Incorporated in 1909, Athol, Idaho, a lumber milling town lies at the north end of Kootenai County. Notable for nearby Silverwood theme park and Farragut State Park, several  miles east of town on the southern end of Lake Pend Oreille. The U.S. Navy's Acoustic Research Detachment in nearby Bayview conducts research with large-scale submarine models in the deepwater lake.

Athol Daze is celebrated every year in August with a parade and community get together that usually includes a cutest-baby contest.
