The Hidden Park That Will Make You Feel Like You’ve Discovered Idaho’s Best Kept Secret

When visitors come to Idaho, there are a few places that they’ll go see first: Shoshone Falls, Craters of the Moon, and Hells Canyon rise to the top when it comes to natural wonders and record-holding beauty. Fair enough. They’re spectacular. But in between our landmark attractions sits an expansive landscape that holds far more beauty than our big-name tourist draws. The most overlooked source of this unrivaled beauty? Idaho’s state park system, believe it or not!

With over two dozen state parks to choose from – each with its own history, personality, and magnificent scenery – these local gems couldn’t possibly be home to any secrets, though…could they?

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:
