Round Lake State Park RV & Campground Guide

Idaho

High on the panhandle of Northern Idaho sits Round Lake, a 58-acre body of water ground out by glacier activity during the Pleistocene Age. Surrounding the lake is 142-acre Round Lake State Park. The park is a celebration of nature, a place where humans and nature not only collide but also find balance. A forest of towering trees, including larch, pine, and hemlock, provide a canopy over much of the park and a sense of the majesty of nature. Cattail, skunk cabbage, water grasses, and water lilies edge most of the lake where trout spring from the water, chasing after the insects flying above. Situated in Sagle, ID, this park draws visitors from large communities like Boise and Moscow, ID, who want to experience its beauty and take in a peaceful retreat in nature.

Inside Round Lake State Park

Visitors to Round Lake State Park love to hike the trails that wander around the lake and through the trees as gentle breezes whisk sweat from raised heads. Anglers enjoy the antics of rainbow trout from the lake's bank, the pier, or on an electric motorized boat as the fish dart through the clear waters and spring from its depths in an elegant display of nature's vicious cycle. Water ouzel dance across the surface, seeking safety on logs that show their heads a short distance from the lake's edge. Osprey plunge into the water seeking a meal while frogs croak and crickets chirp, interrupting the steady song of birds and the intermittent laughter of children. During the winter, cross-country skiing, ice skating, and ice fishing occupy campers brave enough to challenge the chill.
