Massacre Rocks State Park

Macabre name aside, the Massacre Rocks State Park presents a convenient location to the Pocatello/America Falls region. The park is part of the Idaho system and has been designated a historic park. Hikers can spend time walking trails that were once part of the Oregon Trail, the wagon route pioneers used to make their way west. The Snake River runs next to the campground, and there are canoes and kayaks for rent at the park. RV sites have 30-amp electric, water and sewer connections. Pets are allowed but must remain leashed in the park. Guests can use the showers at the campground. Bouldering problems can be found in the park on the many glacial erratics strewn about the land.
