Where did that odd name Sagle come from? Well, it’s been told. when the village first got a Post Office, the postmaster submitted the name Eagle, Idaho, to the Postal Department. Eagle was already taken, so he merely replaced the "E" with an "S" and Sagle was born!
Sagle is located just South of the famous Pend Oreille Lake (pronounced pond dor’ ray) and just five miles South of Sandpoint, Sagle is the gateway to the communities of Bottle Bay and Garfield Bay. Sagle provides numerous outdoor activities including hiking, mountain biking, hunting, fishing and water sports. There are numerous trails and access to some great beaches, campgrounds, and boating ramps and breathtaking views everywhere.
Sagle is a small community, with timber and tourism being the primary economic base. With its tree-lined roads and beautiful scenery Sagle has become one of the areas prime locations to reside.
There are no shopping stores to speak of, you need to go across the bridge into Sandpoint, but it’s a community of its own with its own heartbeat.
