We rented a speed boat from the resort right on the waterfront in downtown CDA, easy peasy, off we went for a 3 hour + tour and picnic on Mother's Day! Great fun for the whole family. Service was great. Inside scoop: rentals are 1/2 off pre season!

So this was a little campy admittedly, and our kids were too old to appreciate the fun in it, but it was a nice boat ride and did get us into the holiday spirit.

The lake was so calm and serene,there are many paths you can walk on,a popular place as there is a park next to the lake . Apparently there are many varieties of fish you can catch,even salmon,the tour boats are a great idea too. It is such a peaceful spot.Watch your step as it is rocky ! It's so nice... More

We drove about halfway around the lake on a sunny day in September, intended to drive all the way around. But we kept stopping for the view, and to take pictures, so ended up retracing our steps. It's a beautiful peaceful lake.

So love walking along this lake. So peaceful and beautiful. Even on a windy and cloudy day it has so much to offer.

We walked on the awesome boardwalk by the Coeur d'Alene resort. The captain of one of the Chris-Crafts (that we stopped to take a picture of) offered to take us on a ride. It was beautiful. We had a blast. Great parking nearby and public restrooms. Gorgeous place.

Coeur d Alene thrives on tourism and because of that it gets a bit overwhelming on the lake in the summer. I'd advise a beautiful vacation in September while it is still warm or seeing the beautiful colors in October.

Beautiful area with a lot of walking paths around the lake. A couple nice playgrounds, basketball courts, pickle ball courts and clean restrooms. A lot of poke stops if you play Pokemon go 😄
