Information About our Town
Spirit Lake was formed in 1908 and started out as a timber town, producing many tens of thousands of board feet of lumber per day.
The town prosperred and became a popular destination. In 1939 a huge fire destroyed much of the mill and most of the stocks of lumber. Spirit Lake's timber era drew to a close.
Today the lumber industry is revived, with the Inland Empire Paper Company doing a splendid job of managing the surrounding forests. Tourism is now fast becoming a major industry for our little town, with many people coming from near and far to play on and around our beautiful lake.
