Heyburn State Park is a public recreation area in the U.S. state of Idaho. It is located almost entirely in Benewah County, with a small portion extending into southern Kootenai County. The park was founded in 1908 and is the oldest state or provincial park in the Pacific Northwest. The park has 5,744 acres (23.2 km2) of land and 2,332 acres (9.4 km2) of water on three lakes: Benewah, Chatcolet, and Hidden. A dam constructed on the Spokane River in Post Falls in 1906 raised the level of Lake Coeur d'Alene, connecting it to the park's three lakes. The surface elevation of the lakes is 2,125 feet (648 m) above sea level. The park's year-round recreational opportunities include camping, boating, hiking, horseback riding, fishing, and picnicking.

  • Want to visit this park from last 1 year and finally got a chance last week to go there. Park offers great scenic views and have nice picnic area. Found it to be more useful for people looking for boating (and I don’t have one). I really enjoyed the bridge walk and views from top of the bridge. It is worth going there but only if either you wanna do boating or cycling.
  • Camped here for 3 days this past week and my family had a blast. The scenery was beautiful, the hiking trails were great, and seeing the wildlife was awesome. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Also visitor center was very educational and our kids had a fun time earning their Junior Ranger badges.
