Albion Division

  

The Albion Division, located approximately 20 miles southeast of Burley, Idaho, encompasses 95,000 acres of National Forest system land. Beautiful wildflowers can be seen and wildlife is abundant. In the summer, camping, hiking and mountain biking are popular. The paved Howell Canyon Road takes visitors up Mt. Harrison where you will find Lake Cleveland, a high alpine lake set in a cirque basin--one of two found south of the Snake River. The lake offers excellent fishing, camping and picnicing opportunities. The lake sits at 8,263 ft. above sea level and is situated on the north side of Mt. Harrison, nine miles up Howell Canyon. Lake Cleveland is a favorite fishing spot for trout fishermen. Non-motorized boats are allowed on the lake. The Lake Cleveland campground facilities can handle 100 people at one time and all facilities are handicapped accessible. A handicapped trail runs completely around the lake. A Sawtooth fire lookout station is also located at the top of Mt. Harrison. This popular visitor attraction offers panoramic views of the surrounding countryside, including the mountain ranges of the Sawtooths and the Tetons, the cinder buttes of the Arco desert, and the Snake River Plain. Howell Canyon is the home of an alpine ski area resort. Both groomed and ungroomed cross-country trails are marked in Howell Canyon, a popular snowmobiling area. A warming hut for winter recreationists is also provided at this location.
