What to do in Placid Lake State Park

Located on a branch of the Clearwater River, Placid Lake is known for its good trout fishing and smooth water. A number of facilities are provided for camping, picnicking, boating and swimming. Interpretive panels give an account of the early-day logging practices attested to by the massive western larch stumps in the area. The park is 32 acres in size and is 4,100 feet in elevation. There are 40 sites that offer flush toilets, a group use area, grills/firerings, firewood, picnic tables, trash cans, and drinking water. RV/trailer are limited in size to 25' and the maximum length of stay is 14 days in a 30 day period. A golf course is located nearby in Seeley Lake. For non-resident visitors, the day use fee is $5 per vehicle and camping fees are $12.00 for all seasons.
