Local Information for Hayden Lake
Idaho is loaded with lakes. There's Coeur d'Alene, and Pend Oreielle, to name two. They're both pretty big: Coeur d'Alene is 49.8 sq. miles, and Pend Oreielle, a whopping 148. Squeezed between them, at a humble 24.75 sq. miles, is Hayden Lake. Considering its comparatively miniscule size, one would think Little Hayden Lake would be shunned and neglected in favor of the watery behemoths sitting astride it; and one would be wrong. What Hayden Lake lacks in size is made up for in reputation. Its shoreline has more exclusive homes per square inch than many other places in the country. Despite a population of a little over 500 souls, Hayden Lake has its own country club. Bing Crosby, we're told, liked it here, and if you're into golf, there are no less than 13 golf courses in and around Hayden Lake and nearby Coeur d'Alene.
