Thousand Springs State Park is a testament to why this rugged area of southern Idaho is called the Magic Valley. The park is divided into seven units that are all within short driving distance of each other. Each unit offers a unique experience.
Visitors can explore the Oregon Trail at the Kelton Trail; hike and picnic at magnificent Malad Gorge; fish, view wildlife or ride horses in the indoor arena at Billingsley Creek; step back in time and tour historic agricultural structures at Ritter Island; hike in Box Canyon Nature Preserve and watch bald eagles; picnic at Niagara Springs; or teach the kids to fish at Crystal Springs.
Enjoy the gorgeous views as thousands of gallons of water flow from below ground, cascading down the volcanic cliff faces. These springs are the terminus of a massive underground aquifer that flows beneath the Snake River Plain from the Pioneer Mountains of central Idaho.
