Life jackets save lives. That's why this park has a life jacket loan
program. If you're boating and find out you don't have the right size
life jacket for your passengers, we'll lend you one. Contact a park
ranger for more information.

State Park is situated at the foot of the Coeur d’Alene Mountains in the
Bitterroot Range. This four-season vacationer’s paradise awaits you with
scenic mountains, pristine forests, abundant wildlife, and the crystal
clear, azure waters of the largest lake in Idaho, Pend Oreille (pond uh-ray).
Lake Pend Oreille, with its 1,150-foot depths, is spectacular, offering
trophy fishing, sailing, swimming and wide-open water-skiing.
Summer and Winter Activities
Cross-country ski on groomed trails in the winter, walk for miles along the rocky lakeshore, snuggle up in front of a crackling campfire or search the steep mountainsides with binoculars for the elusive snow-white mountain goat. Our amphitheater and spacious group-activity facilities can accommodate large outdoor gatherings as well as intimate family reunions. Individual and group campsites and day-use shelters can be reserved
11 months in advance.
You can RV or tent camp
at Farragut. Reservations are
available by calling 208-683-2425.
Fish and Wildlife
A diverse biological community exists in this scenic forest setting of lodgepole pine, ponderosa pine, white pine, Douglas fir, poplar, western larch and grand fir. The forests are home to whitetail deer, squirrels, black bears, coyotes and bobcats. Common birds include owls, hummingbirds, hawks, woodpeckers, ducks and Idaho’s state bird, the mountain bluebird. The world-record kamloops (37 pounds) was caught in Lake Pend Oreille. The lake provides rainbow trout, lake trout, perch, crappie, bass and whitefish.
Naval Training Center
In 1942 the U.S. Navy built the second-largest naval training center in the world on this site. Over a period of 15 months, 293,381 sailors received basic training at Farragut Naval Training Station. The park has many exhibits about Farragut's role in World War II, and other topics. Farragut navy reunions happen each September.
Scouting at Farragut
Because of its size and variety of available activities, Farragut has hosted many large gatherings. These included the National Girl Scout Roundup in 1965, the World Boy Scout Jamboree in 1967 and the National Boy Scout Jamborees of 1969 and 1973. The park has also hosted tens of thousands of Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts for regional outings and campouts over the years.
