East Idaho Trip Planner
Welcome to East Idaho!
Neighboring Yellowstone National Park and Grand Teton National Park, East Idaho's countryside is blessed with similar beauty, but without the inconvenience of large crowds. Impressive waterfalls, a rich variety of wildlife and scenic parks are characteristic of the region. The lush forests and meadows of Harriman State Park are home to a 16,000-acre (6475-ha) wildlife refuge graced by rare trumpeter swans, abundant waterfowl, elk, deer and other wildlife. Henry's Fork Greenway of the Snake River, a world famous destination for fly fishing, flows through Harriman Park's meadows. The area's core, Idaho Falls, has plenty of sights and attractions awaiting the adventurous traveler, including the Caribou-Targhee National Forest and the Museum of Idaho. Whether fishing, hiking, bird watching, boating, jogging along the Greenbelt or just taking in the view, Eastern Idaho is a paradise for the outdoor enthusiast, ideal for recreation and relaxation.
