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

Gorgeous scenery, pine needle lined trails....Shaded us from the heat. Wished we could have spent more time. will probably come back to Farragut and spend some time on the lake.

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

The park is very well maintained and the staff friendly. Good hiking trails (get a map from the visitor center - we got lost...). Disc golf was fun (discs on sale at the visitor center). The museum is interesting and well worth the stop (even the non-historians in our group liked it). It is close enough to make a day... More

Most people don't know that Idaho was home to a naval training base during WWII. Farragut State Park has a wonderful museum full of information about the base and WWII in general, which was interesting to the adults and children alike in our group. There are also several disc golf "greens", and Lake Pond Oreille is beautiful! There are day... More

This was such a nice surprise. Lake Pend Oreille is absolutely beautiful, perfect for sailing, hiking and biking trails abound, campsite secluded, clean and so very nice. Customer Service was excellent - so looking forward to the next time!

My family and I love Farragut, our first time was to Waldron earlier this summer, stayed for 4 days. Waldron is more of a open camping area with large flat areas and fairly treed. The showers and facilities are private, new, very nice in general. Easy for a 40 pull-through guy like me. Our recent weekend stay at Snowberry was... More
