    Murphy, Idaho

    Swan Falls - Idaho Power is a solid spot for those looking to camp near the river in Idaho. This place offers some pretty stunning views, especially if you manage to snag a spot right by the water. The sunsets down in the canyon are something else, and if you're into stargazing, the minimal light pollution makes for some incredible starry nights.

    The campground is free, which is always a bonus. It's got the basics covered with picnic tables, fire rings, and pit toilets. You won't find any electric or water hookups here, so come prepared. Pets are welcome, and you can have a campfire, which is great for those chilly evenings.

    Fishing is a big draw here, with the dam providing some prime spots. There's also a little trail system that offers some nice views if you feel like stretching your legs. The historical power station buildings nearby add a bit of character and are worth a look.

    Some visitors have mentioned that the area can get a bit buggy, especially near standing water, and there's not a lot of shade, so it can get pretty hot. But the scenery and the convenience of the location make it worth it. Just be mindful of the trash situation—pack out what you pack in to keep the place nice for everyone.

    Overall, Swan Falls is a great spot for a quick getaway, especially if you're coming from Boise or Meridian. Whether you're into fishing, hiking, or just relaxing by the river, this place has a little something for everyone.

    ATTN: Fires not allowed at this site

    Named after brothers Al and Roy Halverson who once farmed property to the north, the Halverson Bar and Halverson Lake area is unique for its curving two-mile sandbar along the Snake River and its two shallow lakes nestled below the rimrock and tall sand dunes. The Halverson Bar and Halverson Lake area is located at the western end of the Morley Nelson Snake River Birds of Prey National Conservation Area (NCA). This 1,200 acre area is managed for non-motorized recreational activities. Motorized uses are not allowed in the area. The lakes were originally natural depressions that accumulated water seasonally and were sustained by small springs. The lakes have since been deepened by homesteaders and farmers. Today, most of the water in Halverson Lakes comes from irrigation run-off from the upland plateau. Decades ago the lakes were stocked with fish - blue gill, bass, and crappie - which are the primary catch today. Cliffs and sloping bluffs of basalt separate the shoreline and canyon bottom from the upland desert. Basaltic boulders, deposited by the flooding waters of Lake Bonneville 15,000 years ago, lie like giant-size melons on the sandy bar. The area includes a gravel parking area and several miles of hiking trails.
