Although I've lived in Idaho for 10 years, unfortunately I haven't gotten to 'stop & see' very much of it (MY DH is disabled, so often can't get out, and we have very little money to spare, so even if we could, we couldn't afford to...)
So far, my favorite places that I've actually ogtten to stop & visit are:
Garden Valley (LOVE the Starlight Mountain Thater during the summer! wish we could go up there more than just once a summer, tho...)
Lava Hot Springs (just wish the campground & hotels were wheelchair accessible...)
Greyback Gulch (campground near Idaho City)
Teams I am on:

Last year we had a great time in Riggins, but our go to place is about 30 Min. past Arrowrock Damn. It is close enough to get to for a day trip to get away from it all! Whether it is Winter or Summer we really enjoy it.
Since I am lucky enough to have horses and ride I have a summer and winter favorite place. Winter is the Bruneau Sand Dunes State Park, I can ride most days (about 7 miles) and is usually 10 degrees warmer than Mtn. Home and the summer I like to drive up to Solider Mtn Ski area and ride the loop around the trail head. Great views and great trails about 12 miles of Idaho beauty. Cee
We go to Winchester Lake in Winchester. It's green year around, has a wonderful breeze coming off the Lake, has a nice B&B near it, and the Wolf Research Center is close by. There's also a nice little place to eat that is just right in prices. We don't go often enough, maybe this summer.
I would have to say camping at Twin Creeks .....just outside of Gibbonsville Idaho.....not to far from home actually. lOVE IT! surrounded by tall pine trees and the sound of the creeks .....it is sooo peaceful and alot of fun!

Deadwood; at the top of the mountain in early summer or late September. It's peaceful and so close to true wilderness. Also, Brownlee Reservoir in late spring. Just me and my hubby in our little fishing boat....

I will begin: a little piece of property along the Gold Fork River where I spent weekends growing up and now my children and their cousins along with aunts and uncles are all making memories there as well.
