Nothing says summer like camping. Getting the car loaded with gear, or hooking up the camper and setting off into the wilderness is one of the best ways to start a vacation. It’s time to get away from all the creature comforts and spend time with the creatures. Campfires with s’mores, star gazing, and telling stories while you make memories to last a lifetime are all part of the joy of camping. There are few places in the world that are better for camping than the great state of Idaho. From U.S. forest land to state parks to private campsites, there are many opportunities to get out and enjoy the beauty of the Idaho wilderness.
Make sure you check out two amazing campgrounds operated by the National Park Service in Idaho. Craters of the Moon National Monument and Preserve in central Idaho near Arco and City of Rocks National Reserve near Almo in southern Idaho both offer unique camping experiences for those looking to enjoy Idaho in a new way. The lava fields at Craters of the Moon have created a geological wonder for exploration with giant cave formations. The rock formations at City of Rocks are unlike anything you have ever seen and draw rock climbers from around the world. Both sites are perfect for an epic experience that you and your family will love.
With over 2000 lakes in Idaho there are plenty of lake camping sites to enjoy. Camping by the lake provides some of the best views with reflecting sunsets and clear, star filled skies. The ability to play in the water near your campsite is always a plus in the hot summer months. Redfish Lake and Payette Lake are two local favorites. For something really unique with epic views, try camping at one of Idaho’s reservable fire lookout towers. Get a view for miles and miles and a truly one of a kind experience spending a night in a lookout tower.
Camp at one of the many sites near Twin Falls and race through the Snake River Canyon on a four-line zip line course that will get your heart racing. At over 1,750-feet long the Perrine Line allows you to see the beauty of local flora and fauna from new heights on a side by side zip-line that lets you race your friends and family though the skies. Or camp in Heise and take the Heise Zip Tour. With ten separate zip lines covering almost a mile of terrain the tour delivers incredible views of the mountains, rivers, and valley below.
From out of the world terrain and environments to world class views and high flying excitement, there is something for everyone when you enjoy Idaho camping. Create memories that will get you through the long winter and have you hooked on the outdoors and appreciating all the natural beauty Idaho has to offer. The only thing better than leaving for a camping trip is coming back home to a beautiful, professionally-cleaned house.
