Hope is a tiny town located in Bonner County in the northern tip of Idaho. As of the 2000 census, the population was 79 residents. What makes Hope special is its location on the north shore of Lake Pend Oreille. Once a bustling railroad hub, the area now supports two towns: Hope and East Hope. The latter has a population of approximately 200 full-time residents. The town of Hope is near the Sam Owen Campground, a highly prized area to camp. With over 80 campsites, a wonderful beach, and a boat ramp, Sam Owen ranks as one of North Idahos finest campgrounds. Picnicking is also available at the campground. Activities at Lake Pend Oreille include boating, whitewater rafting and kyacking, fishing and scenic boat rides. Several excellent mountain biking trails and hiking trails are available in the region, also. Lake Pend Oreille is 65 miles long and 1,150 feet deep in some areas, making it the fifth deepest lake in the United States. It is home to many species of fish, including rainbow trout, lake trout, perch, crappie, bass and whitefish. Local wildlife includes whitetail deer, elk, gray wolves, moose, black bears, grizzly bears, coyotes and bobcats, along with bald eagles, osprey, owls, hawks, woodpeckers, ducks and the mountain bluebird, making it a birdwatching paradise. The largest city near Hope is Sandpoint, which has a population of 6,835 and offers many amenities for tourists.

Hope Weather & Climate

The Northern Panhandle Region of Idaho has a four-season climate. Located within the northern latitude, Idaho's Northern Panhandle has summer days that are long and sunny, with just enough rain to keep things very green and pretty. Temperatures can range from very warm in the summer to very cold in the winter. The major mountain ranges accumulate a deep snow cover in the winter. In spring, the melting snow pack provides irrigation water for the lower regions of the state. The major source of moisture for northern Idaho is the Pacific Ocean, although in summer there are some exceptions when moisture-laden air is brought in from the south.
