Isabella Landing on the North Fork of the Clearwater River was the beginning point of the Clearwater River log drive. Logs were decked here until high water in the spring when they were released to go down river to the Potlatch mill in Lewiston. It was an essential part of the timber harvest and multiple use management of the land. By having the decks of logs consolidated in one place, other riverside areas could be used for camping and other activities.
