State Parks

Idaho offers some of the best in outdoor recreation and sightseeing in the West. Almost 70 percent of Idaho is public lands, from state and county parks to national monuments and reserves. 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.
