Douglas Hill OHV Area

Monday, July 11, 2016

Alt Names

Kootenai National Forest, Rexford Ranger District, Koocanusa Reservoir, Grob Lake, Sales Lake

Last Known StatusOpen

Located on the north eastern shores of the Koocanusa Reservoir, this area offers two separate sections that is open to all OHVs. The 200 acre woods trail has three access points and about nine miles of woods trails that form a northern and southern loop. The open play area is located below the high water mark and is roughly 3600 acres but can vary due to fluctuating lake levels.

Primitive camping is permitted throughout the OHV area and is free year-round. For current lake levels and trail status contact the Rexford Ranger District at (406) 296-2536.
