This is an extremely popular place to have a wedding at. I have been in two weddings here and the views are priceless. It is perfect for a summer, spring, winter or fall wedding. This is also the place you can float the river at. Transportation is available from Ann Morrison Park. Beautiful location.

Barber Park is a convenient and easy put in for floating the Boise River. Whether you are a longtime local, new to Boise, or just visiting, a float down the river is a must. Rafts and tubes are available for rent at Barber Park and you can carry your floating device directly to the water in about 1 minute. It... More

In the summer months, we bring our guests to Boise and enjoy the calm of the river float on a tube or raft. If they enjoy it, then the next trip can be on the Salmon or Payette where the real water is. Can get crowded on hot summer weekends so be patient. There is a cost to get in... More

This is the start point in the summer for floating the Boise River. You can rent, if you don't have your own, floating tubes or rafts and spend the next couple of hours floating down and through some of the most beautiful river scenes. The great thing about this trip is the cost. If you own tubes or rafts it's... More

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!
