Excellent place to learn to paddleboard

The water is calm and clean in the spring and into early summer. The water starts to get a little green later in the summer. Not huge crowds. Even has a nice frisbee golf... read more

Nearby Boise has been recognized recently as one of the best communities to live in nationwide! This has led to incredible congestion on the roads. If I lived in Boise, beside enjoying the excellent hiking opportunities just out of town, i'd visit this splendid green oasis to recharge and relax. As it is, the bob furman cross country running invitational... More

Second day in Idaho for our winter vacation and headed to this park as reviews were pretty good. Kinda excited at first there were less people yet but just right after a couple of ride place was crowded. Ride takes less than 10seconds and the wait takes forever to have the next turn. Ridiculous, can't recommend this.

It can be a little confusing where to go once you are there. It is so big. But what beauty - a piece of the country in the city. Water features and natural grasses and fauna make this a special place to just sit a watch what happens. Family reunions, wedding receptions and a day with family can easily be... More

This is a nice state park with beautiful easy trails. The dog loved it here. She first flushed some quail, then was very interested in the cows and horses. No crowds and it's an off leash place. Seems there is a zipline and swimming pool as well as a lake with a beach. Plenty of picnic spots but no overnight... More

For a change of pace, Eagle Island provides several hikes that are accessible year round. I have found wild plums in the summer which provided me with homemade jam, have taken the dog swimming in the river or lake, or just enjoyed hikes of variable length through and around the fields. Access is really affordable if you purchase the sticker... More

First off, for those who've been to Eagle Island State Park before but haven't been there in awhile. The entrance has been moved from Hatchery Road to Eagle Island Parkway. I didn't know this and I found a block entrance at Hatchery Road. There's a $5 park fee per vehicle. If you have an Idaho State Parks Passport the $5... More

Wonderful place for the family on a hot day. Swimming area in the river, large picnic areas and if you are a bird enthusiast...osprey, egret and many other species abound.
