Farragut State Park kayakers on Buttonhook Bay

With a rich history as a World War II naval training center, Farragut State Park combines the history with simply spectacular scenery at the very southern tip of Lake Pend Oreille. The large 4,000-acre park has 223 individual camping sites, seven group camps and 10 camping cabins. Activities include picnicking, hiking, mountain biking, fishing, boating, swimming, water sports, disc golf, archery, horseback riding and more; in winter, it is a premier cross-country skiing destination. For boaters there is a launch ramp and docks.

For hikers, there are three family-friendly walks in the park:

Squirrel Cache Trail is an easy 1.2-mile loop with interpretive signs and meadow and forest habitats.
Shoreline Trail winds along Buttonhook Bay with outstanding views of the Monarch Mountains surrounding the very scenic bay. It’s an easy hike, 1.5 miles one way.
Highpoint Trail is a bit more strenuous three-mile hike (six round-trip) as the destination is Bernard Peak with excellent viewpoints of the south end of 43-mle-long Lake Pend Oreille. It is easy for the first two miles, then rocky and steep for the final mile.

The trails and many roads in the park are suitable for bikers as well.
