Enjoy the Snake River
Take advantage of Village of Trees Rv Resort's walking path that leads directly to the Beautiful Snake River, which is well known for its dotting of islands and majestic waterfalls. Small mouth bass, sturgeon and trout are plentiful. For your convenience, a boat dock and entry are available. Enjoy the 20 miles of accessible shoreline on the Snake River for water sports activities like boating, water skiing, jet skiing or sailing.
Dramatic granite pinnacles reach for the sky at this remarkable national reserve that once served as a landmark for pioneers headed to California. With rock faces and monoliths that are more than 2.5 billion years old, this is a hot-spot for rock climbers, hikers, horseback riders, and people who love stunning natural views. You can follow the more than 500 climbing routes, ride or hike along the trails, watch for wildflowers and wildlife, or take along the bird check-list and enjoy a day of bird watching. The reserve includes more than 22 miles of trails and one hundred 300-foot spires that are perfect for climbing or photographing. You can also head to the beach to walk beside the water.
Set in the gorgeous Sawtooth National Forest near Albion, Idaho, Pomerelle Mountain offers outstanding skiing, snowboarding, and summer hiking and mountain biking. The 8,000-foot resort has 24 groomed slopes with a triple chair, a double chair, and a new 450' Magic Carpet boardwalk lift. You'll enjoy a drop of more than 1,000 feet as you ski or snowboard down this beautiful mountain. Cross-country skiers can explore the Nordic loops in the national forest, and beginners can take advantage of the ski lessons (group or private). The resort has equipment rentals, kids races, special events, and excellent lift rates for the entire family.
You'll find award-winning wines, wine cellar tours, a relaxing lounge, and excellent golfing at the scenic Carmela Vineyards, set in the countryside near the Snake River and Three Island State Park. You can taste varieties like Merlot, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Cab-Merlot, Semillon, River Mist, Johannisburg Riesling, and "Bodacious" Meritage (a red wine), all of which are made from 100% Idaho-grown grapes. You can learn about wine making, visit the gift shop for wines to take home, or settle back in the stone chateau for a delicious meal at the restaurant. Afterwards, play a round of 9 on the public golf course that winds around 50 acres of lovely vineyards

Star Falls/Cauldron Linn
At this site near the Oregon Trail, the Snake River is forced through a passage less than 40 feet wide. The Wilson Price Hunt party of 1811 capsized several times here and had to make the rest of their journey on foot. Undisturbed by later farming in the area, it survives as an exceptional natural spectacle on southern Idaho's most prominent river. Cauldron Linn offers world-class kayaking and rafting.
Shoshone Falls is among the most spectacular of natural beauties along the Snake River. At 212 feet, the falls are higher than Niagara Falls. They are best viewed during the spring and early summer, when water flows are high - depending on winter snow melt.
The beautiful Snake River town of Burley forms the setting for the Burley Golf Course, a serene set of greens that's located right on the scenic river. Led by PGA Class A golf professional Mike Williams, this course is a great place for both beginners and seasoned players. The course has reasonable rates for 18-hole play or 9-hole play, as well as special weekend rates and off-season rates. If you don't have your own, you can take advantage of their club rentals and golf cart rentals, or spend some time on the driving range, perfecting your swing before you hit the links. After your round of golf, be sure to explore the charming town of Burley, Idaho.
Craters of the Moon is a vast ocean of lava flows with scattered islands of cinder cones and sagebrush. We invite you to explore this "weird and scenic landscape" where yesterday's volcanic events are likely to continue tomorrow...
