WATERSPORTS — The Mica Bay Boater Park on Lake Coeur d’Alene has re-opened for the summer boating season, the U.S. Bureau of Land Management says.

The site had been closed to visitors since April while crews removed hazardous trees. Root disease had affected the Douglas fir and Western larch bordering the site.

Mica Bay Boater Park is a popular day-use area that is accessible by boat on the west shore of Lake Coeur d’Alene. It is also accessible by foot for groups or individuals looking for a secluded picnic spot or quiet place to pitch their tent.
