Rest Area Guidelines
Safety Rest areas are
designed for temporary use and do not offer services for extended
periods of stay or over night camping. If you need a place to
rest over night and wish to camp, please feel free to enjoy any of
the camping facilities and public campgrounds in Idaho’s State Parks
and National Forests.
For more information about
Idaho (including complete lodging and campground listings), obtain a

Travel Guide from

Idaho rest areas are a
stopping place for your relaxation and comfort. Please help
us keep them pleasant by using them as they are intended and by
being considerate of others.
ITD is committed to doing
all we can to provide a safe driving experience on all state
highways. In fact, highway safety is a prime consideration along
the highway corridor, from design through construction and then with
every maintenance effort. Still, the key to preventing accidents,
injuries and fatalities is individual driver awareness. Remember to
always wear your seatbelt and never mix driving with alcohol or drug
use. If you become sleepy or fatigued, stop and rest. That is one
prime reason for ITD’s rest areas.
