Did you know we own and care for dozens of parks and recreational areas along the Snake River from American Falls to Hells Canyon? We also stock rainbow trout each spring and fall to improve fishing opportunities for anglers. And we offer hunting opportunities for youth, geocaching adventures for the whole family and all the information you need on water flows to make your next outdoor recreation enjoyable.
If you are planning to visit one of our parks, campgrounds or other recreation sites, please check for updates before you go:
Idaho Power owns dozens of day-use parks, overnight camping sites and boating facilities. Day use of all Idaho Power parks is free. Online reservations for overnight camping are available.

Your Geocaching Destination
Join Idaho Power and “Roland on the River” for an outdoor adventure. All of our “powercaches,” also known as geocaches, are located on Idaho Power land, so feel free to explore while you visit. You’ll also learn some interesting facts about the hydropower system that provides clean, reliable electricity to our customers.
Swan Falls Park & Museum
The Swan Falls Dam was built in 1901 to provide electricity to nearby mines. Swan Falls is the oldest hydroelectric generating site on the Snake River. Idaho Power built a new power plant in the mid-1990s.
The old plant is now a museum, open for visitors in the summer. The nearby day-use park has a reservable picnic shelter and is within the Snake River Birds of Prey National Conservation Area. Fishing docks, an equestrian parking area, and interpretive signs are also at the park.
