With easy access to this quiet forested lake, you will find good fishing opportunities from a large dock. It's a great place for a small boat, kayak or canoe along Idaho Birding Trail 14 - bring your binoculars!
Travel 3 miles north of Athol on US Hwy 95 and take the Granite Lake/Kelso Lake turn-off (west side of Hwy 95 just as the north-bound lane transitions into a passing lane.) Go west on a gravel road about 0.5 mile, cross the railroad tracks and turn left at the junction. Granite Lake is down the hill about 0.25 mile on your left. Kelso Lake is 0.25 mile past Granite Lake.
