Luby Bay Campground is divided into Upper Luby Bay Campground and Lower Luby Bay Campground. They are situated on the west shore of Priest Lake and are heavily wooded with mature trees. Lower Luby Bay Campground is on Priest Lake and has the Picnic Area. Lower Luby Bay has 25 RV camping sites. Seven sites are on a first come first serve basis, and the other eighteen are reservable. By looking at the map, you can see there are two loops in Lower Luby. The lower one is on the lake but is very open (no privacy) and the sites are close together. However, this is a beautiful setting.
Campsites: 25 total sites; 18 are reservable while 7 are available on a first come, first served basis. They all have paved driveways, a picnic table and a fire ring. These sites could be used by either an RV camper or a tent camper.
Water: There is water available in various locations throughout the campground. It is pressurized and tastes good.

Recreation: The main attraction is the lake whether you swim, fish, boat, or just want to sun bathe. There is also hiking in the surrounding mountains.
Fishing: Fishing is available in Priest Lake, Priest River, and many streams in the area. Check our fishing regulations link.
Boating: The boat ramp is down the road at the Idaho Fish and Game facilities. There is no dock at the campground, but I saw two boats anchored by the swimming area.
Wildlife: There are deer in the area and one could easily wander through camp. This is bear country so take precautions with your food and garbage.
