Creek Reservoir is surrounded with gently rolling hills in Northern
Idaho. The country is heavily forested with pines and underbrush. Grass
covers anything left uncovered. It is beautiful to a greenery starved
desert dweller such as myself. The high temperatures in the summer

with rainbow trout. According to the camp host, there are also bass,
crappie and bluegill.

and picnic table. Some of the lake sites have a dock for fishing or
swimming. In the campground most sites have a lantern pole.

It is called MOOSE Creek, however I wouldn't count on seeing a moose.

itself well to swimming, just be considerate of the fishermen.
