The Oldest State Park In The Northwest Is Right Here In Idaho And It’s Incredible

Idaho’s state parks are absolute wonderlands of natural beauty, remote tranquility, and family-oriented recreation in every season. But few people realize that the Gem State paved the way for the state park system in the West by establishing what would become the oldest state park in the entire Pacific Northwest — which is quite a feat! Fortunately, like all of Idaho’s most tantalizing historical locations, Heyburn State Park is as gorgeous as they come… and with more than a few natural wonders hidden amongst its wealth of scenery.

Have you ever been to Heyburn State Park? This oldie-but-goody haven makes quite the getaway! We’d love to see your photos!
