The City of Harrison was incorporated in 1899 and was once the largest city on Lake Coeur d Alene.
In 1917, roughly half of the residential area of Harrison and a number of businesses were burned in a major fire. Harrison has remained a sleepy little town that spurs to life each summer to celebrate life on Lake Coeur d' Alene.

A Geographic Treasure
The last few years Lake Coeur d Alene has gained recognition for its uncontested beauty. What most neglect to capitalize on is the extensive opportunities for remote adventures on its tributaries; the Coeur d' Alene, St. Joe and St. Maries rivers as well as the Chain Lakes. These tributaries offer unique wildlife experiences with daily occurrences of rare North American wildlife. The possible water activities are as diverse as the wildlife. There is an endless opportunity for fun and discovery. Whether you desire wild excitement, family fun or peace and tranquility let us get you on the water and on your way to a dream vacation.

South Coeur d Alene Lake
There are many little known benefits to visiting the south end of Lake Couer d' Alene. The rough weather patterns typically stay to the North end of the lake. There is less boat traffic and less chop on water at the south end. Also the small town culture of Harrison is guaranteed to lower your heart rate as you enjoy ice cream, music in the park and our sandy shores. Harrison has a trail head to the 72 Mile paved bicycle "Trail of the Couer D Alene" which meanders along the CDA lake and river front. We also have a growing mercantile industry in the full service town of Harrison.

Harrison is at the center of the South Coeur d’ Alene Lake experience. Harrison is a full service town with the largest public dock system on the lake, a public beach, city park and the Trails of The Coeur d’ Alene bike trail running right through town.

We are located one block off the Trails of the Coeur d Alene, which is a 72 mile paved bike trail providing unmatched scenic access to Lake Couer d'Alene and tributaries.

We also have a growing mercantile including Art galleries, gift shopping, ice cream shop, winery, cosmetologists, bait and tackle, bike rentals, lodging, a museum, pubs, restaurants, and countless local events.
Did you know that sightings of Moose in and around Harrison are common? During the summer they migrate along the bike trail and chain lakes. We also have one of the highest population densities of Osprey in the world. There are many eagles that also compete with the osprey for nesting grounds. There are so many species of bird that can be seen from our local bird observatory at Thompson Lake a few minutes drive from Harrison.
On our kayak tours you will get even closer to these birds as well as deer, moose, beaver, turtles, fish, and aquatic plant life.
