South Lake Accommodations

A creek along the St. JoeThere is a scenic rural area with some great recreation starting about 15 miles south of Coeur d'Alene, Idaho.

It's where the waters of the St. Joe, St. Maries, and Coeur d'Alene Rivers flow out of the mountains and into the southern part of Lake Coeur d'Alene.

What is There to Do?

Wildlife elk, Idaho Panhandle National ForestsThe Greater South Lake Coeur d'Alene area is surrounded by expansive public lands, where camping, hiking, fishing, hunting, snowmobiling, and boating are popular activities in the Idaho Panhandle National Forests. If you like to spot wildlife and feast your eyes on beautiful scenery, chances are good you will like it around here.

It's the place to come for camping and outdoor recreation. Check out this nice article for an example of what to expect in the St. Joe National Forest.

Explore by Cycle, Car, Bike and Boat

Route of the Hiawatha Bike TrailCyclists enjoy touring on the two world-class dedicated recreational trails: the Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes and the Route of the Hiawatha. Links between these two trails via multi-use roads have been mapped by the Friends of the Coeur d'Alene Trails to form the 300k Bitterroot Loop.

The Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes Unofficial Guidebook: Including the 300k Bitterroot Loop, takes you on a detailed tour of things to do and see in communities along the bike trails. You don't need a bicycle to put the guidebook to good use. In addition to being sold online, you can find it seasonally at stores around the Inland Northwest.

If You Come by Car or Motorcycle...

The
Museum of North Idaho has some great self-guided tour books to orient you when driving around the Bitteroot Loop. Get The Milwaukee Road in Idaho and Roads Less Traveled Through the Coeur d'Alenes, hop in your rig or onto your bike and start exploring. Motorcylists will find plenty of biker friendly stops along the way.

Boat, Fish, Float

This The Lake Coeur d'Alene Web site is a great resource for people coming to enjoy the water.

kayak, power boat near Heyburn State Park Fishermen will find Native Cutthroat, Rainbow, Brook trout, and Mountain whitefish in the St. Joe River. Catch and release fly fishing is a popular activity along much of this public waterway east of St. Maries, Idaho.

Float the Joe in summer, when the water warms up a bit but it's still deep enough. Both whitewater and flatwater kayakers ride the St. Joe, Coeur d'Alene, and St. Maries Rivers, as well as Lake Coeur d'Alene, Round Lake, and Chatcolet. Powerboaters have been floating their boats here for decades, and they continue to come to enjoy the three laid back Sailing on south Lake Coeur d'Alenemarinas on south Lake Coeur d'Alene, where people dance to live bands on weekends throughout the summer.

Sailors also find the wind on the smooth south end of the lake some of the best in the northwest.


Just Get Away

Explore. Swim in the lake and rivers. Rent a boat or kayak in Harrison. Go white water rafting. Golf in St. Maries, or at the Coeur d'Alene Casino Resort's Circling Raven Golf Course in Worley. koshDance to live music at resorts around the lake. Dig for star garnets and fossils near Clarkia, or glide along xcountry ski trails on the Palouse Divide.

Catch a live performance at the art deco Empire Theater in Tekoa, Washington. It's always fun to stop in at the local cafes or taverns to rub shoulders with the locals for some good old, down home, Idaho backcountry philosphy.

Watson's Resort at Rose Lake, IdahoThere are a variety of lodgings from rustic camping cabins, amazingly affordable rooms and suites, and luxurious vacation homes. You can even stay at an expansive nudist resort in this part of north Idaho!

The picture at left, taken from the porch of the camping cabin at Watson's Rose Lake Resort, is typical of the beauty you will find in the area.

At day's end, relax on a deck and enjoy a delightful meal at one of three Greater South Lake Coeur d'Alene marina restaurants: Carlin Bay, Harrison, and Conkling Park.

Where Exactly is Greater South Lake Coeur d'Alene?

Directions

If you are driving here, take Hwy 95 south from Coeur d'Alene. It's the main north/south route between Coeur d'Alene and Moscow, Idaho.

Or take one of two scenic byways down the east side of the lake: The Lake Coeur d'Alene Scenic Byway (Hwy 97) or the White Pine Scenic Byway, (State Route 3). You can find off ramps to these two scenic byways from I-90 on either side of Fourth of July Pass. You will find several rural communities to explore in the Greater South Lake Coeur d'Alene area, within a 50-mile swath of the lake. We really do believe it's a great place to be.
