Sandpoint lies on the shores of Idaho's largest lake, 43-mile-long Lake Pend Oreille, and is surrounded by three major mountain ranges, the Selkirk, Cabinet and Bitterroot ranges. Unfortunately this town needs more tourists, as it's largest employer, Coldwater Creek, is out of business.

We absolutely love this campground!! It offers lots of shade and the views are amazing! Dry camping at its best. It's rocky so make sure you wear shoes for it. Makes it a lot easier to go in. Best to call ahead and make a reservation. We are from British Columbia and love making the trip here.

This lake is gorgeous. We were looking at real estate and boy oh boy is the waterfront expensive! We will continue to go back through summers and enjoy the Sandpoint & surrounding areas and the beautiful lake. One of these days we will find the property to be our "Golden Pond"

Nice deep lake for all summer activities. Water is nice temperature at the end of July/beginning of August.. City Beach in Sandpoint and Springy Point Recreational area is a nice place to spend the day.

Clean warm lake that is really underused and excellent for boating and swimming! I was shocked to see how few boats were on the water on a Saturday afternoon. The road around the lake from sandpoint to the vacation houses is very narrow and tight so we were glad we scoped out the road in just our vehicle before towing... More

Lake Pend Oreille (locally pronounced pon-da-ray) is one of the largest and most scenic inland lakes in the Northwest and reaches some 1,200 feet deep. Great recreation area for all types of watersports. The town of Sandpoint rests upon its shores and offers great dining, is a artists community, and for women interested in casual fashion, it is the home... More

Come see for your self the grandure of this lake. A little annoying that there are "No Tresspassing " signs hanging everywhere, but I guess some folks wander onto other folks property and bother them. Sandpoint is the Town on the lake and is just as charming as can be. Bring your bicycle!
