Ernest Dufour

Waiting for the colors to get here, but I just Love it. The drive is simply breathtaking from Thayne, in particular. And the weather this time of year is absolutely gorgeous.

Adam Bostrom

I love being out in the outdoors and this place has breathtaking views, excellent hiking for families, novice hikers as well as advanced hikers. There is mountain biking trails galore and lots of spots to take your ATV's and dirt bikes. We love playing in the reservoir. You can bring boats and jet skis or bring canoes, kayaks and paddle boards there is enough room for everyone and it is a beautiful and big reservoir. This is a must see visit in Idaho so make a plan to visit it soon.

This is Heaven on earth! I love Telluride... but Idaho is climbing up my favorites list!

Robert Mentecki

This place is truly unbelievable. It's something you have to see and experience for yourself

Shawn Enright

Too many out of state campers that have no problem setting up camp 20 feet from someone else and running around on 4wheelers all day and night then running their generator all night 10 feet from your tent. Most fro. A state I can't say but starts with the letter U.

Jake Durtschi

Classic ski area for locals. The snow is amazing and the lift lines are short. Accommodations are not the super fancy but they are clean and decent. The snow is some of the best around. Literally some of the best powder around. You can also rent the fat tire bikes and do other activities if you aren’t into skiing.

Russell Heifort

I just drove through the forest on my way to Yellowstone and back to Idaho falls, but it looks like a place, I would explore and have fun doing it

Roland Shannon

Close to yellow stone and tetons but not quite as majestic. Drive some dirt roads and listen to the quiet.

Nishon Neal

Great place with many recreational things to do. Always great things to see.

Maria Lennon

The park is along the Palisade Lake. There are plenty of campsites. Some of them have bathrooms. My favorite part is between mileage marker 400 and 401. There are dirt roads off road to the beach. It's a sandy beach. People drive their motorhomes down and stay over night. No outhouses. This part is perfect for body boards, etc. There are other turn offs with boat ramps.

Sadie Schwendiman

Always so much fun to get out in nature! Bear Gulch is such a fun hike! If you are in the Ashton area and are looking for something to do, definitely do this hike. It is so pretty and you can see the old train tunnel the train used to go through!

Inna Counts

Not crowded, beautiful, clear water, stunning views

Paul Anderson

Great place to see the stars and smell fresh pine on the air. Love to river raft and ride my bike here!

Joel Manning

Beautiful forest, and very well maintained by the park service. The camping accommodations within the forest allow for a very immersive experience, and the abundance of forest life is wonderful.

Linda Williams

Stayed here in a rental for our visit to Yellowstone. Easy drive to West Yellowstone gate and lots of hiking. Highly recommend this area if you are going to Yellowstone.

Richard Smith

Alida Stevens

Harry Hibner

If you want to see nature at it's best, come here.

Kristian Petersen

Very pretty this time of year and much cooler than the city!

Sean Garrison

Amazing campsite. Very well tended. Great fishing. Lots of wildlife including bald eagles. Only four stars becuase I went through a can of repellent a day while I was here and may have gotten sick from all the squiter bites.

Gregg G

A cool Park on the way to the big one Yellowstone


Beautiful park enjoyed every minute of my visit to this national treasure.

Hunter Gregory

Beautiful forest in a great area. Lots of great people and the forest roads have good spots for camping or parking your rv. Hunting is popular in this area but there’s so much area that it’s easy to avoid people if that’s what you want.

Marceaux D. Lauren

Nice trails through the forest Very good location

Bryan Krause

5.2 mile loop. Also Harriman State Park! Just nice enough to spend a morning hike followed by a picnic!

Karen Maskarinec

Go to Mesa Falls. Scenic route is definitely worth the time. Lovely historic visitor center, awesome falls.

Drew Hill

My home place where I go all the time lots of pretty view and crazy adventures can be found here. Find the right person and you can truely see what this area has to offer

Avery Van Wagner

I absolutely love coming to the forest! The views are amazing! You will find plenty of trails for whatever kind of activity you are looking to do. Most of the trails are intended for vehicles under 50 inches wide, so larger side by sides could have trouble fitting. But don't worry, there are plenty of fun roads to drive down that almost any vehicle can travel. This forest has plenty of great places for fishing, just be sure to check the regulations before you go so you don't end up with a ticket from fish and game. The Caribou-Targhee forest also has plenty of places to go camping. Make sure you plan ahead because many popular areas are always busy. This is a great place to visit!

Dustin Myers

We hiked the lower palisades lake trail. Very beautiful in the spring. The river is raging around that time though so if you have wandering littles, keep a close eye on them. There was a lot of wildlife and flowers so it was a beautiful place to hike.

Ben Marchant

It was amazingly beautiful here! My family loves the outdoors and this part of Wyoming is gorgeous!

Mr sugar

Don't go there are zombies and other bad things. It is ugly

Larry Schlenker

Great views of a spectacular area. Got to love Idaho

Brian Eastmond

Beautiful park with lots of things to do nearby

Ryan Dickinson

Idaho is one of the USA's truly hidden gems. I had always imagine this place to be a flat potato farm and it couldnt be further from the truth. I think this is one of the most beautiful states in the country and that the people who are lucky enough to live here keep it a secret. Stunning national parks, wildlife, hiking, fishing and skiing. The landscape here inspires respect and awe.

Katie Andra

Love me some huckleberry picking!

Ron Wulker
