Recreation Updates

Please note the following updates for Idaho Power campgrounds, parks and recreational sites:

Drinking water has been shut off for the season at all C.J. Strike and Hells Canyon campgrounds. Fish cleaning stations are closed. Visitors should bring their own water.

Thousand Springs Park access road is closed until spring while we perform upgrades to the power plant switchyard.

Trenner Park, below American Falls Dam, is closed until the end of February 2022 while we reconstruct the retaining wall at the lower end of the park. The boat ramp is open during construction.

Niagara Springs Creek access is restricted due to heavy erosion on both banks. Please obey all posted signs.

The Hells Canyon Visitors Center is closed until further notice.

The Swan Falls Museum remains closed until further notice.

Campgrounds fill up quickly. Reservations are strongly encouraged. Visit our reservations page to ensure you will have a spot when you arrive.

Camping fees are higher when paying with cash or check at the campground, so reserve online and save money. See our updated campground fees.

We encourage all visitors to practice safe social-distancing and prevent the spread of disease by following guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Please enjoy the outdoors safely, and remember to wear a safety vest when recreating in, on or around the water!
