Looking north you can see Warren Island located on the north shore of Lake Pend Oreille. In the background is the community of Hope, Idaho. Warren Island has recently been developed and offers homeowners a very unique waterfront setting. Some of the largest rainbow trout ever caught in Lake Pend Oreille were just offshore of Warren Island.
If you like beautiful sunsets, expansive lake views, and some of the nicest people on earth, Hope is the place for you. On the North shore of Lake Pend Oreille and just 12 miles from Sandpoint, Hope was once a bustling railroad hub, which has since settled into two unique cities, Hope and East Hope.
Be sure and ask the locals how to find Beyond Hope, really there actually is a Beyond Hope! Nearby on the Hope Peninsula is the David Thompson Game Preserve. You will almost certainly see grazing herds of whitetail deer and gaggles of Canadian geese. In the fall and winter, Bald Eagles can often be seen resting in the trees along the shoreline.
Also found on the peninsula is the Sam Owen Campground, a highly prized area to camp. With over 80 campsites, a wonderful beach, and boat ramp, Sam Owen ranks as one of North Idaho's finest settings. Incredible sunsets, deer strolling through the grounds and incredible views make this campground a place not to miss. There is also a great place for a picnic if you don't wish to camp.
