I've only explored a small portion of Barber Park, and can't wait to go back to finish. It's a great place for a stroll in the woods. The paths are well traveled and go right along the river. Also a great park for birding.

This is a great park just off the beaten track a bit. It's the furthest up river park of the string of parks along the river in Boise... other than Lucky Peak State Park but that's not exactly in Boise. Some great nature trails to explore in Barber Park. Found the fishing to be so so. Think that depends on... More

My family (husband, 9 year old son and 7 year old daughter) decided to check out Idaho this summer. We had a great week and one of the highlights was the rafting trip from Barber Park! It was easy peasy for everyone and a super fun time. We got a 6 person raft (more room than the 4 person for... More

For the past 3 summers we've stayed a couple of weeks in Boise visiting family and this is everyone's favorite activity hands down. We usually go 2-3 times per visit. Since we have the luxury of having family in town, we drop one car at take at point (Ann Morrison) and pay to park at Barber Park ($5-$6 depending on... More

This is one of the very best ways to spend a summer afternoon in Boise. It's just the right amount of exciting to keep everyone in your group having fun. We parked at the take out point in Ann Morrison park and rode the shuttle up to Barber Park where the rental shop and air stations are. It can get... More

We've gone the last 3 years, starting when my girls were 3 and 7. This year they are 5 and 9 and we are going this coming Saturday. After our first time and renting the gear from Barber Park we knew we'd be going again so we bought our own raft and life jackets. We all love it! Highly recommend!

I had my 9 year old with me and was told this was a lazy river with a few quick spots. The current was strong enough that it was hard to stand up in. I could not fight the current and hold on to her. We were pushed to the side numerous times where we were scratched by branches. It... More

This is a fun group activity! You can park your car, rent a tube or raft, float, and get a ride back to the park. It's not a lazy river and I wouldn't take any kid younger than four, with that said, it is a great way to spend a hot summer day and enjoy the fairly swift current that... More

We walked a mile or so downriver along the Green Belt and when we got back to the park, we had a nice, relaxing picnic in the shade of the trees. It was a lovely way to get our exercise and enjoy the outdoors in Boise.
