Hauser Lake, Kootenai County, Idaho

Motors Allowed

Hauser Lake (550 acres) is a splendid little sailing lake with depth of 40 ft. and has one boat launch. This is another lake I have sailed many times and simply is a wonderful little sailing lake. There seems to be a consistent thermal wind in the summer that develops in the evening from the north, you can actually watch it develop with a small mist like cloud on the hill and watch the wind slowly progress across that lake. Directions: To access from either Spokane WA. or Rathdrum ID. On Hwy 53 take N. Hauser Lake Rd. Take a right on N. Fay Rd. to the Hauser Lake park and launch. Maps: View Google Map below... Boat Launch


  1. There is a fee charged at the boat ramp, even for kayaks.

    1. I realize this is an old reply that I just realized I did not respond to. There is a fee to launch if you use the actual launch but there is not entrance fee to the park and one could just launch off the beach for free. However if you come into the park with your kayak on a trailer then you will get fined if you do not have a launch fee slip displayed on your vehicle. Understand I am going off my knowledge and those that run this park/launch can change the rules and fees at any time.
