Coeur d'Alene Lake, Coeur d'Alene

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.

  • Expensive to rent watercraft or do things on lake. Swimming ares super crowded, but lake seems very clean.  more »

  • We have spent a few afternoons here and want to come back all the time! The lake is absolutely stunning and just walking around the shops, the floating boardwalk or even the trail right off the lake makes it for an incredible day. There are many places to eat, drink, get a coffee so many options!
  • Beautiful vast lake, with a variety of flora and wildlife, which changes dramatically the further south you go, with various lavish homes littered throughout. Look to try one of the cruises based out of the town to get the full experience.
