Camel's Back Park

Readers' Picks

Camels have been known to go upwards of a week without drinking water, but that's too long for many Boiseans to go without visiting Camel's Back Park. The land was acquired from a relative of former Mayor Herbert Lemp in 1932, and the park dedicated in 1965. Today, Camel's Back is 11 acres of grass, playground equipment, tennis courts and picnic tables bumping up against the Boise Foothills and giving easy access to a network of trails that goes for miles. Of course, few parks can contend with the sloping sand slide down the southern side of the "hump"--one of the best sledding spots in the city when the snow flies.
