Idaho’s Forests, Rivers, Lakes and Mountains

Idaho is a large, diverse state that runs from Canada all the way south to the Nevada border. The Idaho panhandle features verdant forests while the central part of the state is mountainous. The southern part of the state is primarily farmland and plains that produce crops for a large part of the nation, especially potatoes. Depending on the types of outdoor activities and views you prefer, you can vacation in an area of Idaho that meets your needs. Your vacation home, cabin or condo can feature ample parking, internet access and a fireplace.

Water Sports in Northern Idaho

Northern Idaho is home to Couer d’Alene, a resort town on a beautiful lake. Boating, camping and hiking are common outdoor activities in this area. Forests of white pine stand tall in every direction and give the area a lush, green look. With close proximity to Washington State, Montana and Canada, you can choose day trips to other locations or focus your time on relaxing in Coeur d’Alene.

Lake Coeur d’Alene

Lake Coeur d’Alene is a 25-mile-long natural lake with nearly 110 miles of shoreline. Formed by the Missoula Floods, the lake is fed by two rivers and sits at 2,125 feet in elevation. It is known for boating recreation and pike, salmon and bass fishing. The lake is surrounded by snow in the winter, and some of the smaller lakes surrounding Lake Coeur d’Alene are known for their excellent ice fishing.

Skiing in Central Idaho

Central Idaho is home to Sun Valley. Known as the home of Ernest Hemingway, Sun Valley has many celebrity homes. Sun Valley is a popular winter destination for skiing, snowboarding, dining and shopping. Skiing competitions are regularly held in Sun Valley. Most towns in central Idaho are small and settled into the beautiful mountains, with a combination of snow and sun making it a vacation wonderland for many.

Boise Art Museum

The Boise Art Museum is housed in a historic Art Deco building and has many contemporary and traditional art exhibits, events, classes and workshops. Each September, the museum hosts an outdoor event called “Art in the Park” which offers art and fun for the entire family.

Shopping and Dining

Idaho boasts many shopping and dining opportunities, especially in larger cities such as Boise and Idaho Falls in southern Idaho. Many boutiques, malls, art galleries and gift shops attract visitors for a wide range of shopping opportunities. Dining features fresh foods and one of Idaho’s main industries - trout.

Weather

Idaho enjoys warm summers and snowy winters to make a wide range of outdoor sports opportunities available during your vacation. Precipitation is heaviest in the northern part of the state, both in the summer and in the winter. Winter is the most popular time to visit due to the skiing opportunities in Idaho. Travel can be treacherous during the winter with icy roads and mountain passes. Many layers of winter clothing and warm boots will make your wintertime trip to Idaho a pleasant one.

How to Get There

Idaho is served by a wide range of transportation services. Airline, bus, private car, rental car or train travel are all possible options, based on the area of the state you will be visiting. The southern part of the state offers the most services in and around the larger cities. Services may be more limited in the central and northern parts of the state, so it is wise to plan ahead.

It was so much nicer than staying in a hotel because there is a lot more room to move around & felt much cleaner & well cared for. Plenty of outdoor space to roam! We were sad to find the watering hole mostly empty due to a drought but we were able to go to Ashton reservoir and play there! Such a wonderful family that owns it! We really enjoyed our stay!

Additionally, the owners, Teri and Dan, are available and willing to entertain any special requests. (BJ, San Ramon, Ca.)
