Koocanusa Sand Dunes and Trail System

AKA: The Dunes, Kootenai National Forest, Rexford Ranger District, Koocanusa Reservoir, Swisher Lake

Summary


This large open play area is located at the far north-eastern part of the scenic Koocanusa Reservoir near the Canadian border. There are several sand dunes and play pits which are only accessible when the water levels are low (generally late March through late June). The dunes range anywhere from 3 feet to 40 feet tall, and there are also about 20 miles of trails that run along the reservoir and into the woods. Most of the area is open riding except some indian burial grounds which are marked. The original site of the City of Rexford is under the water and when the water recedes, portions of old concrete foundations can be seen. Annual events such as Rendezvous Days are hosted here.
