Visitor Guide

Spring wildlife in view

If you're hoping to view spring wildlife in northern Idaho - and it's especially great for birdlife this time of year - check out a few area places to visit:
- Kootenai National Wildlife Refuge
- Pack River Flats refuge (by boat or stops along the delta, but also an easy walk upstream with a trailhead off Trout Creek Road, part of the Pend Oreille Wildlife Management Area)
- McArthur Lake Wildlife Management Area
- And of course Sandpoint's famous ospreys Sandy and Pete, who are now incubating eggs and can be observed on the live webcam at Memorial Field.

Silverwood's opening!

Get ready for fun times ahead

Summer must be getting close, because it's opening weekend at Silverwood Theme Park - just a short 30-minute drive south of Sandpoint on Highway 95. The park celebrates the opening of their 31st year with $19.88 tickets (valid May 4 and May 5 only), and tickets are available at the entrance. Learn more about the Northwest's largest amusement park on their website and also their blog.

Yes, Sandpoint's definitely a biking town!

Two-wheeled events filling up the calendar

Bring your bike if you're planning a trip to Sandpoint - it's a great way to just tool around and check out downtown, City Beach, and the lake. And if you're here during the full moon, don't miss the rather informal Full Moon Bike Ride when bicyclists gather in front of Eichardt’s Pub on Cedar Street - some wearing outlandish get-ups - for an evening ride. Check out the calendar below filled with summertime biking events that cater to every level of rider:
- Three-Quarter Minus Cykeltur. The inaugural timed gravel ride to benefit the nonprofit Pend Oreille Pedalers bicycle club begins and ends at Matchwood Brewing, 513 Oak St., and includes a long route (65 miles) and a shorter route (48 miles). A Cinco de Mayo celebration with live music, food and drinks follow. Info:
- Sandpoint Sojourn with Pancakes. A one-night bicycle trip June 1-2 as part of Adventure Cycling Association's #biketravelweekend. 208-255-4496
- CHAFE 150. Sponsored by the Sandpoint Rotary, this annual benefit ride June 15 takes bicyclists on a 150-mile route through Idaho and Montana. Plus, new this year are more options: 100 miles, 80, 40, 30, and the 4-mile family fun ride.
Plus, more on into fall including the WaCanId ride through Canada.
