Fernan Lake, Kootenai County, Idaho

Motors Allowed
Fernan Lake and South Boat Launch
Fernan Lake (300 acres) is a great little fishing, rowing, and sailing lake due to the good winds and flat water for rowing. It is reported that there is a nice evening north thermal wind during the summer. Water skiing/wakeboarding/jet skiing on this lake is frowned upon. This lake is also home of Coeur d’Alene Rowing Club (http://www.cdarowing.org). There are two public boat launches, one at the East end with lots of lily pads and the better of the two boat launches on the West end of the lake. Shoreline access can be found along the roadside (N. Fernan Lake Rd.) on the north side of the lake. Directions: To access from down town Coeur d’Alene take E. Sherman Ave. north and after passing under HWY 90, right on So, Theis On Rd. From I90 either take Exit 14 from the west or from the E. take Exit 15 and follow the signs to the boat launch on the east end of the lake. There is a paved launch, docks, nice parking area, and restrooms. Fernan Lake is home to the Coeur d’Alene Rowing Club. Maps: View Google Map below.
