Camel's Back Park Reviews & Ratings
Tucked away from the hustle and bustle, North of old downtown - this has been a favorite place to go since I was a child. Today I appreciate the beautiful grassy landscape, clean from garbage or graffiti. A recent discovery (returning to the area after a few decades) is the miles of trails behind the park. Mt. Biking is both challenging and thrilling thanks to well groomed trails. Hikers and riders share the trails with courtesy and kindness. Love it!
Lots of fun for everyone. There are lots of trails and hills for running. It is a good place to run. Also good for smaller children as there is a very large park that is always fun. Good place for an event large or small, a picnic or a company barbecue. The streets to got there are quite narrow. I strongly recommend this place
Amazing park, and an amazing view at the top! A short hike to the top of Camel's Back, but my oh my what a steep gain in elevation! Only complaint I have is that the exercise area has a concrete base. I think having bark or rubber instead would be a lot safer.
We loved this park. The playground at the bottom of the hill was a lot of fun for the kids. Then we hiked to the top of the hill for some great views. Finally we did a nice 20min hike to the children's museum / center and played inside and out. Fantastic for young kids.
The hike was worth it to the top of Camel's Back. You can enjoy a breathtaking view sitting on these cut stone stairs in the sky, overlooking Boise. My toddlers could enjoy this, due to the staircase access to the top. Not easy if you run up them, so you can make it as challenging as you want it to be.
