Mirror Lake, Bonner County, Idaho

Mirror Lake is surely one of the most beautiful lakes in Bonner county. Set between two high mountains this lake is absolutely stunning. Amazingly two movies were filmed on this lake... The well know movie Dantes Peak (also film in Wallace Idaho along the South Fork of the Coeur d'Alene River. and much less known movie Mel. The movie Mel was about a big prehistoric turtle; one of the turtles large shells is on exhibit outside the only resort on this lake. Surrounded by aquatic vegetation, Mirror Lake is frequented by migratory birds and bald eagles, etc. There is one resort on this lake with camping (tent & RV sites) and rental fishing boats. The boat launch is gravel with one dock, store, restroom, running water, and camping. Fishing: Fish species info coming soon. See sign when fishing at this lake. For more fishing info call 208-769-1414. Directions: From Sagle Idaho on HWY 95 - Take Sagle Road. Turn right onto Talache Road/Forest Service Road 2233 and watch for the sign to Mirror Lake Campground after about one mile. Maps: View Google Map below...

  1. how to contact about the camping? rates and season? any camping restrictions and how many camp sites? crowded or nice and open? any toilet facilities? more info please. thx

    1. My family runs the campground, and you can contact Andy Carothers about camping at 509-710-0889, we currently have over 40 campsites, which are popular for monthly renting, and the customers are usually quiet and friendly. The resort is normally very open, although the summer time is definitely a little busier. We have clean public outdoor toilet facilities for our guests.

  2. I will drive over to the place to get the info. This resort does not advertise at all so its hard to find info on it. Thanks for making a comment about this as I need to make sure all resorts, etc. contact info is on our lakes pages. Thanks.

  3. Info yet? Im also interested in camping, boat rental rates, etc

  4. This is a family owned, family oriented facility. They do not allow snowbirds for a season and limit campers stays. They are super friendly and the boat rentals are fishing boats with trolling motors. An excellent place to enjoy quiet surroundings and seasonal frog chorus!!

  5. Watch a slide show of this lake at...

  6. This is a smart blog. I mean it. You have so much knowledge about this issue, and so much passion. You also know how to make people rally behind it, obviously from the responses.
