Farragut State Park is an expansive park that is rich in beauty and history. In attempts to protect from coastal invasions in the 1940s, the U.S. built the Farragut Naval Training Station. After World War II this facility was no longer necessary so the U.S. government sold the buildings and the Idaho Department of Fish and Game bought 4,000-acres of land. Today, Farragut is filled with scenic forests and the sounds of birds and wildlife, rather than soldiers and weapons. But visitors can come to Farragut to learn more about its fascinating history at the site's museum and various interpretive programs. Films on area history and geology are also shown daily at Brig's Pacific Theater. For those more interested in exploring nature, the park features over 20-miles of beautiful trails that bring visitors through lush forests, sandy beaches, and fantastic campgrounds. Farragut State Park has more activities than you can hope for. It is the perfect place for educational retreats, youth groups, family reunions, and individuals who have a zeal for nature.
