Bonner Lake, Boundary County, Idaho

This lake is a great fishing and kayaking lake, but isn't ideal for swimming due to the natural growth in it. The restroom is not very usable due to poor upkeep. The launch into this lake is gravel and a very shallow launch. Great lake for all types of dinghies, but not so great for sailing due to the natural growth that can foul up the rudder(s). There are no power lines at this launch site. This is a designated "no wake" lake.

After passing through the city of Moyie Springs and the Moyie River bridge watch the left/north side of the road for Old HWY 2 and the sign to Bonner Lake.
