The mission of Friends of Idaho State Parks is to provide education about Idaho’s state parks and to work in partnership with the State of Idaho to sustain a financially stable, healthy, and vibrant parks system for use by all.

Who are we?

The Friends of Idaho State Parks was formed in 2009 when a state budget crisis threatened to dismantle the Idaho Department of Parks and Recreation and close many state parks. Initially, the group was just a Facebook page devoted to passing along news about possible closures. 

In 2013, the Friends of Idaho State Parks became a 501 (c)3 nonprofit, dedicated to supporting Idaho’s state parks.
