Laird Park Campground


Area Status: Open

Laird Park Campground, located in the northwest Idaho town of Potlatch and named in memory of A.W. Laird, a lumberman and early leader in the Potlatch Lumber Co., is a fantastic location to bring your family, friends or maybe even your boy or girl scout troupe for some outdoor fun and swimming. The recreation area has a sandy beach (a result of a swimming beach dam built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in 1933), 2 group picnic areas as well a half-mile interpretive trail. Fishing is a popular passtime here too, with abundant opportunities for rainbow and brown trout from the Palouse River.
