Welcome to Henrys Lake State Park

One of Idaho's great high mountain lakes, Henrys Lake is the kind of place that fishers dream about.

Located 15 miles from Yellowstone National Park and surrounded on three sides by the Continental Divide, Henrys Lake State Park campsites are situated on the shoreline of the 6,000-acre lake. 
After a long day of fishing and hiking, take a swing in one of three cabins located in the park.

The Idaho State Parks Passport: Your State Park Saving Option!

The Idaho State Parks Passport allows Idaho motorists 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 allows 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
  • 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.

To Parents & Guardians

Our goal is to help your children discover more about the outdoors while learning about our parks and making connections to the natural world. Here is how it works: when your child completes the Junior Ranger Actions for one of the twenty-two parks in the program, they can download the certificate for that park and fill in their name for completing the Junior Ranger program at that park. The program is designed for youth ages 6 to 12. We hope the discoveries your explorers experience in the program will encourage them to appreciate and protect Idaho’s natural and cultural resources.

The online Junior Ranger Program can work for those at home. It also can be a great activity either before or after visiting one of Idaho’s State Parks.

• They utilize a lot of non-verbal communication, like tail wags and body posture.

• Foxes use the earth’s magnetic field to hunt.

• They tend to be solitary animals, but are very playful when they choose to be!
