Once a WWII era naval training station, this 4,000-acre park offers one of the most stunning untouched views of Lake Pend Oreille. Campsites and hiking and biking trails are plentiful, but a trip to the park isn’t complete without a visit to the Museum at the Brig, located in the former confinement facility at the Farragut Naval Training Station. The museum’s displays include boot camp, naval and war memorabilia.
Things To Know
- Start your visit to Farragut State Park at the visitor center located at the west entrance.
- The park has over 40 miles of trails for you to explore. For those who like a challenge, take the Highpoint Trail to the Scout Trail and hike up Bernard Peak and look back across the lake at Farragut State Park.

- Eagle Boat Launch provides the only major access for boaters on the south end of Lake Pend Oreille, the largest lake in Idaho.
