Recreation Overview

The Caribou-Targhee National Forest boasts rugged mountains, fertile valleys, rivers, varied wildlife, campgrounds, wilderness, adventure, solitude and scenery enough to saturate your aesthetic cravings.

A National Forest is more than trees and camping, hiking, fishing and hunting. You can enjoy the magnificence of the mountains; the serenity of the wilderness; the miracles of spring flowers, baby animals and majestic big game; the sound of birds while horseback riding; a camping trip; and the fun of a summer picnic in your National Forest - the Land of Many Uses, or rent a rustic cabin.

So, leave your stress behind and spend time with nature. In a few hours from any place on the Forest you can pull into a campground. Pitch your tent and spend a great get-away weekend fishing for the big ones or dabbling a hook in the stream, swimming, canoeing and cooking over a campfire.
