The area around the campground houses countless outdoor recreation sites. If you want to explore some of them, a good place to start is Priest Lake because it is so close to the campground. The lake is a wonderful spot for canoeing, fishing, and swimming. You can also find some nice trails near the lake, like Upper Priest Lake Navigation Trail.

While you’re staying at Osprey Campground, remember that you are in an active wildlife zone. To prevent attracting potentially dangerous beasts to your site, food and other scented items should be stored and disposed of properly throughout your stay. Also remember to keep your furry friend leashed at all times, and always clean up after your pooch at the campground. Osprey can accommodate RVs, but there are no electric hookups available at the campsites. Finally, note that there is a fee for having additional vehicles beyond your first.
