Move aside Russia—Idaho's Moscow is an outdoor destination all its own.
Camp amid rolling Palouse prairies in Moscow—Idaho's outdoor-loving college town. Beyond the University of Idaho, there's a whole lot to explore. Drive to a lookout on Moscow Mountain, bike the Palouse Recreation Trails (38 miles of them), or kayak the Snake River. You can even hop over the state border to explore nearby Pullman, Washington. The area's reservoirs are a magnet for campers. But you can also get snug in an RV park. Free Wi-Fi, picnic tables, hookups, and other amenities keep you charged for your next Moscow adventure. You can also park your big rig at the Latah County Fairgrounds (assuming it's not fair season). For striking landscapes, check out Hells Gate State Park—home of the deepest gorge in North America. The shaded campsites are the perfect home base for trout fishing on the Snake River. McCroskey State Park is another must-visit spot. Take in the sweeping vistas from Skyline Drive, or discover 32 miles of hiking trails. If no-frills camping is more your style, head to Robinson Park. This grassy county park offers tent camping and limited RV camping just a few miles from Moscow. For a more classic wilderness camping experience, drive up to St. Joe National Forest in the Idaho Panhandle. Wild rivers, elk herds, and logging relics await just outside your cabin or campsite.
