Murtaugh Lake Park in Twin Falls County

Where is Murtaugh Idaho? What is Murtaugh Lake Park?

Murtaugh is a rural town near Twin Falls, Idaho. Murtaugh Lake Park is a few minutes from the town of Murtaugh, located on Murtaugh Lake. The park is a beautiful, peaceful family-friendly park with fishing, camping, RV spots, picnicking and boating.

We stumbled upon Murtaugh Lake Park when we finished a different adventure, and we were looking for a place for a picnic lunch. We were very pleasantly surprised when we found this hidden gem of a park! Even though we were just there for a short time, we decided it was a place we would like to come back to and spend the night in our iKamper!

We saw families boating, kayaking, fishing, jet skiing, camping, and having fun running and playing in the park!

OK this Idaho native had never heard of the place. Wish we had your sight about 20 years ago when we were RV'ing. Amazing facility right on the water!
