Round Lake/Pond, Bonner County, Idaho

Round Lake/Pond is small lake, more like a big pond that one can only access via small channel surrounded by lilly pads via the gravel road. One would be advised to park just up the road (west) at Kelso Lake. There is little info about the lake/pond. Camping can be done up the road (east) at Granite Lake for free. Could find no fishing info. Directions: From HWY 95 approximately 5 miles north of Athol, ID., take the Kelso Rd. west to this lake/pond. Just before you get to Kelso Lake you will see a marsh on the right side (north) of the road with lots of lilly pads, this is the access point. Maps: Visit type in Kelso Lake, Bonner County, ID. and view Round Lake/Pond to the northeast or GPS coordinates 48.008654, -116.699389
