Camping

With over 37 million acres of public land, four major wilderness areas, and thousands of rivers and lakes, you'll never have to travel far to find a place to pitch your tent or park your RV in Idaho. Idaho has 29 state parks, over half of which allow overnight camping and have facilities for both tent and RV use. Everything from flat ground in dense forests to steep mountainous cliffs can be found here, along with campsites and yurts readily available for the park's 200,000+ annual visitors. As the number one outdoor activity in both Idaho and the U.S., camping can be as much of a unique experience as you'd like. Try pitching your tent in a state park, complete with showers and restrooms or sleep in the comfort of your own RV for the night. Perhaps you're looking to spend a few nights in Idaho's backcountry with nothing but your backpack, tent, food and water. We've got that too. And for the truly adventuresome, try a weekend in a yurt. For an experience with all the comforts of home, you can spend a weekend in the Idaho wilderness in a cozy cabin. Whatever type of camping experience you seek, you're sure to find it here.
