Farragut S.P. is quite a large park with many different activities. I visit in frequently since it is so close, probably 50 times or more a year. There are miles of trails for hiking, running, biking, and, for us, training sleddogs. It has several campgrounds which are full through most of the summer. Despite accomodating a large number of visitors,... More

Wonderful day use areas, trails, excellent boat ramp, nice camping areas for RVs, Tents, and Boats. Central location near natural areas and National Forest land.

Not crazy busy like CDA gets, we were able to kayak the lake for several hours without anyone swamping us with a boat or PWC. Although we didn't camp here we did check out the facilities for future use, and they looked very nice! Real camping, no glamping!

Farragut State Park was a great discovery for us in September. It is a huge park with about 5 camping pods, several group areas, and a primitive area if you are self contained that is only $10 a night around a huge pasture like area. The campgrounds are well laid out with power and water, very nice restrooms and lovely... More

We took our granddaughter to Farragut to play the kids disc golf course. Needless, to say, she loved it. At nine years old she can't really get the distance yet but playing the kids course she was able to shine. There are several adult disc golf courses (3 ) besides the kid course. The views were breathtaking, the history of... More

Beautiful views. Interesting to hear about it being an old base and they still test submarines in the lake.

A very nice Idaho State Park with great roads and even better camp sites, if I had a trailer or motor home this would be a great place to camp. I stayed in one of the basic camper cabins which sleeps five easily and was a bargain. The cabin had a heater and A/C unit along with electrical plug ins... More

We could only spend one night as we were on the road. We had a 30 ft. motor home and found many available pull thru sites (Late Sept.) Bathrooms were spotless and fresh smelling. The entire park looked like it had been scrubbed with a toothbrush :) In a short time we saw a huge Moose, a flock of Wild... More

We went to the park specifically to see the old naval training facility where our father graduated in 1944. We had a chance to donate his uniform to the museum. The ranger we talked to was very knowledgeable and accommodating. We had a great time talking to him about the history of the place. The rest of the park was... More
