Island Park Reservoir In Idaho

Island Park Reservoir, Idaho

Boating, camping and fishing.

Come boating this summer at Island Park Reservoir, a 7,300-acre lake in the lower part of Idaho, at Island Park. The elevation is 6,300 feet above sea level. Boat launch ramp usage can vary with lake levels, but there are primitive places around the lake to launch when the lake level is low. There are no motor HP restrictions for pleasure boats or fishing boats, and many locations for easy portage of canoes and kayaks. Trout and salmon are the prize here. Explore 64 miles of shoreline from a boat or fish from the bank during the spring and fall. Winter offers ice fishing for rainbow trout and kokanee near the dam.
