The original Brig at the Farragut military base has been converted into a museum. Admission is by donation.
The museum houses an interesting assortment of memorabilia from the base and the war. German POW's were interred here during the war and there is a very interesting area devoted to them.
Beaver Bay is a great, secluded little bay on Lake Pend Oreille. It is well-cut off from the main part of the lake so boats are not an issue. The swimming area seems small, but the water drops off quickly and it is quite deep for such a little spot.
We found the water to be quite chilly, but since the lake is 1200 feet deep in places I guess that's to be expected.
There is no lifeguard on duty.
Silverwood is less than 10 miles from Farragut SP, at Athol, Idaho. It is about 30 north of Couer d'Alene or 30 miles south of Sandpoint. This is a great little theme park, with an amusement park and a water park. They have 2 wooden roller coasters, which were too wild for my liking, but the kids rode them over and over again. There is also a roller coaster which was originally at Knotts Berry Farm - even our kids wouldn't ride that one! (They don't like the ones that take you upside down.) There is a nice selection of rides for smaller kids, too, so everybody can have a fun day here. There is a good variety of rides for everyone, as well as arcade games, shopping, restaurants and a tavern, and then there's the water park.
Boulder Beach is massive. I'm not even sure how many water slides there are, as they just expanded. I would estimate that there are about 10 waterslides, 2 wave pools, a lazy river (complete with a swim up bar) and Polliwog Park, which is a special area of smaller waterslides & water games just for the little kids.
If you want to rest your weary legs for awhile, you can take a steam engine train ride around the park in a restored 1915 train.
And as if that wasn't enough, there is a theatre on Main Street where you can watch a short Garfield Cartoon and there's also a magic show and an ice skating show which are offered several times each day.
Our 2 days adult passes cost us $55 per person.
