lake coeur d'alene
a short drive from home is one of the best places.
Lake Coeur d'Alene, created by glaciers, has become an international resort destination with the town of Coeur d'Alene on its north shore and homes and resorts nestled along 135 miles of shoreline. Over 26 miles long, it has more than a dozen well-maintained boat ramps around the lake. Eight are close to the town of Coeur d'Alene, and three are around Wolf Lodge Bay. Birdwatchers will be interested to know that Lake Coeur d'Alene has the largest nesting population of osprey in the western United States.
