Where can I go tubing in Idaho?
There is no better way to spend your summer than floating down a lazy river in Idaho. While there are many options around the state when you have the desire to float the river, one of the longest float trips is on the Boise River. This river is not fast and it’s ideal for those who want a more quiet, peaceful day of river tubing. The best place to hop in the water is at Barber Park. Here, you can also find equipment rentals and shuttle services. If you have a few hours, we recommend floating six miles down the Boise River to Ann Morrison Park. This float trip will typically take you three to four hours to complete.
If you are up in the panhandle, head to the Coeur d’Alene River for a day on the river. This river is known for its whitewater but once that season is over, this river becomes a delightful place for river tubing. Just make sure you don’t go too early in the season and find yourself in more of a thrilling experience than you expected.
What are some other scenic campgrounds I should add to my bucket list?
While Macks Creek Park is ideal for a summer camping trip, there are several other Idaho campgrounds that you should check out. In Ashton, you will find the Warm River Campground, which is tucked away in the Caribou-Targhee National Forest and sits along the Warm River. This campground is another excellent tubing destination and you can hop right in the river and float to your heart’s content.
If you are searching for a quiet campground that is tucked away and surrounded by Idaho’s natural beauty, check out Wildhorse Campground in Mackay. This campground only features 13 campsites, and no reservations are allowed so you’ll want to come early. But, nearby you’ll find all types of gorgeous natural features including waterfalls, lakes, rivers, and more.
