Welcome to the Caribou-Targhee National Forest
The Caribou-Targhee National Forest occupies over 3 million acres and stretches across southeastern Idaho, from the Montana, Utah, and Wyoming borders. This Forest is also home to the Curlew National Grassland.
On the northern end of this Forest the massive profile of the Teton Range can be seen. Scattered throughout the Forest are waterfalls cascading down cliffs of ancient volcanic material. There are excellent tubing opportunities and perhaps the best trout fishing in crystal clear water. Hiking is also an important and excellent way to explore the Forest with many trails leading you to beautiful areas.
On the southern end spend time at the campgrounds with woods of pine and fir trees. Wildlife wanders unafraid, with clear fast flowing creeks, it only takes the scent of a campfire to imagine Native Americans, wagon trains, miners, settlers and cowboys passing by. Or, perhaps you would like to enjoy watersports available at Bear Lake.
The biggest problem with the Caribou-Targhee National Forest is there are so many and varied recreational opportunities to enjoy, there just isn't enough time to do them all in one visit.
The Caribou-Targhee National Forest consists of several offices: Headquarters in Idaho Falls; Supervisor's Office in St. Anthony; Ranger District offices in Ashton, Dubois, Idaho Falls, Pocatello, Montpelier, Soda Springs, and Driggs; and a work station in Island Park.
