Water sports enthusiasts are not hurting for options on the Boise National Forest! With 9,600 miles of rivers and streams, and 15,000 acres of lakes and reservoirs, there is a wide variety of locations for swimming, boating and fishing.  Deadwood Reservoir, Anderson Ranch Reservoir and Warm Lake are all popular sites for motorized boating, plus each has sandy beaches on which to relax.  Sagehen Reservoir is popular for non-motorized boating.  The three forks of the Boise River and the Payette River each provide many types of water activities.  Beginner to expert rafting and kayaking sites abound on all the rivers and guided commercial trips are available on the Payette River.
