Blanchard Lake, Bonner County, Idaho

Blanchard Lake is just south of Blanchard, Idaho off of HWY 41 and is a private lake with public access. When you drive down High Bridge Road to the lake you will see a sign near a farm house indicating you must check in before you access the lake. A farming couple owns this lake and is allowing the public to access it via permission first. This farm has a historic museum and a history book of the area that they created is available. The lake is half full of aquatic plants and is known for it's good fishing. Also a good lake to kayak on and view the water foul. Locals swim in this lake also. The launch is a large gravel area with lots of parking. There is no restroom or running water. Directions: To access this lake travel east on HWY 41 and when entering the city of Blanchard turn west on to Rusho Ln. While traveling on Rusho Ln a short distance turn south onto High Bridge Road. Follow this road straight to the farm house where you sign up to access the lake. The launch access road is on the north side and near the farm house. Maps: View Google Map below...
