Horsethief Reservoir is a fun place to spend a hot summer weekend. Idaho Department of Fish and Game keeps the reservoir well-stocked with beautiful trout, so fishing is always excellent. There are endless back roads and trails in the surrounding area to explore and the reservoir has a developed campground.
