Idaho state parks - a beautiful place to play and stay!

Idaho Recreation and Tourism Initiative

 Idaho Recreation and Tourism Initiative

The Idaho Recreation and Tourism Initiative (IRTI), created in 1988, is an enduring coalition of state and federal agencies and not-for-profit organizations dedicated to providing Idaho citizens and visitors with expanded recreation opportunities. 

IRTI wants to make it easy for people to come outside and play.

Idaho has a multitude of land management agencies and recreation providers whose roles can be confusing to the public. By working jointly, the coalition is able to provide information and services more effectively. IRTI-related projects are undertaken on a statewide basis, provide information and services at the local level, and benefit both Idahoans and visitors.

The Idaho Recreation/Tourism Initiative Partners (in alphabetical order) are: 

In addition, other public and private entities collaborate on various projects.
