Went here for some down time, and found that some of the campgrounds were open, decided to take a quik break and relax by the water. Sunny day, cold glass of tea, and the result was a relaxed day of bliss.

These lakes are renown for fishing, swimming and water sports. There are plenty of camp sites around the lakes, including Logan State Park - which has a boat launch and public beach perfect for picnic lunches and swimming for even young kids.

Love the nice small lakes, great for paddle board or kayak. Did not camp but would be great place to do that. Area is well maintained.

A relatively short drive to the scenic lakes, not much on the way to, from or beyond, unless you are headed to Libby MT. Lake access.

sometimes we catch trout or kokanee salmon and sometimes it ends up being just boatin'. either way they are beautiful lakes and they are connected by shallow water channels. camping and cabin rentals available also.

Middle, lower and upper Thompson lakes interconnect to offer a large range of activities. Fishing is fantastic, canoeing, kayaking, camping are all things you can do here. Too cold to swim and you can't rent boats so bring your own or a friends.

Good Variety of fishing! Bass for fun fishing or Perch for Eating. Great camping either in the state park with hook ups or the other side of the lake in more primitive settings. Wonderful hiking trails on the south side of the lake. Camp, explore...More
