Placid Lake, impounded on a stretch of the Clearwater River, is known for easy trout and glassy water-skiing. Its interpretively signed shores are better known for the massive larch stumps left behind by historical logging in this part of the Swan valley.

A horseshoe pit, volleyball court, boat ramp, trailer parking, docks, a firewood concession, public phones, nicer-than-average restrooms, picnic shelters and the usual assortment of fire rings and grills at the 31-acre park's 40 camping sites mark Placid Lake as a popular summertime oasis, with an emphasis on boating, fishing, and swimming.

Fees for day use and camping. RVers note the max. combined trailer length of 25 feet.
