Crater Lake

Crater Lake lies in the far  north of Pend Oreille County

Crater Lake lies on a geological fault on the west side of Sullivan Mountain. This is one of the few alpine lakes on the Colville National Forest. Because this lake lies in the Salmo Priest wilderness, there are no trails to the lake. It can be accessed by hiking cross country from the Sullivan Mountain summit or from the Red Bluff Trailhead. Both routes are over very step rough terrain.  There is dispersed camping available at the south end of the lake.
