Moose Creek Reservoir is surrounded by 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 range up to 90 to 92 degrees.
