priest Lake Sailing Adventure

Hello Sea Scouts and Inland NW Sailors!

This Friday at 6:PM I am leaving the SAIL Marine store (406 W Miles Ave., Hayden) with the Sea Scouts to go up to Priest Lake for our annual sailing and camping trip, and return sometime Monday. We will be camping on Forest Service land for free a short distance from the Lion Head S.P. beach. You are welcome to just come for the day or stay the whole time with us… or near us at various camping spots. If you are not bringing a boat I am not sure if there will be room for you on a boat but Sunday is a hike and slide day you can join us.

To help you find our camping spot and other details there is a map I have created below. In addition I have added yellow markers on the Google Map with even more detail. It’s not likely my cell phone will work up at Priest Lake so if you have questions please call me (Miles) before I leave on the trip Friday… 208-704-4454.

It costs $5 to enter the park to launch from either the launch or from the beach. Some of us will keep our boats on the beach or anchor right off the beach. I will launch my keelboat early morning on Saturday and then take her out of the water late Saturday and take the boat to my campsite.

On Saturday the plan is to sail all day and travel up the channel to Upper Priest Lake.

Sunday the plan is to drive and hike up to the slice rock natural slide and slide and swim all day. To slide the slick rock you will need to see the Google Map or come with us so you do not get lost trying to find it.

If you have any questions call me (Miles) 208-704-4454, again call before I leave Friday. 

If you are coming to this event please let me know via a return email or a call if you have not already.
