The Sawtooth National Recreation Area consists of over 750,000 acres of protected land in one of Idaho's most scenic areas. It's easy to see how the area got its name, with jagged mountain ranges making for eye-catching skylines in every direction. In addition to mountains, the area contains hundreds of high alpine lakes, some large enough for boating, and the headwaters of four area rivers including the Salmon.
The Sawtooth National Recreation Area is located in central Idaho, about 85 miles north of Twin Falls in the Sawtooth National Forest. To learn more about the area, click the Overview button on the left, or select the type of activity you're interested in.
