A rediscovered vacation site located on State Highway 41, Spirit Lake is 10 miles north of Rathdrum and within easy driving distance of Coeur d’Alene and Spokane.
Spirit Lake has 12 miles of shoreline, is 4.5 miles long, one mile wide and 100 feet at its deepest. Spirit Lake is the highest of all small lakes in the Inland Empire with an elevation of 2,400 feet and is home to an abundance of spectacular lakefront views with the majestic Selkirk Mountains to the west and north. The town has a city park with public beach, boat ramp and dock. The lake is surrounded by forests, hiking and biking trails, and is near two prime golf courses, Stoneridge and Twin Lakes.
Not to be missed is the annual Big Back-In Lawnmower Street Drags held each year on Father’s Day in Spirit Lake.
