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. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:
