Less than an hour drive from Boise is the nation's seventh largest forest, offering about 2.6 million acres of recreational opportunities. Towering ponderosa pine and Douglas fir dot the forest, located northeast of Boise. Home to Bogus Basin, the forest offers more than 70 campgrounds and picnic facilities. Fishermen haunt the streams and rivers looking for trout, while hunters seek deer. Mountain bikers and hikers explore the many trail systems and river kayak enthusiasts can enjoy the white water here. The main office with information is in Boise.
