Boundary Dam Reservior Campsite or Kayak Camping
Delayed a week due to poor weather this week-end
Here is an opportunity to do some kayak camping or day paddles from a campground in one of the more spectacular canyons in the Northwest.We will be arriving on Thursday morning and setting up a campsite at the Forebay Recreation Site. You are welcome to join us or set up on your own site. There is no camp fee, but it's on a "first come" basis. That's why we plan on arriving Thursday morning. Clarks may be there Wednesday.From there we can do day paddles to Pee Wee Falls and up into the canyon. For those who prefer, can paddle their gear upstream to any of the five developed boat access campsites in the canyon.
When:Thursday, October 1, 2020 to Sunday, October 4, 2020
Location:Pend Oreille River - Boundary Dam

The Boundary Dam campsite is roughly 120 miles north of Coeur d’Alene almost to the Canadian border.  The property is owned by Seattle City Light which owns Boundary Dam.  Camping is free.

Take Hwy 41 north to Newport WA.   Turn left onto Hwy 2 at the Safeway and in 0.5 mile bear right onto Hwy 20.  Follow Hwy 20 to Tiger (46.3 miles) and continue straight onto Hwy 31 for about 13 miles to Metaline.  Drive through Metaline.  At the top of the hill about 0.5 mile out of town, Boundary Road will be on the left and is well marked by a sign on the right.  Follow Boundary Road 11.5 miles to Boundary Access Road.  Turn right onto Boundary Access Road which goes about a mile down a steep hill to the Dam entrance.  Just before the entrance to Booundary Dam there is a road to the right that continues further down into the camping area, beach and boat dock.
