Farragut State Park boasts 4,000 acres of pristine Idaho wilderness with over 40 miles of trails to explore. Drink in outstanding views of Lake Pend Oreille at sunset, take an afternoon jog through staggering pine trees, or take the kids on a family-friendly hike on one of the trails that weave alongside the lake. Before it was a park, the area was used as a WWII era naval training station. Now, visitors can tour the Museum at the Brig, which is located in the former confinement facility at the Farragut Naval Training Station.
