Battle Ensues Over Historic Marina

The century-old Conkling Marina & Resort on Lake Coeur d’Alene is about to change hands again, and the new owners likely will be familiar faces to boaters. Tom Kirkpatrick and other family members who operated the resort east of Worley from 2002 to 2007 are poised to take it over again this month through foreclosure. But the traditional April 1 start of the boating season may be delayed as lawyers prepare to litigate over who owns the marina docks, which include about 200 of the most affordable boat slips on the lake/Scott Maben, SR. More here.

Question: Do any of you spend much time on the southern end of Lake Coeur d'Alene? How does that part of the lake differ from the northern part?
