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

Has some great hiking trails and a few east spots to swim, but not a lot of spots to camp that are close to the water. It is a beautiful park to visit for a day trip though.

I spent Labor day weekend in Farragut State Park, Idaho. The park was gorgeous. If you go you can hike down to the lake. The lake is absolutely gorgeous. Take enough time to explore the trails. I had so much fun hiking them. Lots of people bring their bikes to do trail riding. You will see tons of wildlife including... More

The sites are clean and well kept with power and water hookup. Some sites have great privacy. We enjoyed a accompanied site. Lots to do. Close to Silverwood theme park and the park itself has a lot to offer. There are 5 free Disk Golf courses which can provide hours of fun and activity. Beach and lake is great and... More

We were very impressed with the museum. It was our main goal for our trip north. The guide was extremely well informed and helpful. The exhibits were very informative. Afterwards my husband and I spent dinner comparing notes about what all we had learned. The exhibit about the German POWs was instructive, the photos of the shooting range that accommodated... More
