The Burley and Rupert area along the Snake River has its attractions. Lake Walcott, one of the first bodies of water created by the Bureau of Reclamation in this region, is one of them. And there are events, such as boat racing on the Snake River near Burley in the spring. The most spectacular landscapes, however, can be found in the mountains to the south, over in the valleys of Albion and the City of Rocks (a national monument). These are places that remind the visitor of the canyonlands of southern Utah, but in some ways eerier. To drive through the City of Rocks is to pass through something that in an odd way almost feels like a ghost town that never was. The campgrounds in this eTrail include: Brackenbury, Bennett Springs, Lake Cleveland, Thompson Flat, City of Rocks, Bostetter, Father & Son, McClendon Springs, Sublett Creek, Mill Flat, and Lake Walcott State Park.
