Such a beautiful area. I just enjoyed the views from driving around the lake, golfing, and walking. It would be great to go out on a boat to really see it all.

Whether you take a stroll at night or swim during the day, this is a fun and beautiful lake to visit. Very family orientated area with lots of parks and water sports right on the lake.

This is a beautiful lake with many activities for all ages. There is a beautiful boardwalk that leads to an excellent hike over a hill called Tubb Hill. This was a definite highlight.

Coeur d'Alene is a most beautiful place to visit and also a wonderful place to live. There is so much to do in the summer, including swimming or boating on the lake. It is also a beautiful place in the winter, with skiing and sledding, and much more! I love it and recommend it to everyone.

The town of Coeur d' Alene is very beautiful. The area around the lake offered a lot of things to do. The park area by the beach was very nice, but the beach itself was just ok.

The lake has great views, and a nice beach, plus there is a lot of activities around the lake. The weekend we were here, the Coeur d' Alene food and beer festival was going on around the lake along with an art festival, and a farmer market.

This is a large lake with many camping, dining and trip opportunities. There are three rivers that are navigable for side trips and wonderful views with eagle, osprey siting's. Beautiful homes to family homesteads and farms. Swimming, skiing, boarding are all options. Boats and jet ski's are all available to rent.

Beautiful cruise on the ferry boat. Very clean wharfs, easy access. Paid parking adjacent to the wharf but easy with a credit card.

Idaho is a really cool place to visit. The lake at Couer d'Alene is very serene and beautiful. The water is inviting and you would love to swim there in the summer because it is so clear. I recommend visiting if you like to do any type of water activity. They have a lot to do and the town itself... More

Lake was fun, but the beach wasn't that great. I guess it's not a tropical destination though! Kids had a lot of fun!
