Listed below are some of the BLM sites in Idaho. There's National Trails, Scenic Byways and National Monuments, Wilderness and Wilderness Study Areas, Campgrounds and Recreation Sites (which includes picnic sites, conservation areas, mining areas, interpretive centers, travel management and multiple use areas, and boat launches).

Note: In 1992, the BLM presented a list of Wilderness Study Areas to Congress. The list was made up of properties that met certain very specific criteria in terms of reaching future designation as full-blown wilderness areas. Over the years since, further study of those properties has resulted in some of them being declared Wilderness Areas (particularly all those properties in Owyhee County) while many of the others are no longer recommended for the full designation. However, until Congress makes its final ruling and passes the paperwork, all the properties on the 1992 list are required to be maintained and managed as wilderness areas unless they have been specifically exempted by some other Act of Congress since.
