Caribou National Forest and Curlew National Grassland

Caribou National Forest and Curlew National Grassland

The Caribou National Forest was created in 1907 by President Theodore Roosevelt. The Forest now covers more than 1 million acres in southeast Idaho, with small portions in Utah and Wyoming.

Minnetonka Cave, in beautiful St. Charles Canyon northwest of Bear Lake, offers a half-mile of fascinating stalactites, stalagmites, and banded travertine in nine rooms. From mid-June until Labor Day, over 20,000 people visit the Cave and take the guided tours. The cave stays a brisk 40 degrees all year so bring your jacket! Minnetonka is one of two caverns administered by the Forest Service. Within St. Charles Canyon are campgrounds and a large group use areas with fishing and hiking nearby. Keep an eye out of resident wildlife such as moose and deer.

Directions: Located east of Pocatello, major access routes are US Highway 30 via I15 and State Highway 34.
