Lake Coeur d’Alene sits south of the largest city in the area as well, which is Coeur d’Alene. But Lake Coeur d’Alene isn’t defined by the city north of it. Here are a few statistics about the lake.
Lake Coeur d’Alene is large. It’s 25 miles long, 3 miles wide, and 220 feet deep. At one point, the area consisted of several smaller lakes. Most of the lakes in the area exist because of glacial movement. Beyond that, the construction of the Post Falls Dam in the late 1800s contributed to defining the lake as it exists today.
Lake Coeur d Alene homes are priced from the high $500k range up into the millions depending on the location and size of the estate.
CdA is the epicenter of a tremendous amount of activities. There are a number of resorts, trails, parks, camping grounds, and other outdoor activities around and on the lake. You can go kayaking, sail boating, swimming, and engage in various other watersports.
You can explore the lake on your own, or take a guided boat tour. There are numerous beaches and other family-friendly things to do. For those who prefer the rod and reel, the fishing on the lake is second to none. The waters are open all year, and there are a number of game fish such as chinook salmon and largemouth bass among others.
Be sure to check out the Eagle tours in the fall and early spring as Lake Coeur d Alene is a destination spot for them in the winter.
