In less than an hour's ride from the City of Coeur d'Alene along the Lake Coeur d'Alene Scenic Byway, you'll find yourself in the charming little town of Harrison.
This town has become the ideal destination among the fishing, boating, and outdoor enthusiasts who don't like crowds. Located at the mouth of the Coeur d'Alene River, in the early 1900s Harrison was a main port for big passenger steamers. Harrison also offers a sandy beach, a protected swimming area, lakeside camping, public docks, boat and jet ski rentals, restaurants, a motel, and a nicely appointed Bed & Breakfast, the Osprey Inn. Hwy 97 ends south of Harrison at the junction of Hwy 3. Take Hwy 3 north, past the chain of lakes and back to I-90, or continue south to St. Maries on the
White Pine Scenic Byway.
