The 5 Best Places To Go Huckleberry Picking In Idaho This Summer

Potato? For many Idahoans, it’s all about the huckleberry! The huckleberry was officially named the state fruit in 2010, and for good reason. We love huckleberries and all things containing huckleberries. However, the best part about enjoying this delicious berry is the adventure in finding it! It’s notoriously difficult to cultivate huckleberries commercially, and the main method of obtaining them is by….well, going out and picking them.

Since huckleberries thrive at higher elevations, going into the mountains is a must. Berry picking season begins usually in mid-June and goes through August, but of course this varies based on weather and other factors. Many Idahoans are pretty tight lipped about their favorite huckleberry picking spots, but this list contains some good places for you to start!
