review rating - 1 to 5 stars Great location for hiking and exploring - My family and I went on a small day trip to the sand dunes, and it was a wonderful experience. We enjoyed both hiking up the large dunes and exploring the prairie scenery around the park. We came in February, and it was perfect temperature-wise around 70 degrees or so. I highly recommend visiting the park, as the scenery alone is wonderful.

review rating - 1 to 5 stars - I grew up a few miles south of the park and have fond memories about the Indian writings on the black lava.
11/4/2017 8:47:43 AM Horsethief Reservoir State Park by Rick Just
review rating - 1 to 5 stars Not a state park - Although there is currently a proposal to make it one, Horsethief is not a state park.
6/29/2017 2:28:06 PM Three Island State Park
review rating - 1 to 5 stars - Starting with the first day in, the womens shower had ants in there from under door, I told the maintance guy mowing the lawn about it, he told me that I was in the woods in a state park so needed to expect this, maybe so, but for 3 days they stayed there, until I told ranger Jamie (wonderful person always helpful), then the ants were sprayed and gone. Trees blew down, because of so many rotten and dead one, came down uprooted because of the storms, scarey when woken up at 6 A.M with branches falling down into your driveway, ever so grateful did not land on anyone or campers. A big branch near hit my friend that was walking in our camp.. Thinking maybe the trees should be cleared out when dead and dangerous, there is a lot of them. 1 person at the gate was very rude to people checking in. Sorry I did not get her name. but she was older.. I stayed 4 nights and days.. Nice park but very rude personel.And seems the park needs better care from maintance workers.. It is not just about mowing the grass, then you have free fun the rest of the day..Ver disappointed in what appears to be a beautiful park..

review rating - 1 to 5 stars A great state park - The state park was wonderful and close to West Yellowstone. Fishing has really really gone downhill since ice fishing was introduced and stocking was decreased.
review rating - 1 to 5 stars Favorite Lewis and Clark location - In May we happened upon this park traveling the Lewis and Clark route from Lolo, Montana to Lewiston, Idaho. Here we felt closer to the voyagers than at any other place on our trip. We walked to the river and imagined them there working on the canoes despite being sick.
8/26/2015 11:50:35 PM Balanced Rock Park by Jim Cooper
review rating - 1 to 5 stars Rich with family history - Among a collection of family photos was a photo of my Dad when he was a toddler and Grandparents at Balanced Rock ca 1910. They ranched south of Filer. In 2004, I visited the park and camped in the County Park. Beautiful!
7/17/2015 5:46:21 PM Horsethief Reservoir State Park by MytMouse
review rating - 1 to 5 stars First Time - We chose to camp here because we heard the fish were biting. Not exactly true. We did not find the public water pump, or the huge dock featured in some of the pics on this site. However, we had a great time despite those little things

review rating - 1 to 5 stars Great place to stay/camp while visiting - All that nice green forest. Water activities too.
review rating - 1 to 5 stars Trapping is allowed - Idaho allows trapping. 2 dogs have been killed in traps at English Point. Traps can be 5 feet from the center of the trail. Be aware.
