McArthur Lake, Boundary County, Idaho

Small Boats with Motors Allowed. No Wake Allowed
McArthur Lake is part of the McArthur Lake Wilderness Management Area. The Lake is part of a beautiful wilderness area known for its water foul and aquatic life. A very popular fishing lake and near the dam (when there is no flow over it), it is known locally as an area for swimming. This lake would also be a great lake to kayak and do photography on, (not to mention, dinghy sailing would be appropriate as there is a significant amount of open water on this lake.)

This is a "no wake" lake and hunting is not allowed. The launch is paved with a dock, and the restrooms are accessible and well maintained.
