About the Park
Lake Walcott has a great disc golf course, awesome fishing opportunities, a canopied park perfect for group activities and a variety of campsites. Campers can set up primitive sites along the water’s edge. Several group camp sites for tent camping are also available as are fully serviced campsites and cabins.
Located on the edge of Idaho’s high desert, Lake Walcott offers a welcome refuge for water and wildlife lovers. Picnickers will love the grassy, shaded day-use area and disc golfers come from all over to play the world-class 21-hole course. The park is a great base from which to explore the Minidoka National Wildlife Refuge, which offers some of the best birding in southern Idaho.
