There is simply no better way to enjoy the outdoors than camping in Idaho. A crackling campfire, starry nights, and the allure of a snug sleeping bag make camping an appealing activity for nature lovers.
Idaho has 35 million acres of public land to explore with countless campsites to choose from. With this much land and relatively few people (1.7 million in the entire state) it’s easy to find your own place to get away. Many of these places are an easy two-three-hour drive from Boise. Some close favorites include Cascade Lake in Cascade, Idaho, Payette Lake in McCall, Idaho and Redfish Lake near Stanley, Idaho.
Idaho is full of beautifully maintained campgrounds on pristine lake fronts, near rivers, in the forest and even desert sand dunes. Much of the state remains wild and natural and offers many places for dispersed camping. Or for those wanting more of the creature comforts with an outdoor setting, Idaho has plenty of RV campgrounds and cabin rentals throughout the state.
Whatever your nature desire is, camping in Idaho is sure to please!
