The search for a passage through the Rocky Mountains brought explorers to Idaho in the 1800’s, and it’s the incredible beauty of Idaho’s lush valleys, white water rivers, forested mountains, and rolling hills that bring people back exploring on vacation after memorable vacation. Idaho State Parks are as varied as they come. Reach new heights rock climbing at The City of Rocks; paddle across Lake Pend Oreille, Idaho’s largest lake, in Farragut State Park; surf the sand waves of Bruneau Dunes, which is the tallest single-structured sand dune in North America.
Exploration of Idaho’s State Parks is especially exciting for families who are interested in experiencing something new or unusual. Find hidden swimming holes, hike through lava fields, watch wildlife up close, or discover centuries-old waterfalls that are only flowing three days out of the year.
Whether you plan an intimate day trip, camping in the backcountry, or a family outing, get outside and play in Idaho State Parks.
