National Park Service Sites in Idaho

So much of Idaho is tied up in some truly incredible wilderness areas that there isn't a lot left over for National Parks. But several of the big emigrant trails from the 1800's cross the state.

I'm including the Bear River Massacre National Historic Site here because it is a registered National Historic Site. However, the property is owned by the Shoshone Tribe and is not under the jurisdiction of the National Park Service as it commemorates the massacre of hundreds of Native American men, women and children at the hands of the California Volunteers who occupied Utah during the Civil War to ensure that the Mormons remained "loyal" to a country that essentially killed their leaders, stole their property and chased them out to the very edge of civilization.
