Shoshone Ice Caves
Located 35 miles north of the campground on US Hwy 75, this natural wonder is actually a lava tube that is 1,000 ft. long and varies between 8 and 30 ft. in height. Take a tour and explore the trails, but be sure to dress warmly, even during the summer months.
South of Buhl in the Salmon Falls Creek Canyon stands world-famous Balanced Rock. Over 48 ft. tall and 40 tons, the wind carved rock balances precariously on a pedestal only 3 feet by 17 inches. Nearby Balanced Rock Park is an excellent spot for a picnic.
