Recreational opportunities abound at Boyer Park, providing your family with year round possibilities.

Biking/Pedestrian Trail

A 3.5 Mile trail stretches from the historic Almota Creek, through Boyer Park, and on to the base of Lower Granite Dam.

Lower Granite Lock and Dam

Only two miles from the park, treat yourself to hours of gazing at the hundreds of fish gliding up the fish ladder or watch them in the fish viewing room. You may also enjoy a stroll through the many 3-D exhibits in the multi-room building.

(Note: Due to National Security Concerns activities at the dam may be limited at this time.)


Our boat launch provides for boats of all sizes. The river is great for skiing, swimming, rafts, and Jet skis. Taking a boat trip through the locks of Lower Granite Dam provides a unique view of our area, both above and below the dam. The Dunes on the other side of the river are accessible by boat and provide for lots of sun and fun. Cruise ships pass weekly on their trek between Portland and Lewiston, Idaho.
