Some of the best fishing and hunting in the West is in found right here in north Idaho and Watsons Rose Lake Resort is in the middle of the action. Fishermen and hunters appreciate our proximity to the Idaho Panhandle National Forests and the Coeur d'Alene River Wildlife Management area, just minutes away.
Fish for trout, perch,and large mouth bass in Rose Lake, just steps from the resort, and cook up your catch on the barbecue. If you feel like exploring, there are 140 lakes and 2,000 miles  of rivers and streams in the Panhandle. Did you know that a third of the state's record fish are caught here? 
Fiishing on Rose Lake
Rendevous here after your wilderness hunting or fishing adventure. The modern vacation suite accommodates up to 8 people, and there is plenty of extra room in the camping cabins and RV area for your whole group. Gather in the historic tavern, watch a game on the big screens, listen to some great tunes, and weave yarns about the big one that got away.
"Our stay at the resort was wonderful. John, the owner, was extremely accommodating and a great host. Do not be deceived by the older plain looking exterior. The inside has been beautifully remodeled and furnished. We would highly recommend the resort to anyone."
