Things To Do


Fish Creek Reservoir is a small reservoir suitable for non-motorized and motorized watercraft, stocked by Idaho Fish and Game for trout fishing.

The Shoshone Field Office offers a variety of recreational sites and facilities to help you enjoy the land and water resources of central Idaho. Most of the recreation sites are small and off-the-beaten track. You'll find interesting scenery, good hiking and fishing, and lots of solitude. Craters of the Moon National Monument and Preserve offers developed camping facilities with RV hookups. All other recreation sites are semi-developed, which means they provide basic facilities for camping, day-use, or boating access.

North Idaho is laced with lapis-blue swift-flowing rivers and cascading waterfalls and the greatest concentration of lakes in the Northwest. Southwest Idaho is a dramatic montage of desert, rivers and mountains that has lured visitors for centuries. Serene mountain lakes brim with trout, world-class whitewater waits to be kayaked and awe-inspiring canyons are home to birds of prey. And last, but certainly not least, Eastern Idaho is where the snow-capped peaks of the Tetons feed thundering waterfalls and free-flowing rivers, where wildflowers, pine and aspen create a kaleidoscope of autumn color and light.
