Things To Do

Overview

McClendon Spring Campground offers a truly unique way to experience the Idaho's public lands. The site includes a primitive campground with restrooms, free of charge. From the camp ground, you will have access to undeveloped exploration of the Cottrel Mountains. Here you will surely see plenty of beautiful wildlife while surrounded by native shrubs and trees. For those who desire, hunting for upland birds and antelope provides a challenging yet rewarding experience.

Boating, fishing, hunting and hiking are favorite activities in the Burley area. Recreation sites, developed and primitive, can be found along more than four miles of Snake River shoreline managed by the BLM.

Basalt cliffs surrounded by a sage grassland equate to outstanding hunting for upland game birds and antelope.

Anglers' prayers are answered here, with an abundance of brown trout, chinook and kokanee salmon, yellow perch, black crappie, channel catfish, small mouth bass, and walleye. Ice fishing is popular during January and February.

Exploration of the Cotterel Mountains provides scenic vistas and peaceful hikes.
