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.

  • Our first visit to Idaho was to visit Lake Coeur d'Alene, and it was wonderful! On a hot summer day, the cool lake felt amazing! And in the evenings as the air cooled off the lake kept us warm! We took a tour around the lake, and the houses here are beautiful! The lake is also perfect for some intense inner-tubing! We definitely want to come back :D
  • Great place to go swimming with the family! Really cool to go on the 4th of july!
  • Most amazing place we go every summer
  • A beautiful lake with cold, clear water. Beautiful drive around the lake until you catch up with an Imperial slug.
  • First time on the lake and it was wonderful
