On the doorstep of Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks, eastern Idaho is the perfect place to enjoy the same beautiful ecosystem as in Yellowstone, but without the crowds and fast pace.

There are more than 60 private RV parks and public campgrounds in the region, where you can explore a wilderness that’s wild enough for adventure while headquartering in some of the best camping spots around.

Idaho’s a perfect place to see amazing wildlife in their natural habitat, where elk and moose graze the grasslands and swans and eagles soar on high, and where the snow-capped peaks of the Grand Tetons feed thundering waterfalls, glistening lakes and free-running rivers.

Cast a fly in the world-famous Henrys Fork of the Snake River, or rev up your adventure and take it off-road in miles and miles of ATV and 4WD bicycle and hiking trails. Make eastern Idaho your base camp for the most amazing sightseeing and recreation experiences ever and turn an ordinary family vacation into lifelong memories.
