May 2024 Update:

Concessionaire Facilities will open around Memorial Day Weekend.

Park Hours:
  • Sandy Point: Open everyday 8am – 9pm. You must have your vehicle outside the gate by the posted closing time to avoid fines. NO PETS are permitted into Sandy Point May 1st – October 1st.
  • Discovery and Spring Shores Units: Sunrise to Sunset. The west boat ramp is the only launch open at Spring Shores Marina. The fuel dock will not be open until Memorial Day week.


Located just 8 miles southeast of Boise, Discovery Park is a great place to picnic, fish, and relax among the magnificent trees and the rocky canyons which offer beauty and solitude. 

This section of the Boise River is an excellent flat water area often visited by canoeists and kayakers.  You will usually see waterfowl, song birds, and our resident owl during the summer while bald eagles are common in the winter. 


Dogs Welcome

Discovery is an excellent place for dogs to play! Please clean up after your pet (doggy bag dispensers are located by the dumpsters) and please keep your four-legged friends leashed when not playing in the water.

Hours of Operation

Open sunrise to sunset year-round.
