Lake Information for Coeur d'Alene Lake


The Lake Coeur d'Alene is 30 miles (48 km) long, ranges from 1 to 3 miles (4.8 km) wide and offers over 109 miles (175 km) of shoreline for boaters and vacationers to explore and enjoy. The lake is fed primarily by three rivers, Coeur d'Alene River, Saint Joe River, and Saint Maries River. The outflow is via the Spokane River. The elevation of the lake is 2,125 feet (648 m) above sea level.

Although glacially formed, Lake Coeur d'Alene's depth has been enhanced by the construction of the dam on the Spokane River.

Lake Coeur d'Alene is a popular tourist site for many people during the summer, offering great beaches and scenic views. A seasonal hobby of some local residents is viewing the bald eagles as they feed on the kokanee in the lake, mainly from the Wolf Lodge Bay. The Spokane River Centennial Trail, popular among cyclists, walkers, and joggers, follows along the lake's north and northeastern shore.
