Created in 1908, Heyburn State Park is the oldest park in the Pacific Northwest. Towering ponderosa pines give way to flower-filled meadows and placid waters. Visitors can enjoy the peaceful serenity of cottages, cabins and campsites and admire the work of the Civilian Conservation Corps who built many buildings within the park in the 1930s.

Welcome to Heyburn State Park

Comprised of about 5,744 acres of land and 2,332 acres of water, Heyburn State Park is a paddler and peddler paradise.  Miles of trails await you whether you are a bike rider, horse rider or hiker.  Bring your own boat or rent a kayak, canoe or pedal boat and enjoy three lakes - Chatcolet, Benewah and Hidden Lakes or the shadowy St. Joe River, which meanders along the eastern boundary of the park. The Trail of the Coeur d' Alenes, one of the most popular biking trails in the western US, runs directly through the park.

History of Heyburn State Park

The Coeur d' Alene Indians were the first inhabitants of the area now known as Heyburn State Park. An ideal place for an encampment, the lakes provided an abundance of fish and waterfowl.  The heavily timbered slopes and open meadows were ideal habitat for deer, bear and upland birds.

Rocky Point Interpretive Center

Heyburn State Park was created from the Coeur d' Alene Indian Reservation by an act of Congress, on April 20, 1908. The deed, signed by President William Howard Taft, granted 5,505 acres of land and 2,333 acres of water to the State.  The park was named in honor of U.S. Senator W.B. Heyburn of Idaho.

Much of the early construction was performed by Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC).  Between 1934 and 1941, the CCC built roads, trails, bridges, campgrounds, picnic areas, picnic shelters and the Rocky Point Lodge. Today, many of these facilities are still in use and are a proud legacy of the CCC.

The Idaho State Parks Passport: Providing Savings for 2013!

When implemented, the Idaho State Parks Passport will allow Idaho motorists to check "Yes!" to support Idaho State Parks by agreeing to pay an additional $10 in conjunction with renewing their license plates through the Idaho Transportation Department (ITD) and County Department of Motor Vehicle (DMV) Offices.  The Passport sticker will allow participating Idahoans unlimited daytime entry to Idaho state parks, IDPR operated recreation areas and boating access sites. The Passport will also provide nightly discounts on camping.  

When you pay the additional $10 for your passport, you'll receive a sticker that will adhere to your motor vehicle.  The sticker will provide unlimited access to all 30 state parks for the entire registration year.  

Out-of-state guests will have a savings option too, with the purchase of an Idaho State Park Motor Vehicle Entry Fee (MVEF) Annual.

 

What Will $10 Buy You and Your Family?

  • Admittance to all 30 Idaho State Parks for a year
  • Nightly discounts on camping
  • Hundreds of miles of hiking, cycling, mountain biking and Nordic trails
  • Your favorite boat launches
  • Countless historical and cultural sites within your state parks

Good for Idaho, Good for Idahoans!

Idaho‘s State Park Passport is simply a sustainable way to pay for the maintenance and management of Idaho’s 30 cherished state parks.  For those Idahoans who choose to participate in the program, the Idaho State Parks Passport sticker will replace the $5 per motor vehicle entry fee currently in place at state parks while also providing nightly discounts on camping.  

Out of State Guests

Our out-of-state guests have savings options too! You can purchase a $40 Motor Vehicle Entry Fee (MVEF) Annual and receive access to all of Idaho's State Parks and nightly discounts on camping. MVEF Annuals can be purchased at any Idaho State Park and online.
