Overview

Overview

Bell Bay Campground is a prime place to set up camp on Coeur d'Alene Lake. The upper camp loop is on a hill overlooking the beautiful lake, while the lower loop sits on a short ridge along the shoreline.

Natural Features:

Located in the Panhandle of northern Idaho, the campground is surrounded by a forest of Ponderosa and other mixed pines. It lies on the southeast shores of Coeur d'Alene Lake just north of Harrison, Idaho.

The lake spans 50 square miles, offering countless recreation opportunities and scenic views for visitors.

Recreation:

Hikers enjoy the Bell Bay Trail, a foot path that runs for a mile around the lake shore.

The lake beach offers plenty of opportunities for fishing, swimming, power boating and canoeing.

Anglers enjoy the abundance of trout, salmon and panfish in the vast lake.

Facilities:

Bell Bay campground offers six reservable single family sites and several other sites that are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. There is also a large group campground on the upper loop that can accommodate up to 60 guests. Drinking water, vault toilets and campfire rings are provided.

The lower loop has two docks where boats can be moored. The walk from the docks is fairly steep but short.

Nearby Attractions:

The town of Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, on the northern side of the lake, is a popular destination. About an hour away, the area offers paddle boat rentals, ferry rides, sea plane rides and more.
