The trailhead for the Caribou Ridge National Recreation Trail starts at the campground and is a 5 mile trail featuring a moderate climb with two outstanding overlooks of Lake Coeur d’Alene. Also nearby is the Mineral Ridge trailhead and hiking trail. If you’re an angler, you can enjoy fishing for northern pike, chinook salmon, kokanee and bass in nearby Coeur d’Alene Lake.
