Priest Lake State Park is yet another Idaho destination that's inexpensive and enjoyable. Situated in the state's Panhandle region, Priest Lake State Park is just 80 miles away from Spokane in Washington State. It's also just 30 miles away from Canada. If you want to revel in the charm and splendor of tamarack, fir and cedar forests, Priest Lake State Park is the place to do so. The park is also excellent for people who are fascinated by wildlife. Many moose, whitetail deer, black bears and ospreys live there, to name several examples.
