Lucky Peak State Park

Lucky Peak State Park is comprised of 4 units, 3 of which are on or around Lucky Peak Reservoir. Lucky Peak Reservoir is about 12 miles long with about 45 miles of shoreline. Below the dam you'll find Discovery Park, a roadside park popular for picnics, walking the dog and fishing in the Boise River. This is also a flat water area good for canoes and kayaks. At the foot of the dam is Sandy Point (34-acres), a popular spot for clear, cool water on a sandy beach. There's also 2 volleyball courts and a giant fountain here with picnic tables, restrooms, a snack bar and barbecue grills.

Then there's the Idaho City Back Country Yurts and Trail System: a series of hiking, biking and cross-country ski trails with yurts available for rent in the "back country."

At the upper end of Lucky Peak Reservoir there's the Spring Shores Marina, a 208-acre unit with a full service marina (298 boat slips), long-term moorage, fuel, marina supplies, restaurant, a convenience store, picnic area, swim beach and recreation equipment rentals. The parking lots have plenty of room for trailers and offer 2 boat ramps for water access. Outdoor Adventures Inc. also offers commercial boat and personal watercraft (read: jet ski) rentals at Spring Shores.

Northwest Magazine rated Lucky Peak State Park as one of the Northwest's top 25 parks in 1999.
