Raft, fish, swim, bike or ride a horse. Drive through forests of towering pines, touch ancient Indian petroglyphs and see fascinating granite rock formations. Explore historical sites and wildlife preserves. Camp next to an alpine lake or natural hot springs, rent a yurt or a backcountry cabin. Whether your taste in adventure is an intimate day trip, camping in the backcountry, or a family outing, Idaho parks are perfect for people who want to get outside and play.
