Lake Coeur d’Alene is a postcard-picture lake with an idyllic setting. Nestled amongst the northern Sawtooth Mountains of northern Idaho just a half hour or so from Spokane, the lake has clear, cold, cobalt-blue waters that descend deep into the interior of the earth.
The town of Coeur d’Alene is not your typical resort town with all of the trappings of some great beaches, shopping, restaurants and food, golf, and the world-famous Lake Coeur d’Alene Resort. Instead, it has the small-town friendliness that will make you feel like you grew up there.
On the water the winds can be shifty and puffy. Most of the racing on this lake is organized locally.
