Welcome to Beautiful Camas County, Idaho

“Gateway to Adventure”

Fairfield , Idaho, located an hour from Sun Valley, Idaho…is emerging as Idaho’s best  “undiscovered” small ski town with its friendly, casual atmosphere and  year-round recreation:

Winter sun and fun includes excellent powder runs, snowboarding, groomed skiing and cat skiing at  Soldier Mountain Ski Resort and adjacent unlimited back-country ski  areas on National Forest Lands; hundreds of miles of beginner to expert  snowmobiling trails, Kiteboarding, Nordic-skate and cross-country  skiing.  Area lodging is limited, so make reservations early!

Spring and Summer: With a wide-open prairie and adjacent Forest Service access, the high  mountain desert dry air with long, sunny days and bright clear night  skies provide outdoor enthusiasts optimum recreational opportunities.   Excellent mountain biking, hiking, camping, fishing, horseback riding,  bird and wildlife watching, golf and photography.  It’s an undiscovered  paradise for recreation and RV travelers.
