Sagehen Reservoir and Creek are favorite destinations for a smorgasbord of travellers. Both a place of serene beauty and active fun, this near-Boise campground brings some of the best of Idaho’s treasures together in one location.

The fresh scent of pine trees is ever-present, and no matter the season a vast green vista greets each visitor entering this section of the Boise National Forest. The road winds around the reservoir, near the dam and past many tent and recreational vehicle campsites.

Idaho can be a bit of a silly place. There are a lot of strange things that go on within its borders and while they are not always nice things for the people who are forced to go through them, they can still be fun to learn about. A lot of history has gone down in Idaho and some of the stories that have come out on the other side of that history are surprising and can be difficult to believe. Every state has these kinds of stories and they are important to that state’s identity, but we are not talking about just any state, but the great Gem State of Idaho. Even if you have lived in Idaho your entire life, some of the funny things I have to tell you might not have crossed your desk or maybe they just did not occur to you to be as strange or silly as…

Camping is a relatively easy thing to do. All you need is a place outside to sleep that is not your home and to stick with it and try to go the whole night without giving up.

It is a calm day. The sky is a clear blue and there are only a few wispy clouds to get in the way of a warm and delightful sun. The air is clear enough to see for a hundred miles in every direction and the sounds of roads and civilization are far enough away that they cannot touch your ear. You swing your oar down into the water and pull it back, dragging your boat across the surface of a lake with a smooth and practiced motion. The water eddies around your paddle and you glide forward, slipping soundlessly beneath a low hanging branch of a tree.
