Keep an eye out for bald eagles feeding on the kokanee fish at Coeur d'Alene Lake. Fed by waters from three different rivers, this body of water has a number of Ford Model T cars sitting on the bottom of the lake from the early 1900s when people would attempt drive across the lake while it was frozen during the winter to save time. While you can't drive your car across the lake, you can try your hand at waterskiing, jet skiing, boating, and tubing on it. Cycle, walk, or jog different trails that make up the more than 100 miles of shoreline along the lake. Don't miss the 1,005.8 m (3,300 ft) floating walkway that affords great views of the lake. You can plan Coeur d'Alene trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.

Coeur d'Alene Lake reviews
We drove around as much of the lake as we could and we definitely recommend it on a sunny day. We'd go back.

We have been here before but I absolutely love this location. One of the prettiest waters around! We really enjoyed it this past summer but even in the fall the views are gorgeous!
