Idaho Camping and RVing Travel Guides

Idaho

Additional Info

Idaho
Gem Of The Mountains
Idaho is a camper's paradise. From tip to tail, this state is just as crowded with natural beauty as it is uncrowded with people. Its northern panhandle holds miles of flatwater lakes, while rivers fill the rest of the state. This is white-water country - you can't leave the state without pausing by the Snake, Salmon, Payette or Boise, to admire the raging waters. If it's skiing you crave, look no further than Sun Valley in the central High Country. Or tackle cross-country and snowshoeing trails in one of Idaho's many mountain ranges.
This is the home of the Nez Perce, the Shoshone, and the Paiute tribes. When Lewis and Clark first crossed Idaho in 1805, they blazed a trail that would change the land and its population forever. Travelers can follow their path today and consider the perils they must have faced, as well as the beauty they would have seen.

Idaho holds many terrains, including dense forests, sagebrush ranges, and alpine meadows. It is home to many threatened species including wolves, grizzly bears, salmon, and woodland caribou. Black bears, elk, deer, beavers, and river otters roam the woods. Birdwatchers will spy raptors, including falcons, ospreys, bald eagles, and great horned owls, and waterfowl such as sandhill cranes, whooping cranes, and trumpeter swans.
